You had better remedy that. You will find the learning curve here both quick and heavy handed.

Forgot to add- watch out when you're playing wireless, the unit gets kind of hot after a while. Nothing hot enough to damage anything, but it appears to be normal. So don't worry if your psp gets warm when playing using the wireless function.

can you download movies from the internet onto a memory card on a site similar to itunes but with movies?


Forgot to add, you need a program to make them into mp4 format movies, I'll post the link if anyone needs it.

Oh, heavy handed... Watch out for spoon, he has cold hands.

Hey Ompa, could you post that link? My friend (who's lucky enough to have one of these babies already) needs to dump some movies onto his PSP.

I don't understand how you guys can afford all this stuff, there's no way i can afford to spend that much money on just video games.

Just what I was thinking... And I don't even want one. I never use my GameBoys anymore, 1. they're obsolete and 2. I like my iPod better :). Ploofull has two DS's (though one is his sister's). But he likes video games WAY more than I do. To each his own, I guess :). Ploofull, I have nothing against games, and you're not like addicted or anything, I just don't like 'em as much.

Here's the link.

Matt, I like video games. I like movies. I like music (I don't even have 1gig of music, so storage isn't a huge issue). Hence, I like something that can do all three in a portable fashion- the psp.

Muchas gracias.
I agree. The PSP's like an MP3 player, (sort of) a portable DVD player, a digital photo album, and gaming machine all in one. Since I need an MP3 player and portable movie player, and I love video games, it's an easy decision.

Hehe, the PSP episode of South Park sure was a good one. An archangel sniffing a marker, Darth Sidius lookalike, LOTR-ish concept of Heaven vs. Hell...It's all good! :blink:

Just got my psp yesterday and I love it. No dead pixels! I first watched Spiderman 2, and I have to say the quality of that massive screen is superb. I greatly enjoyed the movie. Afterwards I played some World Tour Soccer, and I am also pleased with it. Basically the same as fifa, but I would think fifa is going to be a bit better when it comes out. I want some good FPS's and a damn usb cord, I can't get any mp3's or movie files on shakur (my psp's name) yet!

I've been trying to view movies on my psp and no dice. I put them in the right format and everything, but I can't seem to find out how to view the movies. Is there something else that needs to be done?

Did you note my mention of "Image Converter 2", the official sony software for converting their videos? It's much more efficient (smaller size), and is overall a better program. linkage
Edit: My bad, looks like it only supports windows. -Sorry.

No, I'm definately able to browse the web on my PSP. It's just greatly overlooked because most people aren't willing to bother setting up their wireless network, or don't know the right way to do it. To browse sites you move with the directional pad to different hyperlinked stuff, and to type you hit X over a text entry box, and an API pops up, the same one you use to type other stuff. It's layout is very similar to typing text msgs on a cellphone, with the letter/num pad. Then you hit the start button a couple times to finish your entry, and it places the text in that box. Pretty sensible....

Anyway, for anyone who doesn't know how to hook up their psp, make sure you got a wireless router running mixed 802.11b/g, and boot up your psp. Make sure your wireless switch is on. Go into the network settings, pick infrastructure mode, and make a new connection(any name works). Scan for your router, and select it when you find it. Go to the next screen, and choose to custom set up your address settings. Use automatic IP address settings, and then manual DNS settings manually. For the primary DNS, use 67.171.70.72. Your secondary DNS address should be whatever your router's is (start menu>run>type cmd in the box>type in ipconfig in the dos prompt, hit enter). Do not use a proxy server. Test your connection, save it, and then fire up wipeout pure. Go into the 'download' option in wipeout pure, and select the new connection you made. It should load up a portal that says psp web portal by fugimax, and will have a bunch of things to click on. If it only shows a mostly grey screen w/ a little thingy in the upper left corner, hit the square button (refresh button) to reload the page. Try a few times if it doesn't work. This site gets tons of traffic so patience is key; sometimes the site is just down. If it loads up the wipeout pure coming soon deal, that means the site is down, and it's using the secondary DNS you put in, which connects to the site it's supposed to go to.

Another option if the DNS is down a lot is a secondary portal. Just use 64.5.48.92 which is another portal made for the psp (you could substitute this for your secondary DNS if you wanted). It also gets lots of traffic, so bear that in mind.

As for browsing, some tips are to avoid sites with lots of flash and crazy coding, as they can lock up your psp (no biggie, just hold the power switch till it shuts off). The hidden browser can only run basic html, no flash, java, music, video, shockwave, etc. One plus is that it can load up images, so be sure to check out pennyarcade. Another plus is that IRC for psp is in development. As for actual browsing, L is back, R is foreward, x is enter (usu. html link), sqare is reload, and the arrows are for scrolling through pages or moving between links. To exit the browser, press the start button. There is a loading indicator in the upper left corner which will move when stuff is loading, and stop when it's done. Remember, the psp isn't near as strong as a pc, so keep patience when browsing, as it's not really designed to do so.

If I left stuff out, just ask or PM.

I would LOVE to get a PSP, but I don't have that kind of money to spend at the moment. I was always fascinated with it when I saw the previews, and then my friend brought his over and it was beautiful. I was never impressed with the DS, it seemed like one big marketing gimmick. As long as gamers are willing to put up with the higher pricepoint of the PSP, I think it will smash the DS, at least until Nintendo puts out a new portable, which should be...5 minutes from now...
