  1. The Lost Garden is so amazing.

  2. It's the only site with what i would call true "game jounalism."

  3. I think Sony's handled the PSP's functions fairly well so far by downplaying the system's many different features and focusing on its core abilities. For the average consumer that hasn't studied the system in-depth like we have, the PSP's a handheld game machine and full-length movie player, and there's plenty of software (..not very good software in my opinion, but at least they're selling) that supports those functions. There's plenty of other uses for the device for those who wish to dig that deep, or until Sony creates a specific service for one of the handheld's many functions that the average consumer will flock to. I'm not saying that they won't abuse and mishandle the advertisement and marketing of PSP's abilities; they just haven't yet.

    Basically, I don't consider PSP's media playback from a memory stick playback any different from being able to playing music CDs in game consoles for over a decade now. PSP is being sold as a game and movie machine and nothing else.. well not yet anyway.

  5. I think the one of the reasons the PSP isnt selling is theres no demo systems still! I havent seen one anywhere. Maybe if people actually saw the thing it would maybe move a few more systems. The commercials dont show shit and probably wont sell shit. Demo Demos Demos are the key.

    I saw a couple playable demo units for the first time in Best Buy a few weeks ago... they were tightly secured in a weird, angular position unsuited for optimal (or even comfortable) viewing, and one of them was on the menu screen w/ no game inserted. The one with the game had Hot Shots Golf in it, a nice game but hardly one to make most people take particular notice.

    Good going, Sony.

  7. Wait, Final Fantasy VI is coming to DS next year?

    No, everybody's lying just to make you think it is.


  9. I've been seeing PSP demo systems in every EB I've been in the last couple months. They're usually playing The Con and the analog nub is usually missing.

    Sony: "With more then two million PSP systems sold in North America as of September 2005, the PSP system has established itself as the preeminent device for mobile entertainment and gaming.....Since its inception, the PSP system has quickly become the device of choice for portable entertainment."

    I like how Sony just ignores the fact that they're losing in every sales category in every continent to TWO Nintendo "portable entertainment" systems and about 17 models of Ipod. Nintendo should just come out with a press release along the lines of "With sales of over 5 million, the DS has established itself as the most successful videogame system in history".

  10. "I like how Sony just ignores the fact that they're losing in every sales category in every continent to TWO Nintendo "portable entertainment" systems and about 17 models of Ipod."



    Maybe you should work in their PR department so you can please the shareholders with this

    "Well, we aren't really doing very well"
