      I had a chance to test out Sony’s new PSP 3000 while on vacation. It is the third generation PSP to be released by Sony, with minor improvements over previous versions.

      First up, the already magnificent screen has been made brighter, with more color depth and anti-glare technology, so playing while outdoors is a much less frustrating exercise. The console is slimmer and lighter, feeling much more comfortable in the hands, and games load quicker thanks to a memory upgrade. It also features a TV out port and wireless interfacing with


      the Playstation 3 console.

      The PSP has always been a multimedia device instead of just a portable games console, with support for UMD discs and memory sticks to store all your videos, music and images. Given the sheer size and clarity of the screen, the PSP is one of the best portable video players you can buy, but falters in two key areas. Firstly, the UMD format has proven to be wildly unpopular, and thanks to unavailability of recordable media in the format, users have to rely on memory sticks to ...


      • carry around their personal media collection. Secondly, the PSP is in serious need of a built in hard drive for media storage as the proprietary memory sticks are both costly and limited in capacity. If Apple can cram a 120GB flash memory into the iPod Classic, then surely Sony’s engineers could find a way to include even a modest sized drive into the PSP. This, I think, would be the most welcome upgrade for future iterations. Also, there are too many physical buttons on the devices face that tends to look
        cluttered, especially in this day and age of sleek lines and clean interfaces.

        The PSP is really a Playstation 2 in your pocket, and games are simply fantastic to play. The graphics are smooth and polished, the sound is excellent, and the control schemes work pretty well considering the translation from console to portable lost the analogue sticks and two back buttons along the way. Graphically, it is the best portable games machine you can buy, and provides hours of entertainment not only from games, but from a fantastic multimedia capabilities as well.
