    User Nightfall on Gametrailers has posted up come images that are apparently the PSP Go! The images look real, but it could always be a render. Judge for yourself, he claims the images are from the latest issue of Qore which is yet to be released.

    Something that has always bothered me about the PSP is the fact that the screen is unprotected, not like in the DS. Clamshell design is the way to go, if you ask me. And yes, it doesn't look too good, IMO.

    That analog stick looks as comfortable as ripping my own thumb off [​IMG]

    Where do you see "protection of the screen" in this thing?

    Ew. I hope this isn't it. Look at how close everything is mashed together. It looks like something only a baby could play.

    I hope this is fake, I'd like a PSP that doesn't hurt to play. Can't say the speaker holes fill me with delight either.

    There are too many stories and images by now about it, so, I don't think it's a fake.

    I'm curious about the game distribution method, apparently it doesn't have an UMD drive, so.. will every game be distributed online only?

    If the price is around the same as the current model and if we can get every game from the PSP library online for a cheaper price.. I'm considering getting one.

    I don't like the button layout of this psp. It seems the buttons are way to low and a bit close together which would make playing it rather uncomfortable and the grooves/grips on the back are just as useless since they are aligned with the centre of the psp and not where you would hold the psp if you were to play. Also the analog is a bit far so you might have to stretch your thumb a bit just to reach it.

    Nowhere. Re-read my post. See why I'm complaining about it now?

    btw.. a few days ago we got that "PS3 Slim" rumor.. with these pictures:

    The PSP on the box is exactly like the one we have here.. and the PS3 and PSP boxes have the same design.

    Hence, this pretty much confirms the PS3 Slim [​IMG]

    I'm not really suprised, sony do have a habit of slimming the next version of their consoles, look at the ps2 and psp for example they both have a slim version

    No way, it looks distressing to hold and extremely uncomfortable to reach all the buttons

    And just to put the last nail in the coffin:



    - New Metal Gear Solid and Gran Turismo coming
    - 3.8" screen
    - 43% lighter than previous version
    - 16 Gig memory
    - Bluetooth support
    - No UMD
    - Downloads games and movies


    So, this is either real or an extremely well elaborated fake [​IMG]

    Didn't see any camera on it. except it on the back of slide screen.

    Would be great if it has one with high resolution.

    I REALLY hope this is fake. It looks like shit, I don't mind the sliding screen, the analog is an an awful position. plus there's only one. Looks like it'd be odd to hold also..

    Here's my take on it

    -fugly beyond belief (I can deal with this since even an ugly looking handheld can be epic)

    -Downloadable games is good if the cost isn't too bad however with all the good stuff being Japanese and region locks it's 100% certain that a Japanese PSP Go will be in my hands if I choose to get one.

    -I would like some full specs on this machine (It's a must look)

    -The more these new systems are unveiled, the more I feel that 100% import only gaming is starting to creep up on me. The good games are just not being released here and it's not fair for the masses, sure there are people who want to import such as myself, but there are many other who don't. It's not getting any better because currently only 15% of games bought by me are localized dead serious. Seriously, Sony and Nintendo of Japan for America and Europe's sake address this atrocity now and the US need to make more RPGs and less "hardcore games" and lay off the shovelware.

    Pretty sure it's real.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    It looks pretty ugly, tbh. I'll need to see what the price is and if it can be hacked (CFW) before I decide if I want one or not.
