I'm happy to see Sony (and others) finally starting to throw some weight behind the PSP. It's been a long time coming to see a lineup of titles like this come out, but I'm glad it's finally here. The only thing that seems out of place is the Petz series which seems to be aimed at a demographic that, by all rights, should not own expensive, fragile devices like the PSP. But I suppose that's for the parents to find out. It will be interesting to see how the sales numbers reflect the install base of kids with the handheld.
