Update: After four-five years of sporadic playing on the "PSP 3000", it is now time for an update 170,309th
• There is now quite necessary to perform a so-called modding / soft modding of the unit "PSP 3000"! .This reprogramming (which is actually the case of) should not be made of some obscure game / computer / mobile phone shops that niche on the so-called "Reverse engineering" of various types. "Softmodding" is a time-consuming job, and even though their "standard procedure" -upplägg iofs was a well-functioning total solution for something six months ago, it does not mean that this fung. in dagsläget. and / or to precisely one's own modelllversion / edition. However exact the one of several hundreds of pieces "for the inconvenience", despite all the software / approach methodology they use is acquired in the same FREE website / s that you can visit / use of self (and moreover even get a day / model adapted version that works full!)
No, instead follow a väluppdaterad "PSP Mod Tutorial" self istället.Eller let an acquaintance with the sense of technology and English language, do it for you, with / without compensation (no expertise in computer technology are needed, however, when the descriptions are fully adapted for the so-called "ordinary people" .Tidsåtgång, concentration, and some patience, however, is ALWAYS realities to be reckoned with if the end result is satisfactory). ¤¤¤
Do not you do this, you will remain bound to the very repbenägna UMD discs below, both in games and film.-Ngt download game / film footage to "Old PSP" from the officially "Sony" -Keep, does not exist anymore. And "UMD" -skivorna (in their pathetic little brittle plastic frames) WILL BE scratched! .TRO ME!. It almost seems that the "PSP" drive self-repairing them, after long use. And although the SMB may consider buying new games releases as they are old unusable, so he may one problem: The system is "dead", ie, "Sony" has withdrawn the entire standard, in favor of the successor "PlayStation Vita".
Continuing on the PSP gaming market is (at best) unofficial game editions sold at such someone turisttät plaza in Thailand, China and Vietnam, often alongside various other forms of unofficial third-party equipment. Here at home so handled new as well as used, games for PSP / stale consoles, today the lukruativa industry for so-called "Retro gaming", where it is rarely beneficial to be a customer. On apart from the listed, so it remains only to self-probing beg.marknaden as time / desire ...
In order to play "PSP" game on reasonable terms, necessarily requires modding or hackning.-rest is to fill in with yourself, here on the Internet. ¤¤
I choose to raise the rating considerably, since prolonged use has shown that the "PSP 3000", certainly has its strengths! .- TOO!. ¤¤
¤ The game experience is, at the very best games, level with the PS2 / Xbox Original!. And it is possible after all to play on home television screen, if you buy an expensive Component Cable (el.flyttar to North America / Japan) .With proposed soft modding it goes even decent to store, manage and redirect the / look directly into the unit. movies in a number filformat..SKÄRMEN is fantastic for both film and game, especially if one considers that it is a portable device, and that there are around ten years old TECHNOLOGY dealing om.-Compare eg with screens on competitor "Nintendo DS "! .. (I have the greatly improved" DSi ", but the screens are similar to damn the approved ,, even on it!). Music = Nemas problemas.Och switches the sound to a real stereo, so it BLR First class!.
¤ The built-in stereo sound is excellent to come from such a small device (not as pompous as in "Nintendo DSi" However, with its virtual surround sound effects and all).
¤ The media player is versatile and covers up most mediabehoven.Grejen is that, if you want to use the device and playback capabilities fully, ie for images, movies, and music, "Sony 's original software no further indeed!. Modding is, again, virtually essential.
¤ Buttons dislike I still do, but as you get used to most things, more or less (then a small piece of plastic in the "Analog" button loose, I discovered that it is then easier to use!. This is when the thumb now has a new edge to rely on, as well as to maintain the grip and maneuverability of "Analog" button (or "plate" as the actually consists of).
¤ Games to "Nintendo" s 8-bit console, as well as to "Super Nintendo" is a delight to emulate the "PSP 3000" (again: Modding necessary!).
¤ The device appears to be far more durable than can be expected on a small device, with advanced technology built in, and only a simple plastic chassis.
With these additions, it is still the old review below, quite timely.
No, this was not optimal!. I waited for the right time to acquire a "PSP" .Dels why I waited one, at least somewhat, REALISTIC PRICE! .- On the one hand because the 3000 model would be the most elaborate in general, but especially with a focus on the most advanced display then (May 2011) had been made spelkonsollen.Så: 800: - of elgiganten, but skeppad in the Czech Republic ..? .. .In any case, full of enthusiasm for the world-famous small unit finally come into my possession, opened I so asken.Ok, I knew in advance that the only color design that was available (well, the others were even worse!) was "Vibrant blue", but va'faan! .. (-It would probably have suited a homosexual Danderyd fjortis better than me!). But then what: Headphones that one finds in the absolute lowest price segment, type "Jula" / "Prepare" / "Clas Ohlsson", etc. (.., Attached with a hi-tech product from one of the world's largest and leading electronics manufacturers .. ) When it came to a cable that would combine charging and transfer to / from PC via USB, well, then it turned out that only charge portion fungerade.-a simple standard charger also included, as well as a tiny thumbnail of a carabiner (?? ..) the simple metal.
When it comes to the gameplay, so it soon became clear that neither it was a flawless experience!.
1, the battery time is pitiful BAD! .- Around two hours max! They then it is gambling with the charger in the wall socket that counts!.
2, the control set is mediocre. The so-called substandard "Directs the Cross", which is the principal of the sitting to the left of the screen, one would perhaps have been able to brush aside with the argument: "It is designed ONLY for children's fingers / hands," as explanation for why thumbs entire j - a time slides down to the very nearby called "Analog Control" s little damn - ed "M & M" button! .- But even that is! .After About a half hour playing you also get a sore thumb! .- This is as a direct result of the "Control Cross "made in the ordinary traditional hard plastic! (Thoughts go suddenly to "Atari 2600" from 1977, where the manufacturer extremely carefully worked out a joystick in rubber and soft plastics, designed for all ages!). In addition to the "PSP" is 35 years in that respect, the "Control Cross" cast in one lump, that "Up / down / right / left" -armarna turns out, -under plastchassit-, be on the same unit. To compare with eg a plastic handle / knob to a cabinet door, in a typical standard apartment from 70/80's. (Which, in itself, may cost about 5: - Ikea ..) Also: If I'm with my adult man's thumb get sore after a while "PSP" -spelande, so learn hardly a kid (who are forced to push even harder on buttons to take effect) think that "Ikea control" is someone big shot either!. -When It then comes to the front "shoulder buttons", you have apparently started from a typical original control to the "Playstation 1/2/3" .- wrongly DOCK! .Känselupplevelsen Is completely different (AND WRONG!) On the small and slim "PSP" n, than such a "Playstation 2" -handkontrolls knappuppsättnng. A revision and rethinking iställlet would have been needed for this ändamål.-Or even better: an enabling playing with an external PS2 Controller!.
3, "Sony" is afraid of its brand and the lönsamhetssifror.Att via encryption methods to protect their consoles, I can understand and sympathize med.-But what the f - n, they have to lose by installing so-called emulators of old console games from the "Stone Age", ie "ColecoVision," "Intellivision" electricity. "Atari" on my 'PSP' s memory card ?? .. There is probably no copyright at all to take into account, as this is the technology that most belongs in a museum! .And There still would be somebody who has NGN form of dusty copyright , so learn it hardly interfere with the person I'm playing a bit from time to annan.-talking second generation consoles damn it!. -A In which case it is NOT A CHALLENGE FOR SUIT PEOPLE OF "SONY" S H. K. In Tokyo!.
Despite this, they have put a ridiculously large amount of energy / money to block their CONSOLES from running anything other than their own products!. -A Thoughts to download the updates that they advocate that you should, well, then you can also feel confident that MORE CRAP stuff that affects me / my console, but favors their copyright-paranoia, will be installed on my spelenhet.I glow that "the generous offer free updates" THEN .., or "official firmwares" as it is called in "Sony" language! ...
4, Multimedia = even film. Seeing the film on its "PSP" is done on a non-modded console, usually through a special film standard DVD skivor.Formatet called "UMD" and, believe it or not, it is created by SONY THEMSELVES! .On that way they can profit from an American film, from the planning and commencement of filming (they own blah "Columbia Pictures", etc.), ALL tHE wAY DOWN tO MY ( "Sony") "UMD" disc, tHAT I STOP MY ( " Sony ")" PSP "! .- Talk about" vinstoptimerimg! ". Now it is so that competing studios and distributors have given the cold shoulder to "UMD" format, and therefore there is not much roll to come in from the non- "Sony" -owned studios / aktörer.Faktum is that movies from " Sony "itself, not directly served as rods in backen.Om you can not be fluent in English and want to" feel pampered "with Swedish lyrics, well, then, you deduct all editions nOT INTENDED fOR AREAS wHERE OUR LITTLE SWEDISH MARKET INCLUDED! .-A under the current circumstances it has not, of course Swedish trade, "CDON", "Ginza", etc., nor put his soul on providing "UMD" movies instantly! .- on as this were not enough, then "Sony" itself now formally put FORMAT fOR! .- Again, the most hope for in filmväg, with a omoddad console, the next to (the Swedish subtitled movies) used nonexistent market for UMD releases. ! ..- BUT SOFTMODDING for the cat, so you will not have this problem, as well as others!.
5, A separate "point five" for the above discs, which, in fact, also form the backbone for like all the games "PSP" is the base for!. (Officell game download = history)
It can justifiably be said that it is now widely known that the physical quality of the "Sony" -specific discs, are outrageously BAD! .- The discs have 0% of the so-called "Scratch Proof," which means that only a small j - a scratch, can completely destroy a whole film / full-price game for 250 bucks! .Skivorna Be installed in a kind of frame, before you put in the in-spelaren. This frame NGT is probably the most embarrassing (comic?) sold professionally for the last 20 years! .. (Think materially "Parts of a kit-plastic model of a" "Spitfire" "in scale 1:72! ..). it can online buy "empty frames" cheap to "PSP" / "UMD" in 50- or 100-PACK!. "Wear-a-bout-principle" that is!.
6, it is claimed far and wide from the 'Sony' s hold that it is indeed very easy on the practical connection for its "PSP" to the TV / plattskärmen.Det is not! .- With my "3000" model teaches it, reportedly, be possible to do this, but not with all "PSP" versions! .- Here is what you as a consumer who is expected to sit at the kitchen table on google and rooting, before going to the store!. Moreover, it is very strange with this with the Swedish / western television system, "pal" in relation to the North American "NTSC" .- I have tried with a standard cable composite-type, but without (sense) resultat.-Maybe have gone better with the cable type Component (more expensive), but who f - n have the energy to keep up with this stuff hassle? .In addition, it is not certain that a cable that supports screenings, AUTOMATIC also supports the more advanced image transfer is required to play games! ... Assuming then that it is also a cable for the right TV system..å of the right standard ... 'then of course it is right "PSP" model, as I said then ....''Suck! ''
Since the pissiga battery life and still not very effective in portable gaming, -and without the soft mud, no, no movie watching Heller, so why not buy a used copy of the technically closely related "Playstation 2"?. It works (hopefully) at least! .On The costs are guaranteed not the shirt, plus the usual "Bonn' DVDs" accepted! .- Although usable only home on the couch then, but where there is also the (? ..) Access beverage, stereo, Blu-ray, giant screen, and perhaps even a girlfriend / boyfriend to hold in your hand?! ..
But many options finns.Tex this, and many more:
- And maybe it is a bit questionable with the whim hårdkrypterad machine "PSP 3000", for so much money?. But so, it is up to each one to decide. -Even The more familiar brands and models can of course also available to brilliant prices, though the block! (Yes, they beg. Certainly, but often completely o.k. anyway!).
The successor to this, "PlayStation Vita", is a cannonball into the gaming unit!. However, even more expensive, and even more hårdkrypterad than this "PSP". The reasons are why many compare and consider purchasing options carefully before making decisions! ..
