Sony Relaunches PSP with a Superb Game Line-Up

Sony has listened to the criticism of its apparent apathy towards its PSP game development and, to their great credit, done something about it. At its E3 press conference on Tuesday, a string of game announcements (some known, some leaked but many new), coupled with the gorgeous-looking PSP Go have made it clear. This is the relaunch of PSP. Or, more accurately, the launch PSP should always have had.

The real reason people buy a PSP is to have portable porn, lol. If you want a real portable handheld, buy an Nintendo DS. Gamers don't want a portable gaming device with built-in porn.

Nintendo DS has all the games. Gran Turismo, Metal Gear Solid, Littlebigplanet...who needs more rehashes really?

To the guy below. 50 million people didn't buy the PSP to play PS1 games, over 100 million people can already do that with their PS2's and PS1's, lol. As for the other stuff you stated, that's what other gadgets are for.

Also the PSP 2009 library = flop. A few brand-name franchises can't save that handheld. More quality titles than the Xbox 360? LOL...go on and compare, your 1000 leagues off!

That was about a C- troll.

50+ million people have bought PSPs for:

* The ability to play the entire backlog of PS1 games

* Both disc based and PSN Store downloadable games

* Graphics never seen before on a handheld console

* Streaming radio playback

* Music playback

* Movie playback

* Watching movies or listening to music from anywhere in your house or outside by the pool with the PSP wireless connected to your PS3 inside - even with the PS3 streaming content from a DLNA server running on a computer in your house

* Doing the same thing but over the Internet from anywhere in the world

* Remotely accessing their PS3 from work over the Internet and queuing up downloads from the PSN Store to be ready when they get home at night

* Homebrew development

All for just 179 bucks.

What is amazing about the PSP is its release list for games in 2009 dwarfs a certain console in both quality and quantity. And I'm not talking about the Wii or the PS3.

I can't believe you needed to argue against a C- troll. Talk about being defensive.

Wow, I havent seen a nintendo fanboy around here for a long time.

gamesmaster3423d ago

geez, i dont see why anyone would hate on the psp, in terms of hardcore playability nothing else on market offers anything close. The psp is an amazing portable media device with fantastic games.

You talk about rehashes? how about the final fantasy rehashes on the DS, and iv lost count of how many mario spin offs they've released. Not sayng they're bad, i enjoyed them but you're being a hypocrite

I think Mr_Controversy is an attention seeker, as his name suggests..

And Nintendo's last 2 E3's can't save a dynasty of gamers from wanting something to look forward 2.

Jane Fonda called, she wants her 20min workout back.

I hope Mr. Controversy knows that Monster Hunter alone slowed down production in Japan. The same effect may not happen over here in America, but it certainly is a quality title. Since it comes out this year as well as a Metal Gear Solid title (as well as Dissidia for me!) not to mention previous games such as Crisis Core and Valhalla Knights. I'd say the PSP is a nifty hand held (which I used more than my DS)

FamilyGuy3423d ago (Edited 3423d ago )

WTF? Hypocrite much?

ALL Nintendo does is rehash old titles, you're entire argument falls apart right there. The psp has some of the greatest games released in the last 4 years and i personally wish a LOT of them were available for consoles.

I'll be getting a PspGo! to play non-pirated psp games on my television in 480p with my six-axis/dulashock3 controller. I have an original Psp but the PspGo! is what ive been waiting for all this time and i didnt even no it.

It has connectivity with PS3 controllers for use, it connects to the tv with component cables, it has internal flash so that saves time on battery burning out from spinning a umd and faster from not having to load from a umd.

There's no downplaying ANY of this. $250 is a lot to ask for a portable Ps1 but its pluses are well worth it.

Ill be picking up:
Dragon Hunter portable
Gran turismo
Motor Storm PR
Soul Calibur IV (with kratos)
Final Fantasy Crisis Core AND Dissidia
and many from its older/last years catalog.

Dante's Inferno
Monster Hunter Freedom Unite
little big planet
fat princess

PSP = win. Its the only handheld to even give Nintendo competition. Show some respect Mr C. For the adult male, the PSP is the choice handheld. Now if you are a baby or an old dood, its ds all the way!

Sarcasm3423d ago

All I did in reponse to Mr. Controversy is

"Ignore. Add to ignore list"

Problem solved.



More than a Ninty fanboy. It's a DS fanboy. I mean... I don't even know such a thing existed. LOL

Syronicus3422d ago

I have been reinvigorated into playing my PSP more already. I can't wait to see what the new titles look like and play like. It looks like Sony listened to all of us complaining about the lack of games. Glad to hear that they are working out the issues.

Brasi823422d ago for you story of 50mill plus, PSP units sold. Although both the DS and PSP are great systems to have. They are all fun, and that's why I play, to have fun. =)
