Sony is widely known for making very sleek products and PSP fall exactly under that category. When you first open the small tiny box, it could be said, without exaggerating too much that the wide and big screen of PSP is absurdly gorgeous, the most beautiful screen I ever seen on a handheld devices before, and that is saying something.
For those who are familiar with PS2, the control should be easy to pick up. The graphics are very nice and crisp, accompanying by the clear, immersive sounds. PSP uses Universal Media Disc (UMD) format to play games and watch movies, and the process is literally flawless and easy. The mini disc as i called it is kept in a plastic case to ensure that it is scratch free, not to mention that games does not possessed region encoding such as PS2 games, which mean the worldwide market is open for both fanatic importers and collectors. UMD movies however do have region encoding protection, but with bigger capacity of memory sticks already out, consumers can uploaded any of their favourite DVDs on the computer and resized them to the PSP format, using abundance of applications available to download free on the internet.
My only gripe with PSP however is that it seems very fragile and prone to breaking. But again, this has been the case for many Sony products and electronic gadgets alike. Fear not, as with fixing services offer by website such as Consoles&Gadgets, this worry has been a thing of the past.
