    Default PSP "A useless waste of space"

    There are few things that an entertainment device can be called that are worse than "useless." Codemasters vice president Gavin Cheshire wanted to make sure that he properly emphasized his disdain for Sony's handheld in a recent interview, calling the system a "useless waste of space," going on to also bash the user experience that it provides.

    Codemasters
    I should have stopped reading at that word right there.

    I actually understand where he's coming from though, as many of the titles on the PSP are either sports games, or niche titles.

    Heh, well that was a quick lol.
    Unfortunately most of the PSP's games really aren't worth getting, but there are a few decent titles.
    The PSP Go though... Eghk. You can download the same games on your regular PSP given you have a big enough memory card, plus you can play the store bought games~!

    I'm aware that the PSP Go is a expensive piece of trash. I personally think the PSP slim is a fun, little console.

    PSPGo should GTFO.
    PSP Slim ftw.

    ..and playing good old emulated RPGs on a downgraded PSP while taking a ride to work is awesome.

    I sold my PSP in 2006.

    I've personally never gotten that into handhelds. At first it was cool to be able to play games anywhere, but after a while I realized that "anywhere" usually never meant anything more than sitting on my bed or in the living room as opposed to my desk

    I never saw the point in handheld gaming. Is your life so boring that you must play games everywhere you go? Never owned a psp or ds and never will.

    If ppl couldn't hack the psp or pirate psp games so easily and emulate psx titles on the psp so easily, the psp would be dead. Sad thing is I still want a psp! Though I'll wait till the next psp after 3000 and GO so I hope psp 4000 is kick *** and hack proof.

    Well, they're time-killers. That's about it. Look at it this way. You work at the office. You're going through a few hours of incredibly slow downtime. Where you really have nothing going on other than sitting there. Would you rather stare at a wall, or have something occupy your time for a bit? I think I would rather do something that entertains me than waiting for the paint to peel.

    Unless I'm mistaken, 3000(and GO by association) are both hack proof because the hardware or firmware has yet to be cracked. Of course, I haven't checked in forever so what do I know.

    I had to look up codemasters just to see who they are. Sadly, I'm not surprised they think the PSP is "A useless waste of space" with the games they bring out for it.

    I bought my psp for roms/ps1 games and other homebrew stuff...

    Would be a waste of 150 if it wasn't hackable.

    I've bought 5 PSPs in my life. I sold 4 of them for gas money. Now that I have Dissidia, I think I'm going to hang on to mine for a while. I also downloaded Final Fantasy Tactics, Disgaea 1 and 2, and Jeanne D'Arc.

    So far, Jeanne D'Arc is outstanding. The big heads creep me out sometimes though.

    I completely disagree. I can barely do better than 80% on that song. Lol
