PSP Promotions

If you have been watching the ads for PSP (PlayStation Portable - The new handheld Video Game by Sony) on TV and online, then most of you would feel the same way I do, which is completely amazed! The ads are too good and the music complements it extremely well, and is very infectious. For the inquisitive minds, the song is called "Take Me Out" by Franz Ferdinand. For a video of the complete song go here, and for the lyrics, go here. And finally for the link of the kick-ass PSP promotion videos (or ads), go here.

There used to be a time, when I used to regularly check out Launch's site (now acquired by Yahoo) for the top videos to keep track of the English songs. I don't do that anymore, maybe I should, to keep up with the stinking number of good songs nowadays.

PS: Don't get me wrong, I DONT like the PlayStation (although PSP is a whole different video game console, it's a handheld)! XBOX rules and XBOX 360 or Xenon or whatever they are going to call the next-gen Xbox, will rock and may have a chance to be No.1, according to Gates!

I tested a PSP in a local GameSpot and it rocks big time. The price tag and lack of quality preowned affordable games is the only drawback.
I am waiting for PS3 or money to own a PSP. Xbox is cool but I am not for all things Microsoft, simply because they stifle innovation and competition wherever they go. Once MS becomes the leader in a segment, innovation dies a painful death.

The Last Blogger,
Yeah, the graphics and the stereo is awesome! Another thing it doesnt have is the Hard disk. A hard disk would make it just perfect. I was also that way earlier, but they are there almost everywhere. It's pretty difficult to ignore them nowadays.

Hey hey TG ... just because I don't check your blogs frequently :) Xbox doesn't rule.

There are reasons a PS2 is a PS2.

Some times, the imitation (read as Xbox) is better than the original.

If you go back in time to Atari days, there were days where we spent whole days on it escaping boring home works. Then came other game consoles Game Cubes, Playstations, Xbox etc. and every year a new one shows up and is better than the previous one.

Do note that Xbox was just one of those later ones and when the first PS2s came in we were still talking Mhz on processing unlike the Ghz during Xbox days. I guess it's easy to improve than invent.

Again -- you know me -- I am Microsoft hater anyways :)
PS: This post is being posted from a Apple

What's my point? Xbox might be faster today but won't last that way forever.

So you do agree that Xbox is better? There ends th discussion then :-)
I really agree with you, dont disagree with anything you say, improving on things is much easier than innovating. Take for instance, innovation in cell phone and the market leader in it - aren't they two different companies? Take the same thing for Switching or landline telephone companies, innovators are not always the leaders.
The real fight will be with Xbox 360 and PS3, which is due out this month, let's see who can lead the race, now that the playing field is being levelled (borrowing a phrase from Nandan Nilekeni, CEO of Infosys).
