Inside the PSP System Menus

We've shown you the PSP as it arrived, the snazzy packaging, and what's included in the box, but it's time to turn it on and take a look.

Power saving options.

Once the system is powered on, you can select a language, set the time and date, and give your PSP a nickname. After that, you are taken to the main menu page where you can adjust a wide array of settings for the unit. Here are some of the many things you can do:

Checking the battery power.

  • You can choose a power saving mode that will turn off the screen and/or put the system to sleep after a set amount of time. You can choose how long you want to wait before it takes any action.
  • There's an option to check for system updates.
  • You can set a password for your PSP, and there's a parental lock mode as well.
  • When viewing pictures, there's a slide show option which has different speed options.
  • The languages for the system menus, audio tracks, and even subtitles can be altered. There's an English option for all three.
  • You can view how much charge is in the battery, how many hours of playtime you have left, and see if the unit is drawing power from the battery or power adapter.
  • Format a memory card.
  • The PSP makes a clicking noise when you scroll through the menu. Thankfully this can be turned off.

Language Options.
