I don't think it'll be a huge PSP seller. But the hardcore MGS fans will do whatever they can to get their hands on it.

If Metal Gear fans care enough to play Peace Walker I think they should care enough to buy a PSP as well. If this scenario occurs, mark my words, Peace Walker will move PSP units.

I bought a PSP for this game. Well not just this game, but this is the one that pushed me over the edge.

The last portable I had before this was my GameBoy Color.

I love my PSP now. I download most of my games through PSN and it's great to have such a large selection of games when I'm out on the go. The PSP really doesn't get enough credit.

The only problem is trying to find time to play it between my PS3 and 360.

They better drop PSP Go's price before this one releases.

"Sean Eyestone believes the western Metal Gear Solid fans that haven’t purchased a PSP yet will do so once Peace Walker is released"

^^^Yep. I don't have a PSP yet, and Peace Walker is the game that's really push me overboard. I wanted to get one for Chains of Olympus, and I never got around to buying one... but I am now.

I'm probably going to wait until E3 before I make the decision to buy a PSP, because if a PSP2 is announced and it's backwards compatible with PSP games, I might just wait until the PSP2 comes out... I've just gotta have Peace Walker.

Get one now and play Metal Gear Portable Ops - it's an excellent game as well. And you won't regret buying Chains of Olympus either

EDIT: For some reason I strongly doubt that PSP2 will be BC.

After the demo....
I'm definitely buying it. It's not perfect, due to some strange design decisions (not being able to crawl in a Metal Gear game???) but it's got my money.

It will be a popular game, but sadly won't generate as much revenue, due to PSP piracy.

I think I'll buy a second hand PSP for this and then sell it on when i'm done. I've got no interest in handhelds but i'm a MGS fan.

I am playing my PSP more than my PS3 atm, its so convenient and I just bought a bunch of great games for it. Peace Walker is looking good, cant wait.

Sony better advertise the crap out of it; it's probably the most important PSP game since...well, what was the last big seller?
