Wanting in on the portable gaming and multimedia device space, in 2005 Sony introduced the PSP (PlayStation Portable), a mobile device that allowed users to play games, music and video. Last month, the company released its most recent version of the gadget - the PSP 2000. Most immediately noticeable is the system's new size. The $169 unit is 33 percent lighter and 19 percent slimmer, but the 4.3-inch LCD screen hasn't been reduced at all. A new UMD drive helps speed up load times and conserves battery life.Still, the most intriguing new feature is the video-out capability, which will allow players to display their PSP games and movies in a window on their TV (cables sold separately). We tried this feature, and the transfer is pretty good, though we experienced a small amount of graininess because of the size increase.
