The ads with Marcus make me think they want to sell the PSP to children. Ya know, special children.

But most kids probably have a DS. And I'm sure mentally challenged kids know the difference between a quality handheld and a shitty one

I own a PSP and still play it regularly. It's just not for you.

I think it really comes down to what you want out of your handheld.  For example, I don't particularly care for the more bite-sized gaming experiences, regardless of whether or not it's on a mobile platform.  This is the reason why I regret buying my DS and really want a PSP.  Most people feel differently than I do on this issue, obviously, but I still think the PSP will have a grasp on a niche market going forward.  I doubt it will ever be real competition for the DS.

As an unrelenting Nintendo fanboy, I kinda really like the PSP. It has a bunch of compelling games.

 

But uh, ignore the adverts.

I really liked the PSP back in 2005 when it had pixar like graphics on the go.
But I didn't drive a car back then.
Handheld games are for people that take the peasant wagon to work/school.

I'll say it: I hate the kid.
 
That said, I don't have anything against the PSP, and if they had all of the older PSP games that I wanted to play available for the PSP GO, I'd probably buy one. But they don't, so I wont.

I honestly couldn't care less about the psp. I think they should just drop the handheld thing and put those resources into making the ps3 and future consoles better. Nintendo's got the handheld shit locked down.

@canucks23:
Nintendo also has ridiculous console dominance as well. What Sony needs to do is reinvent itself in both arenas. I would like to see the same from Microsoft, along with a handheld from them. Smart companies become most creative when they're not first place.

I think Sony and Nintendo should become partners and Sony do the console shit and Nintendo do the Handheld then both can use each other's ip's.

Agreed completely.  I should also add the tired point that because Sony is trying to fit a console experience on to a handheld, one nub just doesn't blah blah blah...   
 
I watched Advent Children on a PSP once though, that was cool.  But then I watched it on a TV, that was better.

I owned a Game Boy Advance for a week and gave it up. I've never looked back, except when I want too.

I find it highly distracting as well.  
Paul Rudd should show up in a commercial just for shits and giggles. Or Mclovin (I know his real name is Christopher Mintz-Plasse but even if he cured cancer he will always be known as Mclovin. Just like Christopher Mcdonald will always be Shooter McGavin.)

If you want full-on 'real' games you go elsewhere.  Consoles/PC.
If you want something to give to a kid to get them off of your TV you go elsewhere.  The DS seems tougher and more and kid-friendly.
If you want a kind of showy adult piece of tech you go elsewhere.  The iPhone has the app store and is a damn phone.
 
It has games and is a cool device but it's just too niche and it's kind of clear the PSP is screwed in the US.  It probably needs to stop selling in Japan before Sony do something drastic.  All SoA and SoE can do is try and make it look like a better deal and throw ads at you.

I think you guys need to lighten up, I really like the new PSP Ad campaign. It's pretty funny and basically that's what kids want. Remember, all of you don't need to be exposed to advertising to buy things, you're knowledgeable enough to look up what you want by yourself. The ad is just that, an Ad that's guided to a specific audience, younger kids. Aka, not any of you.

I gotta admit. I found it really when funny when Marcus said. "I consume a healthy amount of suckas online everyday."

I play my PSP much more than my DS. It has a more appealing library to me.
