The only mech game I know of for the PSP is Armored Core Formula
Front, which is nothing like mechwarrior/mechassult/btech

That would probably be Armored Core. Rumor has it they're doing an English
conversion.

I beta tested one not too long ago, SLAI Phamtom Crash. I was not
impressed with it at all. Not into the whole Mech thing either though.
But it was lacking in alot of ways...graphics, levels, etc..

Go to http://gamerankings.com
Use the advanced search there, search for Mech or something. Should find
it if the one above is not what you where looking for or thinking of.

Forget what the heck I just wrote...I thought we were talking PS2, soon
as I hit send I saw the PSP thing ;)  Still could likely find the
info/game at that site though.

It is Armored Core, but its not really a game. All you can do it design and
create mechs and then look and them in various sceneries and take snapshots
of them. You don't actually play anything that is combat related like other
mech games. Aparrently this type of game is huge in Japan, I doubt it'll do
well in the Americas. However, some people will probabaly buy it expecting a
combat based mech game and be disapointed.

The demo I watched had combat. And I pray its not Armor Core, even though
everyone likes it I find it lacking as a "Mech" game.

Yes, Japan has games that are a different flavor then the US, based on
cultural differences, an example is, they have video games where all you do
is run around and talk to people. No combat, no nothing. They also have
games with extreme adult themes. I think "video game" porn would sell like
hot cakes in the US but it has been avoided like the plague. But in the US
if you can splatter somethings brains or wreck it, it doesnt seem to sell
well ;)

With good reason: the ESRB would give any such game an "AO" rating, and
Sony has never approved an AO-rated game for the PS2 (and likely won't do
so for the PSP, either). Same goes for Nintendo for the GameCube/GBA/DS,
and Microsoft for the Xbox.

This is probably because of the perception that video game consoles are
"marketed for children", despite the video game player demographic
gradually skewing older over the past few years.

err.. you do know that the same AC game (formula front) for the PSP
also came out for the PS2 right? and it most definitely IS a mech
combat game. There are some definite differences. ie: you no longer
have missions, and you don't have to BUY anything, it's pure
customization now. However, the arena combat remains.

Shows what you know, I've actually seen a demo of the game too and I've read
all about it, it has no combat that the player controls, you customize your
mech then you see a short video clip of simulated combat, the palyer never
controls the mech.

Having played many incarnations of Armored Core I can tell you that you do
get to control the Mechs. A big part of the game is customizing them but
there are also many missions to play.

Here is a review of the most recent PS2 incarnation:

Yes, I have played Armored Core games before too, but the PSP one is
different.
They had a preview in the January Official Playstation Magazine, I'm pretty
sure they said it didn't have combat, just combat video clips.
