Putting Dead Head Fred on PSP made it darker

Is PSP really for a more mature audience? The developers of Dead Head Fred think so. GameTrailers interviewed Ryan Kaminaga, producer of Dead Head Fred, and he revealed that moving the game to PSP made it much darker than originally planned. "Honestly, it started out as a more child-like product ... very whimsical and colorful. And then when we created it more for PSP, it took on this darker, more film-noir look."

Continued focus testing revealed that PSP owners wanted the game to look darker. The main character originally had a more anime-inspired look, which was ultimately canned. Then, players wanted more and more violence in the game, which led to the gruesome decapitations and other deaths found in the game.

I'm all for darker, more mature titles on PSP. It's one of those things that distinguish it from DS. I just doubt the gameplay and the scope can come anywhere near close to Vice City Stories, the reigning champ of mature gameplay (and perhaps all software?) on PSP.

I dunno Hector - I personally love "Chile Con Carnage" and "Infected" as brutal PSP-only blood-romps ... and am really looking forward to this!
