    Help please choosing ipod touch or psp

    Hi,
    I cant decide I have my some birthday money left and I cant decide whether to go for a PSP or Ipod Touch? Both are wifi I think but I just cant decide.
    Any help appreciated.

    Games? - PSP

    Music? - Ipod Touch

    i'd go for ipod touch, that's coz i have the psp already

    Personally i would get a psp as you have the option of saving movies and music onto the memory card as well as playing games whereas you aint gonna be able to play games on a touch

    i have both.
    If you travel a lot or have long journeys to school/college/work etc. and can afford to regularly buy games then the psp...as it has the option of expanding its memory so you can have loads of music and films on it too. And yes it has wifi.
    However if you don't travel that much and will just use whatever you choose casually then the ipod...it can be in use pretty much whenever you like e.g at the gym (which is the downside of the psp as it is so big and heavy) and it has good functions as well as wifi.

    i love them both but use my ipod so much more as the psp can get boring if u dont refresh your game collection...

    :w00t: very helpful!

    this should be such an easy decision for you... unless you dont actually want anything but are alergic to savings orrrr you are not looking to use the device for it's primary purpose?

    you mentioned wifi? well psp had only limited encryption options and so you may have to change the settings on your router, possibly making it less secure.

    I dont have a ipod touch but if your contract is ending soon why not get an iphone instead?

    people usually but the touch for music and psp for games... different target market.. that's why it should be one of the easiest decisions... what do you want to do with it? btw... psp can play music and movies and display pics. but how much you can do is limited to the size of your memory card... but if you were going to get an ipod touch 8gb then you can get an 8gb memory stick for a psp and have the best of all worlds! ;-)

    Yes this is what I was thinking as I want it for in the garden in the summer if wifi reaches that far I would like to browse the web, listen to music and watch a movie not all at the same time:-D
    I think also it interacts with the ps3 which we have.
    I just wasnt 100% sure what the ipod touch would actually do.
    Thanks

    i think you can use the psp as a ps3 control pad... but the fat psp has a **** d-pad! and the internet on it is not that interactive... it's OK but not amazing! i have seen the internet on an iphone an it is much easier to use! also the internet on the psp is SLOOOOW!

    BTW the touch and iphone have the same features!

    sounds like i'm telling you to get the touch but i'm not! the psp is versatile but i just want you to manage your expectations! (plus on the game front.... lots of people use "back up" games on memory cards... so no limit there! that is a great feature!)

    Get a PSP and put modded firmware on it, happy handheld pc.

    oops i meant iphone not ipod touch - what was i thunking!

    I would get a psp and buy a memory card to put music onto, that way you can listen to music or play games.

    you just missed the pink one for £69!

    i'd honestly say get a fat one as there is not much difference main one being the slim can display on a tv... but the price difference doesnt make it worth it!

    and yes Ritchie 2... the slim one is also slimmer and lighter...:whistling:

    Anyone know where you stand if you had to use the warranty on a psp if you bought it off ebay new and boxed?

    Sony do a "No quibble" return with PSP's PS3's, they come to your house and exchange it at your door.
