To further clarify what Token Girl is talking about for those who don't know, the App store is Apple's application store for the iPhone and iPod touch. Here's an example of the price difference for the same game despite possible differences: Hero of Sparta $1.99 on the App store, $6.99 for the PSP Mini version.

I'd rather save my money for Nintendo games. I'd be mad to get into PSP Go online games financially speaking. Sony technology has historically always been poor value for money and just dang too expensive

Thanks Bones, sorry if there was any confusion, but that was what I was referring too. Nintendo also raises the price for their iphone ports as well, so it's not just Sony who are being jerks on this. For example Asphalt 4 is $8 on DSiWare and only 99 cents on Apple's app store, and to the best of my knowledge, is pretty much just a direct port.

I am way too lazy to think of something clever.

Possibly, my wife was asking me about it the other day and we couldn't think of a reason really not to

I don't own a PSP at all, so it's not like I have any UMD's that'll be rendered useless.

I want to know though... is it more comfortable to hold? I had cramps in my hands playing my friend's PSP

Feel free to add me to any of the listed consoles or services here :D just let me know who you are!

The pspgo is very comfortable to hold and the rock band is actually a full version because I am not blocked from doing anything and I am already on the 5th tour in tour mode

So it is the full version of Rock Band Unplugged? Thanks I needed to know that, I'll be glad to get my PSP Go from what I've heard on this website or from people who aren't reviewers! The PSP Go looks very comfortable from what I've seen, especially after playing on a Game Gear a couple of times

So I'm guessing that if I had the opportunity to get a new one for 210 tax inclusive, I should jump on it? Even if I have a library of 7 umd games and 4 movies i don't watch that will be invalidated?

Not me. Just not interested in it. It might be a great system but I am not much for handhelds.

The game gear's not uncomfortable, it's just heavy and eats batteries. I actually liked that it was a little bigger though, the dsi is too thin and gives me hand cramps sometimes (especially when holding with one hand and using the stylus with the other). That's with my small girl hands too. I think if I had giant man-hands the dsi would cause me major problems.

I don't have giant man hands. Can you believe I have boney hands? Anyway, the PSP Go was comfortable from what I remember when I was able to hold it at PAX. I'm not convinced enough to buy one. Personally, I'm going to wait until the inevitable next model with twice as much or more flash memory and maybe a lower price. I have a PSP 2000 and I'm not missing anything from a Go. There's only a few features we can't use and one of which is the pause feature. Part of me actually kind of enjoys trying to beat that level on Prinny to save before my battery dies. If it lasts until I finish that level, I'll have less lives but if my battery dies, I'll have more lives as I've played and become better at that particular level. Plus I'll switch out batteries and not have to wait for my PSP to charge.

Yes, I can. I guess it's just personal preference. I just get a little fangirly when it comes to the game gear...so much love.

Definitely. I wish I still had my Game Gear. Lost a lot of gaming stuff 4 years ago.

Bones00: What Happened to them. As for anybody who owns a PSP prior to the go, I understand why you wouldn't want one, but for a newcomer it just seems second nature to me!

@Supermarioman I lost a lot of my gaming stuff when I had to evacuate my home state because of a hurricane in August of '05. I saved what I could then had started to buy a lot of the stuff I had lost again. People who come over think it's weird that I have so many games unopened but I try to tell them how I lost them previously and bought them again for my collection.
