All About Rasenganfan2
2Oct 09So lately, I've been wanting a new PSP. I have the original model PSP, the PSP 1000 aka the PSP Fat. The main reason for my wanting one isn't because of the slimness or new screen, but because of the upgraded tech specs. The PSP 1000 has 32mb of Video Ram and PSP CPU (1 - 333 MHz operating frequency) processor. The PSP 2000/3000/Go have 64mb of Video Ram and PSP CPU (System clock frequency 1-333MHz) processor. The processor is actually faster in the later versions of the PSP.
So, yesterday, I was in GameStop. I asked if I could hold one of the used PSP 3000s. I held it, and it was smaller, thinner, and felt a lot more comfortable to hold. That really settled it. I MUST get a new PSP.
After some researching online, I learned that the PSP 3000 has a new and improved screen, has no ghosting, and the colors are a lot more vibrant. In exchange, there are minor scan lines that are somewhat noticeable while playing games. I've seen it, and it's not very bad, unless you're focusing on them. It's enough to notice, but it's not that bad. The upgrades are defanatly worth it.
After a little more researching, I saw that there's going to be a new form of PSP, called the PSP Go. Instead of using UMDs, it'd be a download-only variation of the PSP. You'd buy the games off of the PlayStation Store(part of PlayStation Network), instead of buying the UMD from a store in UMD format. OK, so I'm running out of ideas of a good blog. Basically, after a long time of thinking, I was either thinking of getting a PSP 3000 (Dissidia Bundle), or a PSP Go. Both look very good, but I'm stuck in limbo.
Here's something I said in a comment on the PSP Go hands on that GameSpot did:
Honestly, the PSP 3000 and PSP GO are on the same playing field. What I mean is...
Uses regular Memory Sticks
Larger Game Library
Sometimes scan lines appear
No support for Bluetooth
Smaller, sexier design
Don't have to carry around UMDs
16gb internal flash memory
No form of UMD conversion, unless you plan on buying games again
An extra \$80 than PSP 3000, or an extra \$50 than a PSP 3000 bundle
No support for regular Memory Sticks
No way to play on TV and charge, unless you spend money on a dock
So yeah, they both have their pros and cons.
Hope you enjoyed my first blog, and my blog about PSPs.
