    I've noticed lately that the Nintendo Wii and DS get a lot of the big releases, but the PSP and PS3 get skipped out on a lot.

    Just look at this week's releases: Call of Duty 4 was released for the DS, but no word of anything of the sort for the PSP? Lego Star Wars: The complete Saga skipped over the PSP completely.

    I also read that monster hunter, which was supposed to be released for the PS3, suddenly got canceled and is now in development for the Wii instead.

    I mentioned a while ago that Rayman: Raving Rabbids was canceled for the PSP.

    Then it seems like whenever the big titles do come, developers are always half-assing it. Castlevania, for example, was a great game, but could have been so much better. It looks like they did the bare minimum to get this game out. I hear constantly about PS3 games running at only 30fps, and having horrible glitches. Is this system so hard to program for?

    Any one else a little pissed off?

    Oh well, at least we have Ready At Dawn studios!

    because there are not alot of ps3's sold. no audience. give the ps3 2 - 4 years and it will be superior in games and every other category.

    The psp is a phailure at games because it is hacked out so much. Throw in pandora and no firmware can be made to stop pirates from "stealing" their games. If I was a developer I wouldn't make games for the psp even though it is a bad ass little device.

    But the DS is just as hackable, with the same (if not less) investment...

    I don't think we can blame piracy? The best explanation for now is the sales figures, but even when I look at games developed for the xbox360 vs. the ps3, I notice that the PS3 is WAY more powerful, yet the games look better on the 360...

    Perhaps this is changing lately (I haven't checked for recent comparisons)?

    theres approximately 4-5 millions ps3s sold worldwide in 11 months. Hardly a tiny audience.
