Sony sees red over PSP
Sony has refreshed its PSP line-up for the Christmas rush. It's releasing the handheld console in a seasonal red shade and with two accompanying bundle packs.
Sony's red PSP: available with a TV tuner
Dubbed the Deep Red PSP, gamers will be offered the unit in either a Value Pack or a Seg Pack – so called because it includes a Seg TV tuner for watching digital TV broadcasts, if you get bored of gaming.
The tuner was unveiled for Japan earlier this year, but it’ll only work there because 1seg is the country’s mobile terrestrial digital audio, video and data broadcasting service.
Both packs also include a hand strap, pouch and cloth. However, the Seg Pack has a stand and 1GB Memory Stick Pro Duo card thrown in too, instead of the Value Pack’s lesser 32MB card.
The Value Pack will cost ¥22,800 (£95/€115/$190) and the Seg Pack ¥29,800 (£125/€145/$250). There’s no word yet on a European release.
I wondered how long.........
it would take to get the fanbios out

As opposed to cut-down N64 games with a stylus crowbarred in?
@ Steve Barnes
So, 'real' games = cut down PS2 games?
Thanks for clearing that up for me.
Re: The biggest problem........
I have both handhelds, and I have to disagree.
The DS is good fun, and I love Pokémon & bomberman, etc. but in terms of real games, the PSP is great. Ratchet is amazing, Ridge Racer kicks ass, MGS Portable Ops is fantastic, Death Jr, Virtua Tennis, Burnout, etc etc. Plus it's my MP3 player & Car Stereo when hooked up with my FM transmitter too :)
The biggest problem........
with the PSP is that it still isn't a DS
