 DON'T BE FOOLED!!!!

I'm writing this as a warning to others

With this you get:

Silver crisis core psp (slim and light)
crisis core standard game

* * THIS IS NOT THE SAME AS THE JAP RELEASE * *

The psp ISN'T the limited, Serial numbered, edition
it is a standard psp with a silver crisis core cover on it

The game ISN'T the limited edition crisis core game with booklet
it is the standard game loose in the box

YOU DO NOT GET the serial number (REAL LIMITED EDITION) psp, the key chain, the 2 photo stills or the limited edition game

Don't get me wrong i love the game, i can't fault it, i haven't put it down and the psp does look cool, i really like it

It just isn't the REAL limited edition version i was expected

 Who care about a number?

I bought one of these last week and I couldn't be happier. It's a great looking console with a great game. You're getting a Limited Edition console and a great game for £15 more than a normal PSP costs. That's a bargain.

People complaining that it doesn't contain a dumb keychain and a number need to stop. If you want those useless things then I suggest you go to some auction site and pay the crazy price they go for. If you like wasting money that's up to you. This pack contains everything you need. The console and the game.

Having played around with the revised PSP for a few days, we thought it time we let you know our thoughts. Clearly many areas of the handheld remain identical to the original model and as such we won't be covering those in particular detail (but you can always check out our original PSP review), preferring instead to focus on the elements that have changed and how these may or may not improve the PSP experience - which, we suspect, is why you're reading this.

The first thing that strikes you when you slide the new PSP out of its slender 23(L) x 12.5(H) x 8(D) cm box is that it feels too light. Even once you've slotted in the new 1200mAh battery (30g compared with the original's 44g 1800mAh model) - at which point you'll also note the battery cover may open more easily but it's also substantially thinner and more brittle - for an overall weight of 190g (compared with 280g), the handheld feels disconcertingly insubstantial.

The sense of unfamiliarity continues once you fire the unit up. It's nothing to do with the starting sequence, nor the front-end, both of which obviously remain identical (for those that may want to know, Slim & Lite comes with firmware v3.60 installed), but the new flat back is instantly noticeable. As is its enamel-like finish, which in a sense further contributes to the overwhelming cheap plastic feel (as well as showing up fingerprints with remarkable ease - the Ice White model can't come soon enough).

Give it five minutes, though, and the most wonderful transformation occurs. Because far from feeling too light, too flat, too thin, Slim & Lite suddenly becomes the PSP you've always wanted.

Well, within reason, obviously - there's still no second analogue nub, for a start. The point is, almost immediately the old model feels absurdly heavy and cumbersome, while its successor emerges as fresh and decidedly modern. The difference on paper (and even visually) may seem insignificant, but in the hand the contrast is striking.

In play, the improvements continue. The lower profiled face buttons are noticeable, though not as much as the alterations to the D-pad, which now boasts less travel and resistance, making it a considerably more comfortable proposition during prolonged play. The differentiation with regards to the analogue nub, meanwhile, is less pronounced but again the level of resistance appears to have been reduced, resulting in a perceived increase in smoothness and accuracy - although we'll reserve final judgement on this particular aspect until we've tried out a wider range of titles.

One area more directly assessed concerns the other changes to the design. So, for instance, the UMD tray is now a far simpler affair, opening manually (rather than spring-assisted, as previously) but considerably wider, too. The first time it's used it will feel a little odd, mainly because the UMD now sits loose against the tray until it is closed, but you soon appreciate the relatively more immediate, less fiddly nature of the new approach.

Similarly, the repositioned WLAN switch now feels more at home along the top edge of the unit, while the speakers appear to deliver better stereo imaging in their revised location.

Which leaves us with one obvious area of interest: the effect of the UMD cache on loading times. We'll be honest in revealing that we've had little opportunity to try out more than a couple of games, but we did notice a two-second reduction in the return to menu screen after finishing a Sega Rally race. Okay, it's a bit of a blink-and-you'll-miss-it improvement but it could be related to the game.

 Amazing portable with an amazing game...

...What more could you ask for?
The PSP is very pleasant on the eye and its sexier than the black and white options.
It is an amazing piece of kit and the fact that you can play ps1 games that are in your ps3 is wicked!
This was an impulse buy for me - just thought I'd treat myself and I'm so glad I did, love both game and console.

The graphics are completely out of this world for a portable console - shocked everyone in my family with the details in Crisis Core.

I've seen people eye'ing up the PSP on the train to work and i'm pretty sure they are jealous of its silvery prowess!

If you've been looking for an excuse to buy a PSP this has to be it - especially if you're an FF fan.

Very happy customer!!!

I'm a huge FF fan, and when I saw Crisis Core on the TV, I wanted it. Until I found it was only on PSP, and I didn't have a PSP. A couple days later I saw this and was instantly craving it.

I ordered it and it arrived the next day...

Though the picture doesn't show properly, it is a metallic silver, with a FF Logo on the back left, and Cloud and Zack on the back right. The analog button sticks out that little bit so is much easier to handle than the original PSP. (I played a friend's before I got this)

The game, although it isn't the special edition version, is still the game! A fantastic game with incredible graphics, well known characters (although the fact that Aeris is now spelt Aerith ticks me off slightly), and reveals the hidden depths of the past (If you've played FF7 on PS1 before anyway). But even if you haven't played the original, it's a good place to start, and very addictive!

If you like RPGs, purchase this and lets get addicted!
