Sony PSP / PSP Go – “Holiday Gift Ideas”

Already have a PS3 or PS3 Slim? What better way to compliment it then with the new PSP Go by Sony. This is Sony’s latest update to its popular PSP line that caters to the more adult, upscale gamer. With a price of $249.99, this isn’t your kid’s PSP. With the PSP Go, Sony saw fit to remove the UMD drive that is found on the regular PSP and instead added a 16GB internal hard drive (expandable with Sony’s Memory Stick Micro format). Games are installed on the hard drive via wireless connection and can be purchased from the Playstation Network store. This however means that you will not have a physical copy of the game like you would with the regular PSP. Everything is digital with the PSP Go and will be stored on the hard drive.

If the $249.99 price tag seems a bit steep for you, you can still purchase Sony’s PSP 3000 system for $169.66. The PSP 3000 features the same specs as a PSP Go except with a larger screen, UMD drive, but no 16GB hard drive. Instead memory expansion is regulated only to Sony’s Memory Stick Micro format.

As with all PSP systems, the PSP will fully integrates with your existing PS3. Use it to access your PS3â„¢ system wireless and enjoy music, movies, pictures, and games streamed wireless anywhere in your home to your PSP machine. You can even use it as a remote for your PS3â„¢. Now, because the PSP is wireless, it has the added benefit of having internet connected apps. You can browse the internet with the PSP’s native browser, view RSS feeds with the included RSS reader, or even text and IM with the included Skype app.

You can’t go wrong with either PSP systems. Both play a full library of PSP games. Both allow for connectivity to Sony’s Playstation Network, and both feature rich multimedia experiences by allowing you to view your movies, music, and pictures. Both systems are available in a variety of colors and bundles.
