Since last lecture is about gaming, i would like to tlak about Sony PSP. The official realease date of Sony PSP in New Zealand is the 1st of Sepetember, i think there are lots of people want to buy it, so i here to give everyone an overview of Sony PSP.

With eye-popping graphics, dazzling widescreen LCD, wireless connectivity and the ability to play games, music and movies when and where you want, the PSP gives you the freedom to enjoy entertainment on your terms.

As i got one from overseas for few month, i would like to tell you people that it is fantastic. It has too many functions, such as play UMD games, mp3 player,photo viewer, website surfing, watching movie. All you need is all in PSP.

Here are some specification about PSP which i got from Sony website:

thats all great but its nothing more than a Sony gimmick. short battery life, and incompatibility with any other sony PS product. you even have to buy games and DVDs on the special PSP disk if im not mistaken. but its cool because you can play people in your general vicinity, like on the bus without wires
