These babies are quite rare these days, with Sony putting most of its faith in the divisive PSPGo or concentrating on the widely rumoured PSP 2. The PSP-2000 is not the ultimate UMD media leviathan, that would be the 3000 series with the shinier screen, but it comes pretty damn close and is still not quite the brick that the original machine was.
WHSmith are selling the nifty little handheld for just under £100 at the moment, which is pretty damn good as all nearly all of the competition is either out of stock, only selling the PSPGO or second hand versions or have a price point of £20-30 more. If you fancy getting in on some PSP action, and have noticed that you can buy UMDs for dirt cheap at the moment, then this might just be the deal for you.
I love my PSP, I never go travelling without it. Combining impressive PS2 power with relative portability and a swathe of media possibilities, it's my jumbo jet/train/bus/Tube accessory of choice. It's also great for playing on the loo and has something that even the Xbox 360 doesn't have: free wireless connectivity and a web browser.
This version can boast being 19% thinner and 33% lighter than the original PSP (reduced from 23 mm to 18.6 mm and from 280 grams to 189 grams). Just try not to drop it, as they've removed the shock absorbent metal chassis to make for a less hefty model.
I'd seriously advise that you buy this over the PSPGo. for now, anyway.
