Capcom not giving up on PSP, says Svensson

Capcom has dismissed speculation suggesting that the publisher is no longer making games for Sony’s PlayStation Portable as "absolutely 100 per cent false.”
"We're still making new PSP games,” Capcom’s Christian Svensson asserted on the Capcom-Unity blog.
"We may be the most successful PSP publisher in the world with Monster Hunter Portable 2nd and 2ndG. It'd be a difficult decision to defend stopping development when we have such success on the platform," he added.
Sales for PSP software have remained relatively sluggish in Europe for some time now, though the handheld continues to perform strongly in both Japan and North America.
Sony recently unveiled a number of high profile games in production at E3 last month, including Patapon 2 and Resistance: Retribution.

y doesnt anybody make that piece the used to have for the gb. it was like a plastic analog that would go over the control pad. Then we would have 2 analogs.

I really can't understand why sales for the PSP are so lukewarm. I mean I know that hardware sales are pretty darn good, but it's such a better machine technically than the DS, that I don't understand why it doesn't do as good. As for software, I'm REALLY surprised at sales there. Is it really because so many people just hack and download the games for free? I sure hope not. I mean, that's inevitable with just about any platform but if this is true than in the case of the PSP that would mean that piracy is more like 80% or higher! Wild...

The PSP does just fine ins the US and Japan, in EU I think they just dont care as much about portable gaming.
As for that Dpad thing (RE: #8), the Dpad control would still be digital so all that means is if you put the analog fake over it, there'd just be a longer distance to push before your character moved and it would make playing games with it harder due to sluggishness. There will never be a solution to the "1 analog issue" on the PSP get over it and move on, there are plenty of great games to play that dont even need it.
