  PlayStation Portable
The same kinds of mixed uses for devices are flourishing for portable media devices as well: not only portable audio and now video players, but other kinds of devices that also serve as media players, including portable gaming systems, PDAs, and even mobile phones.
Another approach is to open up the portable device to support a wider range of formats and functionality, but therefore requiring a more custom interface and more sophisticated user.
Portable gaming systems may seem like a strange choice for serving as a portable media player, but today's platforms are certainly powerful enough, and the addition of removable solid state memory for tasks like saving game state then provides the ability to store and display other media files.

 First Impressions - PlayStation Portable // PSP /// Eurogamer
Only now has Sony - the great pioneer of portable audio - felt the time is right to dip its not inconsiderable toes into this market, and many have been almost desperate to see it fail.
The unit's clearly technically capable of wowing a generation of PlayStation gamers into making a purchase, and Sony knows it only needs to tempt a fraction of its overall audience to make a success out of the system.
It remains to be seen how important the multimedia functions will be to the system, and it certainly doesn't help that Sony has thrown up arbitrary boundaries by tying the unit to Memory Stick Duo (as opposed to the type used in its digital cameras, frustratingly).

Sony's PlayStation Portable may ultimately live up to company promises of a "Walkman for the 21st century" that revolutionizes entertainment, but that's not going to happen next week.

The device is called the PlayStation Portable (PSP), and in addition to playing games of PS2 graphical quality, it can play music and movies (downloaded or via disc) and surf the Web.
The screen is flanked by controls that will be immediately recognizable to fans of past PlayStations: the directional keypad is to the left of the screen, and the familiar square, triangle, circle, and X buttons are to the right.
But in the next breath, they claim that it can do so much more, billing it as "the first truly integrated portable entertainment system." Both statements are, in fact, true, and suffice it to say that as a portable gaming device, particularly from a graphics standpoint, the PSP is unparalleled.

The PSP's inputs are geared for gaming rather than multimedia, with two shoulder buttons (triggers), the iconic PlayStation face buttons start and select buttons, a digital 4-directional pad, and an analog input.
There is also a row of secondary controls along the underside of the screen, for controlling volume, music settings (either switching the audio off and on in games or selecting different equalizer presets in the OS), screen brightness, accessing the system's main menu, as well as the standard Start and Select buttons.
The graphics and audio capabilities of the PSP lie somewhere between those of the original PlayStation and the PlayStation 2.
