The PSP will most likely fade over the next few years meaning the games will stop being made, which will most likley lead to no more PSP systems later on. The reason for this is people will be more focused on earning money off the PSV.

The PSP games will still be around awhile. Until people can assume that most gamers of at least a fraction own a Vita then they will stop making PSP games. Or almost completely stop.

no. they will still make games for PSP. but not as much games that will be translated and ported over to the west. I'm talking about those simulation games and games that requires a lot of japanese knowledge. 'cuz sony can still milk the cow. they're still making PS2 games, it's just that they aren't released in the west.

I think the psp still has a few more years left till sony discontinues it. Look at other sony consoles the ps1 came out in 1995 and the last game for it was in 2004 and it discontinued in 2006 the same year the ps3 came out. And there still making ps2 game over ten years after it came out, so i think psp will still be around for a few more years.

The PSP does not have a few more years for it, in the North American market this is likely the final year of support.

Yes. When Sony drop a product, they drop it hard (PSP Go, anyone?).
Some developers and publishers will continue to support the old system as long as there is a viable user base (ie money to be made). Sony will not release any first party titles for older systems when they are concentrating on maximising exposure to the new platform.
The 3000 has already been discontinued, and the E1000 is a cheap stop-gap - it's a cut-down model just to fill shelf space until the Vita is launched.
The market has changed over the last few years; hardware prices now drop faster and sooner after launch than ever before. Sony knows this, the consumers know this; there is no longer any benefit to the manufacturers in extending the life of an obsolete platform.

There's only two games scheduled for release on the PSP in the next six months. The PSP isn't quite ready to die, but it's being killed anyway.

I love my psp but i only think they'll be making new games for it after this year they're still going to make psp's because i know some people That want or just got one because for some reason they don't like the vita but after this year no more new games for psp.

i gurantee you the psp has at least 1-2 years left from making games for it to being supported... BUT once the psp is discontinued you can bet your butt you will still be able to download psone classics as the store will be updated i bet as well as mini games (once its discontinued i also think older psp games will slowly start showing up on psn just because money is money so the psn store wont completely be faded out thers still many loyal customers...)
anyway if you just bought a new one or sumthing dont worry chances are the next 2 years are bright for the psp its still one hell of a portable system

PSP began to fade away like 2 years ago. I have seen many who bought PSP and forgot it after 3 months. Only hardcore gamers are still hanging on to PSP but it will lose charm too since there are no new games coming up on PSP in the US. JAP constantly gets games but those games are 2D/3D RPG games.

In the US, there's only a few or so games left to be released, and then it's done.
In Japan, however..oh boy...they've got a massive list of unreleased PSP titles.
It's safe to say it's quite done in the US, probably for another year or so. Japan? I think they're far from done with the PSP.
