PSP has done what no other handheld could.



Around the Network

The PSP being $170 or $180 is retarded. Get a major price cut rolling.




could someone please tell me how a system that has an install base of over 50 million is "losing"? This is not a war to dominate the whole market. it's like saying there should only be one restaurant or one bar in a town. They're making good money. Threads like this just seem to be focused on flame wars which is what this site is against.



It needs advertising - I've never seen a TV advert for a PSP game EVER.

Conversely, I'd say PSP has done what every other handheld has.  Failed to unseat Nintendo.

But PSP still the best selling non-nintendo handheld. Anyway, PSP has to win the war against piracy to make it a viable system for 3rd party support once more and some killer apps. But, i honestly think it's time to PSP to retire, it have been in market for what? 5 years now? And is failing in every region except japan.

A system that sells more hardware than software weekly really have a problem.

PSP2 needed and it needs to be damn good.

pretty much all i feel as well.

An its not going to be easy since the PSP will be limping to its death sales wise and in the minds of consumers.

Well, that's damning with feint praise.

It's not like PSP's the first successful non-Nintendo handheld.  It's sold a lot, gotten decent marketsare, attracted decent support, likely made good profit, and ultimately failed to make *any* real impact on Nintendo.  Sounds like Game Gear or WonderSwan to me.



Nothing, it's too late.

If you consider the iPhone/iPod touch it may not even be true.



Anyone can guess. It takes no effort to throw out lots of predictions and have some of them be correct. You are not and wiser or better for having your guesses be right. Even a blind man can hit the bullseye.
