The PSP sounds like a great machine, and my initial impulse is to buy
one, but I can't envision a lot of circumstances where I would need to
do "gaming on the go" - I do most of my gaming on the "big screen" at
home. I think it would be an easier decision if the games on the PSP
could also be played on my Playstation 2 with some device or something.

If you don't already game on the go (or see yourself starting to then
the PSP is most likely not for you. Better to save your money and stick
to the console in that case.

Good point. So you can still physically be there in the same room and
make it seem like you spending time w/ the family when you're really
off doing you own thing. The best of both worlds?

Don't need to be on the go to play portable games. I like using handheld
gaming while watching telly :-)

Portable gaming is great when there's something on the TV I don't want to
watch but others do, like the Oscars.

Yeah me too. Now I finally have something to do when my wife is watching
one of her shows.
I think I'll probably end up using it more at home than on the go.

Ive been playing wipeout both at home and the office. Ive never liked
handhelds because the screen was too small and so I wouldnt use it at home
why bother. But this screen is so nice and the game has ps2 quality. Im
playing wipeout and its a blast. Good music , and visuals are stunning. Im
glad I bought it.

I'm going to wait for the price to drop.

Anyways, the Xbox 2 and PS3 is going to come out at the end of this year -
You might as well save your money for that instead ; )

You might want to check your release dates.

That can be true for some, but I mean that specifically in his case...

You sounds exactly like me. I'm not a fan of handhelds but the PSP
stands out to me. Part of me is very tempted by the portable power,
the widescreen, and part-MP3/movie player of the PSP. Another part of
me is turned off by the high price, the dead pixels and the so-so
launch titles.

I guess I'll just take a wait-and-see approach and see what happens in
the next six months.

Obviously you aren't alone. The PSP isn't doing that well in America.

Yeah, isnt the ps3 going to be out next year ? Probably spring being the
earliest. Xbox 2/360 is supposedly out later this year. But since im waiting
for the ps3 I have at least a year.
