Gamespot has posted a great video retrospective of the first year of the PSP.
The PlayStation Portable (PSP) was released in the US on March 24, 2005, and was the first system that seemed poised to threaten Nintendo’s dominant Game Boy franchise in the handheld market.
The system doubles as a portable multimedia device allowing people to view pictures, music, and video–depending, of course, on the size of their memory stick. Sony has been using the system to support the UMD video format, for both movies and video games, although the UMD movies have been notoriously unsuccessful in the year since the PSP’s release.
A little more than a year after the system’s release, the GameSpot editors take a look back at what games they’ve enjoyed on the PSP, what they’re doing with their PSPs right now, and what they’d like to see out of the PSP’s future, either for the current hardware, or the next.
As with most of their other video features (NES Retrospective comes to mind), it is very enjoyable so give it a watch even if it does start out with a negative slant.[via Gamespot]
