Niko Silvester is a former Lifewire writer who wrote extensively about Sony's PlayStation Portable for more than six years. Silvester's game reviews have appeared on the Electric Playground and Gamesmania websites. When she's not writing about portable gaming devices, she's almost certain to be found mashing buttons on one of her gaming machines.
