    Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core for the win! Also, Peace Walker was little underrated IMO. Does anyone remember seeing the PSP on the CBS evening news when it first launched?

    Crisis Core is probably the best title on the system. In the future, whenever I think of PSP, Crisis Core is what will come to mind.

    Crisis Core was a major factor for me in the PSP. So too were the GTA "exclusives" that ended up being out on regular consoles. Metal Gear Acid was pretty cool and different.

    While I'm in the process of talking CC up. I would like to add that this is the only game that I've gone out of my way and repurchased after losing my original copy. Not only that but the soundtrack has a crazy good production value for a handheld game.

    Ahhh – I only got fond memories of the PSP. A great companion during the pre-smartphone era.

    I was blown away by its ability to run GTA – I could not believe my eyes, that they could cram such a huge game into such a small device.

    Today, of course, those same GTAs are available on phones for a dime and nothing. Times they sure are a-changing.

    GTA was awesome on the PSP. I'd take it over any smartphone game any day.

    Some of the days in school in classes like English where I knew everything they were teaching, my PSP would be there under my desk as I played with some of the awesome games it had. Sad to see it go, but it deserves its rest. The psp library and the impact it had as an all around device as a kid who was never home and always out and about made it the perfect present.

    RIP PSP, you did good.

    I'm still using my PSP. lol Last month, I beat FF9, and right now I'm playing Valkyria Chronicles 2.

    Solid system. If you haven't played Crisis Core, you haven't played PSP.

    I have one and I'm certain that I used under 50 times. Be gone with this handheld and release all the games for the PSN store (PS3 and PS4 compatible) and we will all be happy.

    Amen.

    Ah… this lovely little companion sure does bring memories.

    I remember taking it everywhere, whether it was gaming or listening to music, and I'm not even a fan of mobile gaming.

    This guy showed smartphones how gaming should be done. It blew my mind to see GTA and MGS in a tiny little screen.

    Logged in so many hours with MHFU, FFT, Tactics Ogre, so I enjoyed owning one, but Sony really dropped the ball when it came to the psp, can't say I'm shocked to see the vita is flopping so hard.

    Got my PSP around the end of January 2006. It's been 8 years and I still love it. Great system, great games, not to mention some great JRPGs.

    Hopefully it's exit from the gaming scene will allow more people to look towards the VITA – which is another GREAT SEXY system.

    Crisis Core, Dissidia 1& 012, War of the Lions, Monster Hunter Freedom: Unite, Tenchu: Shadow Assassins, and PSone Classics… It was one hell of a ride, and I must admit I'm sad to see it go.
