GameZone's Louis Bedigian discusses the history and future of Sony's PlayStation Portable.
its done...time to move on...
I got my first PSP on day of release, and so far, I've only bought a handful of games which I thought were worthwhile. My DS on the other hand has been getting quite a bit of attention.
@R_1993: Exact opposite here. I bought both systems at launch the DS has been collecting dust for years, I use the PSP nearly everyday. The PSP software library just completely pwns the titles available on the DS if you like games targeted for adults. I can name twenty utterly kick a** titles off the top of my head. My second grader daughter and all her friends rock the DS hard, though. Nintendogs, Cooking Mama, Mario stuff, etc.
it certainly is not done in japan Console and game sales are great there the added functionality of custom firmware has killed the system in the west. Sony need to embrace the development community a bit more in terms of apps. I bought a new console rather than give up my emulators and PDF viewer
what are the sales like over in Japan?
Apart from the original PSP which I used for a few months, I haven't bothered.
i know i haven't had a reason to touch mine in years! Serious lack of games....good games
If you haven't touched it in years how would have any first hand knowledge about the state of the software library? I'm currently playing Socom FTB3 multiplayer and Dante's Inferno on the PSP. Both games are outstanding portable titles, IMHO, and were released within the last two months.
I havent played my PSP in the longest time. Theres no point to it at all. I use it for remote play, thats its only use.
Add another analog stick, and I'd certainly be more interested. It's not rocket science
I believe it's done for too. Sony needs to think long and hard about what they do next with the handheld area of gaming.
I actually love my PSP. Love the games, love using it for PS1 classics. Think it's a much better platform then the DS.
i use mine daily - currently playing gurumin + fat princess I liked assassins creed - dont understand the hate
Loved the idea of the PSP, but I never played mine beyond reviewing. Sold it a loooong time ago. Can honestly say I don't miss it.
