I just love Nintendo for its first-party games and because I believe they brought the video game market back after the crash in 1984. But I still appreciate the other hardware from time to time. :)

I have hard time getting things online. The inability to buy things at a store just makes this seem terrible. There is a reason I rarely download on the VC. Plus, its too expensive.

I'm getting one for Christmas, along side a DSi! I have never owned a PSP so this will be my first, and before you day get the 3000, I need it for the little storage that it will take up! My room probably looks like one of Corbie's, full of games. Plus I like having the current tech! Finally how long is the free Rock Band: Unplugged offer going on for? Please tell me!

castle: Do you know if it is going to end soon? If so I'll need to yell at my mom to get one for Christmas early! Also I think with Rock Band: Unplugged and 16 GB of memory that the PSP Go! is actually cheaper than regular PSP! Subtract $40 for Rock Band, then about $50 for the 16 GB's andyou have yourself at $10 cheaper than the PSP 3000!

Reala: Not literally :P What I meant was simply tell her that this offer would ened soon and it would be smart if she got my PSP Go while the offer was still going on if it is for a limited time only, which I still need confirmation on!

Nope.Apart from the fact that I could get a PS3 for about the same price,I don't particulary fancy a download only console as I quite like the idea of physical media so I can sell games I complete or don't like, Also it worry's me that the prices of these DL games will remain the same forvever as Sony will have a monopoly on price :O
i'm sure there's some great games on there but I've yet to see anything that couldn't be done on any other console or handheld so for me it has no USP. I don't want another media player I wanna play games!! :)

While store prices remain that is. When that stops will the same still happen?I hope so so but I'm still slightly dubious. Games I can download on my xbox are available in stores/online for ,in some cases, a lot less than what the DL costs and I can re-coup some of that money if i re-sell it. I like the idea of DL but there has to be competition for it to be of benifit to the consumer.

The PSPgo is an amazing system as long as you know what you're getting when you go into it. I think it's the best portable game system ever made, period! And I own just about every one of them. :)

And Nintendo is still my favorite video game company.

WHAT!!!!???? Have you temporarily lost your mind Corbmeister?? :D The best ever seriously? Hmmm not sure bout that meself but then I don't own one,have played on my mates quite a bit and I really hate the lack of a second analogue stick,it renders some games that could be great almost unplayable IMO.

Are you talking about the great games for the system that couldn't be done on any other platform, or it's media/graphics capabilities though? for me I've not seen one game that has made me want to purchase a PSP,and I'm usually quite easily tempted.What would you say the PSP's killer apps are? I would like one, but I'm not sure I could justify that outlay when a shiny new PS3 could be mine for around the same price.

I think the better question about Rock Band being included with the PSP GO is: Is it the full game? I saw a video posted by the same guy who did the unveiling video and it showed he was downloading and installing Rock Band Unplugged "Lite". So is the RBU game included a demo like Patapon 2?

@Bones00: Several online reviews that I have read indicate that the Rock Band game included with the PSP Go is only a demo and not the full game.

Seems like the better deal is the PSP 2000 or 3000 where you can get UMD and downloadables. I don't like the idea of only downloads controlled completely by the company, because I think price drops will take longer to happen (but would eventually happen, because once the games made, it makes more sense to sell more of it at lower prices than none at all). At this point, downloads for smaller, cheaper games like on WW and VC are fine, but I think online pricing needs to get more sophisticated (like on the app store where you can have price drops and such), before I'd be willing to switch to dl only.

I think what would be the best is if game developers had complete control over their pricing the whole time after the game is released, not just the initial price point (like on the app store...prices are so cheap there compared to on dsi or other dl services). 3rd party developers should have the ability to drop the price if they wish. By letting all the developers control their prices it would create a more competitive online marketplace. It would also allow prices to shift to the market. In theory, prices could go up if there was tons of demand, but more often, there would be a push to lower prices to make the games more competitive. Ninty or Sony might even end up making more in the end, because people would buy more games if prices dropped.
