SCEE game director, Tony Buckley, told CVG that developers need to be more creative with PSP game design in order to attract people to the portable.
why not tell the devs? Tell them to stop porting PS2 games to the PSP and make games just for the PSP.
only good game i played in the psp so far was mpo and god of war
This is very true, psp devs need to stop porting games and also keep on track with new games, I believe psp can deliver better graphics in order to make it a real portable plastaion(psp).
, plz stop porting ps2 games (fun on ps2 maybe) but not so great on psp. Especially with the new firmware uptade about full potential, hope devs cahnge their mind and thing of noe creative games. (Some games i loved Untold legends 2, burnout revenge, exit, metal gear portable ops)
the idea that they made Metal gear:po for the psp, so f''ked up but it need it to be done so sells would change a bit. stil sad for me.
I'm already gonna get one. Alien Syndrome, Manhunt 2, Silent Hill Origins, God of War, what more do you need.
...you need to make sure that all the games you listed are not just the poor mans cousin to the real deal. I use to have a PSP but got rid of it because most of the games are well, crap. I initially got one to play GT: Mobile and what ever happened to that??? The PSP is really a case of buyer beware. If cut down versions (in terms of graphics and gameplay) of PS2 games is your cup of tea then by all means, buy one. If you're like me and prefer the real deal then buy yourself an IPod for media playback (cause the PSP is mediocre at best in that regard) and stick with your PS2 or PS3.
There just needs to be more games tailored to the PSP, even if they are spin off titles.
I like how Sony really wants to take a new approach to the PSP. I have been wanting to see games only made for the PSP for some time and the future looks bright for that. There looks to be many more built in mind for the PSP now then there was in the past. I also think it would be cool to see more game developer's put Infrastructure in there games. Plus the idea of using your own music in the game would be great if more games would allow that.
I wish the PSP had a second anologue stick, it would add so much more to it's games.
@close second - Yah sure it might have mediocre graphics or whatever, but I have a 360 so I got that covered. I'm looking for select titles you can't get on any other console, like the PSP has and that's why I listed them. YA that's all that I need
Just getting more games out for the platform would probably help as well. How many more games does the DS have than the PSP and the PSP is older? Get some good titles out for the PSP if your still dedicated to it Sony.
One thing I have been thinking about is, having games the that use the PSP as a perrif. Like the up coming Aleins game from Sega. Use it as radar or commicater device where the game send you messages or video messages in game. Like in MGS4 when snake gets in game messages. That could be a oppition on/off for those that don't have them.
You can only be as creative as the tools allow you.
To be creative you have to shape the tools to your advantage.
Nothing stops developers from creating their own tools. It isn't limited toolsets that keep the PSP from having good games. It is the lack of creativity and the still (relatively) high price tag. No wonder devs aren't focusing on it. Its main competitor is outselling it due to being $40 cheaper, so that's where developers focus their time and money. I love my PSP, and I'm glad I won it in a drawing, because with the glut of mediocre software I would have never paid $169 for it. I would like to see Sony really take the PSP somewhere. The system has great capabilities, but Sony doesn't seem to be exploiting them. Release an awesome battery and trump up the system's multimedia capabilities. Give it MPG and WMA playback in addition to the lousy M4P or whatever it has to be now. Focus on a few AAA games. Give it an identity of its own like Nintendo does with their handhelds.
