PostSubject: i want to buy a psp   June 7th 2010, 6:40 pm

so tell me about it. i want one that i can play avi's on. one that i can play mp3's on. do i need to buy a modded one for this? does the go have card slots or only the og one? also i see that with the og, you can buy movies. since the go is dl only, what's the deal with that one? oh, and the web browser, any good?

pros - cons of og vs go?

I don't know anything about the Go but I had the original one and you can put anything you wanted on the memory cards. The cards were just standard Sandisk Pro Duo sticks (like $40 for 8 gigs).

I'm guessing the Go would let you do something similar.

and it reads avi and all that jazz?

after doing a little research, i think i'm gonna get the 3000, just so i can buy used games and shit. so fucking excited now.

if it this does all the shit that an ipod does and more, what's the use of an ipod?

yeah if you want used games, the 3000 is the way to go. both have MS2 card slots. some games are coming out only via download now and some good classic games are still unavailable via download so ultimately you get more bang for your buck with the 3000. the go has better battery life and is easier to carry. the 3000 has a slightly larger screen. the go has better image quality, brightness and contrast. the 3000 is cheaper. the go has a special that comes with some free games right now. the 3000 is easier to mod. the go has no moving parts and thus has a longer shelf life. the 3000 has a umd drive.

for me, I like the go better but it's pretty close to a wash.

the browser is kinda lame. not sure if it does flash, I haven't tried. the keyboard input is a bit better than messaging on the 360 once you get used to it but still sucks compared to something like an android or blackberry device.

my main concern is playing pirated flicks and shit. so if it plays avi and mp3, i'm sold. i have to drive up to oregon (passenger) next month and i hate that fucking drive, so if i don't have something to keep me occupied on the fucking 5, i ain't going.

there is no drm protection for video files for the psp. I think you'll have to convert the files over to mp4 but that is simple enough. let me know if you have any questions about that and I can help you out.

the interface for the music player is kind of weird. like it's hard to shuffle without reorganizing how the folders are organized. there is a separate music program called SenseMe thats still a work in progress but it does shuffling and visualizations.

a killer for me was that the go has bluetooth. that really swayed my decision on what to get.

Just use vuze. It converts just fine. Also, you can download stuff already formatted for psp off pirate bay. Because of the screen size, you often need way less in terms of resolution & video quality. No need to waste space.

I don't think I was able to use avi when I had one because I remember converting any videos I wanted to use but it may support it now.

vuze? you mean the p2p client? that converts? that would be cool. do you know if it converts vob?

i dl'd some music videos in vob form and i'm having a bitch of a time trying to convert them to avi.

yeah, vuze works great for it. you can even transcode while you dl. I doubt VOB will convert though. those include menu systems and such, right? umd images might work though. never tried.

one thing i agree with is the lack of games. i've checked out quite a few and with the exception of the gta games, there are very few i am interested in.

i think i may just buy a used one for the trip and if i'm not into it, sell it.

there are a shitload of rpg, fighting, strategy, puzzle & retro games to be had. I don't regret buying mine one bit & I have yet to pay more than $20 for a game. all the ps1 games on psn are the best of the best so you can go back and play everything you didn't. plus if you get one of the large models, you can mod it and make it do whatever.

but worry is right. I give it a week.

is this i a good deal? lots of stuff, but the psp is the 1001, so it's old, yeah?

http://sandiego.craigslist.org/nsd/vgm/1780826212.html

ok. nevermind.

1000 - 32mb ram - no output or mic

3000 - 64mb - output and mic.

bah.

pretty much all the stuff i want to buy for it though. some decent movies and both gta games. dammit.

here's another question.

i was looking at the button layout for star wars battlefront, and i noticed that it has an analog stick right below the direction buttons that is used to move the reticle. now how in the fuck are you supposed to use that when your movement is controlled by the d buttons. you supposed to stop moving to shoot? makes no sense. the analog should have been on the right side. fucking sony and their shitty controllers.

after looking up and down and all around, i can't figure out why anyone would buy the go as opposed to the 3000. for one, physical media is/would always be more reliable. what happens when you lose the memory card or it crashes? all that shit gone? i'd rather have the disc than have to rely on dl, plus you can buy used. with the go, everything has to come from psn. f that. also, the screen is a tad larger on the 3000. then there is the fact that the go just seems awkwardly shaped when compared with the 3000.

well tomorrow i'll find out if the psp is even worth it in general, or just an over hyped pos like the ps3.

also, according to what i have read, the psp supports avi. that's a plus.

physical media is way less reliable than software. you can lose physical media or break it. you can't lose software that's attached to your account. unless sony goes completely out of business. by then your psp wouldn't work anymore any way since it's comprised of moving parts. the go is a better system with a better screen and fits perfectly in a pocket. sony just fails at follow through but then again they always have.

You should get a PS3 to go along with it.
