I've seen a few posts on websites, months and months ago and even now, people seem to think the PSP is a PS2 that you can carry around? I'd have to disagree. The graphics are incredible for a handlheld and unlike any other ever released but then that goes without saying since its the latest one released. The jump in power from say a GBA SP is like no other jump in performance on a console. Its abit like going from a Mega Drive\Snes to a PS1\Saturn, true. But the graphics ain't anywhere near as good as a PS2! The resolution appears similar - in so far as proportionatly to the display size. But the texture detail isn't very good at all! Take Ridge Racer, its definately very impressive but the scenery is pretty sparse, and the textures are very low resolution (NOT the resolution the game is running at - the actual textures) they also appear highly compressed IMO? To me, games look slightly worse than 3rd party 1st gen PS2 games at a lower resolution...Or slightly better than the cream of the PS1 games? Just got burnout legends the other day and am distinclty unimpressed with the graphics although the game is very good and am certainly not "disapointed". Anyways just curious what you lot all thought on this subject. Since the comparison is never made in that detail. On the odd FAQ on gamefaqs.com it says its like having a PS2 in ya pocket kinda catchy lines, but no actual comparsons are drawn. I realised it won't be quite as powerful and knew that when I got it and am very pleased with it, so please don't say "Just be happy with it"...I am Purely interested on what people think of the graphics relative to a PS2 or Dreamcast or Nintendo DS... Do you think its got a lot more potential for good "full" games like a console? Or do you think it will be like the GBA\GBA SP, where every game released is basically a half arsed low budget attempt with only a few people actually making the game. I suspect it will become like that myself and games will drop to £24.99 in the next 6 months or so? But who knows? see ya!
