Ready At Dawn Head Says PSP Was "Doomed From Beginning"

This has to hurt. As a hardware manufacturer, it's never good to hear a developer criticizing your system. However, it's a little bit worse when said developer has made some of the best games in the system's history, all of which were based on your first-party franchises.

That's just what's happened to Sony and the PSP, which is looking more and more like a system on death's door given all the rumors of a PSP2 circulating.

In an interview with Edge magazine, Ready at Dawn (the studio behind God of War: Ghosts of Sparta, God of War: Chains of Olympus, and Daxter for PSP) founder Ru Weerasuriya said that the handheld system was "doomed from the beginning."

He goes on, "There are some things which aren't conductive to calling it a true portable gaming platform and calling it a connective platform, although it has wi-fi."

However, Weerasuriya does mitigate these remarks by saying "it's a good platform and you can make some amazing things on it" and holds out hope that Sony will learn from its mistakes in creating the PSP2.
