Just wanted to take the chance to recomend the new Sony handheld system to anyone who's into that sort of stuff. I picked one up on the weekend and am surprised at how much it actually does.

-Plays PSP Games
-Plays UMD Movies using the MPEG-4 (DVD) codec.
-Views Images
-Plays MP3's
-Plays Multiplayer games using Wifi
-Surfs the net

Highy recomend it over the Nintendo DS for anyone interested.

Yeah that look awesome. If they had a hard drive it would be better though.

And the arcade machine only costs $700 after raiding the dump and about 100 hrs to build. Sounds kinda like the Dell argument to me :)

Oh and that is including all the above mentioned games. There are over 5000 games on my arcade machine. By the time you buy that many for a PSP you have spent 10 times the money and just as many man hours

Byso, you can get 2bg memory sticks for them. Unfortunatly they are close to $300. The fact that it comes out with updates to improve the Internet Browser is great. I am getting ADSL installed next week so I can't wait to use the wireless function to play multiplayer games on the web.

BTW, its just a thread, not a comp. I'd love an arcade machine to. For me, the more technology the better. In fact, Im looking into the prices of the old pin ball machines. Now theres some fun.

Anything mate. Price is of no concern. You get what you pay for.
