i just bought this and it's pretty sweet. it feels a lot cheaper and more flimsy than the other model, but its screen and buttons all are top notch. i like the new firmware update - you get skype and internet radio. i'll probably use it mostly for music, web, and videos... games if they get some more cool ones but all in all it's a good system. it nails the whole media package well and goes for a great price considering other similar devices.

As it turns out i thought i had a slim until today when I noticed my friend had an original black psp that looked exactly like mine.My local Wal-mart must have kept the old psp models out until they sold...

I'm still considering getting a '360. But, the new PSP looks like a damn good buy. Especially considering the '360s' hardware failure rate/price. And a good deal of PSP games now go for $20 a pop.

I picked an excellent time to buy a PSP - reminds me of when the original Xbox was revamped right before I bought one

I need it! I have a black one, but the speakers in a better place ( I have never liked where they were located) , quicker load time, lightness, video output, thinness, change of the headphone plug placement, I will have to upgrade!

well i personally think psp kicks ass. i used to have the old one but i needed money, so i sold it to my brother. i cant wait until it comes out!!!

The old PSP, though pretty, was a functional disaster, it did loads of little things wrong that culminated in gangly unwieldy hardware that simply didn't feel designed for the software that was made for it. This looks to improve things dramatically (or maybe it's because it's fixing so many of the pet peeves I had about the original system), though not a total cure-all for the originals design, it's more than enough and the asking price seems fair. I've been looking to go full-handheld for a long time, and the release of this system will probably push me over the edge.

The system looks awesome, I just wish they would come out with some better games for it.
