    Hi,

    I'm thinking of getting a set of grips for my PSP as i find using the nub to be quite painful on my thumb after a while. I figure the grips would give me a better hold and save the cramp in my poor thumby.

    Can anyone recommend any and where to get them? I've forund some here but though i'd ask anyway.PSP Tree - Grips

    Thanks.

    Radica grips are the best:

    Not sure about the case it comes with. Has anyone tried other 3rd party grips? Did h0l1yw0od ever get some?

    I was looking at these myself, for much the same reasons: Brando Flexible

    For £5 who cares if they are crap, they are very cheap, and look OK to do the job.

    Ha ha you're right :oops: I think i was looking at some others that were like £25, but these seem better designed, and my brain hadnt acknowledged the price.

    I'll order some up and write up my thoughts if people are interested; while you might not take them on the road, probably real useful when at home for those longer sessions.

    Ok they arrived.

    Fairly solid, the rubber bits arent vert rubbery, but still grippy enough. It attaches to the PSP quite firmly and most importantly does help with handcramp, as theres just more to hold onto. Obviously it adds way more bulk, but good for sitting down sessions at home.

    I cant quite put my finger on it, but its not as comfy as a dual-shock, but certainly better than trying to delicately hold the PSP by itself. So yeah a decent buy for a fiver.

    Yeah i got the Black ones in the end from here http://www.gameseek.co.uk/pd/PSPvg0y60z6bn7zf9h2/Gamester-Black-PSP-Comfort-Grips. They do the job nicely and come with a overall clear case that snuggly wraps the PSP. I would have liked a little foam inside at strategic points just so theres no risk of the plastic rubbing or scuffing the PSP itself, but i've seen no evidence of this.

    Worth the buy for all round protection and comfort use. :thumbsup:
