Sony showed off it’s new and improved PSP. Changes: a nicer screen, and a slightly different case … that’s it. So you gonna buy it? At least the pricing is the same. Is this Sony’s answer to the Nintendo DS (which is totally dominating BTW)?
“Sony has sold about 41 million PSP machines globally – 10 million in Japan. Nintendo has sold 77.5 million Nintendo DS handheld devices worldwide, nearly 23 million in Japan.” (link)
Sony needs a radical change if it wants to make a dent in Nintendo’s market. Change the experience, not just add features. If you want to compete you either do on a price level or content. Either way Nintendo wins. So you have to compete outside of the box because the regular rules don’t apply here. Get better games and the gamers will come.
