Don't Miss: This How to find Fingerlings in Stock

Japanese Game Exporter Lik-Sang published over 100 MB of video coverage from the Sony PSP launch mania in Tokyo.

"This report involved running, bribing and stunts performing, not to mention our correspondents being on non-sleep for the last 36 hours, AND high on PSP. I (Tim Rogers) arrived at the Sun Kus convenient store a little after nine in the evening to meet my friend and trusted colleague FFD. Camera in tow, we guerrilla-stomped our way up to the Lam Tarra video shop nearest to Akihabara Station, past throngs of hardcore game fans waiting outside AsoBitCity, who would begin selling the system in more than twelve hours. "
Read and watch the report.

The most important quote from the Tim Rogers report is though the one about the PSP Battery Life:
" Just after midnight, the PSP's battery died. Just short of three hours, we're been using it. Two hours and forty-seven minutes, it lasted. With screen brightness and volume on maximum..."

So there we have it, but not quite. The battery was not fully charged in the report. As it turns out Sony PSP Battery life is highly dependend on what you do on the PSP. See this report on IGN for details. It is though in general lower compared to the 6-10 hours the Nintendo DS is providing on battery life.

Currently Sony PSP Value Packs auctions are at $650 on eBay. I guess the will sell for over $700.
