Sure, Kotaku knows the PlayStation Portable doesn't need "saving." It's already the most successful competitor Nintendo has ever faced in the handheld gaming space, but that doesn't mean its potential as "the Walkman of the 21st century" has been realized.

Analyst James McQuivey calls the PSP "one of the best portable entertainment media devices that anyone has come up with in years" and suspects it "could have been the first big mobile carrier for TV shows and movies" if it had the services to back it up.
