I had 5 games, and got my playtime out of 3 of them. One I got for free and never played (SOCOM FTB2), and I couldn't really get into Metal Gear Portable Ops.

GTA vice city stories= great with tons of replayability.
Worms Armageddon= great, but would be better if I knew someone else with the game for ad-hoc.
Loco Roco= cutest game ever, I felt like an 8 year old Japanese girl while playing.

Time to move on though.

I just bought one over Christmas :) I LOVE it so far! I got the Daxter pack with a 20% discount. That game is fun! I also played the God of War demo and I cant wait! That is the main reason I bought it:) Well other than homebrew and emulators ;)

Need to find a place to get GOOD CHEAP mem sticks for it though - man they fill up fast! I havent even started to put movies on it yet and the 2-1gb and 1-2gb are full with a TON more waiting for it!

I like the internet radio on it now! It makes it kinda nice if you dont have any mp3s with you.

Bummers you sold it though :(

I had the first version, so no internet radio... Check newegg.com for memory cards.

The Lexar 4GB pro duos are often on sale at Fry's for $35. Sandisk ones are rarely on sale, but if you're lucky, you can catch them at $35, too. Check out the weekly ads for local retailers. Personally, I prefer Sandisk over Lexar. Genuine 8GB sticks can be had for around $100. Sony's supposed to release 16GB sticks on Q1 2008 but expect those to cost twice the price of the PSP, itself.

I'm not really up to date regarding what games have been released for the PSP. Right now, the only game I'm keeping tabs on is Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII. I only have four US games for my PSP - Lumines, Wipeout Pure, Tekken Dark Resurrection and Street Fighter Alpha 3 Max. While they are quite fun to play with, you'll probably get bored with them in no time.

What I find most fun about the PSP is the homebrew. Being able to play games I grew up with is awesome. Bookr (PDF reader) is also pretty useful when I need to read handouts on the go. Saves having to print them out. My 4GB MS is filled with anime episodes, Tekken Dark Resurrection, Xenogears, emulators, ebooks and manga scanlations. That's enough to keep me occupied for quite a while provided I have somewhere I can plug my PSP. Running on just the battery (2200 mAH), that should still be good for 5~7 hours of entertainment.

I'll give you my address to send all your psp stuff too :mrgreen:

I really enjoy the PSP - with homebrew out there, emulators, etc it really makes it fun to play with! Playing old NES games on a Sont product is just too darn cool ;)
