Goodbye, Sony PSP

Yahoo writes:

Whatever happened to the PSP? The device that Sony once touted as "the Walkman for the 21st century" is fast disappearing from popular consciousness, and if you believe the rumors circulating just three-and-a-half years after its launch, it's up for a major rethink in 2009.

It sold a half a million units last month in the US. That is what this person calls disappearing from popular consciousness?

I'm just here to repeat the dumbest comment in videogaming in 2008:

"What are all these buttons for?"-Yahoo!Games referring to the PsP.

The psp just outsold the Wii last week in Japan. I think its far too early for the psp to just die right now. Though the only thing Im waiting for is the second analog stick for the machine. Then I will buy me 2.

Nathan Drake, that IS the saddest comment, albeit, the most humorous comment, of the entire year. Beyond laughable, and past depressing, I have no clue how to describe that statement by them. Holy balls. That author is a moron, and needs to pull his head from his rear, because he hasn't double checked his reasoning on why "the iPhone is owning the PSP". He complains about the analog nub when the real gamers are anticipating a second, and if he loves his iPhone, great, but comparing apples to oranges will have people laughing at you. Casual gamers need to stop writing in gaming columns.

Well you can't really compare console sales with handheld sales because they both have a different appeal to them.
I don't think you would say the same thing if it was the other way around =P

since its dieing because google took over most of their market share that they had once, and yahoo lost a lot of money from the economy crisis too, while google is standing so high!!

personally i never go to yahoo ever!!! all my search is done by google! i even use gtalk and msn and once every 6 months i open yahoo messenger!

i have the psp, and am playing MGS:PO and its amazing, potapon was one of the most fun games i ever played and FF7:CC was amazing too!!
also the fact that i can play ps1 games on psp thats makes it even more amazing!!

and about sales, its selling better then ps2 and 360 combined world wide since 360 is have a hard competition by the ps2!

acedoh3631d ago

and I love it. I originally bought a PSP when it launched and the newer PSP 3000 is so much better. What I am a little worried about is when I have went into stores like Target and Walmart it almost seems as though they are dealing away with the PSP game section. It's unfortunate because I want the PSP to be a success but I don't think these stores will give it a chance. Noticing the strong advertising campaign I don't think SONY has given up on the PSP...

jaysquared3631d ago

Why buy games at Wal Mart or Target when you can just DL online! hehe

Mozilla893631d ago

The people or person writing tech articles for Yahoo must really hate Sony for some reason. Maybe he didn't get a Playstation when he was younger?

"Goodbye, Sony PSP"
PSP sales say otherwise.

kwicksandz3632d ago

Yet PSP software sales agree.

Danja3632d ago

TrevorPhillips3632d ago (Edited 3632d ago )

arent they working on psp4000

resistance1003632d ago

FYI PSP 3000 is already out

Nathan Drake3632d ago

I...I have no words for such an ignorant and idiotic statement.

IQUITN4G3632d ago

It wasn't meant like that obviously


As long as crap like this carries on getting approved, N4G will never be able to compete with the big dogs.

This site gets worse everyday...

e.g. "As the iPhone steps into the portable gaming ring, it's already got the PSP on the ropes."

Saying that gave me the right to drive a Hemi into his balls. Thats like saying the Wii is putting other gaming consoles like 360/PS3 up against "the ropes". Douche.
