For all the Slim and Lite PSP owners in Japan, this is something to put on your shopping list. Sony have released a cute little PSP 1seg TV tuner for the Slim and Lite PSP – being 1seg, it obviously only works in Japan, and it only works with the Slim and Lite. Let’s hope Sony make TV tuners for other world markets soon!
Sony have announced V2 of the PSP, and they’re calling it “PSP Slim and Lite”. Seems like a silly name, but it sure looks nice. The new PSP Slim and Lite is available in Ceramic White, Piano Black, Ice Silver, Felicia Blue, Lavender Purple, Rose Pink, Metallic Blue, and Silver. There’s also a very nice Crisis Core Final Fantasy VII bundle available too.

It’s here! A year after the release of the popular DJ simulation game, Pentavision has released the imaginatively titled successor – DJ Max Portable 2. The DJ Max Portable games are similar to Konami’s beatmania series – hit the correct buttons on your PSP at the right time to complete the song. DJ Max Portable 2 offers a song selection of more than 60 tunes, and introduces a new gameplay mode – in Fever Mode, you fill up your Fever ability which, when activated, speeds up the notes and applies a 2x score multiplier. By filling up yet another Fever, you can activate it again for a 3x multiplier. No region protection – options for Korean, English and Japanese text.
If you’ve got the official Sony PSP GPS receiver then this is something you absolutely must have on your PSP. MapThis is an awesome GPS sat nav homebrew application, and although it’s a little fiddly to get working – it’s totally worth it. MapThis uses imagery from Google Maps so nearly every developed area on Earth is covered, it also gives you your current speed, direction, altitude, latitude and longitude. It’s worth getting a PSP GPS unit just to use it.
