The amount of handheld consoles I have had over the years is nutty. I’ve laid the smack down on Tetris, old school style with the original Gameboy. As I suspect color television enthralled people in the 1950s, I popped a gamer boner when the Gameboy Color rainbowed its way on to the scene in the early 90s. And no, rainbow should never be used as a verb unless I O.K it… and I just did. Come to think of it, the only Gameboy iteration I have never owned is the Gameboy Pocket. I also own a GP2X and a PSP. I like my handhelds.
Despite my undying love for pocket-sized gaming machines, I have never fully accepted the PSP into the fold. I had money to blow in Akihabara one fine Spring day last year and there was nothing else I was dying to have, so a white PSP found its way into my backpack. Since then, I have bought a handful of games and UMD movies for it and the whole system, while not being a total disappointment, has yet to really thrill me in any way, shape, or form. Lately, I have found myself going for long stretches without twiddling the knobs and buttons of my great white beast, the one made by Sony you degenerate pervs! I feel bad that my DS Lite gets most of my gaming attention but at the same time, there are not many PSP games that I am drawn to. I play Lumines 1 and 2 religiously and the occasional bout of Tekken: Dark Resurrection and Work Time Fun, but other than that, what is there to play?
In almost exactly two months, I will be returning to the United States. This means I will be selling about 85% of the stuff I have accumulated in my two years of living in the land of the rising sun and starting fresh when I hit American soil. My question to you is this: Should I keep or sell my PSP? I want a few good reasons to keep this system around and right now, I am leaning toward selling it. Are there any titles coming out that you guys are interested in? Are there any lesser known games for the system that I should pick up and try?
Also, since I am a sheep and don’t want to think for myself, I want a simple yes or no answer as to whether you think I should sell it. If I can get a good enough amount of comments to persuade me either way, I will probably go with the majority response on this. I don’t lose anything by keeping it but I do know that the money I would get for the system and games would go straight into picking up an Xbox 360 Elite and a couple of games to go along with it. So comment below and let me know what you think, make your opinion count and vote now!
