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."

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.

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.
