Sony Pledges to Reinvigorate PSP in 2009 with New Titles

284w ago - Sony UK product manager Claire Backhouse has stated that significant new titles heading to the PSP this year will essentially revitalize the PSP.

Although a number of these titles are currently unannounced, Sony feels they will aid in attracting greater interest from new customers.

To quote: 'SIGNIFICANT' NEW titles are heading to the PSP this year that will revitalize the format and attract new consumers, Sony has told MCV.

Now over four years-old, the PSP has steadily established itself throughout the current generation, selling over 40 million units globally - 3.2m of them in the UK.

But software sales have been less consistent. In GfK-ChartTrack's monthly report for January, the format accounted for just 3.6 per cent of the UK software market in unit terms - a stark contrast to Japan, where 2008's biggest title was PSP game Monster Hunter.

Speaking to MCV, UK product manager Claire Backhouse said that comparable titles are on the way over here - a number of them unannounced - that can help turn around the format's current standing.

They have been saying that for some time. 2009 is here and I don't see the titles they announced.
