The Playstation Portable, or as it's more commonly called, the PSP, is an all-in-one handheld entertainment system.

You can play games, watch high quality movies, listen to music, look at your photographs, and even browse the internet.

You would expect the game cartridges to be the standard dull colour, blowing on them to make sure they play properly. Not this time.

The PSP uses it's own unique cartridge: the Universal Media Disk (UMD). Basically a mini CD in a protective case, the UMD is the hardware used to store games, Movie releases, and music.

The video quality of the PSP is excellent, with a 4.3" LCD display, capable of a 480x262 screen size.

The battery officially lasts 4-6 hours whether you're playing a game or watching a movie (longer when playing music), but honestly, it all depends on the battery's charge status (can be finnicky), and age.

The standard PSP-2000 Bundle comes with the system, AC adapter, and battery pack. You'll need to buy a USB cable to connect the system to your computer, and a Sony Memory Stick in order to save games, movies, photos etc. Meaning theres no real internal memory usually found in protable devices.

PROS:

- Excellent graphics

- 5-in-1 media

CONS:

- No built in memory

- Can be hard to find games that make full use of the graphic potential of the system
