    I'm a bit late into the PSP game, but here I am. After my local Long's Drugs was clearing out the value pack for $100 I couldn't resist.

    Initially I thought the PSP was a turd (I guess it was just the lack of good launch titles) and with the route of the DS Lite. While I love the DS, the PSP has caught my heart. The biggest selling point for me was Vice City Stories⠃ƒ¢â€š ƒâ€šÃ‚¬Ãƒâ€šÃ⠚¦ Damn I love the soundtrack! I fell in love with Vice City on the PS2 and Vice City Stories rekindled my love for the game and gave me an option mind when purchasing the PSP.

    Obviously, the screen is the best thing. A 4GB card works wonders with movies (I have 10 on the memory card), along with MP3's, music videos, etc.

    Picked up Ratchet & Clank: Size Matters which is a blast! Also picked up Wipeout Pure from eBay yesturday and a few other games.

    The PSP & DS Lite fit perfectly inside the PSP Folio Case I picked up from Buy.com.

    I also got a 3800MaH batter and a USB charge/data cable from eBay.

    I'm not into the modding scene, so I upgraded it to the latest firmware and love it.

    The ability to remove 5 (or so) screws to swap the face plate is a big plus for me. It makes me less anxious about getting scratches on the unit since I'm not actually scratching the screen.

    Anyway, thatâà ƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã ‚¬Ã¢ââ⠚¬Å¾Ã‚¢s all for now. Just wanted to say hi.

    yeah man, modding is awesome you shouldn't have upgraded... you can get even better resolution vidoes with the custom firmware, and on top of that, play games from your memory stick (like"isos" that are back ups of the games) and SNES and NES and genisis, etc

    If you upgraded to the latest firmware, then you can't enable homebrew, so your missing a big plus of the PSP. Of course, it's all your choice since downgrading has a risk of bricking your PSP

    Oh believe me, I knew the "losses" I would face when upgrading the firmware, but it's all good. I'm happy.

    I'll happily pay money for games that I enjoy, so that's no biggie.

    For the most part when I'm flying around, I use my phone and watch TV shows and movies on that (320x240 3.5"), which isn't great, but it's more than acceptable.

    With regards to emulation, I do that on my cell phone and DS Lite. I rarely ever play emulated games, since I've done that in years past, so I'm bored with that scene.

    I got a Wii a few months ago and that keeps me happy if I'm every in the mood for "classic" games.

    So yeah, I guess I'm not modding my PSP, but will happily read the forums and contribute what I can.

    who says we dont? its just better to be able to have a few games on the memory card instead of having to carry around multiple umds

    What does it matter??!!?? he said he was going to try to contribute. If you dont have a PSP you can still learn and help people. Whats wrong with that!
    "Owned" (often typed in leet speak among gamers) is an internet slang word used commonly in gaming circles to acknowledge a form of superiority through the downfall of another entity, be it another gaming clan, or a single user.

    lol relax... its "odd" that someone would waste their time trying to relate to a scene they don't want to relate to. It's like in high school a "jock" is trying to chill with the "rockers" but has nothing to say cus he doesn't know the music or the culture... pointless lol...

    lol... Yeah, that's it...

    Naw, even though I have decided not to mod my PSP, I still enjoy reading about all the technical aspects. I am using an R4 for my DS, which is great.

    I check out all the satellite forums to learn more about the hardware. Doesn't mean I have to crack it.

    Julie, are we having a sand issue? I have never seen somebody come off so "hardcore" to new members.
