Is the PSP a sleeping giant? D2C thinks so

Scott Orr, founder of D2C Games, had an optimistic view on the PSP in a recent interview with Gamasutra. He believes that, given the handheld's increasingly strong sales, "the PSP platform is a sleeping giant." The only thing it's waiting on is "content that's value priced and easily obtainable." Supporting this thought, D2C Games is porting its WiiWare title SPOGS Racing to the PSP this June.

While porting over a budget title from the Wii is not really a clear indication of fully supporting the "sleeping giant," it is good to see D2C putting something on the PSP. The company's positive outlook does seem a bit surprising given that Orr himself admitted that D2C's previous venture on the handheld did not fare too well in terms of sales. We're talking about the digital comic The Cryptics.

In any case, it's always nice to know that there are developers out there willing to bring content to the PSP. The PSP, as most of you have noticed, is experiencing a gaming drought with little to no new games released weekly. So, hearing positive support like this is great. We would only hope though that there be more original IP. Mr. Orr, what the PSP is really waiting on is content -- not just the value-priced or easily obtainable ones.
