    Title says it all. Please to enjoy discussion. [​IMG]

    Edit: Sony has inexplicably raised the price back to $200. WTF.

    PSPgo: still probably not worth it.

    It's not perfect, but consider this. A PSP 3000 is $130 and comes with no mem stick. A go costs just $20 more and has 16 GB's built in. Sounds better doesn't it? [​IMG]

    For sony, it means they are getting ready to launch the NGP and clear out as much of the old stuff as possible.

    Considering you can just hack the PSP Go now, not bad.
    $150 for the system, AND the memory, and if you know what you're doing, all the games and homebrew you want.

    Well, with this the price difference between the 3000 and Go isn't as large, it's more of a viable option since the 6.x firmwares are getting better.

    Cool. Maybe I should pick one up, since it's easily hackable.

    Is spending $20 more to lose UMD support for 16GB of built-in memory worth it?

    That is only one of many in the list of F**K the user things that sony did with the PSP go

    Other things are:
    no UMD to digital downloads for US market, they renigged on this one.
    smaller screen.
    piss poor download selection
    piss poor digital equivalent of UMD game
    had to go and change external media to something smaller and more expensive.
    etc.

    They should cut the price to 50 bucks, now that would be fair...

    They could give it away for free and still lose to DS and it's derivatives in number.


    The NGP will probably call home and give you a what you did log whenever your online.

    Eh, still not too great of a price. It sounds cheap, but the original DS was $150 at launch. The PSP Go is kind of old now.
