6 reasons iPhone 4 fails compared to PSP
The iPhone 4 is trendy, fashionable, ubiquitous – but it’s still not as good as a trusty PSP in your hand. Read on for our six reasons why.
Yes, the iPhone 4 is a great piece of kit – valuable, desirable and with function to match the beautiful form. But if you think it’s better than the PSP then you’re clearly a bit mental in the head, as well as sorely deluded. Why? Well isn’t it obvious? No? Okay then, read on:
Touchscreen? More like LAMEscreen. Hah, take that! The inaccuracy of touch-based controls is something that needs to be sorted out by those with the technological know-how. While we wait for them to fix the issues, we’ll just stick with our bebuttoned PSP. Press X to win!
Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker
The iPhone 4 has some good games, but mainly they’re a bunch of trash – throwaway nonsense that you would never pay over 49p for (which is why it’s lucky they’re 49p). But real games? Fagedabahdit. The PSP has Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. It’s one of the best handheld games ever made and one of the best games of recent times. Screw you, iPhone 4.
Less likely to get mugged
PSPs aren’t as desirable to the mass market as the iPhone 4 is – they’re not as in-demand and they’re not at the forefront of the public’s mind. Hence, when muggers go out on a mugging shift, they aren’t usually looking for PSPs. In fact, we have anecdotal evidence of a mugger turning down the opportunity to steal a PSP, as it wasn’t what they were looking for. Hence, your purchase is safe.
The iPhone 4 is a phone, meaning most of the time you need to take out a contract in order to own one. This is a commitment that many of us fear with all our hearts – 18 whole months in the company of just one phone?! Madness! Which is why the PSP wins this round too – you buy it, it’s yours. No mucking about, no expectation to pay more money. It’s just yours.
Can the iPhone 4 use UMDs? Can it hell. Another fine victory for the PSP.
Umm… it’s (maybe) prettier (to some people)
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and some people think the PSP is a beautiful piece of kit. Some even think it’s better looking than the iPhone 4. Therefore: the PSP is better looking than the iPhone 4, and wins this final round. It’s a whitewash.
It’s a clean sweep, a clean sheet and a drubbing all wrapped up in one big pile of victory. 6-0 to the PSP, 0-6 against the iPhone 4. iPhone 4 loses, PSP wins. Deal with it.
