The Cell.

Around the Network

-Monster Hunter

That's all.

There's not that much people left to buy one in Japan, their population isn't too big.

Nintendo still doomed?

The DS hitting saturation point is the main reason. It still sells the most software and that software dominance is going to continue (just look at how many games the DS gets every week in Japan).

The psp's redesign and monster hunter have contributed greatly as-well.

PSP got aload of new JRPGs recccentley didnt it, thats probably a factor

Around the Network

Monster Hunter that's all wait until dragon quest is finally released the psp will be destroyed.


Keep dreaming. The DS's time of dominance is over.



Everyone buying a PSP already has a DS. The DS played the gateway drug in this scenerio. People loved handheld gaming so much, thanks to the DS, that they went out and bought PSPs. Thus, the 90 percent overlap for PSP sales. Nobody buys a PSP first in Japan. Even the MH otaku.

In a way, the PSP needs to thank the DS for its good sales. Saturation finally left room for another item in that market.

Thats like saying, in a way sony needs to thank nintendo because nintendo "saturated" the market with the SNES.




Monster Hunter. That's basically it.

Complexity is not depth. Machismo is not maturity. Obsession is not dedication. Tedium is not challenge. Support gaming: support the Wii.

What do I hate about modern gaming? I hate tedium replacing challenge, complexity replacing depth, and domination replacing entertainment. I hate the outsourcing of mechanics to physics textbooks, art direction to photocopiers, and story to cheap Hollywood screenwriters. I hate the confusion of obsession with dedication, style with substance, new with gimmicky, old with obsolete, new with evolutionary, and old with time-tested.
There is much to hate about modern gaming. That is why I support the Wii.

^also the redesign and that DS is basically saturated
