The website granted Sony’s handheld an impressive 9.5/10, praising it for the fact it “looks cool”, is easy to set up, is not too big and has a bright, clear screen. It was criticised, however, for the cost of the games, the lack of extras out of the box, the poor sound quality and, strangely, how “addictive” it can be.
The site chose the Xbox 360 as its second top pick, owing mainly to the fact that it can be bought for as little as £120. Nintendo’s Wii and DS Lite came third and fourth respectively, with Sony’s original ‘fat’ PSP claiming fifth.
PS3 was seventh in the rankings having come under criticism for its high price. The site said of the machine: “Most people rate the PS3 as relatively poor value for money.”
