Portable Software to Soar?

Video Game Journal’s clairvoyant analysts Jason Fraft and Chris Kwak have pulled out their runes, tea leaves, and crystal balls and made some predictions as to what some game publishers can expect to rake in over the next 4 years. According to the future-telling skills of Fraft and Kwak, “portable software revenue could grow over 140%”.
Some of this is thanks to the prominence of the PSP and DS on the market, and the fact that these games (especially on the PSP side) are so darned expensive. All is not peachy for the PSP though, “PSP sales could take a hit when PS3 and Nintendo Revolution launch. Sony will need to make PSP an extension of the PS2/PS3; otherwise, the PSP will be another console-like device and Sony risks cannibalizing PSP with the PS3.”

The PS3 might want to have some Tums on hand for that meal…
