Sony Computer Entertainment New Zealand has announced via a press release that the original PSP console is still selling well in New Zealand.
PSP 3000e in Europe, $99 PSP 3k black friday sale in the US, and continually strong sales in Japan.
PSP still has a lot of shelf life.
is a great system. I have the 1000 and the GO and my son has the 2000. I personally prefer the GO because its smaller and hooks up to the tv (like the 2000) but I still use my 1000 for the UMD games i still play to this day. Newer games I get digitally but there are some you just cant find in digital form.
I love the PSP GO, its nice to see a fellow GO fan. Right on brother.
Yup I just got myself a new 3000 model. Such a great handheld.
I just fired up my PSP 3000 after 2 weeks of Uncharted 3. I need to play my FFVII, LBP, Modnation Racer,Lilo and Stich that I got free from PSN months ago. Whole lot of back log to finish. Can't wait ot play Adhoc with the PS Vita.
If you liked (J)RPG, i reccomen to try Fate/Extra. I just finished it on my PSP 3000 and it's a good game.
thanks for the heads up, mate
Who buys new handhelds?!? Nobody would buy a PSP new for $130 when they can get one used for $70.
some people just dont like used stuff, money has nothing to do with it for them i personally dont mind used items as long as the condition is good
I got a used PSP. It has UMD reading problems and its dirty. Its why I haven't bought any new games for it. Its really annoying having to reinsert the UMD over and over again.
As much as I love some of the PSP's library, I'll hold out for my Vita.
I sold my PSP a few months ago, I kind of wish I had hung onto it a little longer. I'm getting a little anxious waiting for the Vita, I was going to buckle and buy a PSP bundle from Target yesterday for $99, but they were sold out. It was a moment of weakness, I'm glad they didn't have any in stock because I would probably be regretting it when the Vita gets closer.
The PSP is now a worthless piece of outdated junk. I'm ashamed to say I'm having more fun on my cell phones with vatly superior graphics and colour depth and simple but fun gameplay. The Vita now seems underpowered in the GPU department compared to the current generation of cell phones and is going to end up like the PSP again with outdated looking games.
Not sure if serious...
Have fun with that. I and others will be experiencing true handheld gaming next year with the PS Vita. Gaming on a cell phone just doesn't feel right.
lol Delusions, denial, or just fail?
If you think that about the Vita. I can't imagine what ywould think of the 3DS. Btw its going to take a long time for the majority of smartphone owners to own a phone that's equivalent to the vita in terms of graphical power. XperiaRay
well.....phone manufacturers already have access to quad core CPU's
Graphics > gameplay right? No. It seems kind of obvious you're just trying to rile people up with a comment like that.
I still have my PSP 1000 model. Works perfectly fine still
@silvacrest No...how about... http://m.tomshardware.com/n... instead. But the question is,could Sony afford waiting longer to launch the vita? Idk. But thats the price one pay of choosing a phone over a dedicated gaming handheld, you are always having to switch hardware annually just to keep up. Then again who is to say people sign up for long term contracts just to play bite size games. I mean really...the only thing keeping this talk alive is the price differences between the small bite size games and the big budget console games. Other then that, this talk is moot. But on topic, part of me feels Sony might just ride the psp until it reaches a certain sales mark. Like say...100 million units? I bet to them no PlayStation platform should close under that mark, even if it takes forever to reach, the goal remains. Both vita and the psp will co-exist for this reason.
These things are great if your into emulating classic games, I love all the different hacks and things you can do with the older models.
