Sony PSP 2000 and PSP Go

Sony’s PlayStation Portable first made it’s entrance to the market five years ago, on the 24th March. It become available in the US then and saw release to other parts of the world shortly after. Since then, the PSP has seen several make overs. The original 1000 series is now referred to as the “phat PSP”, ever since the PSP 2000 series, aka PSP Slim was launched in 2007 making the portable device 33% lighter and thinner. Shortly after, in 2008, we saw the release of the PSP 3000 series, aka “PSP Brite”, which had an LCD screen with five times the color contrast ratio. Sony’s latest PSP offering came in the form of the PSP Go in Fall 2009. The PSP lost it’s UMD drive and instead, titles can be downloaded from the PSN Store. Currently there are more than 520 UMD titles and over 300 titles on the PlayStation Network.
