We ocasionaly come across comments in forums like:
Female Psp gamers?? Not in my country. Once my girlfriend saw my Psp , she said “Still playing games???Grow Up”. more…
Views that are somewhat encouraged by sites like Joystiq that has a post listing the top ten girls of PSP. No, not gamers - characters! The image to the left is an example - and all but two sported giant boobs!
But the fact is that most of us see girls in - sexy poses in PSP wallpapers, sexy poses in PSP ads, or as sexy characters in PSP games. We don’t so much see girls actually playing PSPs.
All the same, it certainly looks as if females of all ages are taking to PSPs in UK and Europe (though not necessarily as gamers!) and in Japan (more on this in Part II). For now, just take a look at this recent video on the subject.
Looks like a real push to develop completely new games. Not to replace the type we get now - just pushing for more variety in role types. What do ya reckon? Got any suggestions to put forward?
Put them in the comments section.
