    Sony Japan confirmed it has ceased production of the PSP Go and that all future sales will be limited to current stock.

    A Japanese report from Phileweb (translated by Andriasang) says the company has formally announced it is ending production of the digital-only handheld, confirming a rumor that surfaced yesterday from an alleged Sony Store employee. This will allow Sony to shift its focus to the NGP, which is expected to ship in at least one territory by the end of this year.

    The PSP Go first launched in 2009 for $250. IGN has contacted SCEA for a statement and will update this story if we hear back. [/p]

    It did not sell well at all.

    Well yeah, there are many haters for the Go. I don't hate it, infact I'm thinking of getting myself one, just because it'll become a "rare" piece of Sony in 1-2 years [​IMG]

    PSPGo is only a decent handheld with piracy. Otherwise you lose much of PSP's library, unfortunately.

    And for God's sake, a digital distribution hardware supporting only Wireless B type is preposterous.

    I'll buy one for a high LOW price! [/RE4merchant]

    Seriously, it doesn't seem so bad, but I dread that it'll be terribly unconfortable for long sessions of Monster Hunter Portable :/

    Might get one if they drop to 99€, though (still on a PSP1000! [​IMG]).

    PSP GO is now a collectors edition item. Pick them up before the price skyrockets.

    Some people (like me) likes to have a tangible copy of their games and without UMD support, I really can't buy it.

    I doubt the price will skyrocket. Generally the price of garbage tends to decrease.

    I had a PSP Go at one point.... I ended up returning it because it lasted like 2 hours maximum, was uncomfortable to hold, screen too small, non replacable tiny battery... yeah nothx.

    I don't mind my Go. Since it got hacked though it's a better system due to the fact that you can play all the games that aren't on the store, like MegaMan Powered Up.

    Here is your fate, PSPGo. You have done your purpose.
    Sony's new product must compensate for the Go's "failure."

    This isn't really a big surprise.
    Just looking at its poor sales made its destiny.

    I liked the PSP Go, it was a new Next step on how you buy games. It wasn't the best of it's Generation but it wasn't the of the worst Portable created.
