Lighter, slimmer, and sleeker update of the original PSP; AV output for video and game playback on TVs; improved load times for games; retains all of the impressive media and online features of the original PSP; deep lineup of great game titles that offer better graphics than Nintendo DS games.
Despite improvements, problems and annoyances remain: UMD load times still poky compared to Flash-based DS games; volume levels still less than optimal; limited gameplay options via video output; USB charging option is cumbersome; screen is still too reflective and a magnet for fingerprints; subtle redesign missed the opportunity to add even more features.
While it may not be a must-have upgrade for existing PSP owners, a host of subtle improvements make the latest Sony PSP (aka the PSP 2000) an even better deal for anyone looking for a solid portable gaming and multimedia device.

PSP: what an amazing device, big bright screen, near-PS2 level technology in a package not much larger than the original Game Boy Advance! It has a micro optical disc drive and is capable of playing super games on Universal Media Disc out of the box, like the Monster Hunter Freedom series, Burnout Legends, Need For Speed Carbon, Wipeout Pure, Daxter, etc. With small modification ($20 invested in a Pandora battery and Magic Memory Stick) it can play most of my old PS1 games (Gran Turismo 2!), plus emulators for DOS (Doom, Duke Nukem 3D), GB and GBA (Pokemon series), NES, SNES, Amiga, Commodore 64, Neo Geo Pocket, Sega Master System, Genesis, Game Gear, and more obscure old systems. It can also play homebrew games developed for the PSP.
Each iteration has advantages and disadvantages, the 1000 series (Phat) is larger and heavier with slower loading times, but is easier to hack and capable of playing more homebrew games. The 2000 (Slim & Lite) series is thinner and lighter, faster loading of disc games, has composite and component television output, most models are easily hackable, some homebrew games will not play. The 3000 series (PSP Brite) is like the 2000 with a brighter screen and a built in microphone, but is much less hackable. The newest PSP Go is smaller, has a huge internal memory, but has no optical disc reader, and is not easily hackable.
The PSP can also play movies, MP3s, and has WiFi connection for internet.
I have a 1000 and a 2000, they replace my Sega Nomad, my Gameboys(O,C,A,SP), Sega Game Gear, Neo Geo Pocket Color, and NES clones. Plus, I'm replaying DOS, PS1, Atari, and SNES games on the go. I thought it was a good deal when I first bought it, just for the commercial games, and I'd been considering buying a portable NES clone, and/or a GamePark 32, but I discovered that the PSP can do it all. Games new and old, movies, music, internet. It has to be the best gaming investment I've ever made.

The new PSP is 19% thinner and 30% lighter. Should definitely notice the difference as soon as its in your hands. Here are the pros and cons
+ Video Out to your TV. Watch your UMD movies and Games on your screen. This is the perhaps the best feature of any handheld.
+ Much lighter, feels really good in your hands.
+ The D-Pad has been upgrades. Fighting Game Lovers rejoice!
+ The analog nub also feels more responsive.
+ Buttons are raised making them easier to click.
+ The LCD is brighter, has a higher refresh rate and the colors are more vibrant.
+ UMD games load faster.
+ The memory has been doubled in this unit to allow developers to build caches they can then use to make games load much faster.
+ Even games that dont implement caches, load faster due to an automatic new caching done by the system.
+ Ability to eat less battery life.
+ Daxter Game is included! This is one of the best games for the PSP
+ 1Gig memory stick is included.
+ Family Guy freaking sweet collection UMD included.
+ Price. For $200 you are getting a lot. PSP system, a game, family guy compilation, a new color, and memory stick. All for $30 more than PSP slim black. I would definitely recommend getting the bundle.
-Yes the packaging is a bit cheap.
-UMD tray may not impress. It feels cheaper.
Hopefully you guys enjoy this little system. It really is a sexy looking thing and with critically acclaimed titles like crush and Jeanne d'arc and other games like Final Fantasy 7 Crisis Core, Wipeout Pulse, and God of War over the horizon, you wouldn't be a true gamer without one. If you like your handheld games at the same quality as your console games then what are you waiting for. pick this up.
I REALLY love this DEVICE and found it appropriate to say that this device did have like 10 problems at launch date.
CONS: I will get rid of the cons first because I find that they are the most tedious in this situation. People want to know what problems this may have, so I will just get them out of the way
Bulky: This PSP device (101K) is TOTALLY bulky. This was dubbed PSP brick, or BRICK HANDHELD, it was best dubbed that, and it fits.
WEB USAGE: This was later corrected by an SW update, but it seemed any website with an SD card, and with file cache all that off, and on, etc. It would say web memory filled. I find though that this glitch has been fixed, and hasn't been a bother to many because it still functions, and it's a gaming device, you aren't using a gaming device for the web.
Pros: This is also the most needed thing too, because people want to know WHY THEY SHOULD GET THE DEVICE.
The screen: I was like WOWOOWOOOWOWOWO, because it's so big, can be used for video usages, gaming, UMD VIDEOS, UMD MUSIC, sD card viewing. I used it for all of that, and never had a complaint. My uncle has had crashes in the SD video viewer, and sometimes UMD's load incorrectly, but he's mostly became an XBOX360 freak for the most part :)
The toggle things: Dang it I know what they are called, just cant think of it LOL, I am playing games tons on it, and I always find this to be responsive.
3.5 MM headset jack: YAY, if I'm somewhere I cant have loud games, and I want to have them, just put in a very easy to find set of headphones, and you are set! If you have any complaints with any of this, it is a very easy to use device. So if any issues found, just mess around with it, or contact SONY, I no longer own a PSP so I can't answer questions
But overall, really responsive and I love this gaming device.
