The 3DS has been met with extremely positive reactions and views ever since it was unveiled last June and hardware leaks have shown off what it’s capable of. But Sony is still keeping very quiet about the PSP2 and is even yet to officially announce it.
The PSP has had trouble competing with the DS for years now. PSP games have traditionally not sold well and the PSP Go is now considered pretty much a failure due to such low sales. Whilst the DS has remained the top selling machine in most territories nearly every month.
More importantly, games that you would expect to see hit the PSP such as: Metal Gear Solid 3, 2 Resident Evil games, Saints Row, Splinter Cell, Ridge Racer, Dead or Alive and Ninja Gaiden have already been annouced or shown off for the 3DS. These are in addition to many other games meant for the younger audience that has traditionally controlled the market for the DS.
All the hype is over Nintendo and the 3DS whilst Sony quietly waits for an opportunity to steal the thunder. But the real question is, should they even bother? I mean by the looks of it the PSP will never overtake the DS so maybe Sony should give up trying.. Anyone disagree?
