Why PSP is failing us......and how Sony can save it

The words 'gathering dust' seem to be synonymous with PSP and this recent ad from US retailer EB offering shoppers the chance to trade in the past (PSP) for the future (DS) pretty much sums up the dwindling enthusiasm for Sony's handheld.

But why is Sony's elegant, versatile and frighteningly powerful handheld failing to excite us? look at some of the problems that have seemingly dumped any love for the device in the doldrums and offer some fixes to help PSP get back on the right track.

There's no killer app and not enough casual pickup-and-play funfactor type of games like Lumines. Also, if downloadable independant games that were meant for the PS3 like flOw were compatiple with the PSP, then that would be a huge plus. I'm sure it could be possible with firmware upgrades.

ohh wow, I forgot about that pic. What a catastrophe that was.

Anyways the reason PSP isn't selling anywhere close to the DS is because people don't want to play complicated graphically wowing games in the car. They want to have juvenial fun, like mariocart and what not.

I don't have a PSP or DS for the record, not one of those mobile tech junkies

i must be one of the few people that get a lot of use outta their psp. i think the marketing for it is the reason its behind. sometimes when people see me with mine they ask a lot of questions about what can do and how much it cost. some have never heard of it at all. i use it everyday though. nothing is better than playing Madden at work.
