Sony's PSP business has been a bit challenged in the U.S. but it's fared quite well in Japan. The PSP2 is clearly already in the hands of developers, but will Sony be taking the right direction overall with its portable business? In a recent op-ed, IndustryGamers strongly suggested that Sony should get into true mobile gaming with a PlayStation Phone that offers 3G access through a wireless carrier.
As it turns out, most of the prominent game industry analysts agree with IG's sentiment. IndustryGamers polled several analysts about their thoughts on the PSP business and how it could be "fixed." Most of them independently answered that Sony should indeed turn to the PlayStation Phone idea, possibly by teaming with a strong competitor like Google and its Droid devices.
