Heh, im really bored today
We all have something that we like and dislike about this machine. I personally dont like that it came out with a lot of people complaining about defects in their system...thats about the only thing that i didnt like, there's probably more i just cant think of stuff right now. I do like the fact that it is a mini computer because it can store text, photos, videos, music and play emulators!

And those lame cases that break easily yet no one has released any replacement cases. :/

The L and R buttons may get stiff over time,

the glossy (PLEASE FINGERPRINT ME) finish,

the gaps between the buttons and D-Pad for dust to crawl in,

the sound coming from the bottom of the system...

I think i'm done for now.

Hey it would also be great if manufacturers of handhelds would just place a protective screen cover on the screen when you first buy it - like mobile phones!! i don't care if they want to charge an extra 5, but at least it would be put on professionally without any dust, air bubbles, or fingerprints! that's another problem with the psp (and other handhelds).

I dislike that I can't play Homebrew on the bastard right now, but at the end of the day, I'm not gonna complain about it, as it was my fault for not checking things out before I bought the thing. :)

Yah, I hate all of thoes... but do they really compare to that evil white leather strap?! I dont think so.

They tried to make is tendy and so it matches those white earphones - but instead the messed it up. Has anyone tried black leather shoe polish?

Value Pack accessories aside (I really don't think they should count), I think the PSP is a gorgeous portable system. Its sleek, has a beautiful screen, the games are suprisingly good, and doubles as an mp3 player, and up to a gig of removable memory. Sure, the PSP versions beyond 1.0 may not be able to run homebrew and have all the cool apps we'd like, but everything else is still pretty much sweet.
However, I am a hardcore fps fan, and if Sony had just put the joystick on the other side of the machine, it would have been awesome for games. I am digusted by the "lock on" shooters that will be released soon.

I really think they could have raised the analog stick a little.. its just not comfortable.

that would be cool but it would be less attractive with it raised

The white strap is crap!

The screen is fantastic - apart from it marking soooo easily.

I agree with 1timeuser, buttons do need to be a touch higher as after a while your fingers start to get a bit stiff, thought it was my age! :P

the grip is also uncomfatable, if you dont find your self interested in a game, your hands ache like hell.

stick it back on, it pops straight back. No1 pet hate with psp, 1.0 only.
When you come out of usb mode putting on homebrew and want to test it; you scroll down and just as you get to press the button to enter memory stick games, the psp realises there is a usb and puts the cursor on it, and tricks you into booting the game. And it takes a good 20 seconds before the home buton works...

Fo shizzle. That gets me every time. The parental lock method can prevent this (and UMD auto-booting on power up), but it's slightly annoying all the same.

Dislikes: the games are kind of rubbish at the mo. hoping for timesplittaz, tekken, tomb raider, and a port of ps1 metal gear.
Likes: that maybe one day we'll be able to use the camera attatchment as a webcam, and to run skype on psp. and of course the sexy 16 million colour screen.

For anyone who's bought a umd movie...whats the video quality like?
