PSP Go and buy all-new accessories

Sony had a spot in its press-only booth area reserved for showing off the various accessories that will be available for PSP Go when it hits US shelves on October 1. There were cases, wrist straps, Sony-branded screen protectors ... and wait, what was that? Since the handheld doesn't have a standard mini USB port like the PSP-3000, we'll have to buy all new accessories? Sad, but true.

The story is too old to be commented.

Sony really seems to have its head up its collective ass on this one. I thought they dropped this proprietary crap a while back -- or had at least showed they were leaning towards user-friendly tech with the PS3.

What are they thinking? More expensive unit; Proprietary connector; games in a format that provides no resale value. I guess they're back to their old tricks again? Or maybe they're just trying to rake in as much cash as possible in advance for when they finally drop the price of the PS3?

Will this thing only play games that are downloaded? I for one do not like the price and now you have to buy all new accessories. I will for sure wait on a price drop. I am not sure what Sony is thinking when they came out with this. I guess we shall see Oct. 1st
