VIDEO GAME SYSTEMS

Sony PSP

The hottest game system this year isn't a traditional console game, it's a handheld unit—Sony's first. The PSP is essentially the portable version of the popular Sony PlayStation 2; in fact, the name “PSP” stands for “PlayStation Portable.”


Size-wise, the PSP is everything you want it to be. It's slim enough (less than an inch deep) to fit into a shirt pocket, and light enough (a little over a half pound) not to make your pocket sag. Most of the front of the unit is taken up by the big 4.3'' diagonal 16:9 ratio screen, with four-button thumb controllers on either side for game play. Additional memory can be had by using Sony's Memory Stick Duo-format flash drives. There's also a WiFi connection, for multi-player gaming.
