As if I'm not on here enough already...
Now I can be near any wifi access point and posting on Runryder

YEs, picturtes, links and text input all work on the PSP. You can even download files from online into the PSP and use them as desktop items etc..

I just got a PSP, but haven't messed with the WiFi yet. How hard is it to set up? How much do you get charged to visit websites, such as RR? You've got me thinking now...

WiFi is just any old wireless internet connection you can get from almost any wireless router. your neighbours probably have it...and probably most of them with no passwords, schools, coffee shops soemtimes have free wireless internet and so on.

go down to "starbucks" and tap into their connection.. etc..
(they allow WIFI laptop access, so a PSP will work there)

You need to do the "system update" to get the browser working on the psp (doesn't come with the browser pre-installed)

Once you do, you navigate a "mouse pointer" with the analog joystick slider thingy. You can add favorite to make going to runryder quick.. just like on a normal web browser. The X button would be = to a left mouse click, and triangle opens up the browser options menu.
Then, type http://www.runryder.com into the browser address bar, and click the bookmark button, then add bookmark.

Going to Runryder will be a click away from any WIFI "hotspot". Such as
hotels, coffee shops, some gas stations and parking on a neighborhood street and "searching" for wireless access.

You can also do email (needless to say..) and PM's.

Not enough... an old PDA makes a better browser - you can probably get better games for it too >_<

Forgive me, I was an early adopter... and I own MG Acid..

PS. Anyone want to swap a PSP for something of infinitely more worth and value? A house brick maybe, half a packet of matches? I'm open to offers here.

Very good, but I'm not sure on that one. You'll have to check the PSP website or search that up online.
The pictures make it look like crap, but the PSP really does have an amazing high res screen. The photos are misleading

and value?
For those who don't need or own PDA's..
This makes a nice MP3 player and portable video player, as well as a Wifi internet browser, home and portable entertainment system, and data transfer, sharing and storage device.

I have found plenty of uses for mine
And yes, MG acid, or any MG after the original on pS1, was boring, and "old news"

Did I mention they have several hundred movies out for PSP WMD format too? You can find your favorite movie for your PSP..

Mercury sucks my chestnuts.
GTA is ok but I can play GTA3 on my PC if I really wanted to.

Nice try, but if you owned one you'd have said Luminese. That's about all it's got that's exceptional and that's not designed for play during a commute. The better you get at it the longer the game lasts for. Portables require quick fix gaming, the PSP has no decent quick fix titles.

I'll save you the two thousand word essay, and just tell you that the PSP is bling. It's a £180 remote control for the PS3. Laugh now; you can buy me a pint when I'm proved right.

I messed with the wifi of the PSP last week. It's a matter of only a few minutes to set it up. It's really cool to use it however it's a little slow and the browsing not that easy.

This has turned into a rather interesting thread on whether PSPs are worth the money or not.

I went through a very difficult decision-making process when I bought my PSP a few weeks ago.

For the money I spent on the PSP, I could have equipped my T-Rex. Now I'm still waiting. But you know what? PSP has a lot going for it.

1) Weather doesn't matter
2) I can keep from crashing it with only a minimum of effort.
3) Its "spare parts" (games) last a while
4) I can play it while I'm waiting on my wife for whatever reason
5) I don't have to be at home or near a monitor.

Like it or not, the RC heli hobby sometimes involves long waits for parts, funding, breaks in the weather, etc. None of this holds up the PSP. The PSP fills the gaps nicely for me. The trick is to try to pick games with replay value.

By the way, I just LOVE the Metal Gear games. I haven't played Acid, but just finished Acid 2. It's a guilty kind of fun, sneaking up on people and knifing them, or drilling a hapless guard with a sniper rifle from a couple hundred yards. All this while saving the world from a psycho with a nuke-wielding super-robot.

I had a good few months fun out of mine. I think that's all you can hope for nowadays. I was talking to one chap and he suggested that three good games for any one console was par for the course. I think he's right.

I love my PSP, once I learned you could run Emulators on it, I was GOLDEN! I'm still playing SNES and Sega Genesis games. Someone is currently working on a N64 emulator and Sony is to release a PS1 emulator. That means all the PS1 games on your PSP. Doesn't get any better than that. As more and more hacke... uh developers discover the PSP's potential the more we'll see and now that the PS3 is out and can interface with the PSP, things are going to get interesting. I still play mine and love it. The PSP is more versatile than you think, gotta do a little searching to see it's true power.

They run emulators on it now? Sweet! I can get my all time favorite game on it then.. EARTHBOUND! that game rocks. Where can I score the emulator for SNES? I have ZSNES on my PC with the game on it already..

BTW, page loading speed on the PSP has to do with the wireless connection. Pages load for me in a second or so, almost as fast as my PC.

Mario cart on the new nintendo DS is fun, but it doesn't have a web browser that I know about yet. Wish they would kick my nintendo DS up to par with my PSP. I have the japanese version of earthbound on the DS. AKA "mother2" in japanese
