PSP 3000 PlayStation Portable – A Handheld Entertainment and Gaming Gold Mine

The PSP 3000 for Gamers on the Go

I am a gamer. If I’m not a gamer, I’m THE gamer! However, like most people today, I’m a gamer on the go! Which means as much as I want to just sit at home and play my video games, there are times when I have to leave the flashing lights and the big sounds behind to do things like, I dunno – work!

If I didn’t have to, and I could sit in my surround sound chair all day, I would, trust me! So I decided to check out the latest portable gaming device from Sony and what I found knocked my socks off!

PSP 3000 Initial Impressions

Being a Sony follower, I’ve always been partial to the Sony PlayStation, the controllers were smaller, it came (to me) in a prettier package-so it wasn’t a hard jump when I decided to pick up the new PSP 3000. The package was clean and looked like it had everything I had already come to know and love inside it!

When my purchase arrived, I found I had come to the right place! Not only did it have the sleek black look of my PS3, but it also had all the features I loved!

A Brighter Screen on the PSP 3000

A quick charge and my PSP 3000 PlayStation Portable was ready to be putty in my hands! The small device is compact and rechargeable so I never have to worry about trying to steal the batteries out of the extra TV remote.

For starters, the PSP 3000 has a large full color display (4.3 inches to be exact) capable of displaying nearly 17,000 colors!! (My Crayola box only ever had 24, psht!) Watch full length high definition movies from the comfort of your pocket!

The brightly lit anti-reflective screen makes it ideal in well lit areas and works better outdoors offering better visibility and increased contrast! That long flight won’t seem so long now with my games, movies and music right under my fingertips.

Talk to Me! The PSP 3000 has a built in Microphone

Interact with games like never before with the PSP 3000s built in microphone! With the mic, you’re able to chat with other gamers in teamwork and in head to head competitions. The possibilities are endless! Whether I want to send a greeting or talk strategy over the opposing team, my PlayStation Portable has made it simple!

Use Your PSP 3000 to Access Files Online

The built in Wi-Fi on the PSP 3000 lets you access the internet from any internet hotspot, so now I am able to stay connected where ever I go! With 64MB of memory built right in, I’m able to download music, movies, videos (and so on) to my heart’s content.

For storage expansion, the PSP 3000 has a Memory Stick Duo slot that I can extra memory to as I need it.

The rechargeable battery is a standard 1200 mAh and with a full charge will last close to 5 hours whether you’re playing games, playing MP3s or watching movies. The battery is a definite improvement over the older PSP models.

You Can Do Lots with the PSP 3000 But Get it for the Games

As with everything Sony puts out, the PSP 3000 simply does everything I need! If I want to take a break from gaming for a bit (hey, it happens) I can check out a movie or listen to some tunes.

The travel ready device is small enough to comfortably carry in my pocket (or better yet bag) yet large enough to take my media with me. What do I like the best? It’s a great machine! Everything about it is smooth and flawless. (Right down to its seamless feeling ‘joystick’)

Playing games with it feels as natural as playing with my PS3 controller! With the large built in memory of the PSP 3000 I’m able to carry music, movies, and more galore! (Really, it’s like having the world in my pocket!) The PSP has become a tech toy no gamer should be without! With all the stuff this Bad Boy does, it’s hard to say ANYONE should be without!
