On Thursday the PlayStation Portable console will be launched in the United States. The new gaming device will sell for $250 and will include the PSP, a memory card, the Spider-Man 2 movie and a few other accessories.

The PSP has a wide range of features - you can play games, watch movies, listen to music and even make a wireless connection through its Wi-Fi capability.

Initially Sony has shipped 1 million PSP units to the US after selling more than 1.2 million units in Japan since it was launched in December. To be able to ship 1 million units to the US the company needed to postpone the European launch.

PSP games will cost $40 and movies will cost $20.
Many of GameStop's 1,800-plus stores will open at midnight on Wednesday to start selling the PSP. Experts say Nintendo has solidified its position as the hardware and software supplier for younger gamers, while the PSP will probably appeal to older, more affluent gamers.
