Thumbs up How many Looking forward to the PSP!! wo0t

Quote:
Sony Computer Entertainment America Inc. announced today the North American launch details for its highly anticipated PSP(TM) (PlayStation(R) Portable) handheld entertainment system. Available through retail outlets on March 24, the company continues its consumer-centric legacy with the release of the PSP Value Pack for a suggested retail price of $249.99 U.S./$299.99 CND. In addition to the revolutionary PSP hardware, the PSP Value Pack contains an unprecedented added-value package of accessories and entertainment content, including 32 MB Memory Stick Duo(TM), headphones with remote control, battery pack, AC adaptor, soft case and cleaning cloth, movie/music/game video sampler UMD disc including multiple non-interactive game demos, and for the first one million PSP Value Packs shipped, a special UMD video release of the feature film Spider-Man(TM) 2 from Sony Pictures Entertainment.
With that taken in mind, despite the small hefty price, the PSP is getting closer and closer to American release date. How many of you are interested in purchasing the unit, whether pre-order or not. I for one have my name on one and am already drooling over this hotness!!





Oh ya baby....


Nintendo DS What...???...

Looks like Atari vs. Playstation

I had a dream last night that I had a PSP along with Pro Evolution Soccer 4 on it and that it was cool or something. I don't know why because I don't intend on buying one unless you can do stuff to it like you can do with the GBA or the XBOX.

BadBoy, Where did you place your pre-order for the PSP. I pre-ordered mine up at GameCrazy through Hollywood Video. I'm anxious, I can wait no longer! Bring on move videos

No pre-order for me. I enjoy the thrill of hunting a bargian. It's gives purpose and masculinity to my otherwise routine and pwned by the girlfriend life.

I preordered it when I picked up the DS. However, I decided to get a refund and buy a PS2 flip top instead.

The final decision was based off of my distaste with Sony's customer support. I'm going to be waiting a few months or however long it takes for faults not to be features. Hopefully, by then they'll be selling units vanilla.

This way I get the best of both worlds...

Most of the time, preordering games isn't required, but you can preorder anything at EB/Gamestop. At PS2 launch, I wish I had preordered a memory card...
