    Default Last PSP (UMD) releases?

    First, I'll apologize for not doing any research anywhere first, but I saw the "last PS2 release?" thread again, and wondered about how close to the end of the PSP (UMD version) life we are, or have we already hit it? I was collecting PSP games fairly aggressively, but I've cut way back on all my game buying and haven't picked up any new ones in a while, but still, I'm curious if we've seen a cap on releases yet, or will soon.

    Ragnarok Tactics and Pro Evolution Soccer 2013 are still slated. It's possible PES could get canceled for the US, or end up rare.
    Konami has some history with now-expensive smaller print run American soccer games.

    I'm pretty sure Ragnarok Tactics will be one of if not the last PSP physical UMD releases. I've yet to preorder but I probably will do so sometime this week just to not have to worry about finding it later on.

    Ragnarok Tactics will probably be the last US release, but isn't there still a market in Japan?

    The state of the PSP in the US really is a shame considering there are still a fair number of interesting games coming out but they're all digital-only now. Us collectors who want physical releases are pretty much screwed.

    I'm hoping Aksys will localize atleast one more PSP game for UMD release after Ragnorok Tactics, if they are feeling crazy enough. Also, I'm still clinging to the idea of a Persona 2: Eternal Punishment PSP localization and UMD release from Atlus as well.

    PSP is still selling in Japan. In fact, three of the top 10 selling video games last week (in Japan) were for the PSP.

    As for the US, Ragnarok Tactics is the last announced release, and that's in November. You never know when they'll announced another though.

    I was in my local Walmart a few weeks ago and literally saw maybe a half dozen PSP games. If that's any indicator, I don't think there's gonna be much coming for PSP UMD games other than a few shitty sports titles? Whatever remaining games that are coming for it will probably be digital downloads. Good thing there's a huge used PSP game market out there.

    Thanks for the responses guys!

    PSP games are definitely getting thin on the ground; and it's not like I've looked a ton, but I don't think I've seen a NEW title in months.

    I would be glad if the PSP Suikoden spinoff even gets a digital release in the US! I would support that even if it wasn't physical, just like I did with Vandal-Hearts: Flames of Judgement. If that game wasn't so short it could have been good enough for yet another sequel.

    If the Vita doesnt surpass the PSP then people who like making homebrew games will most likely choose it for their projects like with the Dreamcast, so who knows.

    PSP is currently my favorite handheld system I own, I love a lot of games for it.

    I really wish it wasn't dying out, I really can't afford a Vita.

    The latest issue of EGM had a lengthy roundtable discussion about what's going to happen in 2013. One of the things the talked about was the PSP. They said that new releases keep happening in Japan, and that Sony has pretty much forgotten about the system, so they aren't charging developers fees anymore. They think that some of these Japanese games will come to the US because it's cheaper than ever to do so (I'm not sure if they mean download or UMD). They also said some of the games they've been releasing in Japan are considered wacky by US standards.

    Anyway, PSP in America MAY not be over, and in Japan it's far from over.

    It's amazing how well the PSP is still doing in Japan. Just about every week it outsells the Vita according to The-magicbox sales reports.

    Hopefully XSeed or Axys will pick up some more titles for UMD release, although I would imagine that any stateside physical release for the PSP at this point would be a huge gamble. If anything new games will probably be strictly digital.
    If a god is willing to prevent evil, but not able, then he is not omnipotent. If he is able, but not willing, then he must be malevolent. If he is both willing and able, then why is there evil? If he is neither able or willing then why call him a god?

    Have not seen a new PSP game come out here in, probably a good year?

    I just picked up Growlanser: Wayfarer of Time last week from Fry's. Amazon is your best bet for the latest titles.

    Yeah...I really need to get off my butt and pick up a copy of Ragnarok Tactics sooner than later.

    Class of Heroes 2 may still get a physical release even though the Kickstarter didn't pan out. Vic said they'll be printing only as many copies preordered as long as they get the minimum amount.
    Everything in the above post is opinion unless stated otherwise.
