04/08/2013, As a regular anime watcher, you don’t know how upsetting it is to know shows that I thoroughly enjoyed have video games that are either based on the show or continue its story only available in Japan. I could import them, but seeing how I can’t read a lick of Japanese, it could be rather difficult to do so. That’s why when I heard not only would the U.S. be […]

It functions just like a regular PSP with one major caveat: it won’t have any WiFi connectivity. Games will be played on the […]

07/27/2011, While patents aren’t a sign of things to come (most of the time, companies file for patent applications just to protect ideas that may or may not be used in the future); a recently discovered Sony patent shows a new direction it might be taking with its gaming consoles. And a weird one it is.

06/27/2011, Sony’s PSP might be all but dead here in the U.S. (it’s been sitting at the top of Japanese hardware sales for months) while its gearing up for the PS Vita later this year, but that doesn’t mean fuel can’t be poured onto the dying flames to heat things up. Announced earlier today, Sony’s three “Dual Pack” game bundles pack two games together into a smorgasbord of pure portable fun […]
06/07/2011, When Sony first announced the PSP all those years ago, there were some skeptics who questioned whether Sony is able to fight on Nintendo’s turf and win.

04/07/2011, Critical information such as the NGP‘s official name (NGP is tentative and short for Next Generation Portable), pricing, release time and official launch games have yet to be unveiled. Don’t fret, a reliable source from VG247 says that all will be made clear at this year’s E3 video game expo in Los Angeles in June.

04/07/2011, What do the Japanese love more than Nintendo 3DS? Their regular DSi and DS Lites? Guess again. It’s their PlayStation Portables. For the second week in a row, Sony’s PSP has managed to outsell the new Nintendo 3DS handheld – all without the heavy hitter Monster Hunter (a game proven to shift piles and piles of PSP consoles). According to Media Create, the PSP sold 58,075 units last week (up […]
