Yahoo: Goodbye, Sony PSP
Once again its a slow news day so we can have some Nintendo fan-boy time with this article. I will not say that the PSP is dead, I don’t own one myself but what I have seen and heard its not that bad. The only problem the PSP has is the that the DS exists…..Ha Ha there is my fan-boy punch. To make it fair this article does take a jab at the DS, but the fact still stands the the DS exists and is killing the PSP….Ha Ha another fan-boy jab.
Whatever happened to the PSP? The device that Sony once touted as “the Walkman for the 21st century” is fast disappearing from popular consciousness, and if you believe the rumors circulating just three-and-a-half years after its launch, it’s up for a major rethink in 2009.
Over the crucial month of November, the Nintendo DS shifted a jaw-dropping 1.5 million units in the US alone (up 20% from last year) while the PSP languished, managing just 421,000 sales — actually down 27%, in what was in general a tremendously strong month for video games.
