Santa was very kind this year. I am not normally into gadgets - few actually add value and most are out of date before they hit the shelves. Generally, I think gadgets are fun to read about, but a waste of money. Also, I am not really a gamer. That said, the PSP still won me over.

First off it has a system spec that is similar to my first PC. I am well aware of technology's ability to progress and shrink over time, but it never fails to impress me. Previously, I had a Game Boy Advance, so this is a real technology leap in terms of portable gaming.

Second, the games look goood. I bought Prince of Persia (rocks) and Rengoku (sucks - so far). Prince of Persia looks fantastic and plays really well. It reminds me a lot of Tomb Raider 2 for the Play Station.

Anyway, this is a really fantastic device. I expect to see Ipod like saturation in the future. Every gamer is going to end up with one of these and they are going to be big for Sony. Good news since this is a market (portable gaming) which MSFT has not bothered with. ...and it really sucks to be Nintendo right now.
