GameStop VP Says PSP is Biggest Disappointment, Halo: Reach Biggest Surprise of 2010

GameStop something VP of something or other didn’t just sound off on Kinect v. Move to Eurogamer; He also has some words to say about he thinks, from his standpoint, is the biggest dud and what is the biggest surprise of the year to date. First up, in the dud category, is the PSP.

“I think Sony did a great job two years ago in terms of coming out with a pretty good line-up of PSP offerings, and I didn’t see that breadth of titles this year,” he said.┬áThis is true. I have played only two 2010 PSP titles so far, though I’ll probably get a third, Ghost of Sparta, by the end of the year. Anyway, I guess this means it’s a good thing that the PSP2 is allegedly coming out next year.

Moving on to the surprises category, we have Halo: Reach. Wait, a new, full, Halo release surprised by performing well?

“Initially the pre-orders we saw were really showing us that it may not be the opportunity that everyone, including Microsoft, was presenting it to be,” McKenzie said. He then said they had to work hard to make sure everybody knew that Reach would not be “just half a game.” Hehe COUGH ODST COUGH. I’m glad that worked out, though, because Reach is the best Halo game, and it’s not only just because there’s no horrifically painful Flood level.

Eurogamer has more.

seems like the psp is having a hard time with titles. And this PSP2 thing I still think its BS due to the fact that Sony’s website hasn’t posted about this thing. Its just a rumor and a VP thinking that a rumor is true is trully a wait for it………wait…..RETARDED!!oooo burn. why would a VP say something about something if it was a rumor and expecting it to release because of a rumor…makes no sense. Plus why does press release this crap if it is true…sounds like to me that somebody is trying to pull off a dreamcast!!
