PSP is a useless waste of space

In what surely amounts to something of a PR nightmare for all involved, Codemasters Studios’ VP Gavin Cheshire has labelled Sony’s PSP as a bollocking useless waste of space”.

The blast comes despite the high-profile release of Codemasters’ licensed racing title F1 2009 on the PSP late last year.

Well, speaking as a person who bought a PSP, the problem was that I always thought, because it was a better screen than iPods, that I’d be doing more with it,” Cheshire told Edge.

But it was such a bollocking useless waste of space; just getting stuff on it was ridiculous. That was its downfall.

Relatively speaking, we didn’t do too badly on F1 PSP. Regarding the future, PSP Go’s a lovely device, but our senior VP bought one the day it came out and has a great story, because he ended up on some customer support line just trying to do basic stuff. He had to re-download his software, do an immediate firmware update, and that’s your user experience.

Sony just hasn’t got it right. Stuff like that will make people leave it alone.”
