The PSP, or PlayStation Portable, is a popular handheld gaming device produced by Sony, the makers of the Playstation gaming systems. Designed to be a competitor to the Nintendo DS, the PSP was released in December 2004 in Japan, March 2005 in the United States, and September 2005 in Europe.
PSP games come in a wide variety, supported on both optical discs called UMDs (Universal Media Discs) and flash memory (internal and via memory sticks). A great deal of the PlayStation Portable game library is now supported by the PlayStation Network (PSN), a downloadable game store, many of which have been developed by independent gaming studios. As the system has gained popularity, many games have been released as PSP exclusives.
