Atelier Ayesha Plus is a new entry in a classic-JRPG series with a pretty paintjob, but does the classic formula still hold up?

Finally Broke My Crowdfunding Rule

I've had a long-standing rule to avoid getting involved in any sort of crowdfunded activities.  I didn't donate to Shadowrun or Wasteland, but I did buy and enjoy both of them (I'm plugging both of those games right now, just so you know they're good).  I haven't...

NGP and PSP Can Co-Exist, Says Sony President

Posted on Friday, February 11 @ 11:54:05 Eastern by


What to do with the soon-to-be previous generation of consoles when the "new generation" (literally) shows up is not an unusual problem. In an interview with Edge, President of Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios Shuhei Yoshida firmly believes that both PSP and NGP can live together, as Sony is still "struggling to meet" consumer demand for PSP:

[NGP] can't replace a platform that has already been on sale for seven years now... we can't sell the NGP for the same price as a PSP. The PSP has become very affordable and popular, especially with younger generations.

I think the NGP needs time to mature and get adopted by users. So, for the time being, both platforms will coexist.

Looking to the PS2 when the PS3 arrived is a strong analogy: The PS2 held out for several years before most consumers switched over, and in some countries, the PS2 still holds strong today in part because of the countries' taxes. While the American audience is more ready to adopt the NGP than the Japanese audience, the PSP has a few years left in it even after the NGP makes its debut.

But how long until the PSP and all its incarnations is phased out?
