Neocrisis: The Current PSP Situation

Neocrisis writes: "There have been a lot of articles going on recently about how the PSP is dying, and some are already proclaiming it dead. Sure it's not selling as great as its competitors, but it is making a nice profit. Recently, the PSP has gotten a pretty nice boost in Japan and even outsold the DS for a few weeks, if not months. But why are most of these articles claiming the PSP dead? Ah yes, the games. Sure it has some great games, don't get me wrong, there are even some game which can be called console quality like Crisis Core and God of War, but what about the support the PSP is receiving from 3rd party?"

Without Games... PSP is pointless. The only game I have on my PSP is Final Fanasty and Im not a Huge FF Fan. There isn't any games to play like the DS. No Gutiar Hero, No Zombie Game, Not a lot of FPS. If Sony had a lot of 3rd party support... people would buy more PSP.

You should try Lumines I or II, Patapon, or Killzone Liberation. The library might not be overflowing like the DS, but there are plenty of good titles.

Loco Roco 1 and 2

Patapon 2 is coming in February. Pata Pata Pata Pon (>0.o)> pOn Pon Pata pOn (>0.o)>

Deadhead Fred and CRUSH were pretty good too.

Also, if you know what you're doing, you can play all PS1, SNES/NES, and Sega games on your PSP. I dont think I'll ever run out of games. Right now I'm playing CTR (crash team racing) and I'm about to play Megaman X4-X6. I am very happy with my PSP.

There's great games on PSP: Wipeout Pulse, GoW, Daxter, Patapon, LocoRoco, Star Ocean, FF7: Crisis Core, Brave Story, Jeanne D'Arc. I don't know WTF you guys are talking about 0_o

Plus a great lineup for 2009, Resistance Retribution, Kingdom Hearts, FF13 Agito, Parasite Eve 3rd Birthday, Star Ocean 2, and I'm sure a lot more.

Personally I'm hoping for some more QUALITY DS games, I haven't played a game on my DS in months (apart from Professor Layton), I've been waiting for a new Golden Sun, but that seems to be taking forever.

i used to own a PSP
i had one game on it and i mostly used it as a music player

poindat3626d ago

I use mine as a music player too. I do have 7 or 8 games, but I've gradually moved away from mobile gaming on the PSP, and the lack of games that I like is a reason why.

It will probably get a fair bit of use once Resistance Retribution hits, though.

jazzking20013626d ago

Rikitatsu3626d ago

I want japanese devs to concentrate more on PSP.
