Sony announced on February 3, 2005, that the PSP would go on sale in North America on March 24, 2005 in one configuration for a MSRP of US$249/CA$299.[34] Some expressed concern over the high price,[35] which was almost US$20 higher than the system's price in Japan and more than $100 higher than the recently launched Nintendo DS.[36] Despite the concerns, the PSP's North American launch was a success,[37][38] although reports two weeks later indicated that the system was not selling as well as expected despite Sony's claim that 500,000 units had been sold in the first two days.[39][40] is the 34th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar. ...

The PSP was originally to have a simultaneous PAL region and North American launch,[29] but on March 15, 2005, Sony announced that the PAL region launch would be delayed because of high demand for the console in Japan and North America.[41] A month later, on April 25, 2005, Sony announced that the PSP would launch in the PAL region on September 1, 2005 for 249/£179.[42] Sony defended the high price, which was nearly US$100 higher than in North America, by pointing out that North American consumers had to pay local sales taxes and that the GST was higher in the UK than the US.[43] Despite the high price, the console's PAL region launch was a resounding success, selling more than 185,000 units in the UK alone, more than doubling the previous first-day sales record of 87,000 units set by the Nintendo DS.[44] The system also enjoyed great success in other areas of the PAL region with more than 25,000 units preordered in Australia[45] and nearly one million units sold across Europe in the first week.[46] Television system by country The PAL region is a video game publication territory which covers Australia, New Zealand, and varying European countries. ... is the 74th day of the year (75th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Pages are opened in new tabs either when a website tries to open a link in a new window using the HTML command target="blank" or when the user selects a link and holds down "" rather than just tapping it.[111] Adobe Flash (previously called Shockwave Flash and Macromedia Flash) is a set of multimedia technologies developed and distributed by Adobe Systems and earlier by Macromedia. ...

Reception

The PSP received generally favorable reviews soon after launch and most reviewers cited similar strengths and weaknesses. CNET awarded the system an 8.1 out of 10 and praised the console's powerful hardware and its multimedia capabilities while lamenting the lack of a screen guard or a guard over the reading surface of UMD cartridges.[127] Engadget applauded the console's design, stating that "it is definitely one well-designed, slick little handheld".[128] PC World commended Sony's decision to include built-in Wi-fi capabilities while lamenting lack of a web browser at launch and the glare and smudges that resulted from the console's shiny exterior.[129] Most reviewers also praised the console's large and bright viewing screen and its audio and video playback capabilities.

Controversial advertising campaigns

  • Sony admitted in late 2005 to hiring graffiti artists to spray paint advertisements for the PSP in seven major U.S. cities including New York City, Philadelphia, and San Francisco. The mayor of Philadelphia has filed a cease and desist order and may file a criminal complaint. According to Sony, it is paying businesses and building owners for the right to graffiti their walls.[130]
  • In 2006, Sony ran a poster campaign in England. One of the poster designs with the slogan "Take a running jump here" was removed from a Manchester Piccadilly station tram platform due to concerns that it might encourage suicide.[131]
  • News spread on in July 2006 of a billboard advertisement released in the Netherlands which depicted a literally white colored woman holding a similarly literally black colored woman by the jaw, saying "PlayStation Portable White is coming." Some found this to be racially charged due to the portrayal of a white woman subjugating a black woman. Two other similar advertisements also existed, one had the two women facing each other on equal footing in fighting stances, while the other had the black woman in a dominant position on top of the white woman. The stated purpose of the advertisements was to contrast the white and black versions of its game console available for sale. These ads were never released in the rest of the world, and were pulled from the Netherlands after the controversy was raised.[132]
  • Sony came under scrutiny online in December 2006 for a guerrilla marketing campaign hoping to go viral, for the console, with advertisers masquerading as young bloggers who desperately wanted a PSP. The site was registered to and created by the St. Louis, Missouri advertising firm Zipatoni on behalf of Sony before it was taken down.[133] A mirror of the blog can be found here.
