Good package and is good for buyers and could play it all day every minute butthe only thing is that there isnt a memory card but still a good package.

  The Best

| | See all Lockheart's reviews (1)

Gotta be everything I expected and more. Brand new and havent put it down since I got it. Cleared once and on my new game plus. The detail on the psp is great and gotta love the new model psp. Only downfall if you previously had the original psp is that the extension for the headphones you got with the original (has the play button etc on it) doesnt fit in this newer model. Same place for extension but different size chip tp fit it) but overall definitely worth every penny.

Thanks

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.

  A Brilliant Package, But With A Couple Of Minor Problems

| | See all MunkyVII's reviews (2)

1st off this is a nice little package. The PSP looks great & the game itself is fantastic, i cant put it down.

Now to the little problems:

1) The PSP itself isnt a Limited Edition, so blame Sony for the false advertising. You dont get the limited serial number, the photos cards, the book, or the FFVII charm. These are only available with the Asia Ver, but then again when has Europe actually ever had a proper Limited Edition games console. So alittle annoying but not really a problem.

2) No memory card, which i can only see a problem for new buyers of the PSP, but its not like their expensive nowadays.

Overall theres nothing wrong with the package, its a great price for a good looking PSP and with a great game included.

  Great Price Great Product

| | See all SickSinsENVY's reviews (3)

I wanted to buy a PSP just for Crisis Core and so when i saw this I grabbed it straight away. It works out cheaper than buying a standard Slim & Lite and the game seperately.

I'm very happy with it. It looks good, feels great, and the game is awesome. The cut scenes are the big 'wow factor' for me as they are 'Advent Children' quality in terms of animation.

Cant see why people are complaining to be honest. Its cheaper than the standard console and game. It doesnt state that a memory card is included (so i bought one at the time of purchase). Unless it is a third party bundle (created by play.com for example) you will rarely see that memory cards and other accessories are included.

They are still limited just as the japanese versions are. Think yourselves lucky as the US dont have this wonderful product!

  A great PSP

I own both PSP FFVII CC versions, the Japanese and the European, and I must say: the Japanese one has a great package, but concerning the console, I prefer the European version. Colors are identical, but FFVII logos are print "better". Who cares about a serial number? It's a really big thing SE decided to sell this beautiful PSP even in Europe. Once you got the psp and the game, you got all!

  Amazing portable with an amazing game...

| | See all inVINCEable's reviews (16)

...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!!!

  No memory stick!!

| | See all Kannyc's reviews (2)

Okay, so I am a girl but I have owned both the PS1 and PS2 and thought I would treat myself to a PSP. I love final fantasy and thought this would be the ideal package for me!! I have been playing on a DS for a while and I just presumed that there would be some limited internal memory on the PSP like ther is on the DS. After all it does say the PSP has 64mb memory. Yes I know you can get memory cards to hold more info on your PSP but I was totally unaware that I would not be able to save my game when I started to play on the day it arrived!! What a huge disappontment!! Memory is not that expensive so a small card could be included or more info but on the box or in the write ups to make it clearthat a memory card duo is needed for all game play. My 4GB card is on the way but the edge has been taken of the PSP for me. It is also quite tricky to hold as the buttons cover most of the face and placing your hands on the edge you could touch a button unexpectedly!! I agree with someone else aswell that it is a bit plastic and cheap looking. Hope Father Christmas brings me a PS3!!!!!!!!!

  Who care about a number?

| | See all UncleBuck's reviews (19)

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.
