    I'm sorry, but i just don't like the white look. It says the new firmware version is going to available wednesday in Japan, what about in the US? do we have to wait until sept. 15th to download it?

    I tend to agree with some of the comments on that page. It seems it would take a lot more than a new color to make PSPs sell well. (If that is indeed the problem)

    Yes, that article is devoid of any info on a US release of v2.0 and that web browser. Using Wipeout is fine for grins, but it'd be nice to have something more official to use.

    The white PSP? Fugly. I like my black one just fine, tyvm.

    i would rather have a black psp, but the white doesn't look that bad. i could see this selling just as well.

    I'm actuallly liking the look of it. When I read the title of this thread I thought it was going to look terrible, but I like the way they've kept it "clean". Still, I won't make my mmind up until I've got both a white and a black PSP in front of me, and once the decision is made, out comes Mr. Visa......

    Looks OK, but I prefer the black. I think that v2.0 will be a bigger deal than a new color...

    Yeah, I prefer the black. But this is good news for people with iMac, iBook.

    Most people "know" yin & yang now. At least, they've seen the symbol and have a rough idea of the idea of opposites (though there's much more to yin and yang than that). Sorry, but more than just "some smart people" will get what you mean.

    I think this just gives people a new reason to steal from people they see walking around with white earbuds.

    I wouldn't mind picking up a PSP. However, I am not sure how often I would use it. I had a Gameboy SP and played it twice. I know that the PSP is a much better device than the gameboy but I'm still unsure. Maybe a few fellow posters can talk me into it :D

    i wouldnt care if it came in pink as long as the price came down... to get any real use out of it your gonna spend $250 for psp $49 for a game $100 for a gig mem stick ( for music :) ) and another $20 for a decent case... i wish they would drop down to $199 or even $149.. it wont happen though so i guess i can be happy with a $250 stylish white psp :(

    I just thought about it a the psp is the same price as one of my car payments... it would proably sell better if it wasnt so damn expensive

    I agree. I would love to buy a PSP, but I can't get past the fact that they're so expensive. The price tag is theoretically inside of what I'd like to spend on something like that, but then I remember that I would probably spend upwards of $500 just getting the thing effectively tricked out with games and accessories. So no, I won't be buying a PSP anytime soon. :(

    It wasn't the price tag of the PSP that is pushing me away from using my PSP. It's the price of the games. I don't think a game for a portable system should be over $30. I just can't justify paying $50 for a game anymore, for any system. I wish they would do something like Nintendo has done, and come out with some compilation discs that have several old games on them, and sell them for $20. Sometimes I'm not in the mood for the latest and greatest, sometimes a simple 2-button game is all I want to play.

    $500 is about right to get a decent PSP set up. I think I am right around there now, and all I have it the system, 2 games, a 512mb card and a USB cable (plus tax for everything). And they are not holding their value on eBay either. I tried selling my whole setup and the highest bidder was $275.
