View Full Version : PSP reaches the end of its life in Japan

Looks like the PSP will be retired in Japan next month. No word on whether this will be the case in other territories, but a shame nonetheless. It's definitely had a good innings though, and it still remains the only games device I have ever imported

Does that mean the PURE & PULSE servers will be shut down? [not that I ever used them] just more as a 'Head's Up' for those that did.

Pulse was closed down ages ago, Pure never had a server. All online play happens over ad-hoc party

Makes you wonder what the future is for the VITA.
In all honesty, I think most people who want portable gaming use their smartphones now days, well from what I see happening on the bus to and from work.
I have never seen anybody playing a VITA since it was released.

Mind you, if you were new to Sydney and walked around the city, looking at the current population I wouldn't blame you if you thought you were in Shanghai or Singapore.
I don't think Australia can still be considered a European type market, it's become extremely Asian centric in regards to what the market is purchasing.
It's wall to wall Asian students here ATM

That's exactly what I wrote some time ago but on the other hand VITA has a few gems. This console is doomed from the launch, but it's so cheap that getting it just for Wipeout, Killzone and Uncharted is not a bad idea. It's really sad that Sony announced it won't support the console with AAA titles anymore:(. PSP RIP.
