Digital Fugue does the Ox.
Perhaps this is the reason for the long hiatus of the Fugue? Not really. Nevertheless, I was lucky enough to test out the Play Station Portable (PSP) this morning. Not quite a rigourous test but just a quick fix.
A friend of mine manage to get a package with one game just under RM1k. It was a Japanese model and the user manual is in Japanese. It would take quite a while to figure out the advance functionalities of the gadget.
The PSP rocks. It fits just nicely in your hands. The graphics are clear and crisp and the sound excellent. A definite 5/5 for product design! It is the sort of thing that would make you look forward to that long LRT ride back or that long drive back in a traffic jam.
I only had the chance to fiddle with it for about half an hour (which felt more like half a minute). I'd write a proper review if i had the chance to sleep with it over the weekend, but i don't think my friend would be too happy to part with his new baby. But the bottom line; it was preety impressive.
It could be useful if they include simple PIM functionalities like address book or calendar to it. It would definitely be a bomb if they include a cellphone module and perhaps a 1 mega pix camera in it... but that would be too much to ask right?
The only bummer is the limited games on the shelves and they're all original (with each game costing about RM 150 - RM 200). I would think twice before burning my hard earn cash.
I'd give it 3/5 for value for money. Well, if and when they have more (pirated) games on board, I might change the rating and get the PSP for myself. :p
