The PSP Is Sony's Gateway Drug

Illustration for article titled The PSP Is Sonys Gateway Drug

Marijauana, a gateway drug? What is this, the mid-90s? No. Today, kids have far more discerning tastes, and will first experiment with a PlayStation Portable before, after a few parties with their new, "cool" friends (who their parents most definitely do not approve of), stepping up to a full-blown addiction on the heavier shit, like a PlayStation 3. Least, that's what SCEA's John Koller thinks, as speaking at the (*breath*) Wedbush Morgan Securities Management Access Conference in NYC, he says loads of people have picked up the PSP as their "first" console, which has later convinced them to upgrade to a $400-a-year PS3 & Blu-Ray habit. Be warned, parents: if you see your child playing around on a PSP, and do nothing, don't complain to us when you wake up one morning and your DVD player's missing, your wallet's short $50 and your son has passed out on the couch in front of the Blu-Ray version of Planet Earth.

My PSP is only around because for it's price, it remains the most effective jack of all trades. I lovingly think of it is my big old MP3 player which becomes a game machine when I have need of it.

I had a PSP before a PS3 and i'd sell the PSP before my PS3. The only reason I have a PS3 was 400 dollars of trade in credit built up over a year at the local mom and pop gaming shop and 250 dollars of birthday money and a firm want to not get fucked over by the end of the 60 gig PS3s on market.
