It's funny that Yoshida pretty much details that the PSP was crap.

lol I noticed that too. And honestly he is right.

JoeIsMad2692d ago

I don't know about that. I think it has it's advantages, but if you're looking to pick up a games console, it's probably not one of them.

I used mine primarily for post-production firmware modification so that I could run emulators of old games on the go, or watch movies, surf the net, and play music. There was no real reason for someone to purchase a title if they did modify the firmware, but I purchased mine before the DSi existed. In today's market, I don't see it competing well with the NDS.

its as if they never had faith in the platform to begin with. Considering the amount of marketing and support...I guess he is right.

I still like the psp/go however. no matter what the shirts at sony say.

The PSP was not crap. It was amazing IMO. The problem was the games.
Sony concentrated WAY TOO MUCH on brining full console games to the handheld.
Only hardcore/core gamers want this. The average consumer in most cases do not...for a portable. And unfortunately average consumers make up most of the buying demographics for portable game units. If it were the other way around, the PSP would have came out on top of the DS easily.
Sony needs to have a great balance of both to satisfy both camps. If they do this, then Nintendo has a lot to worry about... especially if Sony can make the NGP price competitive with the 3DS.

I think trying to bring a console experience to a portable wouldn't be as big of a problem if they could actually pull it off, but they couldn't, not with the limited ram and lack of a right analog stick. The NGP with it's power and abundance of input methods including a second stick is IMHO a game changer. That is not to say they're forgeting about the casual consumer. Titles like Little Deviants, Sound Shapes, Hustle King, Reality Fighters, Smart As, Broken, etc, almost half the announced line up attests to that.

hopefully it gets more devloper support and less pirating

JoeIsMad2692d ago

I certainly should hope it will get better dev support, as the transition from PS3 to NGP is said to be easy. The question is only if developers are going to shell out all of their titles for the handheld and the PS3. If they get into that trend, you'll have the serious market versus the more child-like in NGP vs 3DS respectively.

will it sell more? I am not sure

i_da_pappy2692d ago
