I have to take care of someone who is constantly in and out of the doctors office, so my PSP is a frikin life saver.

I'll admit that few portable games will take priority over my main console, but games like GOW:CoO, FF7:CC, and Patapon are just too good to put down when you get home.

Piracy is a pain for portable game devs. Hopefully the PSP2 & the next Nintendo handheld find a way to stop it, or at least make it a little difficult. It is seriously way to easy to mod the PSP. I modded my PSP in about 30 minutes. If we had to open up the PSP and do a hardware mod and add a new chip just to run some CFW a lot fewer people would be doing it. Right now it is just way too easy.


This is the future of handheld gaming.
