GamingBolt.com gives the gamers a verdict on whether the PSP Go is worth it or not.
Just face the facts 16Gbs says it all Light and less bulky/noticeable in your pocket blu-tooth connectivity I was thinking 16Gbs isn't all that much at first but really, do you NEED to carry your ENTIRE psp library of games with you at all times? 5 games should be satisfactory and the rest of the space can be used for music, videos, photos or simply to have room for downloading something while you're out. Not that I wouldn't want it to release for a lower price but it's definitely worth $250 when you break everything down. Best if you don't own a psp already.
Size. Being able to put that thing in my pocket is what wins me over. The smaller the better. I love my PSP and will truly enjoy the smaller size that this PSP Go has to offer.
I had a PSP that I sold on about 18 months ago. when i bought it i though it was great but got bored of it because there was only a few games i fancied. Im considering the PsP go, but i always like to have a hard copy of the game. 16gb will prob hold around 2 - 4 games with some videos and music. which seems good enough, as i agree with familyguy you will probably never take more than 3 games with you when you go on your travels with it. and if your at home you will be able to swap and change when ever you want. Does anyone know what happens if you see a UMD on sale in a shop that you want but its not on sale on sonys website. how do you go around transferring it or do you just have to pay sony all the time
If I get round to buying a PSP(just for MGS really), it wont be the 'Go'. I'm sure alot of people will also feel the same way.
I prefer to have a game that I bought on a disk, cardridge,... whatever. And I still don't know what you have to do with the games you own now from the PSP. Can you download them for free on the new one?
Before what? Sorry I had too. :P That headline makes no sense.
I'm not digging the price point for the Go. I'm staying with my original PSP.
If the PSP Go can't be hacked then i doubt it will be as big as the past psp's. The PSP only has a handful of really great games. MGS is the only new game i really really want. I have LBP on the PS3 so i really dont care about that. God of war was a great game hope they do another one.
Previous PSPs combined have sold over 50 million worldwide. While I think I will buy the PSP GO, the price is what's going to kill it. Unless it's a minimum of $199 the average consumer won't even consider it especially when there's the much cheaper PSP 3000.
I'm still using a homebrewed PHAT PSP 1000. (BTW I own the UMD's of all games I have in file format) I really don't see me going for a Go. I love my PSP, I've had months where I don't touch it but something (usually Monster Hunter) always brings me back to it but I'm just not sure how many people will go for the new version. At first, I thought the Go was a PSP2 but finding out that it's just another update I'm not sure if it's release is a particularly great idea. That being said, I hope it does well, but I'm skeptical.
It might not sell 28+ million units but it will be successful.
it's worth it ... many people say the price tag and conclude it's to expensive but with this your cutting the middle man out which = cheaper games plus you end up saving gas because you don't need to drive to a store to get a game .... so in the long run your saving money
The PSP brand has really only started getting the attention it deserves in the last couple of years. With the install base finally warranting devs to take that chance (and with dev systems decreasing in price) PSP's future is bright. The PSPgo will face an uphill battle with it's entry price (if it stays at $250), but there is another spin on this. Maybe, by introducing a NEW model at $250 the early adopters (i.e. tech heads)will drive demand for the existing market of PSP 2000's and 3000's that remain and the PSPgo itself. (You know...the usual holiday buyer's guide kinda thing.)Parents might find the $250 entry point too high, but the "older" PSP's in the sweet spot (if they haven't adopted the platform already). Plus, the upcoming library of games for this holiday is no slouch either.
