Reviews & Research

CNET Editors' reviewExcellent

  • THE GOOD

    Light, slim enclosure; screen offers better color reproduction than that of earlier PSP models; improved AV output for video and game playback on TVs; built-in Skype with onboard microphone; retains all of the impressive media and online features of earlier PSP models; deep lineup of great game titles that offer better graphics than Nintendo DS games.

  • THE BAD

    Despite improvements, problems and annoyances remain: screen exhibits noticeable jaggies and scanlines during high-motion video and gaming sequences; UMD load times still poky compared with DS games; screen isn't glare-free, and is still a magnet for fingerprints; Web browser and data input can be cumbersome; no built-in storage; subtle redesign missed the opportunity to add even more features.

  • THE BOTTOM LINE

    While there's probably not enough to get owners of previous the PSP to upgrade, newcomers will find the PSP-3000 to be a solid portable gaming and multimedia device.

    Mostly awesome, but some annoying quirks.

    I'll admit, I'm probably voicing my opinion a bit too soon. However, I've fiddled around with this quite a bit in that period, and for the most part, really like what I see.

    From the beginning - the interface...it uses an interface that is basically the same as the PS3 (and, from what I've seen, all Sony Blu-Ray players). It's simple to navigate, allows for extensive customization, and looks really sharp.

    It also has an internet browser which, once you get used to "typing" with one cursor, isn't half bad. It loads some pages outright, and other their mobile version. The difference, though - the screen is a lot bigger than my Blackberry, and a lot brighter. Hurrah! Additionally, once you're done with your internet, it shuts the wireless off, saving some of that precious battery juice.

    I haven't really had the opportunity to check out the remote play function with the PS3, but look forward to that (and hooking up, via composite, the PSP to my television).

    But, all of this is just fluff. To the point - the games.

    It handles relatively well. It's not the most comfortable portable gaming system I've ever used, and the position of the left toggle doesn't really help. Playing while it's plugged in to the wall is also not simple. Once I found a comfortable position, however, it was relatively smooth sailing. I do like the comfort of the DS a bit more.

    Also, it's loud. Annoyingly loud. "click, spin, click, spin". The problem with the media, I suppose. I can live with it, but I don't have to like it.

    The media also leads to some load times that, while not unbearable, can be a bit annoying from time to time.

    Those complaints aside, once the handling is figured out, it provides for a great experience. The graphics on the games can be really top notch, and the color and clarity of the screen is wonderful (and density allows for larger, more defined characters). I got mine with a protective case, which I would definitely recommend. Nintendo had it right on when they made the GBA and DS foldable. Even the PSP Go fails here, and it just seems too...fragile.

    So, overall, a good piece of equipment. The game selection includes plenty of games that are not, and would not be able to be, supported by the DS. Factor in the internet connectivity, complete with browser (I don't know if the DSi has a browser), and I would say that the PSP is on par with the DS. They are two different machines, however, with different purposes and games. The new prices on the 3000 make it more affordable, and more or less worth it. Haven't downloaded and watched a movie yet, but I would venture a guess that the screen will provide a large enough, and clear enough, viewing area to enjoy, something the DS definitely lacks.

    Good purchase, and I'm glad I made it!

    PSP 3000 is the way to go!

    The recently released Sony PSP Slim 3000 has caused quite a controversy among new PSP owners who purchased their Sony PSP Slim 2000 units within the last few months. It has not even been a full year since Sony released the PSP Slim 2000, with its biggest feature being the ability to connect to a TV through AV output. Many are arguing that Sony's latest addition to its handheld family should not even be considered an upgrade of the current model. Let's take a deeper look into the features of the PSP 3000.

    The 3000 was unveiled at the Leipzig gaming conference last week. The unit has the exact same dimensions as its counterpart, the Slim 2000. However, there were a few upgrades. Sony gave the PSP 3000 a new anti-glare screen, which is supposed to make playing the PSP while outside a bit more bearable. This new LCD screen also features a broader color palette than the older model, which accounts for a brighter, more vibrant picture. Along with this new screen, Sony added a built in microphone to the 3000, which will allow many people who have access to WiFi hotspots peppered through-out a large city to utilize the PSP as a phone-like device with the built in Skype software.

    Along with these hardware improvements, the Slim 3000 also features a few cosmetic improvements as well. The 'HOME' button no longer exists, as it has been replaced by a PSN button. It functions exactly the same as the old button, but instead has the Playstation logo instead of the word 'HOME'. Also, the brushed aluminum ring which was featured on both the PSP Fat, as it has become known, and the PSP Slim has been replaced with a more polished and thinner chrome ring. The edges of the PSP 3000 have also been smoothed a bit so that it feels more comfortable while holding it in your hand.

    Sony PSP 3000 will be available this October, featuring the colors Piano Black and Mystic Silver. All in all, if you're already a proud PSP 2000 Slim owner, you might want to skip this upgrade as the anti-glare screen is only a major upgrade if you find yourself playing a lot while outside. However, if you're looking to purchase a PSP, the 3000 is the way to go.

    This item is available in my store at a reasonable price:
    Rare color, red, blue, green yellow, dont miss it!
