    Woooooooooow, that's desperate.
    But it doesn't matter how many free games they offer, you can get an older PSP for cheaper, and then get all the free illegal games you want.

    they aughta give the deal to everyone instead of screwing early adopters (like how dsi early adopters got screwed when dsi-xl came around the corner)

    You're right, they're actually punishing anyone stupid enough to buy a PSP Go!

    I don't agree about the DSi XL thing though, XL's not for everyone, it's just a larger version and nothing more.

    well I woulda rather had the dsi-xl, and the xl price is only slightly higher than the dsi, but the trade-in value I'd have to pony up 90 fucking bucks. Thus, rape

    That's an interesting deal. If the games are really good (not just some old junk) I might get one. I hate UMD's, but I'd like a PSP to play some of the few good games.

    It's a neat deal for people that don't want to buy an older PSP and pirate games, or who want a newer model to keep with the times (I know some people that have to have the newest of everything). I would do it if I had money to spare, but I don't. It's not worth $250 of my own money, even with this deal. Current owners are getting lucky though, since they get it as well (Well, the ones who registered their Go's after April 1st...).

    I'd rather introduce the PSP Go to a brick.

    Not a bad deal if you don't want to pirate. People far too often look from things from a pirate's prospective (which most of the time means one eye, the other being covered with an eye patch [​IMG]). The average consumer doesn't see "OH LOOK I CAN HACK THIS AND PIRATE GAMES", they look at the best deal. If they brought the price down to $200 with this deal it might work. And if they start offering good sales on games and maybe even the occasional free game, it'd be awesome.

    I'll say time and time again downloadable games and services need to be like Steam.

    I go to my Buddhist Temple, and I see a 5 year old with DSi XL, and watch him attempt to fit it in his hands. [​IMG]

    the pspgo was a bad idea for it not having umd's.. and it still isn't hackable so I choose the phat and early 2000 slim model over this [​IMG]

    Wow, this shows just how desperate Sony is to move some PSPGo units... not exactly something you'd do for a system whose sales are (in their own words from not that long ago) "in line with expectations".

    Can't they just admit this farce was a miserable failure, and let the idea of a 100% digital catalogue just die for another generation or two? The it all goes digital is the day console gaming dies, IMO... at that point you may as well just publish every game for the PC, and distribute it over Steam or some other service that actually does it well.

    What a kick in the crotch for those of us who already cashed in on the first deal. We only got three games. [​IMG]
