Zzap scans on PSP

Post by Bazza »

I just loaded the first issue of Zzap onto my PSP and I must say, its surprisingly readable (albeit a little small).

I use my PSP principally as an ebook reader of sorts and am loving it so far.

Excellent! I just saw my first PS in the flesh a couple of days ago, looks a fine machine, heard that with the earlier firmware version, you can load your own code from a flash card, which sounds very interesting.

So where's the photo of an issue of Zzap on a PSP then? That would look cool*

The PSP really seems to have polarised the market. About a third of people seem to really love it, whereas everyone else seems to despise it. I'll be interested to see what happens in the long run.

I was very dissapointed with the PSP when I had it in my hands last week.
VERY!
Much too easy to damage the screen, etc.

The DS is a different story altogether!
Innovative stuff, that touch screen. Brilliant games.
I think of buying one together with a Nintendog. Waf waf! :D

Well, mine was a father's day gift (a complete surprise at that too). My usage of the PSP is 99% ebook reading and it is surprisingly good for it too. (although a mini PDF reader would be nice ;) )

I would love to have played some of the emus on it (but then my fav arcade game "Elevator Action" isn't one of the working titles), but my PSP came with 1.52fw anyway.

But the PSP itself isn't the point.. its ZZAP64 scan on the PSP... cool

haha, yeah, although once I send my socks to the wash, I tend to never see them again or they come back with out their siblings (I somehow think my socks get directed to the kids drawers).. so socks are handy too ;)

here's a piccie (albeit a pretty bad one)

That's brilliant, Bazza.

But you're not helping my "No new, unnecessary toys" vow. :wink:

No, it's not ACE. Unless Bazza has that DVD as well ;)

Don't you have a magazine to put together or something, eh? :wink:

It looks pretty damn cool, it almost art really, the merging of old media on new tech. Those synergies are just bubbling over ;-)
