Aberinkulas Writes... Ask someone what they think of the PSP Go. Some people (Me included) may say, "Too expensive" or "Redundant." Some may say, "A step in the right direction." The weirdos in the corner might cry, "Eric Cartman!" But no matter who says what, the important thing to remember is that this is the first major gaming device that downloads all of its games. Not just some. ALL. Whoa.
While the discussions from developers and analysis have been a bit polarized between the successes and failures of the PSP Go, the ramifications of this device are rather large, and this is an experiment that's well overdue. Digital distribution has been in full force on PC, and whether or not it's working is a moot point – it's time to bring this method to the consoles and handhelds. Rest assured that no matter what happens to the PSP Go, every single company in the video games industry today will be watching the handheld system to see what goes wrong, what goes right, and hypothesizing how to fix it.
