A Look Inside the PSP Box
After a painful week of waiting, the digital stork has delivered a bouncing bundle of joy - the official PSP of PSX Extreme. It only took 48 hours to get from Tokyo to Virginia Beach, Virginia, but I was out of town until today, which accounts for the painful part of the wait.
The shipping box is kinda cool.
I've done little more than turn on the system and set the menus to English, but I did snap a few pictures of the box, what comes in it, and one of the unit itself.
The PSP box and two games.
Let's start with the box, shall we? It's a little bigger than I imagined it would be, and while it's not as sexy as the PS2 box, it's still nice looking. The box is labeled "value pack" but I think that's just to make me feel like I got a good deal on the system, as there's not really much in the way of cool extras inside. Here's a list of the contents:
- Wired remote control (feels really cheap)
- 32 Mb Memory Stick (It's tiny, and easy to lose)
- Strap (ohh, exciting!)
- Soft case (It's not fancy, but it's a must)
- Power cable
And the system...
We'll be updating all weekend with tons of pictures, impressions of Ridge Racers and Hot Shots Golf, and answering any questions you have about the system. If you'd like to ask a question about the system, post it here in our forums, or send an email and I'll try to answer your question in my Sunday update.
