yeah, it looks SOOO cool. But my parents don't like handheld game-devices (they can controll how much time I use a console, but not a handheld, cuz you can use 'em anytime) I have a few questions.
#1 are there only a few PSP compatible memory sticks? cuz I gotta a REALLY off-brand 512mb SD card for like $35, could you do that with a PSP?
#2 When is FF VII coming out for it?
#3 When will a browser come out for it?
#4 How much is the MB per minute ratio of the MP4 format?
#5 What is the included software like?
#6 What demos come with it?
#7 How long is the average battery life?
#8 How long does it take to recharge?
#9 Can you get xtra batteries (and if you can, how much would they cost?)
#10 How well are the controlls laid out?
yeah... if you can answer any of those... THAT WOULD BE WICKED AWESOME!

*you have to use a memory stick duo - the psp format

#2 When is FF VII coming out for it?
*no idea.

#3 When will a browser come out for it?
*you can actually access a browser integrated within the download tool in wipeout pure

#4 How much is the MB per minute ratio of the MP4 format?
*not sure.

#5 What is the included software like?
*sucky

#6 What demos come with it?
*none, they lied.. its just videos of the games...

#7 How long is the average battery life?
*i think about 4 hours?

#8 How long does it take to recharge?
*i think i forget.

#9 Can you get xtra batteries (and if you can, how much would they cost?)
*you can, but i havnt seen them so i dont know how much.

#10 How well are the controlls laid out?
*pretty good... almost the same as the regular ps controllers.. but the analog "stick" isnt very good at all in my opinion.

yeah... if you can answer any of those... THAT WOULD BE WICKED AWESOME!


i have the psp and ds.. i favor the ds more.. right now it has a smaller library but its gonna be awesome once acds comes out and new super mario bros. and all the other goodies planed.

I think they actually use the Sony memory sticks. But I dunno if there's other memory card slots. They do have a webpage though. I'll look it up for you.

Got it...

PS: Where did you get such a great deal on an SD card?

newegg.com, it doesn't work in my MP3 player tho...

yeah newegg has a 1 gig duo for only $100. I would use the PSP for movies. I have a PC that you can hook-up a VCR or DVD player to. Convert all movies to my PC and then move em to the PSP. You can get good VHS movies for like $6....

The DS is by far the best! Nintendo have released a new generation of gaming with 2 screens and a touch screen. If the PSP is anything like the Ps2 then it will break within 3 and 4 years.

Hehe, you have to love Nintendo, they are amazing!
