It's amazing how they can fit such a large amount of space onto a tiny-a** device! Keep up the good work Datel!

I love how Datel does pretty much everything they do right. Its so good to have a good product from a third party company. PS, whats second party?

iPirate: I believe that the user at hand is the "second party". I agree this sounds like a great idea but it still is alot of money to come up with. Like everything else, they'll come down before the holidays.

odreian78, search for the 4GB Hard Drive for PSP Solus Pack. It should be available for around $149. The Hard Drive package you linked includes the X2 battery, which differs from the version announced recently.

Now only if the PSP had enough worth while games to make it worth the 200$ for it *L*

Might just have to go and buy that, I only have a 512 stick in there right now so I need to upgrade.

The HDD is a battery burner. If you play near outlets it is a good deal. The fact is they are trying to burn off excess invetory of their 4gb HDD before the 4gb Sandisc pro duos come out. They are going to be about 250 a piece, but will not require then battery to operate a hdd. Rumor has it as well that the PSP is limited currently to a 4gb stick. So well have to see in the future, but my opinion about this topic for now is avoid this product, but mem cards instead. 2GB is only like 140 or so right now Ludikhris

PSP is limited to 4 GB.
