The Final Fantasy crowd is known as much for its rabid devotion to the franchise as its penchant for dressing up as the more popular characters in the games. With such a devout following, many would consider it unwise to continuously deprive this crowd from the object of its obsession with no sign of relief. However, that's just what Square Enix has been doing since it announced
Final Fantasy XIII
and Final Fantasy Versus XIII at the 2006 Electronic Entertainment Expo.
Most recently, a misinterpreted quote from FFXIII director Motomu Toriyama led many to believe that Final Fantasy XIII would most definitely make it out in 2008. Although Square Enix was quick to quash the rumor, saying that no release date has been announced, work has nonetheless progressed on the much-anticipated PS3 game. And it now appears that progress has interfered with its partner in crime, Final Fantasy Versus XIII.
In a recent interview with Famitsu (translated by numerous sources, including Forever-Fantasy), FF Versus XIII director Tetsuya Nomura said that those working on the game have been appropriated by the FFXIII team because the latter game is the studio's number-one priority. As such, work on FF Versus XIII will not resume until development on FFXIII has wrapped, according to Nomura. On a positive note, Nomura did say that the FF Versus XIII storyline is essentially complete.
[UPDATE] In a lost-in-translation moment, Square Enix has denied that development on Final Fantasy FF Versus XIII has been bumped to the back burner. "Reports that development for Final Fantasy Versus XIII is on hold are false," a Square Enix representative told European gaming site Eurogamer. "The truth of the situation is that when free, some staff from the Versus team have been helping with the XIII team on development of Final Fantasy XIII. Development for both titles is continuing as originally scheduled."
Though Square Enix has kept both FFXIII and FF Versus XIII on a tight chain, GameSpot's gleaned info can be found in prior coverage.

Resident Evil 5 Demo Early Next Year?

Perhaps surprisingly - although certainly not unfortunately - EA's Dead Space is already starting to rake in the high praise, and in the first review, it says "EA could teach Capcom a thing or three about survival/horror." Well, Capcom hasn't come forth with their next-gen effort yet...
It's not far off, though, and we may get a chance to play it sooner than you think. According to GameCenterOnline, the latest edition of GamesTM magazine states that Capcom will release a playable demo of Resident Evil 5 some time in early 2009. This would make our month if it dropped in January, especially if we're still on a survival/horror high from Dead Space. Unfortunately, the magazine didn't provide any additional details on this mystery demo, but we get the feeling it'll be something attendees may have seen at either E3 or TGS. Of course, it's one thing to see it and quite another thing to play it, which is why we'll be scanning about for any new information concerning a RE5 demo. Depending on how secret they want to be, Capcom is usually pretty good about clarifying rumors or vague announcements. So stay tuned on that.
Some fans were super disappointed that RE5 didn't make it out in 2008, but given the gigantic number of games on tap for the holiday season, could we even fit the damn thing in? Hell, we've already forgotten about Killzone 2; we have Resistance 2 in November; who wants both at the same time?! Too many games...not that we're complaining.

Other distinguishing features of the console include its large viewing screenม robust multi-media capabilities,[ and connectivity with the PlayStation 3, other PSPs, and the Internet.
Despite the console's considerable computing power and its formidable multimedia capabilities, sales have consistently lagged behind its main competitor, the Nintendo DS. After the release of a remodeled, slimmer, and lighter version of the PlayStation Portable, appropriately titled Slim and Lite, in early September 2007, sales quadrupled in the United Kingdom the following week and increased by nearly 200% in North America for the month of October.The PSP has faced stiff competition from the Nintendo DS, but remains the second most successful handheld console of its generation
