Can't live without PSP on overnight flights! I can buy games, read novels & comic books and even watch tv shows on this tiny machine. I own a lavender purple PSP slim, which was sold in Asia. I can play both Japanese and North American version games.
When I found out that Sony had released the new Slim & Lite PSPs in Japan in new pastel colors I couldn't resist and picked up a blue one. The colors are pastel-y but by no means boring. They're quite classy and have a sort of glittery/shimmery and glossy finish. There's quite a noticeable difference in the weight, and it feels nice in your hands. I have a feeling Sony put out these colors to appeal to the female population but the colors are nice enough that they wouldn't seem weird in a boy's hands. The other new and improved feature of these PSP-2000s is that you can hook them up to a TV, and even watch TV on them. The only complaint I had is that it didn't come with headphones. Though, I guess if I think about it, no other handheld system comes with headphones, does it?
Great device to watch movies on trips or even at home. Also plays games of course.
