Sony's PlayStation Portable is the first handheld gaming device to survive a battle with Nintendo, but is it worth your money? On paper, it seemed like such a good idea. [UPDATED for the pre-NGP/3DS era.]
This is our best advice — updated regularly — about whether or not you should buy a PSP, what games to get for it and what to watch out for.

Should I buy a PSP now?
ANSWER UPDATED, 2/21/11
No. Look, the PSP is/was a great system. It had lots of good games. But this is 2011 and there are several major portable gaming options either out now or on their way, even a new PSP — and none of them plays PSP disc games. So why jump on the PSP train now? It's about to be sent to the yard. Wait for the express.
