Today is the 5-year anniversary of the PSP’s release. The PSP has redefined what’s expected from a gaming handheld system with its many features and multimedia capabilities. However, Sony says “the best is yet to come”.
Peter Dille, SCEA’s Senior Vice President of Marketing, talks about the PSP’s success as well as the future of the device:
“Today, the PSP system is a well-established handheld platform that continuously redefines portable entertainment with quality that’s unparalleled. As PSP celebrates its fifth anniversary, the best is yet to come. We’re very excited about the vibrant 2010 lineup and are committed to continuing to offer entertainment experiences and immersive gameplay only possible on the PlayStation platform.”
Even though the PSP is showing its age, we expect Sony to continue to support their first foray into the handheld market for years to come. That being said, we wouldn’t be surprised to see a new PSP announced at E3 or at another trade show later in the year.
