Default Will Dating Sim's/ Visual Novells come to PSP?

Well, will it? :P

I've been thinking, that it would be really smart idea to make Dating sims for PSP, that way it can be kept more secretly ... especielly if the game contains weird stuff such as ... Porn :O . Anyway's I think it would definetly sell if it came on PSP. What do you think?

The short answer is 'yes', with notable examples being Aquaplus's Comic Party, Routes and Kizuato (with all new chara designs - yet again).

The longer (and more accurate answer) is 'yes, but slowly'. None of the other makers have jumped onto the PSP bandwagon just yet. Sony's notoriously strict (yet gradually relaxing) policy on mature content is undoubtedly one potential reason, but I'm sure many are just sticking around to see whether the console (and associated renai game market) stands or falls before investing in it - something Aquaplus ought to have learned with Piece.

Apart from Leaf, it's said that Kid is also looking to port a couple of titles, notably something from the popular Memories Off series. There's also that School Rumble game, which could probably pass for renai in a pinch.

Question is, will the big hitters come out for PSP?

You know, Uwataremono, Kanon, Air, Tsukihime, Fate, Clannad, Planetarian, Suigetsu, and that new game from Key.

Or will they ditch PSP for the DS?

Considering all from that list save Air, Kanon, and the upcoming Clannad have not yet had a console port, I'd say it's highly unlikely that any of them would hit any portable format before a home console - much less a portable like the PSP.

In addition to AstCd2's answer, the PSP is currently host to ports of the Playstation's Yarudora series of games, which I suppose could also be considered part of the genre.

Personally, I think the Nintendo DS would be far more suited to the presentation of portable visual novel games - the bottom screen could be used to display text, the top screen could be for scenes and character sprites (or vice-versa, if the developers so choose), and By Their Powers Combined you could have some impressive looking vertical CGs.

...plus, I've already got a DS, and don't really feel inclined to shell out $250 on a glorified portable DVD player should developers decide it's a viable platform for the portable future of the genre. Although with the decent homebrew scenes that are springing up around both platforms, I wouldn't be surprised if a portable ONScripter somehow made it to one or both systems at some point.

Well, Tsukihime and Kagestu Tohya have been ported to the GBA(by fans), so I don't see any problem with it going to the DS.

btw, here's the link to the people who did it.

Gah, I want AIR Pocket so bad.

I'm aware of those fan-made ports (they've also done a Cross Channel, Kiminozo, and appear to be working on ToHeart 2 for - apparently - PSP and GBA/DS), I just assumed you meant official releases.

If there's enough fan support, they'll make official releases.

Well, at least for Tsukihime, KT, and Fate.

You may be using different definitions of "official". AFAIK there's no indication so far that Type-Moon are even considering releasing their games for any consoles, let alone portables.

Ack, slow indeed. By I think it's much more convinient to release such game to portables. If the homebrews were to be alowed I'd guess people would make some nice little hacks, as someone did with the Air game to en PocketPC.

It'll happen, sooner or later. But by spork, it will happen.

For a bit of relief for the guys who prepare to crack open their PSP's for modchippage; I belive the PSP has no Regional restriction.

Does that mean you can play imported games on US/European PSP's? I would love that if it were true...... *hopes*

Yes it is. I work at a fairly large electronic's chain in the US, and we even sell import PSP games are normal cost ($40-$60), though we've got a big red sign saying 'Import Game - All Text in Japanese' next to them.
