    psp Airports vending GBA, PSP portables

    via Joystiq

    I took a 9:30 a.m. EST flight out of Atlanta this morning, en route to Los Angeles, and on the way to gate A17 I happened upon the latest in vending machine technology: the Zoom Shop. Using the touch screen to the right, one can purchase (with an accepted credit card) any number of little gadgets to enjoy on the flight: all styles of iPod and associated accessories, along with some gaming goodies care of a Nintendo Game Boy Advance SP ($79.99) and Sony PSP ($249.99). A convenience for sure, but there weren't any games to buy -- what a tease!

    I think the Idea of selling the PSPs (and GBAs, too of course) that way is a great thing! Why not? Preparing for a long flight by buying a PSP

    But As already said before: selling NO games at the same time makes no sense. What kind of PSP package was that? Not even a DEMO Disc included? I mean with atleast a Demo Disc, the PSP would at least be usable.

    But have u ever thought about the fact that the Battery is empty when u buy a PSP? Or do airplanes now have sockets? I have't seen one when flying from Germany to lLondon (maybe on airplanes that fly intercontinental?)

    when i bought my psps the battery was at 57%. i turned it on without charging it at all and it said
    Battery Level: 57% after i got through the setup.

    Airplanes have sockets, but not regular power plugs. They use the car adapters.

    man, the people who started this did not think things though. I mean really how good is buying an ipod for the flight when it wont have any music on it.

    I think GBA, DS & PSP are a good idea providing they actualy put movies & games in there. Then people will have something to do while on flight.

    --edit--
    The only good thing about this is if its in the international section. It has to be tax free.
