Expert review by : Scott Bartley (pcworld.co.nz)

Sony PlayStation Portable

 

Portable entertainment What in tarnation is a games console review doing in your favourite PC magazine? Don't worry, we're not turning into PSPWorld; we do have a good reason for this deviation from our usual fare - Sony's little handheld gaming device...

Stereo speakers are built into the thing but are useless in a noisy environment, so use either the supplied earbud-style headphones or plug in a pair of your choosing

Consumer review (mightyape.co.nz)

"Great value"

 

Ideal for someone who has an hour to burn when out from home, throw in a top game like Resistance Retribution, pop on some ear phones and for a cheap price your in gaming heaven.

Consumer review (mightyape.co.nz)

"Economical I guess"

 

The original psp is a great portable device with a vast range of games. One of the things people like is the connectivity (WLAN), without it the console becomes sort of bland. Great for those who may not want multi-player action but, would be better...
