It had a good run (in terms of my personal enjoyment, at least), but the end of the PSP is nigh. Sony has announced that later this month in Japan, PSP shipments will cease. US gamers are already used to this, since shipments stopped back at the start of this year. EU folks are in luck though, as Sony is going to continue to ship them until later this year.

It's been almost ten years since the launch of the PSP in Japan, and it will be missed. Although it didn't really find its footing outside of the typical Monster Hunter explosion, it featured a ton of niche games that I really came to know and love, like the ill-fated Mega Man Powered Up.

I'll miss it, and I hope my model holds out for a long while.

There are also a ton of videos showing the various 3DS themes.more

That Xbox 360 is blue!

Consoles sporting nontraditional colors can be hit or miss, but I have to say, I'm liking this blue Xbox 360. It'll be available starting October 7 in the US at Walmart with Call of Duty: Black Ops II, Call of Duty: Ghosts, a...more
