I've hardly even seen many PSPs in stores to begin with, even before they apparently stopped shipping to the US. Most stores around here might have one in the shelf with the other Sony consoles, thats it. No games though except for maybe Target, or the bargain bin, unless your Gamestop.

Might be a good time to grab one, since they're officially dropping retail support most retailers will probably want to clear out whatever is left from their inventory.

Might be worth investing in the latest model before it stops being available at retail. I only have the original phat model and that has never performed that well. It still works, but even though I don't use the PSP anymore, I might end up with a hankering some years down the line and I'd rather not find that it doesn't work anymore and my only other option (aside from not playing mind), is to spend double the original MRSP for a used one.

The Vita is " far more successful" than the PSP? That's news to me. I was under the impression that the Vita has been doing even worse than the PSP did:

The PSP was never really popular in the West, but neither is the VIta and it isn't even doing that well in Japan.

The only reason the psp sold was mostly due to square enix releasing like 10 games which all became successful. Every other company only had 1 or 2 games on the system and half the time they had issues.

It is.
The PSP sold 75m+ units. The Vita is at 6m-7m and it's been 2-3 years since it's been released...
