Sony's ass is probably getting pretty sore from the amount of **** they are pushing out of it.

UMD is FAIL for two reasons, one technical and one corporate:

1. It was sloooooow. Load times on the PSP were unbearable, and that is in no small part because of UMD. But more important...

2. It represented the latest in Sony's never ending stream of trying to foist new, proprietary media formats that NOBODY asked for and NOBODY wanted upon us. I;'m glad you enjoyed your movies on UMD, but you are in a small minority...most of us were pissed off that we were actually being asked to buy movies for the same price as a DVD that could only be watched on a PSP. It was just crazy! Search OCN for more posts from me about it at the time, as I recall I wrote entire novels railing against Sony for this.

I took mine in my pocket literally everywhere, so you are wrong again on that.
Either you wear cargo shorts 365 days a year, or you don't mind walking around with a giant brick in your pants. Because you, my friend, are crazy if you consider a PSP to be pocket friendly!

GBA SP was a great GB, and if you like that style of games its easily one of the best, but there are games on PSP that are indentical to console quality length, graphics, sound, soundtracks ect that would be impossible on on SP.
GBA SP was console quality too...SNES quality! But yes, I know what you're saying. The PSP's near PS2-quality definitely wowed and impressed me when I first got it, but the shine just wore off for me. Since I don't consider it very portable, I wound up playing it on the couch more often than not...and I had a real PS2 sitting there, may as well play that if I'm on the couch!

Well that is a good question. 5-8 hours for 2D is about par for the course, but that drop to 3-5 hours is pretty steep for 3D gaming. One thought might be that the novelty of 3D will "balance out" the shorter battery life, i.e. people won't mind it as much because of what they are getting in return. That depends on how good the 3D really is, and also on how fast a 2nd generation with better battery can be released (novelty doesn't last forever, just look at Wii sales these days!)

I don't wear cargo pants, I wear normal jeans. Worked out fine for me, even with the bulky 1000's.

Also UMD didn't load that slow, at least I never had a problem with it. Sure it wasn't blazing fast but that's just how disc based media is generally.

As far as UMD movies costing the same as DVD's, sometimes. I usually got mine for really cheap as bundles or used. You can buy a HUGE collection now for dirt, and it's still great to watch it on the go. I see what you're saying about portable DVD players, but for those of us who didn't have many DVD's or a portable DVD player the PSP was the best alternative.


I can understand the PSP not fitting YOU, but on paper even I don't know how you could argue it as the best portable system, especially once you look at the custom firmware community. I don't think anyone can beat it for an all around portable system.

Anyway, cheers to PSP2 and 3DS, getting both launch day.

What I don't get is flaming on the PSP's battery life...I can play Harvest Moon for a little over 7 hours on the extended battery (with brightness turned down of course). Their making the PSP2 as "powerful" as the PS3, in the sense the image will be just as crisp...on a screen with a quarter of the resolution.

Battery life isn't an issue for me either, not only do I have a back up battery but the bigger official Sony batteries are awesome.

Yes, optical is slow; but UMD was slower than a DVD. Load times were long enough to take a nap through...you really were a patient gamer, I have to give you credit.

They did eventually start bundling a few titles with DVD+UMD for one price, but a) they waited until it was clear UMD was not taking off as a movie format before they started, and b) that one price was more than the price of the DVD alone. Mistake! What they're doing now with Blu-Ray/DVD combo packs makes more sense, they learned from their UMD mistakes.

Well...of course you can, it's a dead format! You can get HD-DVDs really cheap too!

Keyword there, "extended". I assume that means you had to buy another battery to give it battery life it should have out of the box. (Clearly I am out of touch on PSP since I didn't even know they had an extended battery.) Plus, turning down the screen brightness is a compromise you shouldn't have to make...it's a video game, what's wrong with being able to, you know, see it?

To be sure, I'm not just picking on Sony in this area. I wouldn't buy a smartphone until iPhone 4 because of the battery life of its predecessors, and I have been quite critical of the packaged batteries in my various Canon HD camcorders over the years (45 minutes? Really?!?)

You know I have a DS but I absolutely hate it, and I think it's like way over rated. Nintendo in general has been a let down to me since DS/Wii days ( like that recent creepy Mario viral video ), but with 3D the line up they have already announced is SICK, and that's what I've been waiting for. Finally some games for adults that hopefully are less gimmicky than 99% of DS games. 3D is also a plus.

More excited for PSP2 though since I'm a hardware nut ( PC gamer what can I say ).


Also, PS3 was a great system from Sony for non-proprietary stuff. CF/SD/ProDuo port ( old models ), 2.5 SATA HD, and standard power cord. Can't say that about many others.

To be sure, I'm not just picking on Sony in this area. I wouldn't buy a smartphone until iPhone 4 because of the battery life of its predecessors, and I have been quite critical of the packaged batteries in my various Canon HD camcorders over the years (45 minutes? Really?!?)
Well it was the battery I got my PSP with lol...at the time I thought it was the stock bulge it came with. Very true though...modern desktop replacements can't run more then a few hours without shelling out for massive batteries too.

How's the iPhone 4's battery life, I'm curious. I can barely go a day with my HTC and it's rather annoying.
