anyone (or in my case, anyones children) have the playstation PSP? its one of the things we got our son for Christmas, the games are almost as realistic as the PS2 and tonight we got it online wireless and surfed the web (pic below) and set up the account thing and he's now playing against someone head to head online (Madden 2006), i guess for me being raised up on the commodore64 and atari this just blows my mind a bit :toothless

heres where we were surfing FSB ...

I love the PSP's but I don't have any cash to buy one myself. They are pretty bad ass though.

My son has one. I just got him 1GB of memory for it for Christmas. And he got a 30 GB video iPod. Spoiled kid. But...I won't let him connect it to the web. He has a PC for that....and I monitor it closely.

portable dvd players still use regular dvds.....

what sucks is say you have a favrote game on your regular ps2, but you want to play it on your psp you have t obuy it again. so now its like 100bucks instead of just 50

I just think its a gimic for playstation to rack dough

mine too, only child, he will be 14 next month so we're loosening the reins a bit, plus he figured out how to get it online to surf the web by himself :toothless i had to figure out how to play the games online though

we got a bunch of the PSP's around the barracks here...portable DVD players/PSPs can keep ya entertained pretty well :thumbup...i personalyl don't want to shell the money out for reasons that Dustin brought up..when i get to the sandbox i'll just buy an Xbox360 instead of having such a small game station with such a $$$ tag.

They are fun to hack, you can get a version of Linux on them too. Before sony released the web browser it was more popular to hack them. Ah the broing life of nerds in a IT dept when the boss is gone
