Developer D2C calls PSP ‘a sleeping giant’

In an interview with Gamasutra, D2C founder and Madden veteran Scott Orr called Sony’s PlayStation Portable “a sleeping giant” in terms of possible sales.

D2C has lined up some new titles to be launched this spring for the PSP and WiiWare, including SPOGS Racing, the bull riding title we told you about earlier. Gamasutra asked Orr why he chose these platforms over Xbox Live or PSN. He cited the Wii’s mass-market appeal, and added that the PSP is also well suited to the family-oriented, downloadable style games.

“I believe given its installed base and increasingly strong sales, the PSP platform is a sleeping giant just waiting for the right kind of content that’s value priced and easily obtainable,” said Orr.

Orr went on to say that he’s not ruling out Live or PSN, but he did say that most titles have been “lacking in originality” up until this point.

Do you think the PSP has potential as a source of downloadable games?
