PSP 3000?

6 replies 129 views Edited Dec 4, 2011

So I just bought a PS3 and I'm enjoying it as a media player. I have been a regular Xbox 360 gamer for about a year now. I enjoy both consoles and now I want to buy a PSP. Is it worth buying a PSP now when I know the Vita will be out in a few months? All I want to do on a PSP is watch movies on netflix, umd perhaps if they still make em. I'm not into gaming tho. If I were, the only game I would play would be FIFA.

Well, if watching movies is what you want on a portable console then just go with the PS Vita.

It has much more resolution than the psp which is  960×544 compared to psp's  480x272.

You can't watch Netflix on the PSP.  I'm not sure if UMD movies are still being made, but you could probably pick up some old/used ones.  You can also just play downloaded movies, from the PSN Store or elsewhere, from a memory stick.  If you need Netflix, you'd want a Vita.  Otherwise, the PSP (and its memory sticks) is much cheaper.

I use Handbrake to compress videos for the PSP. I don't remember if the preset for the PSP is broken though, but I have the exact settings that do work stored.

ps3 and psp work amazingly together, you could pick up a psp at a very affordable price these days.
