The Review Itself

The PSP screen is a very expensive thing to replace if it gets scratched and ill be honest a real gamer wouldnt use this screen as it gets in the way of the buttons, but for anyone with children then this could be just down your street.

The cover has a much better analogue stick which to be honest ive left on and installation of the stick was really easy, basically it just pulls off, so installation is very easy. The screen itself is made of a good clear rigid plastic and you have the areas cut out for the buttons and D-Pad, the device itself screws into the 2 holes on top of the PSP.

When fitted it doesnt hamper the screen and infact i was surprised by how good the picture came through even though it was covered in plastic, remember that keeping scratches off the screen is the main use of this device. Although after a few days dust did build up so a good screen cloth is essential.

The Analogue Controller was much improved with the one provided.

The cover doesnt seem to fit perfect meaning its a bit loose on the end where its not screwed down and the thickness of the plastic hampered gameplay especially on the side where the D-Pad and Analogue Controller sit, the down button gets in the way of the raised Controller.

This isnt for the serious gamer, but if you have children and you want the screen to last a much longer time then this is the accessorie to buy

Overall i would give it a 7./10 - One for Children
