Technology News Article | Reuters.com: "'The PlayStation Portable (PSP) has been solid but not spectacular. We believe that the PSP launch, while not the blow-out event expected, will be considered successful as retailers continue to sell through existing inventory levels,' McNealy said in a note."

My feeling is ... what's the rush? There is no "must have" game. Getting a free Spider Man 2 movie to show off your PSP display is cool but not overly compelling.

Over time, PSP will kick ass, since it is a complete media solution, and pretty cheap considering. The real test will be if Sony truly moves away from too much proprietary formatting and for instance it is pretty easy to put a TivoToGo movie onto a memory stick and watch it on a plane - without downloading all kinds of hacked and/or shady software.
