Sony PSP E1000 (PSP Street) – Good or Bad ??

SONY PSP Street E1000

When it comes to gaming, one of the names that come to your mind is SONY. Sony is a brand that has dominated the gaming industry for ages. They are very popular for their Playstation Gaming Console series which starts right from the PSX, PSone and goes all the way to PS2, PS3, and the mighty PSP series. The recent series is the SONY PSP Street E1000.

Sony PSP Street E1000 is worth buying?

  • The cheap and economic model
  • Solid Build quality
  • Attractive design

Today we are going to check out yet another Gaming Console that has been recently launched by Sony. We shall check out what’s hot in it and what’s not. And what makes it stand apart from its earlier models. What we are checking out today is the new SONY PSP E1000 SERIES !!

The SONY PSP E1000 so to say is a ‘Cheap’ and ‘Economic’ model from the PSP series, launched by Sony. This model does not have Wi-Fi connectivity, and at the same time, it has just one speaker on the left side, visible in the above screen-shot. This model also has the same screen as that of the PSP 3000 so brightness and clarity will not be a problem.

Many have commented that this model seems to have a ‘Horrendous’ built quality. It feels as if the device parts are going to fall apart. Many people seemed to be confused about what to conclude after taking a look at this device. It has a total ‘Carbon Like Body’. It makes it completely diametrical when compared to the ‘Shiny Gloss Body’ that the PSP 3000 series has. Now I have not yet got my hands on a PSP E1000 machine, so I can’t say much personally.

Attractive Price Tag for PSP Street E1000

The only thing that could attract a lot of people to the SONY PSP E1000 is the lightweight price tag of $100. Apart from this, there is hardly any reason why someone should go for a PSP E1000, instead of a PSP 3000.

By the way, the PSP Street E1000 also has a UMD slot. It means it can play all the mainline PSP games. And this PSP will probably have the latest 6.60 firmware, which means that Homebrew will not be a problem either.

Now even though there’s a lot of time for Christmas, if I wanted to buy a PSP for myself, then I would rather spend that extra $30 and get myself a PSP 3000 worth $130. It is because I do not want to lose a chance to play multiplayer games. Also, I do not wish to have a Single Speaker on my Gaming Console.
