Associated Press' top handheld choice? LocoRoco

The Associated Press is one of the world's leading providers of news and opinion in the world. So, when such a huge mainstream press outlet says something good about the PSP, I take note. AP chose Oblivion as their Overall Game of the Year, and gave LocoRoco the award for Portable Game of the Year. "Sony's PlayStation Portable finally received a great, original game this summer with LocoRoco. Heaps of cuteness, creativity and charm made what could have been another boring platformer into one of the year's most original and irresistible video games."

Surely, this comes as a surprise to those that expected a DS game to win. However, it's not all roses in Sony-land. The PLAYSTATION 3 got the dubious award of "Worst Console Launch."

One of the things that I like about Loco Roco is that it is "scalable": it isn't too difficult for my 6 year old nephew (his favourite game).... if you just want to cruise through the levels, you can do so fairly easily for a young child. But if you really want to be hardcore about collecting EVERYTHING, then the difficulty ramps up considerably, which is good for the older gamer.

Other games aimed at kids like Me & My Katamari are too difficult right from the get-go for the younger audience.

And who would think that a blob can have so much personality ?
