PSP Slim

The PSP Slim & Lite has landed. About to chuck out your original and rush to the shops? Whoa there, fella. Let us give you the lowdown. We?re looking at a revamp, rather than the PSP reborn.
Click to learn more...

OK, it?s 5mm thinner and 3mm shorter than the original, with a similar build, but it?s still a touch too big to fit in your pocket. The 4.3-inch screen is still fantastic, but that?s because it?s the same 4.3-inch screen from the original.

Body tweaks are akin to a short back and sides rather than a full Brazilian. The infrared port?s gone ? there?s a switch on the top to activate Wi-Fi ? and the UMD door now flaps open. Game commands stay the same, with the same L and R buttons, D-pad and four control keys.

So what of the TV-out socket? It?s cool to be able to hook up the PSP to a TV or monitor and play games or browse the web. The component AV cable connects via the headphone socket, but one isn?t supplied, so you have to buy one.

As with the original PSP, you can remotely access files stored at home on your PS3, and as a bonus you can now charge it via USB. Battery life clocks in at a solid 4-6 hours depending on useage.

The Slim & Lite isn?t the enormous leap across the tech ravine we?d hoped for, more of a tip-toe through a small puddle. That said, everything we loved about the PSP is still here ? it?s a great console, it?s got intuitive controls and cracking games. Still a winner? Yes. Ground-breaking? Well, not really.

If you want to get a feel for it yourself, then point your mouse down below for our exclusive first video.

Looks great, definitely picking one up!

what did i say about a new PSP?? i knew it was coming, what was the infared port for anyways?? cuz i cant figure out what to do with it, is it for Ad-Hoc? but i wanna see a prototype or something about everything new

MattZani 13-07-2007 02:44 PM

It was for planned uses, but never happened.

i knew this was coming all along, but you said PSP2.

aceshigh113 13-07-2007 10:08 PM

no, i said psp slim, well i think

MattZani 14-07-2007 06:42 AM

no you didn't...

aceshigh113 14-07-2007 09:10 PM

okay, i wont argue

I think I'm gonna stick with the Ds lite, awesome games, way more battery life, and it fits in my pocket. Sham you have to buy the video cable separately.

MattZani 15-07-2007 06:03 AM

i hate the DS, the games are rubbish, the hacking is limited, mods limited to LEDs....

Mr. 33 30-09-2007 03:11 AM

since i have both i like to go between the two

Kash-Jnr 03-01-2008 10:32 PM

The PSP is alot better in my opinion but to be honest the devolpers havent got much to play with unlike the DS...

Come on look at the idea of two screens and touch navigated...

They should have incorporated some kind of motion detector in the new PSP?

MattZani 04-01-2008 07:53 AM

Well, i got my slim, now to hack it open....

Kash-Jnr 04-01-2008 04:53 PM

I got mine just before christmas . .. . .. .

am new to the hacking scene tbh

explain what i can actually do with it

MattZani 05-01-2008 07:44 AM

Well, Custom Firmware and stuff, but i mean open it up, im gonna make it a HL2 PSP.

Sites down at the moment, but once its back up, they'll cater all your needs

aceshigh113 07-01-2008 06:29 PM

ya know what sony should do???

they should make a firmware update for both the ps3 and psp and make it so that the psp can be played on the TV through the ps3 via USB.

it would be pretty rad

lloyd 07-01-2008 11:17 PM

Is that a joke?

MattZani 08-01-2008 11:32 AM

Is what a joke?

Me Tearing my PSP Apart? Nope, it isnt.

aceshigh113 08-01-2008 10:15 PM

or what i said the joke??

its a serious thing. for the people that dont want to go out and spend an extra $200 on a new slim PSP and video cable

MattZani 09-01-2008 04:35 PM

It could work, but USB Would limit it.

But to play the PSP on a tv? I'm not sure that would very cool. You're sending a low-def image to a hi-def tv, and i'm sure playing a PSP game on a tv would be weird.

MattZani 11-01-2008 02:12 PM

The Slim already does it, but with a cable, no PS3 involved.
