How to play a psp?

The Sony PSP system is a hand held gaming device based upon the Sony Playstation. The 'original' PSP was released in 2005 and has several incarnations - the PSP 1000, PSP 2000 (or Slim & Lite) and the PSP 3000.

Checking your equipment and setting up your PSP

After unboxing your PSP, the first, and one of the most important things to do is to charge the PSP's battery. To do this, open the cover on the back of the PSP and insert the battery before using the included wire to connect the system to the mains. It is important that the PSP is allowed to charge fully in the first
24 hours.
Secondly, make sure your PSP has the correct memory stick, as one is not always provided in the PSP box when initially purchased. The PSP uses a Sony Duo Memory stick, often used in music players and other Sony devices. Having a memory stick will allow you to save progress on your games and even download new games for the PSP through the Sony Playstation Network, as well as be able to play music and video on your PSP's speakers and screen.
To create these PSP media files you can connect your system to a home P.C using the PSP client, downloadable from the Sony website. Using this software you can also download PSP upgrades.
Once you have made sure your PSP is charged and fully updated, it is time to start playing.

Navigating Menus and Playing Games on your PSP

The Sony PSP uses UMD's, or Ultra Mini Disks, to play both games and DVD quality videos on the large screen. To insert a UMD, ensure the power to your PSP is off, and then locate the latch for the panel at the back of your PSP (it is located along the top of the device). Once the panel is open, insert the disk with the silver opening facing into the PSP. Close the door and turn the power back on. Upon closing the hatch, the PSP should automatically begin to run your selected game.
Hold your PSP so that your hands support the back of the device and your thumbs are able to access the various buttons and switches on the front.
While each game you may play require a different combination of buttons to use, there are often some similarities. The directional pad, on the left of the PSP is often used for navigation of menus etc, while the four buttons on the right hand side of the device are used to complete actions both in games and the PSP's own sub menus. The PSP is also equipped with a push sensitive 'joystick' also used for navigation within games.
