The hideously pink PSP promotes a PC game

Marketing certain games and the way it is done sometimes blows my mind, for example this painfully pink PSP. That obnoxious image on the front, that's not promoting a PSP game, no, it's promoting a PC game.

Sony PSP phone in works as SE partnership weakens, say analysts

The idea of Sony producing a PSP cellphone is one of those perennial rumors that the company hardly even bothers commenting on now.  However Marketing Week are doing their very best to refuel the speculation, quoting "industry sources" and analysts who suggest the relationship between Sony and Ericsson has become "frosty".

PSP gets v4.00 update

Google is a tool that frankly, if all electronics died, I would wander around aimlessly muttering incoherently about the days of Google. I had no idea how bad I was until I decided to spend a weekend without electronics and practically started twitching when I had no way to prove I was right about some random debate. Luckily PSP fans will no longer be without their Google, as long as they have their trusty PSP.

Crash – Mind Over Mutant coming this fall

Crash Bandicoot is about to make yet another appearance, most of us haven't played it since Crash's days on the PS1. Although some ended it with the racing game (Crash Tag Team Racing), which wasn't exactly exciting. It excelled at being overly mediocre.

Japan gets metallic blue PSP

Sony Japan has announced that there will be a shiny new PSP hitting the shelves in this metallic blue. I was already jealous of Madden fans when they released the Madden bundle with the pretty new blue PSP in the set.

PSP mod allows for use of a controller

For anyone with a PSP that would like the perk of being able to switch to playing with the classic DualShock controller from time to time you're in luck. Acid Mods have found a way to do exactly that.

The XCM Magic Night Glow face plates for the PSP

I have recently snagged myself a PSP and am now faced with the decision as to whether or not to get a cover for it. I was happy to come across these cool glow-in-the-dark ones to add another option to my long list.

Gelaskins branches out into gaming with the DS and PSP

Recently it was announced that Colorware is now customizing PSPs but as much as I love playing on their website I could never afford one. I know that for many that is a common issue, well Gelaskins has a much cheaper alternative.

Mario Kart Wii outsold by erotic PSP game in Japan this week

We all know that Mario Kart Wii has been almost as highly-anticipated as Super Smash Bros. Brawl for the Wii. It managed to sell over 300,000 copies on launch day over in Japan. However, it was bested this week in sales by a pair of bouncy breasts.

Sony HandyCam HDR-TG1 (or TG3 in Europe) – shiny, but does it work?

Things I like about this camera: the up to 1080i recording resolution, the shiny exterior, the fact that it comes with 4GB of storage. Things I don’t like about this camera: the 4GB of storage come on a Memory Stick PRO Duo card and the AVCHD recording codec.

PSP Slim can take a beating

One of the reasons why I love my Nintendo DS so much is that I know that it's going to take a beating. I know this because I've dropped it more times than I can count. I'm a bit clumsy and have a tendency to destroy my less sturdy gadgets, which is why I tend to pick out ones that will hold up over time. Apparently I should add the PSP Slim to that list.

The guys over at BrokenReview decided to see how well the PSP Slim held up under some pretty nasty circumstances. In the end, they realized that Sony's portable console holds up well against most normal situations, and still goes on playing games even after being severely abused. It's no Panasonic Toughbook, but it holds up well enough.

Modder adds analog sticks to PSP

I've always kind of wondered why Sony didn't bother putting analog sticks on the PSP. That would be like not putting rumble in the PS3 controllers. Oh wait. For those of you that own a PSP and have a strong desire to use such controls, it is possible, though it will take some hard work to achieve.
