The PSP was released in 2005, and since then it has become quite lackluster. But with new hit games coming around the corner for the handheld, this little machine could stay alive for a while longer.
and i have had it for 2 years. God of War, FF7:crisis core, Fight night, R&C size matters. If it wasn't for homebrew i would sold it already. Homebrew makes it the greatest thing out though
Bought one for my kid and another for me remote plays great and we can take turns playing the kids while were driving. Not to mention movies and stuff. Dunno why theres always this doom and gloom on it its a great product and selling well. Tho I got ta say they coulda made it a little bigger n added another stick...
Realize the true potential of this little beauty as a media machine and know that games are not the only thing going for it.
a long while ago as there was a total lack of games on it for me, but i am also now looking to get one again. it seems as tho a risk is being taken on the little system now and for me its paying off. i mean i recently started going through the metal gear series in chronolgical order meaning i played 3 first. i wana carry on but i cant til i get another psp and complete portable ops lol. granted i hav already completed 1 and 2. but before i get to those again i have recently aquired all of the original metal gears for the MSX2, nes and game boy so this cud take a while lol. there also little beauties like ff7:CC, FF1,FF2 and GOW that are suddenly making the psp seem like a more attractive proposition.
What's with all this talk about "staying alive?" The format has sold over 32 million units. It's not like the Atari Lynx or GameGear here folks.
the idiots dont look at the history books. thats why i dont read these stupid articles.
I think the Remote play feature is the coolest thing about the PSP.Maybe any game system ever.
I love my PSP. From Beats to Silent Hill to Patapon to Remote Play to Starbucks browsing the the web with some white chocolate mocha, it is a fantastic handheld. I've been reading it was doomed and dying since 2005. It isn't going anywhere.
I would've sold it already, but I'll wait for Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy Dissidia and the rumored Persona game.
I play Darkstalkers, HSG, and that's about it right now. But I can watch movies and tv on it. The PSP isn't going anywhere, it's no Game Gear. RIP Game Gear, my first gaming device.
I bought the original PSP at launch and I fell in love with it.I never had a handheld that can do so many things in one.I sold it last year and upgraded to a Ice Silver PSP I currently own.I use to play games on it but lost interest after I bought a Xbox 360.Now I mostly use it for the web since I get free wifi at my house.I'll listen to music or watch videos on it once in a while but I mostly use my iphone for that.I still love it but as far as games go I just dont have that urge anymore.
How about how the N4G headline bears little resemblance to the story in the article - thinking about working in journalism drdistracto707? Ad as for the PSP, it's sold more than the N64, the GC and the Xbox, and sells better than the 360 in the US - not exactly just staying alive material. And as a user, the thing rocks - MGS Portable Ops, R&C, the SOCOM games, Wipeout, GoW, FFVII:CC - and that's without the multimedia side. It may not get the slew of games the 360 and the PS3 does, but when I look at 'game' games (rather than brain training and teach yourself Kanji), I prefer the releases on the PSP over the DS (which isn't knocking the DS - that's also a great piece of kit)
I dont think ive turned my psp on for about a year, lol.
The only games I play are FFT & that about it lol! FF7 became very repettive w/ a sad enging I already exspected! I do look forwards to Kingdom Hearts & Dissidia Final Fantasy for the psp! Worth the Wait!
