So a small group of people who have rose-tinted glasses will continue to play it and declare it the best system ever?

Couldn't you say that about all retro consoles? :|

Yes, but PSP isn't the retro console that our rose-tinted glasses are calibrated for.

The whole "console dying" thing is a concept conceived by modern gamers.

If by modern you mean "people who were around for the Saturn", then yes.

^ Too mean. I remember the Virtual Boy and 32X (if one chooses to call it a console) tanking pretty hard before that.

It sold better than N64 in glorious Nippon (unless you're referring to the fragility of CD-based consoles)
My WTB thread (Sega CD/Saturn games)
Also looking to buy: Ys III (TG-16 CD), Shadowrun (Genesis) Hori N64 mini pad and Slayer (3DO) in long box/just the long box

Except maybe the game.com or Nokia N-gage. No one wants those things cluttering up their basements, much less their hearts.


Hey now, I own a complete N-gage collection and I think it is a great gaming system. Every system has a following and I really think that no system will ever die.
I am buying all Saturn games, PM me with your offerings and I will let you know if I need the game or not! (Everything must be CIB)

Currently trying to knock off all the sports games, would like to get them <$5 each! Of course if you would like to donate them I will gladly pay the shipping! :)

Tiger and Konami Handhelds. Dead.

I do need to hunt down a Bayou Billy Konami handheld for some reason I can't explain.
