PSP Goes Live in Japan
The lines have been forming outside the Japan stores for some time now. Eager gamers are finally starting to get their hands on the system with all kinds of impressions starting to emerge on the internet. This clip from a Japanase show gives us a good glimpse at what the system looks like in broad daylight, if you can put up with the silliness. Gamestop has also begun taking pre-orders for the US launch, expected to be in March 2005. I've actually plunked down my own $50 this past week, though there are reports that EB is taking pre-orders for less than that. In case you've missed it, there is an entire PSP thread with additional media for both games and hardware at our Video Games board.

They might be, but they get to play with the PSP before us. That tech gadget is awesome. I can't wait to get my hands on one.

Can't wait for this to come out in the USA. Looks sweet...

Man, I can't wait to get one of these things. Although the DS is pretty cool and I want one of those as well, the PSP is going to blow it away when it finally gets here :). Maybe we will get lucky and they will release it even earlier here. lol
