does anyone else here use their psp for other things than games?
for me personally, i bought the psp for so many other reasons than games. i use mine primarily for internet, music and movies. i used to do the whole homebrew thing with emulators and what not, (one of the huge reasons why i wanted a psp so bad, i am a gp32 owner as well) but i got sucked into the features with firmware updates and i havent really looked back.
now, there are so many possibilities for the psp and junk, like the whole revolution jabber i have heard lately which sounds great to me. its about time they expand the psp to more than just games. i have yet to buy one official game! lol
i think its a great little machine which could be alot better if they really treat it like a personal entertainment unit that encompasses everything everyone is screaming about. such as a keyboard that wont be delayed to cancellation, a web browser that enables cookies and flash and please dear god some better java capabilities, rss that can download music and movies, gps, photo and/or camera, free range over the media aspects.(but homebrew without sony getting in a snit is a pipedream. leats be realistic. they wont give up). i love the homebrew scene, dont get me wrong. its awesome to see what people can cook up!
so, id like to hear what people use their psp's for. if more than just games.
i do personally i make use of the music, network, and games the most. The others, LocationFree TV, Photo, etc. i could care less about.
My MUSIC folder is empty. I use it for gaming with UMD's and through emulators. I also have a few memory sticks that I use soley for movies.
i guess im mostly on my own. so far none of the games thrill me and i like the other (and still possible) features of the psp. maybe ill crack one day. but im sick of racing and 1st person shooters*snore*.
so far i like puzzle games and games like street fighter. open for suggestions to get a game finally. but what?
mostly, im wondering if there is anyone else out there that uses their psp for anything else besides the games they offer. i mean no games at all. lol. maybe im the only freak. hehehe
I use mine for Games (UMD and Homebrew), videos, music, pics some what. I don't use location free TV. The Internet, I rarely use, maybe when I go by a cafe or store with a wireless Internet connection.
My music folder is empty also.
I use mine for games, emulators, videos, and other homebrews.
thats what i do to get internet on my psp. or i walk around city streets and find someone with no protection on their wireless router. hehehe! cant right now, im from canada so its a bit cold.
but i have a router in my house so it suits me good to walk around my house browsing or listening to my music through rss with hfs. love that program
i have been hearing that alot. not many people use their psp's for music. i am always using it for atrac3plus at 66. dont go any lower than 66. huge audio quality drop. i have the one gig card so i can fill that sucker up. lol. mp3's run at around 3-4 megs for a 3 min song (but also depends on bitrate, i mean 128kb) atrac3plus gives me a crapload more room.
Well i use my PSP for everything at the moment, i have 3 memory sticks each 1GB in size, 1 for games/homebrew/magz etc. 1 for Music and 1 for Movies. i am really into the PSP applications more then i am into the Homebrew games to be honest (i still love the games though don't get me wrong, games such as PSPRevo and Laserix2 and not to forget Sqaurez, all fantastic) but at the moment i am finding that i am using the new TI-92 calc. and previous version before that. but music and movies memory stickts are always with me in my carry case. :)
My PSP's main use is for NES and SNES roms, second is UMD's. Those are about the only 2 things I use my PSP for.
Not on your own, I got my first PSP in a bundle with a bargain laptop with the intention
to sell it, discovered what the PSP could do, sold the laptop, and kept the PSP to fill the
purpose of the laptop :D
This is a true story.
I got Wipeout UMD thrown in with my next PSP, and that's still my only game UMD.
If Gran Turismo plays on 1.50 then I will buy it.
yeah, i mostly got my psp to do alot of laptop things too but more compact and i think its got a kitchy style to be browsing the web out on the street with it. looks cool too. lol
and i see a couple of you mention you use it for emulation? which systems mostly? before i updated from firmware 1.5. i was all about sega genesis and NES. (snes played too slow at the time)
i have only one gig chip, but i do have a 256 chip and the crappy 32 one it came with. 32, why fricken bother? lol so i envy you dude, you have 3 of them. i put movies on mine too, not that i dont want to buy the umd(all though they are majorly overpriced) alot of my movies i like you cant find on the umd format anyway.
but keep the comments coming folks. i think its interesting to see what people use their psp's for.
