The PlayStation Portable at Walmart Video Games
The PlayStation Portable (or PSP) ia a handheld console from Sony Computer Entertainment. It is the first handheld console to use an optical disc format titled the Universal Media Disc (UMD). It has a very large, single screen, in comparison to the DS Lite's smaller, dual screen format.
The PSP is considered to be technologically superior to the Nintendo DS Lite but has not managed to offer competition to the DS Lite, which has consistently outsold the PSP.
The PSP has gone through a number of changes since the original launch. The PlayStation Portable Slim and Lite was the successor to the original PSP design and is 33% lighter and 19% slimmer than the original PSP and the model number became the PSP-2000. The current version of the PSP is the PSP-3000 which features an improved LCD screen and better color range, contrast ration and pixel response time.
The PSP-3000 has a host of features including built in Skype, complete with a built-in microphone, Sony Memory Stick compatibility, ten different colors, infrared port, mini USB port, Wi-Fi and internet access.
The PSP can also connect to the PlayStation 3 allowing viewing of photos, listening to music and other features. Both are available from Walmart Video Games.
There are a lot of great games available for the PSP including Chessmaster, Pro Evolution Soccer, God of War, Grand Theft Auto, FIFA and others. The new bright screen of the PSP-3000 makes playing handheld games a delight. The PSP is generally considered to be the superior handheld console teechnologically, however, the Nintendo DS Lite is what caught the attention of the public. That does not mean there is no merit in purchasing a PlayStation Portable. There is a lot of software support for the PSP and if you own a PlayStation 3 then it is compatible with this as well. Not only that, the large screen gives it great multimedia capabilities that are better than those offered by the DS Lite in many ways. You can check out the DS Lite and the PlayStation Portable from Walmart Video Games.
You can also watch movies on the PSP and there is absolutely nothing wrong with the quality, you can transfer your music collection to the Memory Stick and listen to it on the PSP as well. Possibly for this reason it is seen as the more advanced handheld console of the two, though sales figures have not put this to justice.
