Oh my am I ever old. I had no idea what PSP represented. I know the iPhone and I own an LG smart phone. Would love to own an iPad or maybe even a kindle. But a PSP, blank.
One of my great nephews was rambling on about the newest psp game and I really had no clue what he was trying to tell me. Eyes fixed on his while shaking my head yes, I leaned toward my niece and whispered, what is he saying?
A gaming machine, made by Sony. A PlayStation Portable.
Oh you mean something a game boy right?
Well not exactly but that is the idea anyway.
How embarrassing, especially since we have a PS2 gaming system in the next room! It is quite remarkable how we parents are very quickly removed from the latest children gadgets and popular toy scene as rapidly as they grow up. I am by no means technologically challenged but certainly out of the child bearing fun loop I suppose. Has this happened to you?

PS2 in the next room? now is that the slim, or the “old – bulky – version”? Do you know that there’s been a PS3 that has been out for some time 🙂 Even a PS3 Slim (and and xbox360 slim as well, but that’s from Microsoft).
I’m lucky because I’m a guy, and as many, I still haven’t grown out of my teenage mentality (despite being over 30), and started buying retro gaming platforms (via ebay) that I grew up with (SEGA MegaDrive, YOU ROCK!).
I also found out that you can buy retro games on the Nintendo Wii (via virtual console) and have already purchased the games that didn’t have save features – like Kid Chameleon where I remember having played over 12 hours and HAD to stop – where you can now save…
AAAAAAAnyway, yes PSP are just like a gameboy, but until they release Tetris (MOST.ADDICTIVE.GAME.EVER.) for it, I am not even considere it 🙂
Yes at least the PS2 is a slim one! And I do agree Tetris was a most addicting game. I used to play it when the boys went to bed! Hubby got so sick of me taking the game boys, it he bought the game for me to use in the Nintendo!
