PSP on TV Website Launched

Psp-on-tv-header

PSP on TV is another product for the PSP, designed for viewing your PSP screen on a TV. In other words, whatever is on your PSP?s screen will be on your TV. They have just released their official website you can read more about [here].

There is also another product not yet released by Team Xtender named PSP2TV which will also allow your PSP screen to be on a TV instead of the PSP.

Ok, now I?m going to be unbiased about this because I don?t own a TV and it really affects me either way (just moved houses) between the two companies? products. What is fun to watch are the two companies talk between each other though. For example, pspontv.com?s press release states:

?The PSP-ON-TV product does not void Sony’s warranty or any other 3rd party ‘Extended Warranty’, which retailers such as Best Buy offer to their customers. “Beware of other ‘copy-cat’ products that may come out, because they may force you to open your valuable PSP and void the warranty!”, warns the company’s website.?

While Team Xtender?s website talks about a ?PSP2TV? like device:

?Several websites have picked up on the news that a Taiwanese manufacturer is hard at work on magical mirror PSP2TV like device, this supposed competition will not even come close to the quality of PSP2TV. Yes, we understand you will not have to open up the PSP to clip on the magic mirrors but remember this their whole product relies on mirrors. That means, whatever is actually displayed on the LCD screen will be mirrored to your TV. Mirrored images will include, finger prints, scratches and all the other dust particles and grime that may be loitering on your PSP LCD screen. One actually begins to wonder whether this Taiwanese toy would be more suitable for crime scene investigators rather than hardcore PSP Gamers??

This reminds me of the console war going on now and let?s face it: they both want our money. The major difference however is that PSPonTV does just what it says and puts the image on your TV, while PSP2TV allows the user to hook up via S-video, external speakers (usually on your TV or amplifier) and as well as a PlayStation 2 Dual Shock controller. The downsides are what you make of them for both products. For the PSP2TV you will lose your PSP warranty, but will gain S-video, and the use of a PS2 controller, but with the PSPonTV you will keep your warranty and (from what I can tell) still have to use your PSP?s controller. Let?s take a look at the products, on the Left is PSPonTV and the Right is PSP2TV.

From the pictures you can see the difference in size (except that PSP2TV mounts on the back of the PSP.) For the user it would depend on how you plan to use it. I myself like the idea of using a separate PS2 controller with PSP2TV, because the PSP controller and I don?t get along too well after long periods of playing games. However for viewing movies alone or not being bothered by the extra weight of the PSP, PSPonTV would be the way to go. If you?re just concerned about the price, Lik-sang has the following prices:

PSP2TV from Lik-sang.com for US$119.99 [here].
PSPonTV from Lik-sang.com for US$119.99 [here]. (This price may still not be final due to PSPonTV?s website claiming $US99.99 retail price.) Psp-on-tv-header
