    Of course there's a loss, no one buys their PSP Go's.

    Not surprised. The Go wasn't a stellar idea, either.

    In short, the PS3 is doing really well and both the PS2 and PSP are practically dead. It's time for Sony to concentrate on PS3. Just let the PSP die, bring PS2 backwards compatibility to the PS3 and focus on making a better system than Microsoft!

    PSP shouldn't die, it has quite a lot of potential, now all the game developers need to do is make some use of that potential.

    Piracy killed it.

    Meh, if it wasn't for homebrew, I'd have sold my PSP a LONG LONG time ago...

    Though we'll probably see a PSP2 soon, some more 3D-bashing and then a PSP3D-attachment which they'll boast as better than Nintendo's.

    Piracy is probably the only reason the PSP has held on this long. Or at least, the exploits and homebrew sometimes associated with piracy. The PSP Go has none, and it failed.

    Losses incurred during the PS3 era are over 5 billion dollars. Close to 6 billion.

    I agree with you completely. [​IMG]
    I bought my PSP BECAUSE of its homebrew and piracy capabilities. If it didn't have those, I would have never bought a PSP.

    Same for me [​IMG] And even then, I thought it was too expensive for the small amount of things it is capable of, so I bought it used from a friend (actually, I traded it for a phone I found on the street [​IMG])
