Jennifer Allen of TheGameReviews gives her verdict on rumors of a new Twisted Metal game and a relaunch for Sony's flagging PSP Go.
The PSPGo needs all the luck it can get I think
It needs a fu*kin UMD slot and a cheaper price tag. Sony should have just replaced the older PSP3000 with the new PSPGo with UMD (same flip out design) and a cheaper or more or less same price tag (of the 3000). The price tag is ridiculous. If you go to a shop and see a Go for 250$ and see a PS3 bundle with 299$ what are you gonna buy? And on topic... I think a new Twisted Metal is gonna be announced this E3 for a late 2010 release. Something in my gut tells me it's gonna happen.
All it needs is a little luck and a UMD drive. And @ 1.2 Agreed 100%
i think its a 50% chance to be a TM game because that teaser mushroom cloud was actually a clown's face clown = sweet tooth http://300reviews.files.wor... but on the other hand that clown doesn't actually look like sweet tooth so it may not be a TM game and here your other 50%
Please.. Sony released the Go intentially to fail. Why? Simple to prove that DLC only is failure. Sony could have a successful go but they chose not to.. In order to not piss off the retailers. If Sony wanted the GO to be successfull all they had to do was price their digital games cheaper and since the go is cheaper to make price they could easily price it below the PSP3000..Heck even better below the DSI. But they obviously wanted the thing to be a failure.
I don't see much changing for the PSP GO. Seems like they made some misteps...
I wouldn't necessary count on a full blown relaunch in the PSP Go's near future, but an incremental price drop by the time E3 rolls around is not only likely, but something I expect. I have no hard evidence to back this up, but it's not unreasonable to think that it may drop $20-$30 by the summer.
They need to scrap this GO nonsense and just make a decent PSP 2 with a wretched analogue stick, put a load of PS2 games up on the PSN and watch the money roll in. There are a ton of decent RPGs that would hugely benefit from being on a portable platform in this way.
Good call on Sonic! (Dontcha just hate it when the situation changes right in the middle of writing an article? ':P)
this is nice, right now im playing twisted metal with ma bro on endurance hard mode lol only manage to kill 3 lol (on hard)
If Jaffe announces his game and it is not a TM title I will be very depressed like I was when I 1st read that Valkyria Chronicles 2 was a PSP game. I am still depressed over that actually.
I said it before and i'll say it again. The PSPGo needs to have phone tech built in. If they truly want to contend in the mobile market they need to one up the DSi and be a threat to the iPhone.
I am glad the Go doesnt have a UMD. It allows it to be thinner and more portable. Also, it sounded to me like TM is coming out. But who knows at this point. Just Jaffe.
Does anyone still care about the Go? I'll pick one up when it drops to £80, 90. Won't be long.
I think everyone who has been saying the PSPgo is a failure, is really missing the business move/trick that Sony has pretty blatantly been making just with the existence of the device alone.
the psp go needs a 4.5 inch screen and a umd drive and i will buy another one. my only problem now with the psp go is the screen being small
The screen really isn't that small, and honestly, that's the LAST thing it needs
i was @ bestbuy today and seen them side by side, and its like a night and day difference in the screen size.
