I have been here in the scene for the last two years and I think that in that there was a “bussy” PSP Community. Right now, there is not that fuss but I think saying the PSP is dead is not right.
Firstly, the release of PRO-C with its cool online features (that Sony didn’t even try to give us because PSP Adhoc Party is not good enough), has opened a whole new world in the PSP gaming sector. Now, people are playing online and you can find up to 40-60 people connected at the same time in a day, which is not that bad considering it is not an official release by Sony and for that reason, people just do not try it. Also, Coldbird and Virtuos Flame have dedicated a lot of time on what, from my point of view, is the best PSP CFW for the unhackeable PSPs. The creation of Inferno and the PRO Online Client is what I think the PRO CFW needed to really show its full potential.
Then, as I talked in my last post, there are cool and fun Minis waiting for you to try them. For just a modic price you can get a really good game for your PSP, I mean, you have to get bored of Final Fantasy, Call of Duty, etc sometime. So, why don´t you try something more “arcade”, like Age of Zombies? Give them a chance, and do not think just because they are small they are going to be worse.
And last but not least, most people would say we are finished but there is another reason: Programming. Apart from Lua and C, now we have got Python aswell, this know but not so known at the same time (It has been there for 5-6 years) programming language for the PSP. There is only a few homebrews programmed in Python, and the best one I remember is the chess game by ZX-81. Well now, 6 years later,thanks to developer Acid_Snake, you can find those tutorials for Python and in this same website! Here are the links:
So, what are your reasons? Or do you think the PSP IS dead? Comment!
