Nice that, good price too. My recent PSP-1000 purchase seems to be on par with your deal. I really need to get a Photofast thingy though, or a nice big memory stick pro at cost - 2GB is usable but I could do with some actual PSP games on it instead of Tekken 3 and emulators. :lol:

I got the PSP I chose as it's timeless and black is Sony for me.

That case looks very similar to the Sony case I use with my PSP too.. Spooky. :wink:

Good thing about the 2000 series and onwards is that they have double the RAM of the PSP-1000 so emulation has more potential. Probably the best overall.. lol

Yeah, I like the feel of the 1000 but I don't like the stiff D-pad compared to 2000 onwards. Also the newer PSP's from 3000 onwards aren't compatible with the full range of popsloader, and PS1 is what it's all about. I only bought 2 PSP's so I don't have to be super careful with one when I'm using it outside. Emulation on PSP is so good though, I've noticed the screen on them vary an awful lot too, my old PSP 2003 had quite a lot of motion blur but my new one has hardly any at all and the screen looks crisper too. I have thought maybe someone put a new screen in but I'm not sure if you can get higher quality screens or not.

Black PSP's are nice though, I did want a black one to match my 3DS and 360 but not to worry. :)

Just picked up Resi Evil 4 on the Wii, and Alan Wake on 360. Haven't cranked up Wake yet but had a go on Resi last night. I'm liking it very much more than 5 at the moment, although it's gonna take me a while to get used to the pointy+nunchuk controls. I seem to be panicking and looking up at the sky when i should be blasting zombies in the head :lol: Practice needed I suppose! Looking forward to playing Alan Wake at last, I've heard some good things about it. Might help to counter my disappointment with Shadows of the Damned.

Last night I bought Warhammer 4000 Kill Team on 360 XBLA after playing the demo and falling in love with it. Only 800 points too which is nice to see. I was going to get Ms Splosion Man but there's something about Twisted Pixel games that really get on my tits, think it might be the character design or something as Ms Splosion man is probably the most annoying videogame character I've ever witnessed. I did enjoy the original game but haven't completed it (it was tough) and it was less annoying too.

Ooh! Is Kill Team out now? Ain't been on XBL for a while. Love 40k and twin stick shooters, so I'll check it out if you reckon it's a good 'un 8)

Settings --> Voice Volume --> 0%. Problem solved.

Jeez, why do people always complain about the most trivial things?

Because they could have a non annoying voice. Dur.

You're completely missing the point. C=Style suggested that he wasn't going to buy the game solely because of something which can be turned off.

Also, "annoying" is subjective.

Man you just can't win on these forums. Who said anything about the voice anyway? Turning the volume down woudln't solve the problem as the whole thing is annoying to me. Anyway, that's not the only reason why I didn't buy it, it's because I picked up Warhammer 4000 instead and I still haven't completed the original Splosion Man. Is that ok? :o

Picked up a spare halo themed 20gb hard disk for my Jap 360, I've filled my current one up with installed shmups. I want to run a few more games from a hard drive. It was only £4.50!!
