Detailed review
I think I used my PSP religiously for about 3 months, and on two cross country plane rides right after I got it, but after that, it's fallen into disregard, disuse, and disrepair.

Even patched with homebrew firmware, the thing still fails to really engage me. There just aren't enough killer apps for the platform, nor enough developer support to do anything that's being done on all the other major blockbuster platforms that it's competing with.

What's sad is that if you think about it, the PSP was *almost* like the iPod Touch, and even beat it by a few years. It's kind of sad to see how much Sony has missed the industry's trend with this device.
