Forums - Sales Discussion - For those claiming PSP Go didn't flop it's time to step up

*sigh* another thread about the PSP Go.

Let it die then, you seemed too interested in a dead console.

Yes it flopped, by any standard.



Expectations are easy to meet when you don't announce what they are.



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.

Yes it's flopped... by any standard...

only flop imany of you peeps views.

Had sony shipped 1m and sold 5% that be a flop, they knew it would not be a PS3 slim type seller.

Aren't their rumors of the next psp upgrade, so its not like they ever saw GO as taking over from the umd psp.

Go is a experiment.

So what you are telling me is that units shipped vs. units sold decides whether it is a flop or not? That is the most asinine thing I have ever heard.

Well, it's not losing money so it must be a flop relative to expectations then.

What were you expecting for a handheld only $50 cheaper than the PS3 that retailers around the world refused to carry?



Expectations: So we now agree Madworld and NMH flopped then? I mean... after all it did meet those devs expectations but that's just spin now isn't it.

360: So if the 360 sold 30k in NA after a revision would it be a flop? You're damn right it would be. PSP Go sold more than PSP. The 360 revision would have sold less than its other model.



My question is, what is the standard we are holding the PSP go to? Until that is defined, this conversation will go round and round with no end in site.

I say we hold it to the a premium PSP model standard... that's obviously the most logical. Example: Elite to the Pro. 60 gig to the 40 gig. And right now... the Go sold as much or more than the 3000 in both territories we know of... that's pretty good



Its just a test? What? What a monumental waste of money if it only a test.

Well yeah, 30k looks really terrible no matter which way you look at it.



“When we make some new announcement and if there is no positive initial reaction from the market, I try to think of it as a good sign because that can be interpreted as people reacting to something groundbreaking. ...if the employees were always minding themselves to do whatever the market is requiring at any moment, and if they were always focusing on something we can sell right now for the short term, it would be very limiting. We are trying to think outside the box.” - Satoru Iwata - This is why corporate multinationals will never truly understand, or risk doing, what Nintendo does.
