Sony doesn't get it.

Sony is introducing new color PSP just in time for the "Holiday" season. What I don't get is which marketing R&D suit is smoking crack in thinking this will boost sales? Nintendo made this work because their game systems were usually redesigned mid-cycle and colors just added to the design. The PSP has been on the market for over a year and a half and this is the best thing they could come up with? I'm sorry Sony but until you figure out how to make a killer/sleeper game that would draw in hoards of crowds, you'll continually sell one fifth the amount of DS Lites every month. I really really tried to love my PSP when I had it, but in the end, the only thing fun about it was loading Nintendo emulators to play old school games on them. With all the 3D polygonal multidimensional gaming the PSP had to offer, the only exciting thing was playing games developed 10 years before it was even a glimmer in Sony's R&D Team's eyes? Sorry, not worth it to keep around.
