    Re: psp gone

    Dang! I just got one of these things for my birthday! As for the movies there is a product out there where you can copy DVD's you own onto the PSP. I plan on doing that. I LOVE the Psycho Stuff Spooky Bear!

Survey after survey has shown that if the price were lower, many people would buy UMD's, especially since they can have the same features as the DVD.

    As for the games not being that great, well that's all personal opinion.
    Certainly the price was and is the problem. I could never imagine paying 20-30 dollars for a movie that I can only watch on my PSP. I rather just get a DVD that I can play on many different players in my house,not to mention a portable DVD player that has a bigger screen than a PSP. I wonder if they'll be able to salvage it in the future considering like you said that Wal-Mart and Target have stopped carrying them. I don't see much of them around here even when I go to a GameStop or EB games.

    Sony is not going to discontinue the PSP. In fact, there currently working on a redesign that will include a Hard Drive. The PSP Camera and GPS systems will be coming out next month, and Japan is getting a silver PSP late this year.

    So those rumors are false.

    Not true. The current handheld market has shown that the PSP has been closer to a Nintendo handheld than any other handheld competitor. And while the DS is kicking the crap out of the PSP in Japan, worldwide they're relatively close.

    The DS lite has certainly boosted recent DS sales though.

    Let me put it this way. Until Sony says officially they are stopping production then you can panic. If you hear it from anywhere else I would take it with a grain of salt. Besides I highly doubt they would stop production. It doesn't sell well, but it does sell.

    Eventually, of course they will. Just as Nintendo stopped making the NES. Sony isn't making that many PS1s these days, either!
