    That’s a very big leap for the PS3. New hardware? Big game?

    what the heck is keeping the psp up there so high? sure it’s a neat little device, but everywhere else it’s been mediocre at best, i loved it when it was still working, MGS Portable Ops & the Star Wars battlefront spinoffs were pure awesome, & even some multi plat titles looked good on there, like the Smackdown vs Raw series

    Monster Hunter. It’s a huge game in Japan. Plus social gaming, as in, meeting up in social spaces and playing ad-hoc is quite common in Japan, where in the west we all just jump on PSN/XBL
