And we thought chivalry was
dead: Joseph Szadkowski of The Washington Times last week wrote a veritable love letter to the PSP wherein he refreshes
our memory of why we first picked up our PSPs: top-tier games and video playback. The release of well-reviewed titles
like Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror, Daxter
, and Exit
have no doubt boosted all our confidence in
Sony’s sleek handheld, although recent news of the impending death of movies on UMD may have dampened our spirits
just a tad.
A fair bit of warning: the article reads a bit like a promotional piece--despite its complaints
of “flip-flopping aspect ratios”--so we’d have to take the serenade with a smidgen of rudimentary
caution. However, we like the fact that 2006 is shaping up to be a great year for the PSP. Considering many of us were
close to throwing in the towel from a debut year of minor disappointments, it’s nice to finally get some payback.
