Sure, it's nice to have a choice in colors and I thought the ability to use it as a movie player for you TV is cool, but it's still a slight improvement on a broken system. The fact that he used Spiderman 2 to demonstrates how it works is evidence of that.
On a related note, I was hoping Nintendo would have revealed that rumored DS with the closer together screens and more comfortable grip. Definately would have upgraded to that from my old DS "Phat".
How is the PSP a broken system and why does playing Spiderman two prove that?
It's broken b/c it's not being used to play games like it's intended to. It is, afterall, a PlayStation. What would the PS3 be if people only used it to surf the internet and listen to music and watch movies. It would be a crappy PC, but at least there are games for PCs. The PSP is more like an iPhone except without the phone. There are only a hand full of decent games for PSP, which has been out for a few years now. And none of them are system sellers IMO.
And as for showing Spidey 2. It's one the first movies available for the PSP. Heck, everyone that owns a PSP probably has b/c it came in the box. Why not show something a little more recent like Spidey 3? I know it was just in theaters, but still. Maybe do a little cross promotion and give us a release date for Spidey 3 on DVD, UMD, and Blueray? And speaking of UMD, I don't see that advertized anymore. For the first year of PSP life, I saw every movie that came out on DVD advertize that it's on UMD too. But less and less so now.
