Super Robot Wars Z2-Why is it in PSP?

Coming this April 2011, the first of a two-parter of the Super Robot Wars Z2 story! The title for the first chapter is called "Hakai Hen" or Break Barrier/Wall Saga which is the indication of a super big crossover with multipte universes! (It's all in a day's work for these guys!)

This time around, we have 11 new series that join the original cast of the first Z story- The new series are as follows:
1) Armored Troopers Votoms
2) Mobile Suit Gundam 00 (Season 1)
3) Shin Mazinger Z
4) Chikyu Bouei Kigyou Dai-Guard
5) Code Geass (Season 1)
6) Tengen Toppan Gurren Lagann
7) Macross Frontier (Movie Edition)
8) Eureka 7 (Movie Edition)
9) God Mars
10) Dancouga Nova
11) Trider G-7

The last three series has appeared in NDS and PS1 but this is the first time they appeared in High Quality and Voice included for them.

That's not all! Including the original line-up of SRW Z, we have 30 series in all for this one! The biggest line-up for this time around!  Many fans will be happy now that most of the series are from the newer shows of 2000s like Gundam 00, Code Geass (Yeah!) and Gurren Lagann (Finally!)

The interaction will be crazy as the game will take us from the space battles of Votoms, the desert land of Gurren Lagann, the alternative universe of Code Geass and the MS battles of Gundam 00! There will be probably hints for Code Geass and Gundam 00 who share a common plotline of Jupiter and Kamia showed what does it means by drilling the heaven and beyond to the child pilots like Renton and Simon.

Of course being a first parter means we won't see Double 0 Gundam, Gurren going Giga size, Alto getting Super Armored Valkryie until the next chapter which will come later of the year.

Now for myself personally, I am happy that a new SRW is coming out but why is it in PSP?! I mean if the cast is so huge, wouldn't be better that it will be PS3 with it's blu-ray storage? Furthermore is in 2 parts?! Come on, Banpresto! You can do better than that!

Anyway, enough yapping and hope they can do an OG3 on PS3 for this year and can we have a toku-like SRW game for PS3? I mean this year the three big toku giants (Ultraman, Super Sentai and Kamen Rider) are having their anniversay specials. Shouldn't be something be done and please no Wii!
