    The PSP Go. I don't think it's going to be a big hit.. You can't play UMD's on it, you have to download them off the PlayStation store. Tough luck for young gamers that have parents think its stupid to buy things online - My parents are like that lol - I think Sony should give up on making portable consoles and think on the PS3, like a big hit it was [​IMG].

    I'm well sure people will disagree [​IMG]

    It won't be great hit I think, but this will happen;
    Kid; Daddy, I need your creditcard number for my PSP.
    Daddy fills it in.

    I don't think that the PSP GO is supposed to be aimed at the younger market its aimed at more like the 16 > adult market where most will have jobs that will pay for the download content [​IMG]

    I really don't understand the PSP Go, like what on earth were Sony thinking

    Its a waste of time, money, and basically everything else. Sales wont be that impressive, more time should have been displaced in the PS3 instead of this.

    I don't think Sony should leave the handheld market because the PSP is a really nice system. They just need to be more sympathetic of the consumer. Is this thing worth $249? Hell no. Will I get one? Not this year for sure.

    My PSP phat is more import friendly than the PSP Go, the Go looks good, the format is superb, but it's iffy and rushed in the realm of gaming and it's trying and failing at mimicking the DSi. It may be a hit for new PSP owners but the older ones should keep their current PSP or wait until the PSP2 is made.

    I guess in japan they will all buy this thing (as always with Coloured PS2 and so japanese seem to love this [​IMG] ) but here in germany for example (i dunno how it is in other countries) i see the problem that the PSN Shop simply have no games it´s next to nothing so first they should handle this then make the PSP GO cheaper (the price is really ridicoulus and a rip off as usuall $ony) and then they will sell this stuff

    I want slap people when they talk about the GO..."but, but...I can't use my UMDs!!!"....YOU DON'T HAVE TO BUY ONE!!!! All models will work just fine with the PSN Store, they will be able to download the same games. It's being sold ALONG SIDE with the 3000.

    PSP Go will also have a smaller screen than the current PSP has. 250$ is way too steep price for me. If the price goes down and they manage to hack the FW I might buy one, one day.

    It may look damnright ugly, but if it's true that it has as much power as the XBOX and good games come out for it, I may get one after a price drop. But then again, that might take several years...

    With a smaller screen and no UMD, it should be CHEAPER to produce, not more. Common sense tells you this. Unfortunately, people in the world are losing their common sense at an alarming pace and will sucker for Sony's latest money-making scheme.

    It has a smaller screen then the original PSP, way to go Sony. As for the paying for downloads, somebody'll hack it soon for sure. [​IMG]

    Haha. Yeah. On the current PSP models, not the PSP Go. Obviously, the PSP Go hasn't been hacked yet.

    I think that the PSP is a console that could have last a few more year, I really expected it to raise in popularity what with all thesegreat new games coming out and I thought that the PSP Go could really give the DS a run for its money. It could even give the next Nintendo handheld competition as I'd doubt that would be that much more powerful (or even match it).

    Sadlythe button and control set up looks worse than the original PSP to me. There is some good kit there and developer support is up seeing its cheap to develop for but what with the high price (£250 over here for something that is techinical four years old) I really doubt it'll catch on. Missed opportunity to me.

    I will get an older PSP though, the future games appeal to me somewhat and it'll be nicer to watch stuff on in bed instead of my PDA.
