* The poor, poor PSP

1up looks at the PSP and what ails it.

Personally: I don't own a single game for the PSP. I had a few, but I traded them all back in; only one was worth it and after I beat it, that was that.

My PSP now functions as a portable NES/Gameboy, and occasionally hauls anime for me to watch when I'm on the road.

Sad, isn't it?

The PSP has traveled the spectrum of being hailed as the greatest piece of hardware since the introduction of the original PlayStation to being treated like a Goodwill store where developers drop off bare-bones ports and shoddy, old games. Since the release of the PSP on March 24, 2005, to the time of this writing, there have been approximately 30 games released, 17 of which were released during the launch window. Around 10 or so of the games available could be considered ports of PlayStation 2 games, which is about one-third of the entire PSP library. And if you work out the math with the number of games released since the launch period, it comes out to less than one PSP game release per week?.76 games to be exact.
