    Good 60 reasons. Ill admit, when I first saw this thread, i thought there are going to be alot of dumb reasons in hear. But they all seemed fine to me. Accept for reason 32.Can be used as a light in the dark.
    Even though psp does make a pretty nice night light. I don't think any one specifically uses a psp as a light (in the dark) good job though.

    haha nice list. I actually use it as a light every once in a while if I don't want anybody else knowing I'm still awake I will turn it on and point it at the ground so I don't step on anything. Great list.

    You forgot the number 1 reason to own a PSP over anything else:

    1. Compatibility with multiple operating systems / hardware platforms.

    The PSP is fully compatible with Linux, Mac and Windows. Sony could have required a driver (i.e. the Zune driver) to access it, but they didn't and they just left it open to us.

    Now, I love the PSP, but let's touch on a few points which aren't so hot (so they can improve it with PSP2 )

    1. No OGG/Vorbis or FLAC support. OGG and FLAC are major music formats and they have been for quite a few years now, the reason all these music players are leaving out support for them boggles the mind. OGG is also much higher quality than MP3/WMA at the same bitrate. They are also free formats (as in freedom) so adding support for them would have cost Sony exactly nil.

    2. Battery life is not so great (but it IS 'good.') Clocking the PSP at 333mhz is needed to run some things smoothly (SNES/GBA emulators, some PSP games, etc) and it makes battery life even worse.

    3. The stock shell offers little scratch resistance, especially on the screen.

    4. The analog nub is easily lost, and replacements aren't cheap and are of poor quality ($5.99 for a 3-pack of cheap rubber nubs that constantly fall off? WTF?)

    5. Dust seems to have no trouble getting in the screen.

    6. Inbuilt 1gig or 2gig flash with an optional memorystick slot would be better than NEEDING a memorystick. Memorysticks for this thing ain't cheap per gigabyte. You can get an 80gb 3.5" IDE hard drive for the same price as a 2gb memorystick (about $50.)

    7. You can't see the screen well outside due to glare, even if it's on the 4th brightness level. On the other hand I have no trouble seeing the screen on my Zune or cellphone even in direct sunlight and at the lowest brightness setting.

    8. The power/WiFi switches break easily. I've had to replace the WiFi switch once and the power switch twice on mine.

    yea that 61st reason is good. But then he would probly have to come up with 4 (65) or 9 (70) more resons. Cuz 61 is such an odd number. #1 route traveled in pa though.
