PSP Retrospective: Ten-ish Years of Living in the Shadow of Hype—Part 1

oprainfall’s Karli Winata writes:

“When I first heard the news of the PSP being discontinued this year, I instinctively looked over to my red God of War PSP quietly sitting on the shelf, plugged into the wall. For over six years, I’ve been ‘working’ on finishing Brave Story: New Traveler. I made strong headway back in 2010 or so, but then I plugged it into the wall to let it charge. There it sat for over four years. I told myself I’d get back to it eventually. Every so often, the little orange charge light would come on, reminding me that it’s still there. Waiting.

“I thought back on the history of the device, and only one emotion ever comes up: disappointment. But why? The system was around for almost, just almost, a decade. How can a system with that lifespan be thought of as a failure? I think I know why.” (PSP, Sony, Sony Computer Entertainment)
