How I overcame my PSP ignorance and learned to love a dead system

Bitmob.com: "I’m probably a little late here.

The PlayStation Portable was released over seven years ago here in the US, the Vita is coming up on its first anniversary, and here I am sitting in my chair and playing the original PSP 1000 for the first time. You could say I missed the system’s bandwagon (not to mention its entire life cycle), but that hasn’t stopped me.

You see, I’ve been on a mission to learn about gaming history. Popular franchises and games, consoles, arcades, and the PC are all on my list, but the PSP was next. Now, growing up on Nintendo and eventually switching over to Microsoft’s Xbox 360, I have only played a Sony system twice. Before now, I didn’t hold “that other Japanese company” in very high esteem. I mean, it’s not like they’ve done anything else important, right?" (PSP)

The PSP is an amazing system. Still play mine on a regular basis.

Dead?

Well, I guess if a system that's sold 70 million units and still has games coming out for it all these years later is "dead," I can understand how the Vita, which just came out and has a slew of games to play, is considered dead.

I find games in second hand shops for £$€1-5 all the time, and I don't mind my kids having a go on it, it is a well-built bit of kit.
