Why did the PSP suceed as much as it did?

Forums - Sony Discussion - Why did the PSP suceed as much as it did?

PSP was riding the success of the PS2 in its early year. Back then(before the iPod) console on the go was a huge deal...

The explanation for low software sales is simple.....it was being used for multimedia capabilities. But then the iPod came out and people forgot about the PSP.

The PSP could have been the new Walkman. Sony should have released some kind of music service like iTunes for it, maybe even release a UMD-less PSP with pure focus on multimedia. Sony just is too slow to act, as proven with how low they let Vita sales go this year.

I remember how amazing it was...Played frikkin Ridge Racer 100h tho I didin't like the game :D
It was something new and cool when released.But lot has changed in past years..If Vita was released back then it would had destroyed everything on its path.

 

 

Take my love, take my land..

OH one can only dream. That would have been perfect.

I think I still got my old walkkman somewhere at home haha.But I know it eats tapes.

mini dsic also had potential, but damn mp3s killed it.
