  1. Hi Kuldeep
    Well I love all the gadgets that you have mentioned but my favorite would definitely be PSP 3…

  2. Amar Ilindra says:

    I used Sony PSP last year. It was not a great deal. I’m looking for some alternative now. This guide helps me to decide one gadget. Thanks Kuldeep

  3. Hi Kuldeep, this is a really fun article! It’s nice to hear different perspectives about the popular consoles. I think you’ve got a great list here. PC Gaming is definitely hard to keep up with – and requires a certain amount of time and money to keeping your specs up to date. This adds to the convenience of consoles. I would agree and say that the slim versions of both the XBOX 360 and PS3 are huge improvements on the originals.

  4. I have Play station 3 and loving it till now but with time preferences changes so looking for some other source which can provide better gaming options with graphics.

  5. I am a proud owner of Sony PSP 3000 and i love it because i can carry it with me wherever i go it is with me.
