Default Sony PSP..is it worth it?

HI, I am wondering whether the current version of the Sony PSP is worth the money ($250), I was thinking about getting an ipod for music but the ipods are so damn expensive that I thought I could be playing games for less money instead of just listning to music. So is it worth it to buy a psp now, or is there a new psp in the making or something? im looking to use it for games, a little bit of music, a lot of image carrying around (im an artist), and watching movies.

thanks, and I wouldnt mind hearing from people who have PSPs

It really depends what you're going to do with it. It's great for those who use it to mainly game, but want music and video as a small side dish. If you're looking for a music/video jukebox, look somewhere else, the PSP's lack of storage space makes it a liability when it comes to being a good music/video player.

Nope. For 50$ more you have an xbox 360! PSP is just an over rated gameboy with PS2 graphics. Just an over priced laptop with a really small LCD screen. JUst NOT WORTH IT!

The best thing about a PSP is the simple fact that it's portable. It's like a multimedia center all wrapped up in a fun, sleek, portable device that you can take anywhere. If you are looking for something like that, the PSP is the best thing to get.
