Just release PSP2 with touch screen, no one cares about PSP anymore.

"The Best is Yet to Come" was a great song

Deuce Bigalow3107d ago

The best is yet to come for the 2 dudes who give a damn about this useless piece of technology.

If there is one thing that companies in gaming should have learned by now is that having or not having a head start can make a difference in the mindshare of consumers but also very importantly mindshare of developers.

If Sony wants to stay in the handheld gaming business, they have to release a new PSP at the same time as the new DS.

PSP....(Sigh)

What could have been.

Rock Bottom3107d ago

I don't know about you guys, but, for most RPG fans, the PSP and the DS have offered a much better JRPG lineup than PS3/360/Wii this generation.

IdleLeeSiuLung3107d ago

Does this mean that PSP2 is not in sight.... since the PSP in Sony's mind hasn't reached it's prime.

what vibrant lineup in 2010 ?????

serously ive looked about and other than Modnation Racers and the new MGS game there is nothing at all there.
PSP had an awesome year in 2009 with LBP PSP, Motorstorm AE, Gran Turismo, F1 2009 but this year there is nothing.

personally last year was the best year in the PSP`s lifecycle and it looks like it was just a flash in the pan to sell PSP Go units.

all i can say is roll on the PSP 2.

besides Modnation and Metal Gear Solid im getting Fat Princess and Valkyria Chronicles 2 , already got Socom Fireteam Bravo 3 and Patchwork Heroes but i would wait for E3 to see the fall line up before i judge if there is nothing else i want to play on the little system , last year definitely was great for me , i got Resistance Retribution , Motorstorm Arctic Edge , Gran Turismo , Little Big Planet , Jack and Daxter The Lost Frontier , Pixeljunk Monsters Deluxe , Patapon 2 and Savage Moon , hope to see big games coming out for the little system at E3 ( hopefully Uncharted, inFAMOUS , Warhawk , another God of War game , another Killzone game and that would be equally if not more great than last year line up lol )

Redempteur3107d ago

gran turismo this year

at least mod nation racers too .

AND e3 will tell us more

FragGen3107d ago (Edited 3107d ago )

SOCOM FTB3 completely kicks ass and was released last month.
The Dante's Inferno PSP version from just a couple of weeks ago is freaking ASTOUNDING, nearly as good as the system selling GOW title, but no one even bothered to review it.

People are in such a rush to dismiss the PSP that they simply say "no software" without even bothering to stay informed.

The PSP has a hellaciously good software library that's been built up over the last 5 years and Sony continues to encourage devs and releases their own premium/sponsored stuff.

I really enjoy my PSP, more so than any other portable device I've ever used... it's such a shame to think there are people who would otherwise enjoy it similarly but have written it off due to all the anti-hype on the net.

It's a multimedia powerhouse, too... just a great, great, piece of tech. Love it to bits.

kwyjibo3107d ago

How can anyone say that with a straight face?

ThanatosDMC3107d ago

But they did. You can play movies, music, web browse, etc.

For those that modded their PSPs you can even read PDF files and other files.

Now we even expect the PSP2 to at least do most of the stuff the PS3 can do... i know i am. Damn thing better play youtube videos like my itouch.

ExPresident3107d ago

The PSP does a lot of things, and while it may not do any of them better then anything else out there it does them very well, and it does have very good games.

But people who are hating on the system or say Sony shouldn't bother are just idiots. Competition promotes better products for us, the consumers, and without the PSP or other handheld advancements before it and what will come after it we'd be stuck with the original Gameboy, great in its day but a paperweight at best now.

While I think Sony's plans with PSP and their sales strategy is poor they do have a lot of potential with the unit itself, again Sony holding Sony back.

Corrwin3107d ago

Hopefully it'll make the puddle jump.

ImmortalLegend3107d ago

I was happy with the graphics and that's the main reason I bought the PSP (I was like 14 lol) and now I know graphics can only take you so far. As time went on I started to dislike it and have even been playing more games on my iPod Touch than the PSP lol. I'm not a huge fan of handheld gaming anyways, but I think that's saying something.
