    Meh.

    It seems to me that Sony is nowadays specialized in making their products less and less appealing as the time passes.

    I mean, can't change batteries?! WTF.

    Indeed, a mega WTF. The least they could've done is what Nintendo has done with the Nintendo DS, and just make it so you need to unscrew a panel to get access to the battery...

    Hopefully this doesn't mean Sony will do this with the PSP 4000 when it comes out too...

    Do people actually want one of these instead of a previous model?

    The controls still look awful.

    I hope the PSP Go gets hacked.
    I see many people at gamestop buyin PSP games, the "pirate" community is rather small maybe a few thousands.
    It really shouldn't matter that much, if the games are not being sold is cause they are lame.
    I will pay for some of the new games on the PSP Go since I'm getting one but only the ones I find I like which is probably just socom 3.
    Havent used my PSP in a while and havent even bother playing that final fantasy game that was leak because
    I'm not that interested.
    You can't loose money if the person was never going to buy a game in the first place.

    Would be a big piss off if KhBBS is only going to be for PSP go.

    Why would you think that its going to the PSPGo? PSPGo doesn't get exclusive PSP games.

    The next thing they'll do is to stop people from the US from making Japanese PSN accounts. I currently have one so I can get DLC for Idolmaster SP.

    Maybe next time they'll design a battery that CAN'T BE REPROGRAMMED.

    Sony have screwed the PSP brand, there's no real incentive to get a PSP Go.
    It can download retail-umd games from the PSP Store? So what? The PSP-2000 can download retail-umd games for free, guess which one I'd buy?

    I hope no one buys the PSP Go, so Sony learns from the epic fail that it is. Although it looks awful, I'm not going to jump to conclusions and say it is. Surely Sony isn't that stupid.

    Lots of hate for the Go here.

    I actually really want one. I dont really know why but it just appeals to me.

    It also doesn't help that my phat is dying slowly but surely.

    ^The quote got me thinking: How does the PSPGo even know you legitimately bought the game anyway? Couldn't you just put an iso on the PSPGo and play it that way?

    It would be a good feature if the psp could rip umds and digitally sign them so they only work on that psp. Also no umd slot so firmware doesn't matter for ripping.

    Media Go allows for the backup of official PSP games (if you own the UMD).

    Lost me at the price to begin with I could get a Xbox at that price expecally since the DSi is 80 dollars cheaper.Not hackable what about Chick-Hen eventually something like that will work on the GO so no battery hack just means more time that hackers spend on hacking the software meaning psp 3K hacked alot faster, and media go sounds really expliotable put games on Go or write homebrew to iso and use that to install CFW.This also better mean high quality battery that holds twice the charge of normal psp.
