Gamersmint : Fitting since it’s the last year for the console too. Hirokazu Hamamura, President, Enterbrain has stated that he considers 2010 as the best year for the PSP in Japan.
Why? PSP sales are already in the crapper, if people knew there was something better coming along they would simply not bother with it completely and we'd see sales decline even further. Not everybody can be Nintendo and announce a 3DS and still outsell every console every single week until the very last day.
Sony haven't announced a PSP2 because: 1) They haven't got a final design. 2) They have't got enough games at the stage to be shown to the public yet. Clearly 3DS devkits were out earlier... not that it matters, PSP is getting such strong support lately that they're better off holding off the PSP2 unveiling until they are ready. It'll most likely be at E3.
It's probably going to be a 3DS rip-off, that's why they haven't announced it yet. For $599.
troll harder plz /S
Do Mods exist on this website? I see trolls with 1 bubbles who continue to troll everyday.
is the better device in the first place and shouldve sold more, but it's higher price, lack of 2 analog sticks (which wasnt THAT bad) and lack of quality games until THIS year caused it to underperform to Sony's expectations. But hey, 65 million units sold is NOTHING to sneeze at. Good job Sony. And @ndibu... the PSP is doing VERY well in Japan.
No kiddin'. MH Freedom Unite sold a whopping 4,034,628 alone in Japan and total of 4,793,128 world wide.
It's over for PSP. 3DS will dominate.
talk about the games not hardware
hes just jealous that microsofts answer to the handheld market is windows phone 7
...why should we support the PSP2 if you dont know if they're going to turn their back on it like they did with the Go.
Go is still PSP. Still receiving games...hmmm...hater.
...and in NZ and games are drip fed. Some games are not even being released on PSN for download. Most of the games are Minis which more often than not rubbish.
What's up with the Trolls in here? PSP was the only hand-held to compete with Nintendo and guess what? It sold 61million+. The FIRST hand-held by sony.
i swear, thats all it is
The PSP was extremely successful But now its showing its age now The PSP2 is just around the corner (Note: I AM NOT TRYING TO TROLL HERE, I am a proud owner of the PSP and all of Sony's Consoles)
I think this year was awesome for the PSP and made a fantastic finish. The PSP did a lot. I might even buy one if it wasn't so late.
this was its best year...jesus i hate to see it in a bad one lmao... nah i loved the psp shame it dying young but hell it had no innovation
The amount of hate the PSP gets never ceases to amaze me. I guess some people just refuse to see a great product.
