Well “new” probably isn’t appropriate since it is my first PSP. Zach recently loaned me his and I was immediately in love. It plays actual adult video games unlike my, now traded in, DS and the games are not only ports of titles I love like WipEout but also new and interesting titles like Patapon and my favourite Ratchet and Clank.
I think the fact that I can play proper racing and adventure games really sold me on the console but there have been a few interesting benefits. The PSP has built-in wireless unlike the DS and it also uses a standard USB cable to put the system in USB mode so you can read and write data to the memory card. Very handy and very cool. I already have downloaded a few games and demos and will probably get a larger memory card this weekend.
Probably, for a father of twin girls, the best feature is the “Hold” mode that you can use to instantly turn off the system but get it to store the game state so you can come back to the game with no interruptions.
