Ah, the PlayStation Portable. To be honest, if I ever got my hands on one, I’d just be hacking the firmware and running emulators.
For games I already own, of course.
Long load times for most games and SONY’s penchant for firmware updates that break the homebrew functionality don’t help.
And of course, there’s EA’s head of development saying this:
EA says it has shifted its handheld priorities since DS began pulling away from PSP. “There’s no doubt that EA has historically bet more on PSP,” said Garner. “I think we were excited by the technology, but the consumers have proven that actually what they want is fun.
Burn. Harsh words, but consumers have already proven you can have fun with the PSP. You just have to downgrade the firmware and code the fun in yourself.
Not good news for SONY, especially after Target and Walmart pulled UMD movies from their shelves.
