More PSP stuff

I just ordered an FM transmitter for my PSP. I do use my PSP in my car to listen to MP3's quite a bit. Even with headphones it's hard to hear it while drivng highway speeds. There's some mixed views about this product but overall it seems like most people are pretty happy with it so I figure I'll buy one and give it a shot. After shipping and everything it was $9, not to bad. I'm really getting into my PSP again. I still need to get that God of War game, I can't believe I still don't have it.

PSP is one of those systems that I love it for all its features but I'm just not to happy with the games. I'd be crazy about it if the Metal Gear Solid games were handled better. The controlls are ass. When Snake Eater came out people bitched about the lack of camera control, I dealt with it but agreed that a camera control would help. Now with two analog sticks that makes a ton of sense. They went and used the same engine on the PSP which has one analog nub which sucks, real hard. They should have used the original Snake Eater engine and planned the game to use that accordingly for the PSP game as you have no analog sticks let alone two. Using the D pad to move your guy then a nub on the same side to control the camera at the same time is impossible. If there were two nubs or the nub was on the right side it might have worked slightly better but meh. It would have been better to develop the game using the older static overhead camera and planning the level design around that concept.

Anyway I've been dicking around with Metal Gear Solid Portable Ops+ again. I never unlocked Raiden, something I really want to do. I just want to run around as Raiden with the sword and sword things up. Actually I wish the PS3 had an option UMD drive. So you could play PSP games with a dual shock controller. Think along the lines of a Gameboy Player or Super Gameboy. You could just plug in a UMD drive into one of the USB ports. Or they could make the next PSP output to a TV and make it compatable with the Dual Shock 3. That should be entirely possible. I play my handhelds at home the most anyway. The only time I play them away from my bed room is when I'm taking a shit, and I'm sure that's true for most people.
