Reasons To Buy A PSPgo

The Sixth Axis writes: "A couple of weeks ago I gave you 10 reasons not to buy a PSPgo. I thought they were all valid though some were more subjective than others. At the time I said that I would follow it up with 10 reasons to buy a PSPgo. I have to admit that I have not been able to come up with ten reasons that make sense but after a late night viewing of Donnie Darko to get myself into a suitably twisted mental state where I can try and justify spending a Frank-ly ridiculous amount of money on a new iteration of the PSP hardware I do have five reasons for you.

It is my personal belief that Sony are simply testing the digital-only waters with the PSPgo in preparation for launching a digital-only PSP2, perhaps as soon as October 2010. That we might see the PSP2 as soon as next year is pure speculation on my part but I am more certain that the PSPgo is the last-hurrah for the PSP. Maybe we will know more after Cologne but even being able to jump forward 28 days 6 hours 42 minutes and 12 seconds would not get me to GDC/Gamescom so we will just have to wait."

nice article.
i hate UMD. it really pain my ass!!!!

another reason buy PSPGO:
M$ has no own handheld game console. LOL

Same battery life

I can get used UMD's for dirt cheap and trade/sell mine

Bigger screen

and its probably going to take more than half a year to crack the PSPgo because its going to have new hardware AND the 5.51 software. You need to have firmware 5.03 to get all the good stuff like PSX and homebrew, 5.51 hasn't been exploited and its getting harder and harder for the firmware to get exploited so it may not happen (it will be past 5.51 by october). I can play thousands of games with the cracked firmware!

I'm not paying $250 bucks for bluetooth!

I can get a 16 gb memory stick

Since it is smaller, lighter, has a slider, and has bluetooth for headsets.

"In fact by equipping yourself with a video out lead for your PSPgo you could actually connect it up to your TV and pretend you have a PS3 Slim. Of course by the time October gets here and if the rumours prove true, instead of spending £230 on a PSPgo, £35 on a DS3 and say £20 on a video out lead for a grand total of £285, you may well be able to buy yourself an actual PS3 Slim which will come complete with leads and a controller for less than that."

not that the article wasnt riddle with it but wth is this bs about?
Sure the psp is a lot more expensive than it should b imo 2 but wth is the ps3 gotta do with it n the slim when it comes wont b 299 imho
You know when your apologies are just veiled attacks you have issues. Just get over it yur wifes not cumin back when sonys packing that big black ps3.

Clearly the guy has issues with the PSPgo and not sony. The article only ever talked down the PSPgo, infact possibly complimenting sony on a cheaper slimline ps3.

i don't use CFW

$250 is too much for me.
i'll wait until it's under $200.

If you don't use custom firmware your oblivious to what it can offer. The best feature is ripping your games to your memory stick which destroys a major buying point of the PSPgo for people who have custom firmware.

Milky3419d ago

Just because the psp only has one analogue stick doesn't mean it doesn't have amazing games. For example God of War and resistance: retribution control great regardless.

This year is the PSP's year:

Resistance: retribution
Locoroco 2
Motorstorm: arctic edge
Gran Turismo
Shin Megami Tensei: Persona
GTA: chinatown wars
Jak and Daxter: lost frontier
Assassins Creed
Socom: Fireteam Bravo 3
Tekken 6 and Soul Caliber

I don't see a need. All I care about are two analog sticks and PS2 emulation on the PSP2.
