I'm thinking of getting a PSP since I have some gift cards to kill. What memory should I get with it?

I think if you're lucky you can get an 8 giger for about 50-60 bux

4gb is actually a decent amount to get... you'll load it up with movies and music and not much else.

Well that 8GB one I linked to has great speed according to the reviews. This is the other one:

Actually the 8GB at Amazon is a good price.

If you aren't going to put custom firmware on it you probably could get by with a 4GB. I have two 4GB where one is used for games and the other for movies.

I'd suggest an 8 GB. You'll be surprised how quickly you can fill it up. Especially if you have some homebrew apps.

They're going for about $43 on ebay.

Don't buy memory sticks on eBay. Most of them are fakes and will cause incompatibility issues.

"Don't buy memory sticks on eBay. Most of them are fakes and will cause incompatibility issues."

X 2

I got a flimsily made one on eBay. I had to tape it together after 4 months or so because the casing was coming apart. It finally died after a year.

I've now got one of those 8 gb sticks. I can notice the faster access and download times.

Can anyone recommend some good games? I will be picking up Secret Agent Clank for my wife. I like shooters but I don't see myself playing them on the PSP since there's no second analog stick.

From what I read Secret Agent Clank wasn't very good, you might want to get the Ratchet and Clank PSP game instead.

To answer your question all you need to get started is God of War.

Either of the Syphon Filter games are a must.

Beyond that, what other genres do you like?

Syphon Filters are good.
God Of War
Liberty City Stories was cool.
LocoRoco
Daxter (one of the best titles, still)
Lumines

There's a lot of good software available for the PSP.

So far I only picked up Ratchet & Clank Size Matters. I'll read reviews of Madden when that comes out.

What's a good case?

Either Wipeout game. Disgaea if you are into strategy RPGs. Also, the launch title Ridge Racer is great arcadey fun and can be picked up for super-cheap.

Space Invaders Extreme. Seriously... a whole bunch of awesome in that game.


Sub-1080p/60fps is not next-gen.

It's nice and compact, protects well, has slots for memory cards and UMDs, and is only $15.

Same, I have many cases for the PSP.

I kept my soft case that came with the Phat PSP because the slim did not come with one. I have the case that is featured in the pic. I also have a hard see through case. I also have a nice grip case, kind of like a condom for the PSP slim that gives you access to all the right areas (the sounds so wrong).

I have the same case that is pictured. It works great. Be carefully if you buy a hard case because there is still a lot of stock out there that is for the Phat PSP. The headphone jacks are in different spots and it just won't fit right. They also are only called PSP Case since there weren't two different ones when they were manufactured.
