A lot of content was 'thrown over' from the PS2 by developers to the handheld, says marketing VP
Sonyís PSP handheld was overrun by console ports affecting its sales in the West, the console giantís marketing VP has admitted.
Speaking to Gamasutra, John Koller said that despite its success it became difficult to define the consoleís unique capabilities due to a lack of original IP.
He said many developers had simply "thrown over" a lot of content to the handheld from the PS2, rather than taking advantage of the PSPís own functionalities, and hoped this was a mistake Sony would not repeat with Vita.
"The issue that happened with PSP is we got overrun with ports," said Koller.
ďIt became very difficult for us to define what made PSP unique. The content development became a bit unstructured or decentralized, in that we got a lot of content that was on PlayStation 2 and got thrown over to the handheld."
