Eric Corp Gamer's RU Exclusive Review 7
PlayStation Portable

History of the PSP:
PlayStation Portable - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I first got my PSP in Christmas 2007, and I also received 3 games for my PSP: Castlevania: Dracula X Chronicles, Final Fantasy, and Silent Hill: Origins, and I was pleased with all of them. Since then, I been receiving many games like the Yu-Gi-Oh! Tag Force series (except 3, obviously), Mega Man X: Maverick Hunter, Dissidia: Final Fantasy, and so on. Anyway, let's get on the review.

NOTE: My system is a PSP-2000, but it's similar to the PSP-1000 and 3000, just so you know.

Graphics: A+
The best graphics of all the portable gaming systems in the seventh generation era,
mostly because of the PS2-like graphics and the high definition screen, it makes it look really great on the system.

Sound: A-
Well, the music is obviously CD quality, and that's a good thing. Also, most of the games have voice acting, too, and it sounds amazing. The sound also, is really good and clear to the ears. My only problem is the volume of the system, I can barely hear it, even at the highest volume unless I plug in headphones or speakers(is it me or not?). Despite that, the sound is top-notch for a portable gaming system

Selection of Games in my PSP library: B+ (based off my library so far)
The PSP library is really good, as the library I've gotten so far are really good and it makes me pleased. I'll get in more detail as later, I'll review games on the PSP in my library, later on.

Design: B
The design of the PSP is great but, it's just vulnerable to any scratches on the screen, if only it had a bendable top like the DS did, but unless you have a case, it'll be unlikely for that to happen. Even so, beggars can't be choosers.
Despite that, the PSP design looks tight but, just vulnerable (kinda).

Overall: A-
I have to say, the PSP is the best since the DS (I think). With amazing graphics, sound, game selection, and decent design, make this system RECOMMENDED!

If you were reading, this is based of the games I've gotten, not the whole library itself.
EDIT: A+ is now B+

Remember, it's just my opinion. That's okay. Even so, it's still a great portable.
"PSP 2?" it comes to mind...when I think about it.

Re: PlayStation Portable

Well, at least it's better than the new PSP model, PSP Go. Don't ya think?

I mean, no UMD, can be bad. I mean, what if you have too much games on the 16 GB. Once, you reach the limit, you can't get anymore. At least, with a UMD drive, you won't have to worry about that.

Did you stop and think that's why the previous owner sold it?

I think the PSP is a cool portable but I wouldn't buy it unless it was cheap. Also the newest PSP is a money grabbing gimmick and I think it will hurt their customer loyalty.

Re: PlayStation Portable

So what you're trying to say is you damaged your used PSP and you're judging the system based on that?

Re: PlayStation Portable

If it's new why would it have dust in it? THE PLOT THICKENS!

But really this is getting off topic. Let's keep the conversation to PSP and not games or if dust is really dried soda.

Re: PlayStation Portable

Well, Disgaea 2 hasn't been out of my PSP since I got it, which is a good 6 months ago. I got about 200 hours on it so far.
