Just a headsup. Not trying to push Costco on anyone, but they had probably 50 of them there.


wow thats crazy..i actually was in costco today and didnt see any..i guess i didnt look that hard. i also went to best buy and they were sold out there.

some bad news about the system i found out: the only movie they have for it right now is the one that it came with, spiderman 2. i guess they arent releasing more until next month...but they will be limited.

i didnt know they had a metal gear solid game out on this system already!! looks like i may be making another purchase in the near future. B-)

So wait, it will play full-size DVD's? The games are mini-disk right, how would the full-size ones fit in there?


they arent true minidisks, but they are about the same size...they arent full size dvds.

Any idea how much the movie disks retail for?

Also how much was the memory card (and what size) you got for it?

Cool, sorry to keep picking your brain for questions, but I'm seriously considering getting one of these (especially since I'm in the market for an MP3 player anyway, and the decent ones are nearly as much as this anyhow). So a couple more as I think of them ;):

How's the battery life when playing MP3's? Would I be able to take it into work for a full day (8 hrs) and listen to MP3's on it all day while I worked without buying an extra battery?

Also how is it in terms of carrying it around in your pocket? Too big or does it fit and will it scratch up the screen (one of the things I'm worried about is that it doesn't 'close' like the DS and Gameboy Advance SP's do), and same for the disks, I have enough problems keeping my PS2 discs from getting all scratched up and the UMD game boxes look huge, could you carry around one of the UMD disks in your pocket safely?

no prob...its a lot of money..thats why i made this thread is i hoped someone had someone had some answers for me as well..

i havent done it, but i honestly think if it can run games and movies off disc for 5 hours..it should be able to run mp3s off the card for longer, since there are no moving parts as opposed to games and movies having to be read from discs

um its pretty large for your normal pockets like in your pants, but it fits fine in my jacket pockets. in the case that they provide id say its probably 3-4 inches wide and about 9 inches long, and about 1 inch deep. as long as you keep it in the case thing they give you you shouldnt have to worry about scratches. they also sell really cheap screen protectors for it..they are like clear electromagnetic stickers that you can just switch out once they get beat up. i think they invested some serious money in the screen..it seems pretty durable (not easy to scratch).

the discs are like minidiscs in that they are in a hard case, so would actually just be damaging the cover if anything.. they have a small hole on the backside that it reads the disc through. they also some in these little carboard type sleeves. i usually just leave mine in that and keep them in my case with the psp stuffed on the backside of it. (its a stretchy type case that you can fit some games in )

Cool, thanks.

One other thing I just thought of that's kind of obscure so you might not know the answer. Can it play movies like avi's and divx files via the memory card from a PC?

Meaning, could I like hook the PSP up to my PC with a USB cable, transfer some avi or divx files onto it from there onto the memory card, and play them on the PSP later?
