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.
In what is quite possibly the funniest and most horrible thing I’ve heard all day a 9-year old girl was kicked by an older (16-18) year old boy only to have her PSP taking. It’s literally as easy as taking candy from a baby.
Am I a horrible person for laughing at this story? Probably, but not near as horrible as the boy from Great Hollands, Bracknell who committed the act on Monday.
I'm a big fan of having choice when it comes to my gaming needs. Being able to select a color that suits me it always welcome, however, I think that there comes a time when you've just got too many colors. The DS has been released in more colors than you can find in nature, and the PSP is getting to be the same way.
I love cradles. No, I don't have a thing for babies and the places they sleep, but I hate having to fuss with plugging in a cord to my mobile devices. I'd rather just plop it down into a cradle and be done with it, then when I need it again, I just grab it and go. Naturally if I had a PSP (I know, I really need to pick one up) I'd be excited as hell over this new accessory.
