Sony: Devs now seeing key to PSP success

The PSP has been out since 2005, but developers are only now beginning to realise what makes a good game for PSP, admits the PSP marketing boss.

Talking of the recent good fortunes for PSP, Sony's John Koller said: "developers and publishers are now just starting to see what the keys to success are on the PSP.

"It's not like the console world at all, and it's something we've been preaching for a while," he added, pointing to key franchises such as God of War and Daxter appearing on the handheld in unique, handheld-specific incarnations.

The key is "making a unique game under that umbrella and making it creative and have it be something that you can't play on console," explained Koller.

" we can expect some pretty exciting stuff coming in the next three years."

The psp was ahead of its time, but in a good way. Considering it came out 3 years ago and still has 3 years left. I remember saying WOW when it first came out. Theres the biggest difference when you look at the ds compared to this

Ridge racers
Final fantasy VIIcc

I recently bought mine, and now I am going to be broke. Too many good games for it.

because it's both good and bad at the same time.

I've had a psp since launch, recently sold it for a psp slim. I love it but I have to say I wish there were more games that i liked for it. I find myself playing mostly ps1 games instead of psp games on it.
