SCEA’s John Koller has told that more of Sony’s larger franchises will be hitting PSP this year, making it the “best year the PSP has ever had”.

“There’s a lot of software coming. We’re really focused on software, and I don’t think that’s a big surprise given that it’s going to be the best software year the PSP has ever had, there’s no doubt,” he said.

“You can think of some of the major franchises on console that would come over to PSP and people are going to be very excited.”

During the interview, Koller said that Sony has only unveiled the first half of machine’s line-up so far this year, and will release more announcements leading into E3.

“The fruits of the labour is pouring out this year, and we’ve been talking about it a lot, but we’ve only mentioned about the first half of the line-up,” said Koller.

“There’s another half to maybe three quarters that we’re going to be announcing in the months leading up to E3. There’s a lot of big franchises to come.”

He went on to talk about how successful 2008 was despite the limited number of titles available for the handheld.

“Last year was the best sales year for PSP, and that was with a limited software line-up. How high is high when we have a much better software line-up for this year?”
