Portable gaming does not favour the same kinds of game that console gaming does, and a game like Angry Birds is about 100 times more important than a Call of Duty game ... Part of the reason the original PSP struggled was because it was a portable home console, and I wonder if it wasn't hacked and couldn't play SNES emulators how bady it would have sold.
Dual Analogue CoD with fully functional online play on the go and graphics that piss on the competitors product... Yeah, you thought that through.

Oh come on. PSP was definitely a success.
...and you didn't read past the emphasized part of his post.
How many people will choose to play CoD on the PSV instead of on their PS3 or 360? Handhelds are played quite a lot at home and thus the PSV, just like the PSP, is basically competing against home consoles. Why settle for an itty bitty tiny screen when you can have a better version of the game? When the PSP came out it had a Grand Theft Auto game to look forward to. The biggest game to ever grace a PlayStation system at that time. Nowadays CoD is the biggest third party IP, but fundamentally nothing has changed.
The only people that will find the idea of CoD on a handheld appealing are those who really play a lot outside of their homes, but we already know from the PSP that this aren't that many people. Sales of PSP versions of PS2 games were always way behind their home console counterparts (this even goes for original PSP games compared to their home console brothers) and nobody should expect it to be any different for the PSV. Dual analog sticks or not, people won't settle for an inferior experience (which the PSV is compared to current HD consoles).
