Thanks to American relatives visiting, I had the oppurtunity to try out the new Sony PSP. It is very impressive. I even did the Wipeout browser hack so I could browse the net via my 802.11g wireless network.
The screen is extremely impressive, the quality of the graphics is quite literally shocking to someone like me who remembers the days of the original Gameboy, the Sega Megadrive, and even the Atari 2600. Packing so much graphical power into such a device is astonishing. All the bells and whistles make it a very attractive product, not sure I will ever buy one, but I think they will be the birthday and Christmas present once they are released here. Forget the Nintendo DS, Sony will take this market.
