PSP 1000 Thumb

Comment posted What the PSP did right – and wrong by Splitting Void.

I’d take big killer games like Monster Hunter Portable 3rd Dissidia Duodecim and Bleach Heat the Soul 7 over Angry Birds and Plants vs Zombies or Pokemon any day. For me the PSP most often wasn’t the kind of thing I intended use to pass a couple minutes, I personally would play quickie games on a smartphone for that or just listen to music. My fat original PSP did work well being carried in my bag to school or in my cargo pants pockets to pass free time with my friends or when I went on trips or long commutes and felt like relaxing with some quality progressive games rather than quickie games that get repetitive fast. I thought of the PSP more like a portable console and I prefer it to be that way.

  • Sony reveals 3DTV in a visor
    Damn, if it works without a TV and with 3D Blu-Ray then I’m sold. I can just chill in my cramped space and play games and watch movies in 3DHD. Only drawback is that others can’t really watch with you, but I mostly play games by myself anyway.
  • Crytek boss believes PS Vita may struggle against mobiles and tablets
    I don’t even want mobiles or tablets for gaming…because for one thing their controls and tech aren’t ideal for gaming, and for another thing most of their games lack length, depth, and replay value unless you’re bored out of your mind out somewhere and have a few minutes to play something that looks like it could be made with flash and played for free on the internet. I still think of the PSP and Vita as a portable console to play in the comfort of my room without a console or while I have some time when I’m away from home. As far as I’m concerned, it’s a different market and I don’t want to see the portable console market’s triple-A games die just for the app game market. I have little interest in wasting time playing variations of tower-defense games on an iPod Touch if I have the opportunity to get into a rich storylines, detailed design, and hardcore gameplay on a PSP or Vita.
  • Sony Confirms Network Pass Program
    I don’t buy used games unless they’re dirt cheap anyway so buying another pass isn’t a big deal to me.
  • The State of Playstation Home
    I’m not much of a social chatting person. I like helping people and teaming up with people in MMOs and multiplayer games through. Games that give you in-game currency to buy stuff would be good.

    Isn’t California in massive debt anyway? Shouldn’t they worry about bigger things than just laying all the troubles on the young generation?

    i gues i got mine at just the right time
    when resistance r. came
    so the same year i got to enyoy motorstorm ae, gow coo, and others
    than i went digital with the go and 2010 had the fear of my psp exploding on me when playing gost of sparta, and lost ower 200 houres (and counting) on mgs peacewalker
    now that i have mases of digital games on my psp go, there is no reason for me to hesitate on geting vita when it comes out…
    resistance + uncharted + killzone + vita = me geting one

    to me it sounds like you dont need a psp, but are still getting one just because
    unlike many people including myself you may not be traveling for 4 houres back and fourt on a train ewery week
    when you do that, you realise that unfortunatly puzle games and arcades dont last that long
    smart phones and the ds are ofering simple quick games for one public
    and the psp is ofering console quality games for the other public
    dont fink the entire market is gona suit youre needs
    if it did, than you would be the only one playing a portable console

    also try to ceep a solid thick line betwen opinions and facts in youre next article, looking forward to it.

    I get what you guys are saying. If I had to take frequent long train rides, I might think differently. But the main point is that I don’t want to play big console-quality gamed on a three inch screen.

    I could get behind some kind of a process for the Vita where you could buy a game for PS3, get a code to play it on the Vita for free or very cheap, and transfer the save data in between. (Like the PS1 classics). I just don’t like having these big games come out for PSP, and be forced to play them in a way that hurts my neck.

    you dont have to, thats the beauty of todays market
    you hawe lots of platforms doing loots of difrent games
    if you dont beliewe youre ready or have time to play a console quality game on the bus or on a 5 inch screen(13cm), than get some psp minis, or get a 3ds, ds lite…, its not like sony is holding a gun to youre head teling you to buy a vita, or are they?
