Really, this has to be a joke. Even if Sony were in trouble, these guys make $30 billion in a slump year. I don't think a $90million dollar loss would make them withdraw a whole Playstation product line. Especially considering it's only been on the market for a week. Sony would probally lose even more if they scrapped the PSP.

more seriously, Sony were sued for patent infringement on the 'Haptic' technology (where controllers vibrate in line with actions on the screen), So unless the PSP has this we are OK

no i'm not a nintendo fanboy in the slightest, I actually own most of the major consoles out there today including a psone and ps2 et al. I was just making an observation, I have been to most major uk cities in my search for rare and great videogames systems and games, ALL of the major games outlets i've been in are always full of the burberry capped chav brigade, all huddled around the PS2 shelves and bargain bins, just an observation, I actually had one silly chav tell me that the "Dreeeemcast was shite" when he saw me purchasing a fishing rod and steering wheel (which I got both for 10!!) he didnt actually comment on my copy of ICO for the ps2, funny that? SO PLEASE I'M WAY TOO OLD TO BE A FANBOY, I wasnt born in the 80's I was born BEFORE CIRCA 1974

Wouldn't be suprised if somebody got beat to a pulp and had their PSP/DS stolen.. which is why I'm not gonna venture out with either just yet, you never can tell round here if you are gonna be a victim to mass swarms of chavs lookin' for somethin to steal and sell for cider/cig money LOL

Anyway.. back on topic, I can't see Sony dropping the PSP especially when it could become part of PS3, maybe with minigames which could be downloaded to the PSP much like the VMU with the Dreamcast :D now that I'd like to see!
