The snazziest portable gaming console has been on a diet, but is it worth buying all over again?

Definitely an improvement over the original PSP, but not so significant as to be worth throwing out the old one for

Expert review by:

Sony PSP Slim & Lite Preview

 

Preview: It's lost a third of its body weight, boosted its battery life and has faster load times. But can the PSP mark II hunt down that pesky DS Lite?

Smaller and lighter. Increased battery life. Video out. Better loading times

No internal flash memory. New colours not coming to UK

Sony PSP Slim & Lite

 

This second generation PSP may have slimmed down, but it has beefed up on features and quality, and offers excellent value for money

Excellent video quality ; good value for money ; and think about the games

No on-board memory ; still pretty large ; UMD is dead

The Sony PSP has been around for a while now. Is it still likely to be top of the Christmas list this year? Well - it's top of mine at least.

Sony PSP

 

The 'Walkman of the 21st century' is here. But is it any good for gaming?

With a dodgy analogue control option and must-do-better battery life balanced by a beautiful screen, the PSP will not disappoint as a gaming platform – and it will only improve with age

Expert review by:

Sony PSP (Slim & Lite)

 

Still the best portable gaming device on the market ; at least when it comes to raw graphical power

Improvements are largely superfluous, majority of faults remain unchecked

While far from revolutionary, the Slim and Light does add some minor improvements to an already impressive machine. Shame about the pre-existing faults, though.

Product Specifications

Matt Groening's parody of Middle America has become the inspiration behind a PSP Limited Edition bundle. With the addition of a limited edition bundle, inspired by the blockbuster Simpsons movie, together with the new video-out port, which gives consumers the option to enjoy PSP content on the big screen, Sony is confident that this now brings a whole new dimension to the PSP entertainment experience. Featuring a hilarious storyline and script lovingly crafted by the TV show's Emmy Award-winning writers, EA's The Simpsons Game is everything you would expect from America's first family, and more. As Homer, Marge, Bart, and Lisa you will use exciting, strange new powers to save Springfield from the rising chaos. Journeying through their iconic slice of Americana and even more bizarre worlds, you will face an array of comic and deadly villains, while fighting your way through parodies of many popular games. The new PSP model is significantly lighter and slimmer than the original but still maintains the PSP system's signature 4.3 inch LCD screen. Dubbed Slim & Lite, the new model includes additional features such as a TV-out socket for viewing games, pictures and videos on a big screen television, and the ability to recharge the system via a USB cable connected to either a PLAYSTATION 3 or PC.
