PSP, Not quite dead yet

With the Nintendo DS dominating the market, the Sony PSP is not looking so good.
But the functionality of PSP are still amazing. (PSP)

How well has Peace Walker sold? I know it didn't chart in America on NPD. In the end it's all don't to software, I love my PSP though more than my DS. The DS has few titles that appeal to me but the PSP is my go to handheld device for almost anything.

I saw a little kid in Gamestop last week who didn't think the PSP was dead. He was like 6-8 years old marching around Gamestop like Hitler with a PSP in his right hand screaming "P-S-P, YEA!". Funnest shit I've seen in Gamestop in a long time.

I personally haven't been this excited for upcoming PSP titles in a long time.

To me the PSP is far from dead.

As far as I'm concerned, the PSP is the only worthy handheld on the market, and has been for years. The 3DS is the first handheld to draw my eye away, and even then I'm not so sure.

Gran Turismo and Peace Walker FTW

um,
the PSP has been on the market for over 5 years now.

it's lived a full life cycle, and if it dies now, it's nothing out of the ordinary.

it's had a successful run, and it did what many people thought was impossible: it managed to become a viable handheld in a market completely DOMINATED by Nintendo.

EVERY handheld that has come up against a Nintendo handheld has failed.

do you know what the highest selling competition next to the Game Boy line was?

the Game Gear at 8 million units sold.

you know how much the PSP has sold in it's life cycle? over 40 million units.

the Atari Lynx, Neo Geo Pocket, Wonder Swan, etc, etc, have barely scratched the 2 million unit mark, and people are still so quick to rain on the PSP, when it's been a fantastic success.

the piracy is horribly unfortunate, but that doesn't take away the fact that the PSP has done wonderfully as a handheld competitor to the Nintendo handhelds.

i personally think that any real fan of handhelds would have a DS AND a PSP. ironically, i don't have a DS (funds are too tight for me to pick one up sadly), but i'd love to get one one day. i think the DS and PSP compliment each other and offer one of the best lineups in handheld gaming together. they both accomplish things the other can not, and that's awesome.

developers have still been supporting the PSP with quality games, so that's always a good thing.

considering that this is Sony's first foray into the handheld market, i can see them not repeating the same mistakes with the PSP2. i imagine a more locked down system with a LOT of effort spent on cutting down on piracy. it's bound to happen eventually, but i think what they want to do is make it so it won't be hacked so quickly like the PSP was.
