The PSP 3000: Is it Worth Buying now?

312w ago - When the PSP first launched in North America on March 24, 2005, it revolutionized portable media forever with its ability to play videos, music and display pictures all while being a powerful gaming machine.

Since then, it gained even more functionality with a built-in Web browser, Skype functionality and connectivity with the Playstation 3. When the Playstation Portable (PSP) 2000 or 'Lite' model was released, it had all the quirks of the original model but answered consumer demands with the additional Video-Out socket which allows users to output video to any progressive television.

At the Leipzig Games Convention, Sony officially announced the newest chapter in the life of the PSP by revealing the PSP 3000 (or PSP "Brite", as dubbed in the blogosphere). The PSP Brite is just as thick, weighs the same and even has the same battery life as its predecessor, the PSP Lite. This newer model, however, consists of many ergonomic and aesthetic changes while offering a slew of new functionality features.

The greatest and most notable change in the PSP Brite is the upgraded screen. Sony recognized that the glare made it nearly impossible to view the screen in the outdoors or well lit environments, so they have integrated their new anti-reflective technology. The addition of this new technology should...

Project Origin is now F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin by Monolith

312w ago - It's official. Monolith Productions' Project Origin will no longer be a "spiritual successful" to their own hit shooter F.E.A.R. Instead, it's now a full-blown sequel.

F.E.A.R. fans out there will probably remember that Sierra retained ownership of the F.E.A.R. name while Monolith was left with the rights to the whole F.E.A.R. universe after the latter was acquired by Warner Bros.

This whole situation resulted in the announcement of two F.E.A.R. follow-ups: a "spiritual successor" from Monolith and an "official" sequel Sierra was supposed to make with another developer. For their project, Monolith held a naming contest, where "Project Origin" won out.

Flash forward to 2008. After Sierra's parent company Vivendi merged with Activision, Sierra had to face the cancellation of most of its upcoming games. Warner Bros. and Monolith weren't about to let the opportunity pass by, and so they took the chance to re-acquire the F.E.A.R. brand.

So, what does this leave us with? F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin.

The game's also finally been given a release date: February 10, 2009. F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin will be available on PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3.
