well.. depends on what you want to do with it ofcourse..

It normally comes with a Sony 32MB memorycard for savegames and such, but if you want to put to MP3's on it or watch movies on it, it's better to buy a bigger memorystick for it.. 1G, 2G, or even 4G is available but it depends on your needs and wants.

The 32MB is sufficient for savegames though.

Getting a screenprotector might also be advisable since the screen scratches really easy. Getting a good hardcase for it might also be smart, but the PSP does come with a soft pouch to put it in.

As for helping you with gaming.. there is nothing you can buy actually
Just play a lot and get better

I don't know wich combined pack you are thinking about buying, but a standard PSP Valuepack has these items



The PSP
A batterypack
A powersupply to charge the PSP or play while it is charging
Headphones + remote
32MB memorystick
A wriststrap
A soft pouch

Most or all combined ( game + PSP) value packs have these items in them too ( read the box or ask the store)

Just like what KNETTER2000 stated it really depends on what you're planning to do with yours (memory card wise). They do have the sony 8gb (too expensive over $140) memory card but alot of people recommend Sandisk 4gb (cost around $60). But if you're just planning to use it as a saved storage just get a 1gb (around $20).

As for casing, I'd recommend logitech hard casing, it's good and reliable (around $10-20). And you could stylize it with images (just make sure you get the free template for it).

logitech style

Just to let you know psp2 is coming later this year (supposedly). I would recommend holding out until then.

* The screen is gorgeous
* The loads are faster
* Improved buttons
* Internal flash — 8GB
* Possible touch-screen
* Possible built-in camera
* Uses UMD

psp2

The PSP2 is still nothing more than a rumor from what I have seen and read.. I have seen no official statement yet it's coming or is even being made..
I'm not saying it's not possible that it;s coming..I've just not read anything official about it..

For a hard casing I have ordered this one for both my psp's: http://shop.brando.com.hk/bwmetalcase_details.php?i=41
It's very much tougher than the logitech one

and as for a screenprotector I have these: http://videogame.brando.com.hk/prod_...006&cat_id=005

the protectors are actually quite fiddly to put on without dust under them.. but it really is worth it.

I don't think I can give you any helpfull tips without them being biased through my own game preference..

I liked Tekken Dark resurrection very much.( tekken fan :P)
LocoRoco simply rocks.
I liked Killzone a lot.
I'm just done with Splinter Cell Essentials
I Liked Chili Con Carnage
I liked Ghost in The Shell Stand Alone Complex

I played Lumines, Lemmings, Mercury + Mercury Meltdown,Tokobot, Ghostrider and many many more. They were nice but not all that interesting imho.

but it all depends on your preference..

Sony have never made an official announcement on anything until the last moment. If they were to make an announcement now, how can they sell their psp if everyone that wants one will be waiting for psp2.

That's actually a nice casing except it has no individual style.

Any screen protector will do, they are pretty much all alike. But they are a Bi+ch to put on without getting dust between the screen and protector. I myself uses Hori. Recommendation use a fan when putting on the screen protector.

DJ Max Portable... you can't go wrong with that. Trust me. Endless hours of music/animation/button smashing. DJMP2 is out but I still like 1 better. I had it for almost a year already and I'm still playing it on my commute. It's one of the fastest selling game on playasia.

Rumors are just that.. I'm not going to hold off buying anything based on mere rumors.. especially rumors that have been there about 6 months after the PSP came out and those same rumors said it would be there or in any case a prototype at the end of 2006. where is the prototype? even the pics out there are concept art made by non officials.

I'd choose quality and protection over nice skins anyday

I applied them in the bathroom with a steaming hot shower on so the steam and dampness took up all dust

worked for me :P

True, very true but I've always considered KOTAKU to be a reliable source. There was a time when Sony themselves denied a fact that was posted on KOTAKU only to later announce that it was true. This time Sony isn't even denying the fact but instead keeping quiet.

Well it depends on how careless the individuals are. It's kind of odd that I only use my shell when I put it away at home, but when I travel with it all I've used was the screen protector and yet I have never dropped it once nor had the need to use a shell.

Weirdo...jk

Hmm... wouldn't there be little of speckles of water from the steam on it.

Ah well whatever it is going to be, we'll see how it unfolds.. there's bound to be a successor to the PSP along the way, I'm just not going to go on rumorsm however trustworhty they are said to be, that's all

It depends on that yes.. but it;s not always you who isn't carefull
I have owned the logitech one but it broke after heavy stuff fell on it ( a coworker knocked over a computercase at the service desk right on top of my precious PSP) and it still cracked my screen under it.. after I replaced the screen I bought that airplane grade aluminium casing from Brando. I've found that it can withstand trays of canned drinks being trown on it without it buckling or damaging the screen (my annoying sister put it in the trunk of the car right before we did some wholesale shopping... ) I don't think an added sticker reinforces the logitech like that

But I think in many cases the logitech case is sufficient. I just prefer an undustrial grade safetycase

Nope, there was and is nothing under it. it works like a charm
and yes.. I am somewhat weird, but my weirdness payed off at that time :P

PSP2 won't happen,
from those rumour the only thing i see happening
is an updated and redesigned PSP, just like the slim PS2, PSone,
GBA SP or NDS lite.
Added flash memory or faster UMD drive doesn't make it a PSP2.
Changing the chip and adding futher instructions onto it,
that would be a psp2.

Read this artcle, posted one day after the other one from above

BTW isn't the logitech case made from polycarbonate ?

We know it's an update and redesign, that's why it's called psp2 (you know the 2 for the second version of the psp).

Hell I don't know why they called it that but it seems everyone is calling it PSP2. Just going with the flow. No need to rain on their parade.

Yes it's polycarbonate.

Hey send it my way if you don't want it. I can never have enough. (kayos is a greedy bastard)

When you state a fact, you're suppose to provide a source so we can judge it for ourselves. But I do remember Sony denying it a long while back but that was like in mid 2006... technology and decisions changes over time. Especially if we're talking about Sony.
