26. Messengers (AIM, MSN, Yahoo)
It might not be the most elegant solution around, but PSP owners can actually message buddy list friends on AIM, MSN or Yahoo. The keyboard interface leaves much to be desired, but it's an excellent back-up solution when you're away from your computer, and all you have is your PSP. Our favorite is PSP Pro-Messenger (pictured, above). The great thing about this? You don't need homebrew, either. It works with your PSP internet browser.
Did you know that PSP is home to some really cheap games? The Greatest Hits collection of $20 games includes hits such as Daxter, Syphon Filter, Liberty City Stories, Wipeout Pure, and more. But, that's not all! A report compiled in April showed that 33% of PSP games are available for under $25.
The power to play PS2-quality games, watch movies, listen to music, and surf the web ... for only $170? Sure, it costs more than a GBA or Nintendo DS, but it's still an incredible value for the sheer amount of technology you're receiving.
Fans have taken it upon themselves to create web-based portals. They work through the PSP internet browser, and offer users media options, internet links, and other PSP-friendly stuff from one place. There's a lot to choose from. One that caught our attention: X5 Resurrection (pictured, above). Do you think we should make our own PSP Fanboy-branded portal?
30. Free VoIP
Sony of Europe has partnered up with BT to offer free VoIP calls for British PSP owners. It looks impressive ... and we're pretty sure that Sony's going to partner up with other providers for the US as well. With this, your PSP will be able to make phone calls from wherever you find a wi-fi connection. Not bad, huh?
