You Are Beautiful, No Matter What Colour Your PSP Is

Because, let’s face it, we all look pretty fudging fantastic at the helm of a controller; wind blowing through your hair, face caked with make-up to cover the imperfections, happy smiling faces gazing with wonder at the screen in front.

Actually, that’s not right is it? I’m more than likely grasping a controller with sweaty fingers and uttering obscenities from underneath a trail of crumbs, the only thing actually immersing me these days is the smell of pizza (this is also a lie, my oven is currently broken so there’s no pizza for me).

I recently had the opportunity to experience this wind-in-your-hair “hey gurlz play games too!” nonesense, when a good fun photo shoot took a turn for the even better when I whipped out a rather dazzling limited edition Final Fantasy VII 10th anniversary PSP and a black DS Lite.  Our photographer (who I imagine had been snapping different people in the same generic poses on bubble chairs, leaning on tables and lounging across sofas for the whole day) suddenly showed a big burst of enthusiasm and talked about some promotional shots he’d previously done for games companies, and then his head was ticking in the “let’s make a video game stock photo!” direction.

Me and my friend (who is also of the ‘gamer’ variety) were told to fight over the DS, hold our handhelds at arms length and stand in front of a fan on the ground, and the results were most amusing (albeit expensive, so I can’t show you all the images, such as the epic DS fight). It is at this point I chose to use my Photoshop powers for evil, rather than good, because pointing and laughing at games marketing towards women is an enjoyable pastime. Now I must go to paint my room pink, ride ponies, brush my hair, and dip the PSP in a tub of lilac paint.

    Is it wrong that I am actually thinking ‘ooo pretty’?

    OMG someone’s still using a PSP. 😀

    My handheld consoles rarely see any use anymore. PSP is used for video when travelling, although I did play Puzzle Quest on it in May during the MCM weekend.

    Cool pic.

    I also need to purchase Final Fantasy VII (10th anniversary) for PSP, before locating a crimson-haired compatriot to comment on Cloud’s stupid hair whilst in a wind tunnel!

    I demand to see the epic DS fight! It can’t be better than the one I had if we’re counting bruises.

    Emily, me thinks you should pass this onto Sony’s marketing department, they really could do with a hand.

    The poor PSP. Although I admit…mine doesn’t get all that much love…I cannot wait for the new Kingdom Hearts game, and I’m yet to complete Dissdia
