How did sony drop the ball with the PSP? Besides the DS taking all the sales, the PSP has been a great system with the most superior portable graphics.

LOL? Are you joking? It has a nice library of games too Did you not hear about all the flaws at launch? And how sony passed them off as "It's supposed to be that way, the system is a form of art" or something to that effect. Not to mention all the dead pixel systems. The psp is a good system, just sony is a ****ty company with bad ethics imo

Who cares about how good something is if it doesnt sell.. Ive played one, its not really all that impressive. The "joystick" thing is pathetic and for games that need to use it I find it kind of hard to use it effectively.

Its better than using a dpad when trying to navigate through a 3d world.

And yeah the PSP is better in respects of being more advanced. I don't care how many people bought the DS, in respects of power the PSP is better. And who cares if it doens't sell, it still has good games, which makes it, by most standards, good.

I didn't mean in terms of hardware. It's an awesome deal at $250, just look the prices of pocket pcs. It's definitely great technology wise and the ds doesn't come close in terms of graphics.

Unfortunetely the selection of games suxs. I have liberty city stories and I like it, but there has to be more good games. Sony has a vision for the psp as a jack of all trades media player. They should focus more on games. I think sony's reasoning was that a more mature audience isn't going to want something that just plays games on the go (which might be right) but the media capabilities are kinda half baked. I don't want to buy a UMD movie that I can only watch on the psp when I can just get a dvd and watch it at home and I'm not going to use a psp to listen to music.

It was nice to run homebrew games on it. I loved playing all the old snes games like donkey kong and mario. I like to upload anime episodes and watch them on the go, allthough I havent found much opportunity for that. The psp definitely has potential. Plus maybe we'll see some cool ways to link it up with the ps3.

Im not impressed at all with the PSP. So you take crappy graphics and put them on a tiny little screen and all of the sudden theyre good?

What'd you expect, next gen graphics in a handheld? Just look at the mess of polygons the ds calls 3d.

Now that we've gotten totally
But I agree with gamer7, the PSP is a great idea and has a lot of potential, but I don't like the way Sony is doing it. It needs more games obviously, and it should have pretty much every PS2 title on it, with some new ones as well. The proprietary movie format just sucks, though it may have been a size thing more than a way for Sony to make more money. Hard to say though. The fact it can play music is pretty nice too, seems a lot more justifiable to me at least to spend $250 on something that can do more than play music and maybe look at pictures (iPod crap). If it had more games and Sony ditched the movie format, or at least made them cheaper I might get one (I might get one anyway depending on if I feel the need for portable system or not).

Since the PSP doesnt really have any good games I find my iPod to be alot better since it holds tons of music, pictures and movies...and movies that you dont have to pay for.
Very nice!
