Gamasutra writes, the PSP has been the best selling hardware platform in Japan for the first half of the fiscal year, from April to September, according to new sales data from Famitsu magazine publisher Enterbrain.
PSP is giving DS major competition. As expected, the 360 is dead last. It will get worse for Microsoft as PS3 gets White Knight Story this Holiday. Nintendo is leading the home systems with Wii. :)
PSP is king so far. The Wii leads home consoles. As expected, 360 is dead last. ;)
The PerfectionStation brand is better than ever! The Blu-Ray of Death is gaining more power with each passing moment! And The Cell is fully under our control! I think Emperor Kutaragi, Lord Yoshida and I deserve a long vacation for our hard work! May The Cell be with you, my Sony Soldiers! MWAH-HA-HA-HA!!!
Good to see ya man. :)
Greetings eagle21, my Sony Soldier! May The Cell be with you! MWAH-HA-HA-HA!!!
@King Kaz Our dominance of the flop box brand has been absolute.With White Knight Chronicles arriving as the true next-gen RPG,the xbots will be eliminated by Christmas
Nice to see you again Kaz. The Bots are becoming weak now. They were once a grand army but now they are a bunch of failures. For example: pp, the Fart and Power of grief. Lets finish them off once and for all! lol
I guess the Sony heads all forgot to show up for work today XD
its been long time!! how was ur vacation?? time to get on the killing spree and finish off MS once and for all!!
PSP is such an amazing handheld and it's a shame developers didn't give in to it's strengths more. I haven't seen 1 new IP on the PSP. I can't remember the last time a game was made just for the psp without it being established as a franchise elsewhere 1st on a console. It's stupid. PSP should've had it's own games made for it. It has the power to run ps2 games so they opted to do rush port jobs in most cases. It's a shame. GOWCOO Ratchet & Clank Daxter Killzone MGS PO And countless others are all great games, but preestablished franchises and that is a shame. We needed more rpg's on the system and more original content. All there is to it.
Agreed! The only problem with the PSP is that it had almost PS2 power so it was an ideal candidate for PS2 ports. I am happy with Level 5 and Square Enix's support for the platform. I just hope more publishers see the light and make new and innovative titles for the machine.
FF7:CC FF:Dissidia KH:BBS PE3 FFXIIIa Square alone justifies PSP purchase in 2009. Not to mention 2 new Level 5 games: Ushiro - http://neocrisis.com/conten... Cardboard Senki And here additional 4 games: http://neocrisis.com/conten... What you say, can say ONLY that, who has NO idea about what is going on PSP and what games are coming. The only THING, that TRASH developers stoped creating games for PSP, since TRASH doesn`t sell on PSP. While games with score 7-8, come on PSP every month.
porting PS2 game to PSP, or creating sequels,prequels can guarantee to sell games on it...BUT This makes developers less willing to put new IP on it as they can surely create a better game on PS2/PS3 first then port it over to the PSP... PSP is a big market but the chance of having great games like Monster Hunter being ported back to consoles(o well it ended up at Wii..) is rare
I'm getting all these disagrees and for what? Everything I said was the truth. Everthing. You all tell me where in my post I went wrong and got off on speculation. Please, tell me. I haven't seen 1 game on the psp made just for the psp. A new franchise just for the psp. Every game is a pre-existing francise. Always. Final Fantasy, Killzone, Metal Gear, God of War, Daxter, syphon filter, castlevaina,silent hill, Ratchet and clank, and the list goes on and on and on. None of those are original IP. They might be original games for the PSP but the franchises are already established before hand on the ps1 and ps2.
It's nice to see the PSP doing so well in Japan. Monster Hunter no doubt helped push the sales beyond that of the DS.
the only thing i want to see more of is cross talk between the ps3 and the psp.. same way they did with one of the socom ps2 and socom psp games doing certain extra side missions or getting intel would unlock weapons and maps etc for the other.. i think if i got a map from a room in fireteam bravo, connected it to my ps2 the map would then give me an edge in one of the socom ps2 games (forget which one) more of that i would like to see and with rumor or designing levels on the psp to transfer on to the ps3 for littlebigplanet will increase psp sales like crazy
1st on the PSP! can't wait for Lumines on the PS3, i kill at that game
I'm glad the PSP is getting some recognition. Haters will just pull the 'DS is outselling it worldwide' card. Yay! That's amazing.. but the PSP is doing exceptionally well for a first time effort. It does have the software... its just a shame that developers are not what they used to be: willing to try. But beyond that, the PSP has a great line up existing IP's and new IP's. I can't wait to see Ushiro and Cardboard Robot in action (though Jeanne D'arc never came to Europe so I hope these 2 do at least). Square has some killer support, and Sony is also pushing forth with the likes of Loco Roco 2 and Patapon 2.
@ Silicon in Gamerzone Well there have been some IP's just on PSP (or started there at least): Patapon and Loco Roco WHere sequels to both are coming up. But I agree with you, there need to be more to keep the system alife. Rather fast I hope. On the other hand, whats wrong with a great version of an excisting IP, like God of War on PSP, FF on PSP? I don't see a real problem in that actually... A good game is a good game. Started on the PSP or not, as long as its not a shamefull port...
@MART I know you dont like the PS3,but do you like the PSP?
mart did you get banned? :)
Patapon and wipeout are my psp favorites.
Thats the PSP droids not the POS3. Just wanted to make sure you understand that. I didnt want you to get your hopes up.
Go PSP! I still have to get mine. Nintendo and Sony are doing really good so far.
