I don't actually own one, but as I understand things and from playing on a friends PSP for a bit.. get Lumines. If you ever enjoyed tetris, it will be your favorite game.

I just bought Ape Escape, Team America World Police and Sin City and so far have played ape escape and sin city and the graphics are amazing. Plan to watch Team America tonight. Any other must have movies?

Don't buy any movies. I don't see why anyone would buy a movie they can only watch on the little, teeny, tiny PSP screen while it eats up your batteries when - for the same price (or, with older titles, sometimes even less) you can buy the same movie on DVD complete with tons of extra features and the ability to play it on any DVD player in the country and share the experiences with friends and/or loved ones. Just because something's available doesn't make it a worthwhile purchase.

(Not that it's much of an issue - I work at a DVD store that's now carrying a wall of PSP movies and they're not selling at. All. We've sold four, yes, four since the launch of the system. [One copy each of Tron, Sin City, Cabin Fever and Halloween - three of which were all to the same person. Oh, and once we sold a copy of Steamboy to a guy who thought it was a proper DVD, but that doesn't really count since he returned it the next day.] Aside from that, all they've done is sit there, collecting dust and confusing the elderly, who alternately ask if "that's gonna be the next big thing there" (and I usually explain to them that it's more of a failed experiment) and demand to know why "I'm" not releasing more movies "in VCR".)


EDIT: Oh, and if you insist on buying some movie, they just released "Time Bandits" for it this week! Time fucking Bandits! It begins and ends right here.

I own three games, 2 of which are well..eh. The best I have is Midnight Club 3. I'm not in to racing games at all (never even played Grand Turismo ####) but I am having fun with this game.

As far as movies go I have to agree with past replies. Don't do it. I bought one (Black Hawk Down...Hey haven't seen it yet) just for the benefit of our long flight/long layover for our upcoming vacation.

By the DVD it's cheaper and you'll enjoy it more at home.

I know its kinda taboo around these parts but I've also heard you can copy a movie (a movie you own!) to 512MB or higher memory stick. I'm not sure how and basically I am to afraid to try it. I am unaware of the legal ramifications involved when copying media and converting to another media type for which it was not intended. My guess is that it is probably illegal so don't do it anyways.
