    Sony Cant Produce Enough PS2s and PSPs to Meet Demand

    We here at PSLS might be all excited about the PS Vita (and beyond), but as a high-priced machine, with full priced titles, some gamers have decided to pick up Sonys last-gen machines to gain access to a huge library of budget titles. Apparently, demand is so high for the older platforms that Sony cant even keep up with PS2 and PSP supplies.

    SCEA Boss Jack Tretton was asked by Forbes whether the PSP would still receive support and future games, and replied:


    The PSP will continue to sell on at $129. Right now there is more demand for PSP than there is production capacity that is pretty much truth with the PlayStation 2 as well. PlayStation 2 will continue to sell as long as we can build it profitably and there is an audience for it, and PSP will follow that same trend.
    Interestingly, Tretton doesnt actually say whether the PSP will receive more games. What is also interesting is his statement regarding PSP and PS2 demand in the US considering neither devices have made any serious impact on the NPD sales charts in years, how many old consoles are Sony actually producing? With both devices being sold at a profit after years of manufacturing improvements and cost cutting changes, it does seem odd that Sony isnt making enough to keep up with all the PS2 and PSP-hungry gamers.


    When was the last time you played on a PS2? Let us know in the comments below.

    If they produced a PS2 with a HDMI port I bet even more people would buy one.

    PS4 has little to no competition.

    Yeah I've been after a new slim one for a while. They're grossly overpriced because we're definitely not getting any new PS2s from Sony in the UK

    Wow, that's awesome. Crazy that the PS2 is still ticking, but also, not really, cause it's one of the best consoles ever!

    Probably the cheapest way to get into console gaming, with the biggest gaming library available...

    It's called BC Sony
    Unless you're gonna revamp up production on platforms which are now technically dead (or close to it) this should be a priority to keep the new hardware going.

    They're making more money this way. Plus now that we have PS2 Classics and HD Classics I doubt we'll see BC return. I just hope they can get most of the PS2 library on the Store.

    Just as well for them that PS2 was and still is such a runaway success because although the PS3 rules, it hasn't brought home the bacon

    I'll be interested to see what the backwards compatability for the PS4 will be like.

    This is why I think that any next gen consoles that launch now or even a year from now would propably have a rough go of it. In this economy people are alot more price oriented.

    I've still got my original ps2 & slim, not surprised people are still interested with the epic game library it has.

    If they could make a PS2 with:

    Bluetooth 4 player
    Virtual Memory Cards (and accepting, say, SD cards or Memory Stick)
    HDMI output

    I may consider buying another one whenever my 60 Gig (now a 500 gig) PS3 dies. As of now, there's too many benefits to playing those games on PS3. If NONE of those things happened, and my 60 Gig died, I'd probably stop playing PS2 games, because it's too hard to go back to the old system.
