I couldn't find the original PSP Go thread so I started a new one...

Well anyway, What do you think of it? I thought it was a STUPID move by sony.

Good things:
Downloadable games
Bluetooth

Bad things:
No UMD
No second Analog stick
The shape

Go here for the article from IGN. http://psp.ign.com/articles/988/988431p1.html

I was hoping for a new PSP, because I was going to buy one, but Sony ruined it. Why?

The should of Made this... (with UMD, of course)

Hooray, more complaints before Sony can actually announce the thing at E3. That video on Qore barely shows us anything. It'd be so easy to wait 24 hours and find out more at their E3 presentation. No telling what kind of games they'll have for it besides LBP and that racing game or how the download service will work exactly.

Come on, friends,

Don't get me wrong, I really like the PS3, PS2, and the original. Including the orginal PSP (I was going to buy one actually.) But from What we already know, I can tell its going to be a failure. The Sony Mylo called, and it wants its 2006 design back.

We don't know hardly anything, really. Just how it looks and that it is going to be based on downloads instead of discs. That's really not enough to condemn a platform for.

Because otherwise the controller feels like an oddly formed Dreamcast.

I'm giving Sony the benefit of the doubt. I'm waiting for the full story tomorrow at E3. Sony said that its still going to support the PSP along with the PSP Go. So, I guess UMD isn't quite dead yet.

I don't see the reason for two analogs for handheld games. No one complains about the DSi's lack of analog, and it doesn't even have one. The lack of UMD might be disappointing for backwards compatibility, but it has a huge hard drive and room for expansion, so developers should have no problem working with this for future titles, and some of the best titles out now are already available in digital form, too.

My thought is... this is Sony's attempt at a DSi. Can't do the clamshell, though. That would be a tip-off. So you get the slider instead. Game cartridges don't sit well with their players. (Sony has spent significant time convincing them that optical media is superior.) So damn the torpedoes and pour on the downloadable games!

In the end, I'm sure it will be just like the PSP: a valiant try, but lacking any spark of true genius. It will be half-supported in the market and gamers will have a love/hate relationship with it.

How is this Sony's attempt at DSi? The only similarity is downloadable content, and the PSP did that before the DSi.

I don't think people will want to have to buy all their PSP games all over again. Especially if the their old one broke or something.

They can sell the games. Or they could just, you know, get a PSP-3000. The Go is like the DSi in one way: It's aimed more at people who haven't already bought one more than those who already have a PSP or DS. Just like most who bought the original PSP didn't also buy a 3000, and DS users didn't all go out and get a Lite; yet both models outsold their predecessors, I believe (the Lite surely did).

Yes, instead of getting a Go, people of only going to get a older version. And people who can't find a wifi spot are screwed. I don't think theres a good reason to get a PSP ga...I mean Go.

If you don't already have a PSP, there is every reason to get a Go. And if you already have one but don't mind trading in your games for digital versions, the convenience of having every game instantly accessible without having to tote them around in a bag or what not is a huge reason to get it. For me, this makes portable gaming actually portable again. When I had my DS Lite and original PSP, I had too many games to carry them around conveniently.

Also, wi-fi spots are everywhere. That's a horrible excuse.

I don't think looking in a bag is a huge reason to get one. I rather have my games physically. So that way you can let your friend borrow it or trade games. And when you go places, you wouldnt carry every game you own. Just a couple. And, if your Go gets stolen, you loose all your games. Whereas if your PSP-3000 gets stolen, you only loose the game thats in it (unless you have all games together).

Sure Wi-fi spots are everywhere, but I know people sometimes have trouble getting it. Yeah, you could go somewhere else that has connection, but while your at it you can go to Gamestop and get a UMD.

I would like to count on my system not being broken or stolen. I'm not careless enough for either to happen. Also, "looking" in a bag isn't the problem; toting a bag is. It's much more convenient to have just one item that fits in your pocket and nothing else. If you're playing in a plane, bus, or somewhere else constrictive on the go, you don't want to have to carry anything unnecessary or worry about dropping a tiny cartridge / disc in the process.

Whether it appeals to you particularly isn't specifically important since you seem to have one already. If you still have the normal PSP, there's no reason to be dissatisfied. But the new one opens up the PSP to more potential users, so I'm all for that.

That's exactly why I might be interested in this one. The UMDs always seemed a bit silly to me. Plus, loading from memory is probably faster and less taxing on the battery, too. I'm looking forward to learning more about its features tomorrow.
