You're right....
But if you look at Japan, I think you can see where the market is going....
NintenDogs will be an absolute killer-app, but not because it appeals to hardcore gamers, but because it attracts new gamers too.....but then there's GTA.....we'll see :D exciting :D

Personally I doubt that GTA will draw that much of a crowd to the PSP.  The masses that like GTA already have it on their PS2, and will most likely not care about the protable version.  Just my opinion.

You underestimate the power of fanboys.

From what I hear it can be a little demanding for the hardware.

I played GTA 3 on my old rig which had a 950mhz Athlon, 518 mb RAM, and a Geforce 3 Ti 200 and it ran just fine.

I think that PSP DVDs are stupid. just get a freaking portable DVD player if that's what you want, they play longer and fit all the DVDs you already own, plus the screen is bigger, and it sits up straight...

The DS is also very stupid, two screens are useless. stylus: also useless. I'd buy an GB Advance before I bought a DS.

of course, I havn't had a portable since GB Color, and probably will never buy another one, because I don't have that much free time away from home. If I did, I'd rather just get a laptop that plays REAL games, and does everything else a portable entertainment center should do (except fit in your pocket).

I MIGHT buy a Gameboy Micro, THAT looks cool.

It's not useless, it's just that they haven't created any games that make good use of it.

exactly. useless. I guess a game like pictionary would be pretty cool... something like that. all I've seen is kirby's 'draw a line from a to b'.

You could use the sylus like a mouse.  There are plenty of console games where I wish I had a little "hand" in the game to manipulate things with.  It would be ideal for strategy games, or anyplace where a thumbpad feels awkward.  Maybe you could use it for spore?

They could make Spore Lite  :P

"Spore Lite" all the great taste of spore, none of the side effects!
A portable version of spore would be intresting, and much easier to use on the DS then psp. Games that have little mouses you have to move with arrows get a little frustrating after a while. With the touch screen it would be easier.

What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

yeah that would be making good use of the stylus, you could just have the creature editor on the DS, and transfer it over to pc later.
