Psp

Hey, is the PSP really worth getting, or is it just a waste of money. Does anyone have one, and do you have to pay extra for all the features.

Later,

Another MTBiker

its an awful lot of money for somthing that doesnt serve that much of a purpose, imean play video games and being a nerd in the safety of your home is one thing, but where are you going to go where you need to play video games, and there isnt a tv? the only logical purpose i see is long car rides when you arent driving or talking to anybody.... so its for traveling-anti-social-video-game-nerds. id rather have my ps2 thanks.

not worth it IMO.

I get carsick when reading/watching movies/playing games in the car so it's pretty much useless for me.

I sure as heck ain't bringing something that expensive with me to school.

I wouldn't buy one myself, but it's a cool gadget. I'd rather a large hard drive based MP3 player.

A PS2 is certainly portable, but not in the sense that you can use it while carrying it around...

It's hard to drive and play video games, or am I the only one who has a license?

No, I have a driver's license too. But you may be the only one who has a car. I only use a PSP while riding my bike.

Take the money you would've spent on a psp, and buy a crapload of beer, women or a fast bike.

I guarantee you'll thank me later.

The PSP is a waste of money unless you're a game freak.

Does it not work as a portable dvd player as well? Personally, if travel by bus or plane a lot it is well worth it.

yeah, it's a game system, DVD player and I believe it can play CD's as well.

Basically just a portable playstation2 like the name suggests.
