Criteria Comments Rating
  • Game library there's only a limited selection of dedicated PSP titles out there, BUT if you're running custom firmware you can play most any PSX game! great!
  • Graphics fairly impressive for a handheld system good
  • Battery life No comments so-so
  • Portability (size / weight) a bit large for a handheld, but can be persuaded to fit in pockets so-so
  • Durability screen protectors are a must and the tough cases to surround the entire device are handy so-so
Detailed review
The PSP-2000 with factory firmware isn't terribly impressive, but flashing custom firmware allows you to install a plethora of homebrew and also run PSX games! Check out devkitpro for PSP (and other system) development toolchains
