Ok, Adam I guess your right but, It looks like no new features were added to the thing. And its $250. I could buy a Nintendo Wii or a 360 with that cash.

Yea, that is an absurd price. I might see if I can get an old PSP used and cheap so I can play the new Metal Gear, then trade it in. Both handhelds have so many games I am somewhat interested in, but nothing huge to push me over the edge considering their priceyness.

IMO, if you have a PSP already, like me, you DO NOT NEED THIS, the PSP 1000/2000/3000 can do everything that the the PSP Go can do, except for that Bluetooth Earpiece thing. But apart from that, unless you're a late customer to the PSP, you really don't need it.

I didnt notice much to entice people to buy it either. I really wanted to wait for it to come out and get it, but I think I'm just gonna get a 3000. Especially since the price of a Go is gonna be 250 :O

The word "Gem" is overused.

Yeah the $250 price tag was a bit of a thud. I might pick one up at some point, but I'll just stick with my 3000 for the time being.

Don't forget that it can't run homebrew - the only reason I would get a PSP in the first place (apart from Patapon and LocoRoco)

Since I don't have a PSP I was ready to buy the PSP Go, that is until I heard about the price. Sorry but no thanks. I think I'll just invest in a PSP 3000 instead.

I am excited about it...but the price is very steep IMO. The design isn't great but it seems to work, I would preferred the clam shell like the DS/DS Lite/DSi.

Good Things:
No limitations on stock, no limitations on when you can purchase. With online downloads, the store is open 24/7/365.
Carry all your games with you on a memory card.
You can virtually find any game, barring they have added it to the store.
The new design seems more fitting for a handheld.
Definitely lighter
Downloadable movies

Bad Things:
No more used games, you pay full retail, and for that matter you can no longer trade in old games.
Limited 16 Gb onboard storage, exandable...And you have to use proprietary Sony cards, no going to tigerdirect.com to purchase a 32 Gb SDHC for 25$.
You have to re-purchase your entire library for digital versions.
Unlike the DS/DSlite/DSi clamshell, it looks like the design would yield itself more flimsy.
Sony, from what I read, will now put all their PSP titles online, definitely correct me if I am wrong, but from what I read, no more UMD games.
Your UMD movie collection will not work with the system.

I agree mostly with your list, but how is it bad the Sony will put all their titles online...? Sounds great to me. Much more convenient in every way, as your Good Things list points out.

Also, UMD movies are a rip-off in the first place. Portable DVD players are not expensive anymore, especially when you consider if you use a PSP as a portable movie player, you will be on a smaller screen and have to buy separate copies of the movies you want to watch on the go.

Plus, Sony already mentioned plans to offer music and video downloads. I don't know if they specifically mentioned movies, but it's possible. PS3 already does it. Of course, you wouldn't want to get too many at once on the PSP's comparatively small hard drive, but it'd be good for rentals, which are more practical on a portable anyway.

And can't you run movies from the memory card? Couldn't you somehow rip them then run them on the go?

There you go. Sony is working on a UMD solution for those of you who cite this as your major complaint. Pretty good news, though the price tag is still a much larger barrier to me.

Yeah, the price point is a tad bit high, especially seeing that all those downloads will be available to the older PSPs as well. So, let's just say I'd want one of the older ones: 2000 or 3000? I've read on numerous occasions that the 2000's screen is actually supposed to be better looking than the 3000's. Is that true?

According to GAME's site (the video game retailer in the UK), the price over here is £220 ish.

Seems that Sony learnt nothing.

Please no "Destroy This!" gags, please.
