Introduced by Sony in E3 2003, the PlayStation Portable became a highlight throughout the year and soon after its release in late 2004, it became the most powerful gaming device of its time. When compared with GBA, the PSP is quite similar in terms of launch time and sales, but in terms of hardware configuration, the PSP proved to be much stronger when it was said to be as strong as the PS1 and could run games up to several GB in size. Not only a pure gaming device, but PSP is also considered a mobile entertainment device when it provides a variety of powerful entertainment applications such as web browser, youtube, a media player. With a large external speaker and a beautiful display, many people at that time used the PSP to replace the inconvenience PC.
The PSP is a handheld gaming device that should be fairly basic in size, 17cm in length, 7.4cm wide, 2.3cm thick and weighs 280 grams (including the battery). This is an ideal size from that day until now for a handheld gaming device.

However, with the LCD background, you can play for hours without eye strain. That’s why until now, PSP devices are still very popular with users because of its portability.

The battery life of the PlayStation Portable battery is quite small compared to other systems from Nintendo, with nearly 2000mAh battery, you can play games continuously for 3 hours with the network connection turned on.
