Loved my PSP but I love my PS Vita even more...and it is about time Sony retired the PSP.
Shipments now ended worldwide: "Tokyo-based Sony said Tuesday that PSP shipments ended in North America in January, will end in Japan this month and later this year in Europe." http://news.yahoo.com/sony-...
Yup I know, since I read the article, hence the "about time Sony retired the PSP" ;))
Dear gribblegrunger your old avatar will be missed.
But I got bored with it.
I bought one for the first time last year. I still have like 20 games to beat for it, so I'll get my use out of it, but it's going to take some time.
This is the perfect scenario for Sony and developers. Sony will increase the chances of selling Vitas and PSP developers will still have reason to make PSP games if they so wished because there are 80+ million PSPs already sold and the Vita is backward compatible.
One of the best handheld i ever had Goodbye my old friend. May the force be with you...
The Midichlorians were 80 millions strong with this one ;))
Psp's dpad sucked. If it wasn't for that it would have been the best for hacking retro games. Street Fighter 2 is pointless but it's great for turn based rpgs and stuff that doesn't require precision dpad movement. Vita's dpad is much better.
Aaaaaaand iiiiiiiii wiiiillll alllllwaaaays looooove youuuuuu uwwww ohhh. One of the best systems I ever owned. Allowed me to mod it and play snatcher on setga cd and policenauts fan subbed. Just years of memories you will be missed.
Its been 10 years damm
The thing I miss most about the PSP is UMD movies. Much more reliable than streaming All the time.

very few games were comfortable to play on the psp. lots of people enjoyed it but i couldnt get use 2 haveing one analog.
I do not agree with you on that part because when games were made from the ground up with psp in mind, controls were tight and did not need a second nub.Unfortunately a lot of lazy publishers just gave us scaled down versions of a ps2 game.
