Well, well and hell!?
I took out my Eee and chug in my brother-in-law brand new PSP slim lite or PSP-2000 via the USB port. At the same time plugging in my 80Gb portable HDD that I just bought the other day.
Kids, don't do this at home. Since, I'm at a staircase 'somewhere' without any power point, my Eee almost ran out of juice sucked out by the PSP and portable HDD.
Later, even when my Eee battery was at 20% I manage to plug in my Motorola phone and transfer some photos to the PSP.
I was at my wits end. No power supply in sight. But, with a whole lot of determination, and the thoughts of my bro-in-law enjoying, watching videos on his brand new PSP, I manage to push myself and some heavy videos of Jay-Z vs Linking Park to the PSP. Even manage to put in 500++ mb worth of songs to it. It was pretty ugly, but against all odds. Yes, I did it!
Yesterday, my bro-in-law bought a PSP for his kids. He's thinking of buying another one for his son. He knows, they each one for their own self. You know how kids are. I'm thinking of getting one myself. Although, I already have the Eee Pc and can do whatever the PSP can do on it. But, I like to dabble with all this tech toys. It's a pretty cool gadget.
Give me one of this thing and you'll see me push it to the max. Doing my research surfing the net and bombard it with stuff that only geeks barricading themselves at their mom's basement will know. No, I'm not one of them. I don't even have a basement?
Anyway, for the PSP, the most important thing of all is that they really do have some great games and it's portable. Besides playing games on the PSP, you can watch movies, listen to your favorite music, browse through photos and surf on the internet via wifi!
One of the thing that I don't like is that you'll have to buy sony memory stick pro to install all that. My bro-in-law bought the PSP with 4gb card including some games on it. So, for the moment he and his kids can enjoy some of the games and music on it. But, if they want more, they'll have to buy more memory.
Why can't Sony just produce a Hard disk base PSP?
Like my Ipod, I have 80gb of memory and I can install all the music I want without really worrying about space. Even though the Eee Pc only have 4gb of SSD space but, I now have an 80gb portable drive. So, I don't really have to worry about not having enough space to install practically anything I want on it too.
Imagine an 80Gb, 120Gb, 160Gb, 180Gb, 250Gb or 350Gb PSP!?
Wouldn't that be FANTASTIC?
I don't think providing an 80 or 500Gb PSP is anything but impossible. With the technological advances we have in memory and storage, it ain't that hard. Okay, it might cost you but hey, there's millions of gamers out there waiting for this kind of product. I'm pretty sure, the price will go down.
Dump the UMD and design a cool looking PSP with a minimum of 80Gb memory and I can bet you Sony PSP would control the portable gaming world!
Think about that Sony!!
I just hope they do it fast or maybe, Microsoft and Apple eye-ing that market themselves?
Okay, I forgot about Nintendo DS, but, are they thinking the same thing too?
For now, personally, I like the PSP better. I don't know maybe, because, I haven't tried the game on a DS yet. But, in this case, the game rules. And, I like the PSP form factor better. Maybe, because, I used to own a PSX, so I'm a little bias.
Microsoft Xbox is pretty cool too. So far, I like it. If Microsoft thinking of creating a portable game player that plays Halo, I think, it'll sells like crazy!
Okay, okay. Maybe, I'm just dreaming but who knows, maybe Bill Gates and for that matter Steve Jobs reading my blog today?
Right. That's all I've got to say today. Been kind of hectic and busy this week. Maybe, it's the new year so everything seems chaotic. But, I'm cool. Everything, going as plan. So, 'till then.
P.S. I wrote and post this using my Eee pc. I love this little baby!
