Developer says PSP was doomed from the start

Developer says PSP was doomed from the start

I have two PSPs around my house and neither of them get played and never got played much. The original console was a gift for my son for a good report card. He played it for a few months and then told me the games weren’t "cool" and it has sat in a drawer ever since. I have played it too and came to the same conclusion. The PSP really sucks. I have more fun on my iPhone and my son plays his DS all the time.

Sony PSP2 Shown Off in Private Meeting, Coming Fall 2011

For a short time, the rumors regarding the second version of the traditional PlayStation Portable were picking up speed, which would lead some to believe that a spy photo would inevitably break cover before too long. But, that still hasn't happened, and in fact the rumors and speculation started to quiet down. We've heard in the past that the device was already in the hands of developers, that the PSP2 would feature a touch-pad on the back of the mobile console, and that it would not only feature a camera on the back, but also one on the front. These new rumors actually enforce a few we've heard in the past, but it looks like Sony isn't in any rush to get the new handheld gaming device to the market.

Sony PSP2 in the Hands of Developers

Rumors about Sony's next-generation PlayStation Portable (PSP) may have gone quiet for a little while now, but that doesn't mean they're over and done with. Looking back, we've heard how Sony plans on reinventing the PSP model altogether, and then we heard that touch controls could find their way onto the back of the device, confusing plenty of people out there.

And now, it looks like those previous rumors may have been true.

Digital reading is one of those markets that's not so much a niche, anymore. There's plenty of people out there that still wish it was, surely, but the simple truth is that while reading a physical book (or in this case, a comic book) may be nostalgic, getting your reading done in the digital landscape is becoming more common place than anything else. The iPad's launch may have made it harder for the physical media to make its case, especially when Marvel launched their comic book service for the tablet device, but we can't forget about Sony's own offering for the PSP. Their Digital Comics service, which has seen a steady growth on their mobile video game console, might be heading to the big screen, after all.
