Sony Playstation Portable (PSP) Repairs
Sony released its first handheld video gaming console in 2005. The handheld gaming console category has traditionally been dominated by Nintendo whom released the Nintendo Game Boy, Game Boy Colour, Game Boy Advance (GBA) and then the DS series. Models released were the PSP-1000 series, PSP-2000 series and PSP-3000 series, with the latter two being the redesigned Slim & Lite and also the less popular PSP Go. The Sony Playstation Portable (PSP) has a sleek design and with an advanced LCD screen, provides much better quality graphics than its rival the Nintendo DS. Though it comes with the bigger price tag than its rival, the difference is definitely worthwhile for the serious gamer as game quality is much better. The better screen and graphics capability mean that users can use it to watch movies and videos, view photos and browse the internet. The PSP utilises the same easy-to-use XMB (XrossMenuBar) as the Playstation 3 (PS3) and regular system software updates are available on the Playstation Network. The games available and the price of the console means the PSP is more directed towards children over the age of 12 and young adults. Sony introduced the Universal Media Disc (UMD) with launch of the PSP console, an optical disc media capable of storing up to 1.8 GB of data. Some movies were also released onto UMD format for PSP use however this option did not prove popular and many production studios withdraw their support of the UMD. The PSP handheld gaming console continues to be the only electronic gadget to utilise this media format. The Sony Memory Stick Duo is used in the PSP console to increase data storage capability and for users who have a custom firmware installed on their PSP, also enables them to store games and homebrews. Though generally fairly reliable the PSP does present with a variety of different issues, the most of which tend to be a result of misuse, such as the LCD screen cracking, the analog stick breaking, or the console being dropped.
