What about people who own a bunch of UMD games? Are they out of luck with this system if they upgrade?

I hate Sony for saying on E3 it will ship in Europe and NA for the same price:
$250 and 250€.
Well that's not the same price. Like always we Europeans get screwed over. $250 are 175€ not 250€.
250€ are $357. Luckily I don't intend to buy this PSP since I still got my PSP 1000 which I don't play anymore since about a year but probably I'll get LittleBigPlanet for PSP since my PS3 broke right before I wanted to buy LBP for it...

So:
Up your's Sony for letting us Europeans pay 75€ / $107 more.

I'm sick of it that all the American companies are to stupid or just to greedy to realize that 1€ is not $1 but ca. $1.42 That may not seem that big of a difference but like you can see with the PSPgo those 42ct*250=10500.... 105$ more. Ok it's not just Sony, every company does that. Microsoft does it. Nintendo does it. Well even freaking washing machine manufactuers do it.

Sorry but I had to get that off my chest.

Nontheless the PSPgo is nice but I just don't like the games the PSP has to offer...

Probably getting a Vita with LBP soon...

Four? Geez, I thought there were 3. Oh well.

I'm barely even aware that the thing is still on the market most of the time, let alone that they've already had more than one iteration of the hardware before this... Okay, I might have known that they had redesigned it once, like a few months after it first came out or something like that. I seem to remember hearing that the thing used to have this problem where it would projectile vomit out the UMD if you look at it funny.

Like the DSi (even though that does still take regular DS games) it seems that this should be treated as an entirely separate platform from the original, not a replacement / upgrade. You buy it specifically FOR the downloadable games and nothing else. You hold onto the other one for the other stuff.

Is it true that you can use a Playstation 3 Sixaxis controller with the PSPgo? - Yes. Since the PSPgo is bluetooth compatible, this makes it compatible with the Playstation 3 console's Sixaxis controller.

Well, that's spiffy and all, but it seems to me that it kind of defeats the point of making a portable system if you're going to have to prop it up somewhere so you can use a separate controller. Or are they going to whip up some sort of clunky clip thing to attach them together somehow?

Anyway... I'd have to wait and check out what's available on either platform before making a final decision, but personally I think I'll opt for the DSi whenever I finally have money to spare for a platform like this.

I will be getting the white one as well. Is there any way that I can get the games that I already downloaded on my old psp to the go.

UMD games obviously cannot be used on the Go, but if you are strictly talking downloaded games, yes, you can transfer them to the Go. Put them on a memory stick or just redownload them once you get it. So long as you are using the same PSN ID, you won't have to pay for them. If you are selling your old PSP, deactivate that PSP first so the new owner does not have access to your account. There should be an option somewhere (I don't have a PSP) to remove your account from that system.

Come on, friends,

Sony has said that they'll have a way to deal with the UMD games that PSP owners already own, but so far they haven't laid it out as to how it will be handled. I too am curious, since I own over 50 PSP games currently. :)

Those Minis are the launch titles, so-to-speak, unless I'm misunderstanding what you're asking about? If you're talking about downloadable UMD titles, the way Sony has talked, the majority of UMD titles will be available for download on launch day.

Here's another good picture up close of the PSPgo. The more I see the white model, the more I'm glad that I preordered it.

UMD slot was removed, the Memory Stick Duo slot was replaced with a Memory Stick Micro slot. The screen is a 3.8" screen instead of the usual 4.3" screen of the regular PSP. The USB cable will be different, although one is included with the PSPgo. The PSPgo also has 16GB of flash ram built-in for storage.

Nice choice in color Corbie. I would get one, but I still need to get a DSi first.

I rule when it comes to games. So deal with it.

@castlehominid999..... at the moment all I know of that is releasing that isn't a Minis is Motorstorm Artic Blast PSP and that isnt a bad thing if its anywhere near as good as the PS3 versions it will be a blast.

@Corbie.... nice choice in color. Im sticking with my 2000. I cant justify the price of the Go. I just picked up Arkham Asylum and The Force Unleashed PS3 so Im a little spent, but I will be downloading so Minis ASAP. Cant wait either.

Woah there, I think you mean 16GB of internal flash memory, not ram. 16 GB ram would be insanely awesome since most computers don't have that (my clunker has 512MB RAM) .o__o The PSP Go actually has 64 MB of ram if Wikipedia is to be believed and that's still pretty amazing right there (Wii has 88 MB of ram, DS has 4 MB, DSi has 16MB). This monster retains the 64MB of the 2000 and 3000 it appears.

Well some refer to it as Flash RAM, but I did mean flash memory, not CPU ram.

Wow, this comes out the day before my birthday.

Anyways..I most likely won't be getting it any time soon after it's released (Not for $250). 2 things that I would have liked for it was a 2nd analog and for it to be made in such a way as to keep its screen protected, like ds or GBA sp. I don't like that you can't use the old SD cards.

Edit- It is nice that it has that much built-in memory though.

I think the thing I'm most excited about is the PSP Minis. I hope this service produces some great indie games.

The PSP Go is a really nice looking system, and since I don't own a PSP I wouldn't mind eventually getting one. But a $250 price tag for a portable system is pretty high.
