Sony�s foray into the portable gaming world proved to be a success with the sleek black design of the PSP. Even if there was a limitation when it came to games and movies due to the UMD format used, there was no lack of hardcore Sony enthusiasts who couldn�t wait to get hold of the PSP. Indeed, the PSP has proven to be what I�d like to call the ultimate multimedia machine.
More than being a portable console for games, you could actually watch movies on the go � with awesome graphics I might add. Furthermore, you can listen to your favorite songs wherever you go. The PSP can also serve as an e-book reader and a picture viewer. You can even connect to the Internet through WiFi! So what more can you ask for?
Apparently, Sony saw a market for something totally different � appearance wise. Black is beautiful but for others, white is more appealing. Perhaps that is why they released the white PSP. I have to admit, it has a class of its own. Originally set up in Amsterdam, Sony�s billboard ad for the white PSP has irked a large number of people. It seems that the ad has some racist elements in it. It didn�t take long for the news to spread and as a result, organizations initiated a loud protest over the ad.
Sony has reiterated over and over again that the ad does not mean to degrade any race or color. As a spokesman said, the ad has �no other message or purpose� � aside from promoting the white PSP that is. Still, the ad has been pulled out to avoid anymore controversy.
So what do you think?
