Sony: Third Party PSP Support 'Disappointing'


Posted September 12, 2008 - By jmanalang

Sony's PSP machine rocks a high-res screen, Wi-Fi net support and it proves a worthy companion to your accomodate your gaming needs during travel. But even with the new PSP 3000 coming out this fall, Sony Worldwide studio boss Shuhei Yoshida believes that third party developers still needs to realize what their portable baby can do.

In an interview with IGN, he said:

"Yeah, it’s really, really disappointing and it’s a lost opportunity for the third-parties... They should look at what the PSP can do for their titles and the potential for the business that their IP has... We have to show by examples... What’s happening in Japan is interesting — because of the massive success of Monster Hunter, Japanese publishers realize, ‘here’s a resource’."

Monster Hunter PSP's a smash hit overseas, but most quality PSP titles such as Ratchet and Clank: Size Matters and God of War: Chains of Olympus were all home-grown from Sony. It would be nice to see more third party hits like Metal Gear: Portable Ops on the PSP, so we'll see what the future may bring to this console.
