yeah it sucks. It's like Sony doesn't even care about it. It's also way too expensive imo

The PSP does alright in the Others region, usually doing around 360 numbers.  But, I think the Go could have been a breathe of fresh air to the PSP line, but unfortunately Sony overpriced it.  I think if it had been priced at $169.99-$199.99, it could have been selling pretty damn well.  I know I want one, but I'm not paying $250 for it.  For $50 more I could get a Slim.  My thinking is Sony just wanted to get some profit from the early adaptors to help with the losses from the PS3.  I wonder if they'll announce a cut for the Go at E3.

The price of PSP Go isn't so big problem the price of PSP games in PSN store is huge problem. I know I'd be buying a lot of them if they were priced in 5-15euro range but when new ones cost 30 euros i say FU and get pair of pc games or ps3 game for that cash.

Also PSP imho in west became a japanophile user console and general audience doesn't care about it.

Xbox reaching new lows? I don't think I've ever seen it below 2.5k yet. And poor PSP Go, Japanese can't apriciate it's greatness as I do :).



MY HYPE LIST: 1) Gran Turismo 5; 2) Civilization V; 3) Starcraft II; 4) The Last Guardian; 5) Metal Gear Solid: Rising

i cant believe ff 13 is not selling i know ff games ont have legs but serious the biggest hd game is out of the charts after 4 weeks but there a 25 k ps3s being sold each week and not 1 of tem is interested in the biggest game

look at it this way. FF has been on the market for over 4 months in japan.

It has sold 1.9M copies to 5.1M ps3 owners, that's 37% of the market.



Around the Network

FFX sold 2.3 Million (Famitsu Data) before it got like 3 re-releases which led to it eventually selling 3 Million in Japan.

FFXIII will return to the top 50 with re-releases & a Versus XIII + FFXIII pack in! Down with Agito XIII!

Hey, this is off-topic, but is just me or is anyone else having troubles visualising the color in text and some other text properties?
