Intro to the Sony Playstation Portable PSP

Sony Playstation

At the time of it's original release, the PSP was very expensive and I wasn't too interested in another handheld device. Nintendo took care of that at a better price point for me. The PSP never really appealed to me until the device really faded with the NGP announcement. With shelves still stocked with used PSP titles, I decided it was time to snag a PSP 3000.

The PSP-3000 had a minor redesign including a new screen and inbuilt microphone, and has since been followed by the PSP Go.
