All the Video Game Consoles I’ve Ever Owned in Chronological Order, Pt. 4 of 4

PlayStation Portable

This ‘platform’ earns the designation of ‘sweetest piece of hardware no one really buys’. There is a perception that it is a ‘platform’ for ‘urban individuals’. Usually see lots of PSPs on the subway being employed in the playing of some shooter or Madden.

I just use it for roleplaying games from Japan and for portable incarnations of the Metal Gear Franchise. Whenever we write about ‘NPD numbers’ in re hardware unit sales, PSP is usually in last place. Sony says it is because of piracy. I regularly sell this console and then buy a new one when something comes out that I want.

Seems I have less ‘personal sentiment’ regarding the PSP than toward  other ‘platforms’ discussed in this chronology besides the Nintendo DS.
