The PSP has not been in the spotlight as it was once was, however there are still many games that make this system successful. The PSP is powerful because you can use it as a DVD player, this case a UMD Player, an MP3 Player and a small computer to surf the net. Here are some suggestions I have for you to give as gifts.
Gift Idea #6: PSP Go
With its resign appearance and new slide capability it is sure to make the PSP come back. This new system has decreased the screen size from its original 4.3″ to 3.8″. This may be disappointing to many who have played with the original PSP, but the reason for this reduction is because they wanted to make it pocket size. The new PSP Go loses its use of the UMDs so that it is more energy efficient. This means that every game you will own for it will downloadable. Now that the PSP Go relies on downloadable content Sony has increased its memory to 16GB Flash, so you can easily store content within the PSP Go. You can also increase its size by adding a memory stick pro duo. I recommend this gift idea if you will be giving it to someone who has never owned a PSP before, as they cannot play there old UMDs on it.
