    I've got $243.00 on me right now and the PSP is only $169.99. I've known that the memory stick is $39.99 and a Greatest Hits are only $19.99.


    Now, should I've got some questions.


    - Is a 1GB Memory Stick sufficient to put in atleast 30 songs and save games?



    - What games do you reccomend?



    - Should I definetly get the PSP?

    This is probably a simple question but; can you name at least 5 games for the PSP that you are interested in?

    Maybe it'll be worth it then.

    Most people find it worthwhile for the homebrew/emulation scene, and I don't think new PSP's allow you to get into that area anymore.

    Well, their's Burnout Legends, GTA Liberty City Stories, and that Syphon game.


    I have reasons for getting the PSP, for the music and the games because I always go to road trips. But I've heard that the battery only lasts about 3 hours. Is it true? Ohh and God Of War is coming out, that is going to be good.


    I'm going to Best Buy, and I'm going to see if they have the Entertainment Pack that includes a 1GB memory stick, a movie, and a game. It's only $219.99, is it a good deal?

    It last about 4-5 hours. Mattering the game, i got almost 7 out of daxter game, and 6 out of monster hunter. Yeah theres plenty of great games for it IMO, it's worth it. I'd get the PSP for 169 and buy a 2 gig on ebay for 30-40 bucks.

    Uh...if you already have a DS, it is a good deal. Otherwise it isn't because it still is regarded as pricey.

    I like it, but not for the games. The internet is cool to use, the music is good, videos are a nice quality, along with pictures.

    Yes.

    And my one gig memory has 40-summin songs, 6 vids, and about 30 pics.

    Yeah if you like the games, get it. If you are buying it for the brand name you will probably get dissapointed.

    Have you bought it yet? :sag
    1) Yes.
    2) Lumines [or something like that]
    3) No.

    I was really dissappointed when I got my PSP. But.. I mean.. you know.. it's a PSP. It's still cool to have and all.

    I have been interested in it, but all the games that I am interested in on the PSP have gotten terrible reviews...the Prince of Persia game, the Splinter Cell game...probably the God or War game will also. If it drops to $99 then I may be all over it. Also if the memorystick came in bigger sizes and it supported more video and audio codecs it would make an excellent MP3 player and media player

    has God of War on PSP come out yet? What is the story? If it is the ending of the story started in the first 2 games I will obviously HAVE to buy it and I will curse Sony's name while I do it.

    What kind of gameplay does God of War have?

    I hear it's like Kingdom Hearts. Is that true?

    God of War on PS2 is an action game with a little bit of platforming. A little like Prince of Persia with more fighting, or Devil May Cry.

    At one part, the screen froze and you were given options. What's that all about?

    Ah, that's part of the battle system. During certain moments(boss fights and such) the screen will flash with buttons for you to press. Wen you do it correctly your character does a nicely choreographed kill.

    I wouldnt buy a PSP were i you...you tend to get very disapointed by them:(
    If you dont have a DS, get one of them. There are better games on it, to be honest. For all the potetial of PSP, it failed at games.
