    If this is true, i may actually consider getting a GO.

    i'd rather have it it could transfer your UMD games to the internal storage.

    Why? Thats just dumb. Might as well as just get a regular PSP then. Its cheaper and it can run your umds without looking like a clunky brick. The possibility for some downloadable game shouldn't be enough to warrant the huge price tag. Its not like the games are cheaper. There not even coming out on the same day from what I heard with little big planet.

    psp go=disaster

    Price has gone down to £140 in UK and the UMD add-on would essentially make it a regular PSP just with the added extras, I don't care about size as bigger is always better [​IMG]

    UMD or no UMD the controls are worse than before, had a play on one in store at Game. There still isn't a reason for a Go, which is why says of PSP 3000 have increased and beat it.

    That's maybe the dumbest idea ever. Play your UMD titles on a smaller screen, using a vastly inferior analog nub, yeah that sounds great. Not to mention that PSP Go actually has worse batter life than the UMD models. I'm sure this device will make things even worse.

    Call me when you can do the monster hunter claw on PSP Go. Until then PSP Go, GTFO

    Well this would be good for the people who have UMD's and stupidly bought a PSP Go

    PSP 2000 = ok (i still think psp 3000 is unnecesairy for psp2000 owners to get) (but for new owners its cool)
    psp slim = great
    psp go = bleckh

    DS Phat = ok
    DSlite = great
    DSi = great

    Wasn't the point of having a Go to be RID of the UMD slot?

    Besides, even if an add-on was released, Sony would need to program compatibility for it in the firmware -- which isn't happening because the main staple for PSP Go is the fact that it doesn't need UMD discs.

    I have a Go, and I love it. Moreso than the PSP Slim. I actually enjoy it when I cannot pirate on it [​IMG]

    I appreciate Logitech's efforts but I'm not gonna pay extra for something it should already have.

    The PSP Go is the virtual boy of this generation.

    PSPgo + UMD Add-on = Pricey
    PSP 2000 = Not Pricey

    What's the point...? The PSP 2000 is clearly cheaper and is hackable =]

    Well if the UMD Add-on could get homebrew somehow through a game then it's all good [​IMG]
