After the news of the PSP 3000 came out of Leipzig, I was literally jumping. I was so close to breaking down and buying the PSP 2000, and then Sony finally told me why I waited it out. While not a significant overhaul of the PSP, the new screen looks absolutely amazing to me, becuase the original had such glare problems that I would end up cranking the backlight all the way, which would drain my battery in just a few hours. Look at that contrast, its pretty amazing, and extremely useful for someone like me who uses my psp frequently either outside or in a vehicle. The built-in mic is kinda not important for me since I already own a PSP headset, but I might make use of the built in mic since you dont have to plug in the PSP remote to use it.
Also congrats to Sony for making a couple of great bundles for this thing. They are so good I can't decide which to by.
Rachet and Clank Bundle- $199.99 includes Silver PSP, Rachet and Clank: Size Matters, a 1 gig memory stick, and a download voucher for Echochrome.
Core Pack- $199.99 includes a Piano Black PSP, a 4 gig memory stick, and a download voucher for the PSP version of Everyday Shooter.
Right now I'm leaning toward the Core bundle, since I could really use the 4 gig memory stick, and I wasn't a huge fan of what Sony called the Icy Silver PSP. I don't know if thats the same color since they are just called the color included with the Rachet Bundle a silver PSP. Also on the downloadable game front, I am legitmately interested in playing Echochrome, after playing the demo and being somewhat interested in it. Echochrome also seems like it just has alot more meat to it than Everyday Shooter, and from what I've heard about Everyday Shooter, its a dual joystick shooter, and those don't usually work well on the PSP for obvious reasons.
So what about you guys? Anyone else going to be picking up one of these? Which bundle will you be getting? I am probaly going to be picking up Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness with this, and I might get God of War as well. I really want to play Patapon again. My PSP broke like a few days after I bought that game, and I was so mad, and that game was so awesome!
In other news, Tropical Storm Fay has passed about halfway over me, and the tailend, which is the worst half will be passing tonight. It hasn't done any significant damage at all, and the rain has been alot lighter than what was predicted, but that will probaly change. I got to mow my lawn in a tropical storm today, and that something I've never done before! Well I guess that wasn't that interesting, but whatever.
Thanks for reading,
