Is it just me or lately when glancing at the main pspupdates page it seems as if the "quality" of homebrew is catching up to and passing some of the latest offerings from offical Sony PSP developers?
For example, Quake II is getting more and more polished and it won't be long before the original maps are working with it.
And right below that story comes the latest from Konami and it's a silly slap-dash-together compilation of Gradius games?
I mean, what the fsck are some of these official devs thinking? I KNOW someone working on PSP game development in a major publisher is glancing at this page and I hope to God they are thinking to themselves "we are making pure, unadulterated crap" or at least "we need to better".
Seriously, though, amid the silly "compiliation of 80s hits" and pieces of garbage like "Dead to Rights" it looks like freeware homebrew is actually stomping the crap out of most of the recent commerical offerings. Now, granted there are gems out there like Grand Theft Auto and SOCOM, but I think everyone here is getting more play out their SNES/Genesis/SMS/GB emulators along with the recent "advanced ports" like Quake I & II, Doom, Heretic, and the new Iris work-in-progress.
What, because everyone here likes the "old-school" gameplay on the older console emulators that companies like Konami and Midway think we'll all rush out and buy their silly compilations?
Umm, no. That's what MAME is for on a variety of platforms.
Wake the fsck up commercial PSP developers and make something GOOD, because "decent" just isn't cutting it anymore.
