    I've had a PSP since March and it is the coolest gadget I have. The power of the PS2 in the palm of your hand. Amazing! I went into my local games store and played it on a Saturday and everyone flocked round to see it (It's not avaliable in my country yet!). Get one if you haven't already and the two games I highly recommend are Ridge Racers and Archer Macleans's Mercury.

    ok I have had the psp since march, but since it was for my birthday, I got it at the end of may... Now that I've had alot of time, I recomend getting a brand new this very day! It is the best thing out there... Although the 360 will give it a run for its money... But PSP is the only portable ps2, or xbox around... while a xbox has alittle better graphics, it doesn't go with you everywhere, psp plays music, movies, and pictures, while also surfing the web...

    All seven of the games I have are fun! Although not all of them are Halo good, some of them give it a run for its money...

    Do not buy an IPOD when you can get a PSP, it plays music just as good and actually does other things too! The one down side is that, the memorysticks can add up fast... If you get a 1GB you will never have to worry about memory again, or if you have alot of songs get the 4GB and then your good.

    Also you have to buy a game that says Infacture on it some where, and even then there is not alot of online games yet, but there will be the more people buy there stuff... If your looking for a online game I suggest Twisted metal...

    I'm having a problem transferring MP3 music from my PC to my PSP.

    I have the USB cord that hooks into the PSP and then into the PC, but for some reason the PC doesn't recognize that the PSP is connected to the PC. Is there something that is supposed to happen that indicates that everything is connected and that I can start transferring?

    To see if it is pluged in... On mine it makes a beep sound and pops up with windows media player... Also did you go on your psp to USB connection... Cause you have to hit thatonceit is plugged into the computer... Also all files for songs must be in a mp3 mode, which means no wav, or wmv, or anything else...

    If this still dosen't help then give me more details...

    Bought a 2GB memory card for mine and an extra battery. And of course am always playing Star Wars Battlefront II or SOCOM, or am watching Batman Begins on mine. Seriously, PSP's are definately worth it and I love Battlefront II for it. Probably the best game I have. Ahh life is good, with a Sony PSP that is...

    I am really thinking of Buying a PSP I have the money and whatnot, but is it necessary to buy the 1GB memory disk? I don't need the music, I already have an iPod so the music isn't necessary. So is the 1GB memory.

    Also when I buy the router, I can access the internet right? Does that mean I have to pay to play online games? Or can I just connect when I get the internet running?

    Also Besides Battlefront 2, which games would people recommend?

    Jesse. Battlefront 2 is AWESOME, so is Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories,Infected(its a zombie game) and im getting Xmen Legends 2 today but I dont think you would like that.Madden 06 is alright, some of the gameplay is slow.It also has a crap load of UMD movies for it and I just got seasons 1&2 of Family Guy for it.The $250 PSP with regular memory card is not a good of a deal as the $300 PSP with 1GB memory card cause the 1GB memory holds a full length movie or 2 that you can put on your PSP(Star Wars)and it holds more pictures and stuff.You can only access the internet if your in a hot spot or near a wireless router.I dont think you can play online games for it, yea im pretty sure you cant use it for that.

    Oh and for the record, GTA: Liberty City Stories for the PSP is THE GREATEST GTA game next to San Andreas, plus it has a multiplayer mode I haven't tried yet.Hope that helps.

    Stay fresh playa......

    >>Well since I'm not allowed to talk about PSP games anywhere else<<

    It's not a matter of not being able to talk about PSP games elsewhere (you could, for example, make a thread for a particular title or series found on the PSP), but you essentially made a thread for general discussion of PSP games, which is what this thread is for. Redundant threads are generally locked.

    Bought Tomb Raider this weekend and... my poor Rebel Dream (my PSP's name) really needed a second analog stick. The graphics and the music are incredible. Lara has never looked better and the story is definitely better than AoD, but... it's really annoying! The camera never is where I want it to be, it makes my moves slower and it can get really boring sometimes. I also played the PS2 version and everything's the same except for the second analog stick that is a real help... [face_frustrated]

    It shouldn't take me longer than 10 hours to finish the game but... I've been stuck and/or dying non-sense because of the controls. [face_frustrated]

    PSP2 rumored

    According to Brian Ashcroft of Kotaku.com Sony is planning to release a redesigned PSP, and possibly planning to unveil the device at this year's E3. Though Sony has repeatedly claimed that no redesigns are in the works, various third parties have apparently told Kotaku that they are pressing Sony for a release window so they can tie the launch of their upcoming PSP games to the release of the upgraded handheld. Rumored improvements include a new screen (possibly a touch screen), faster load times, improved buttons, 8 Gigabytes of flash memory, and a built in camera. Ashcroft expects a 4th quarter release.

    If this does happen and I hope it does. I hope it comes with a drop in price. I've been really tempted to buy a PSP, but I don't see myself justifying the $199 other then the fact I can play roms on it.

    Hey all :)

    I was just wondering, should I get a PSP? The price has gone down and I can probably afford it now. But I'm really hesitating on getting it. I've heard that the camera controls for most of the games aren't that good. There are also only maybe a couple of games I'd consider buying for it right now and a couple in development but none of them scream out at me "PLAY ME NOW!!"

    So, should I get it now, wait to get a PSP2 that might fix some of the problems the PSP1 has, or should I pass on this handheld completely?

    I'm thinking of getting a PSP, mostly for the exclusive Star Wars games that are coming out soon. Problem is, I'm not sure it's worth it for two or three games. What exclusives are there that are must haves for the PSP?
