Obsessed with PSP? PSP Fanboy's hiring!


PSPFanboy is looking for a few good bloggers! Does Sony's sleek, svelte, sexy system make you want to write and tell the whole world about it? Does the mere thought of camera peripherals, GPS attachments, and homebrew minutiae make you weak in the knees? If so, you might have what it takes to join the PSPFanboy crew.

Still with us? Keep reading then...

  • Demonstrated passion for games
  • Solid writing ability

  • Have the software and knowledge to create and manipulate photos and screenshots
  • Know (basic) blogger’s HTML
  • Are eligible to work, wherever you’re writing from

Here’s how to apply. Send joystiq.applications@gmail.com an email including:
