Sony: Plenty of life in the old PSP yet
Sony's John Koller has said "unequivocally" that the PSP definitely has a ten year life cycle.
Koller told Joystiq in an interview at E3 that Sony were still 100 percent behind the device citing the 70 titles releasing over the course of 2010 as evidence.
Koller said: "There is absolutely a 10-year life cycle for PSP, and probably more, he said. Weve talked about Well be in the PSP business as long as were in the PlayStation business, because we absolutely believe in handheld."
"Unequivocally we think its a fantastic place to be, and I can tell you that I think my group particularly the hardware group fully believes in handheld because theres different demographics that you can touch and bring in to the PlayStation world through it that you may not always be able to do through other avenues," he continued.
"I think it's a long term opportunity and we will stay in it. Now in terms of where we are in the current life cycle, I think were just kind of hitting our stride. We just announced that we hit 60 million units worldwide, which is a very good number for PSP, weve got a lot of good development support," Koller added. "We always say a platform will turn off when the development spicket turns off. Weve got 70 games coming this year, weve got 70-80 coming next year its just a very healthy platform."
