    I may just be speaking out loud......

    But in this economy, it probably is not a smart idea to create and sell something that is not really bringing anything new to the table regarding technology. The PSP still gets things done, graphics are not THAT much better and most people are fine with their cell phone or tablet.

    I love my PSP. My fave hand held I ever owned. Many wonderful games. Even my personal fave of all time. Ys I & II Chronicles. Best version to date.
    I was just saying developers in the west have stopped support and stores are starting to stop carrying them. Only reason some still carry DS games is 3DS BC.

    Xbox DEFINITELY has the best controller. By a mile.

    My hands certainly don't suit the XBOX controller, but the triggers are genius. The old white and black buttons on the original were horrible though.

    Indifferent to the D-Pad being where it is.

    I do agree the triggers are nicer, but I hate the layout of the d-pad and sticks.

    To me the Xbox controller just feels more natural in my hands. The PS3 is a bit cramped IMO. But I'm fine with it.

    I never had a problem switching between the two. It really is not THAT big of a difference. Most games I play rarely use the d-pad anymore.

    Gunny is correct. the PS3 is keeping Sony in business.
