Marketed as a Playstation 2 in your pocket, the PSP has evolved into a device with its own identity that has a strong connection to the PS3, and a diverse offering of titles. While not providing the same graphic fidelity of the PS2, the PSP still emphasizes graphics and a rich audio/visual experience compared to the Nintendo DS. In summer of 2007 Sony released the PSP Slim that is lighter, slimmer and features a TV-out port that lets you connect your PSP to the television directly.

Equipped with a wireless LAN feature, PSP enables users to connect to the Internet through access points, making it possible for users to download game characters and content and also to play games on-line with families, friends and on-line community members. For a more intimate gaming experience, a maximum of 16 PSP systems can be connected wirelessly through the ad-hoc mode allowing family and friends to create an instant yet powerful local on-line entertainment community.

PSP features an integrated high output lithium-ion battery that provides play time of between 4 and 6 hours for game titles and continuous 4 to 5 hours for video viewing.

With PSP, the world of PlayStation, people's most favourite platform, is further enhanced. A 4.3 inch wide 16:9 high resolution LCD screen, the largest in a handheld gaming device, creates a personal environment in which to enjoy games, music and video anytime, anywhere, with a dynamism that has never been possible before.
