Mega64 just tried to insert a UMD in to the PSP Go.
In typical sony style the onslaught on customers is taken to the main stream, thank Sony. If the PSP Go, actually takes off you can kiss goodbye to ownership of all your games & say hello to Sony's wet dream of anti-consumer licensing forcing everyone to purchase new titles only! Bend over for sony & their anti-consumer PSP Go as you are now: NOT allowed to trade your games, NOT allowed to lend your games, NOT allowed to sell your games, NOT even allowed to give your games away for free. with this anti consumer move Sony has rendered all software purchases worthless.
you do know that sony hasn't discontinued the psp 3000?? you have choice to buy a psp which supports umd and a psp that doesn't support umd. you do know that alot of ps3 psn games and dlc actually allow gamesharing. some games you can share out to 5 users. as far as i am aware sony is the only company that lets you do this.
It's not only Sony, why do you think so many companies are pushing digital downloads or offering extra content to gamers who buy new copies of games. Either your ill informed and think this is something new, or your just moaning for the sake of it. But get used to it, the major producers/developers are all making a push to this type of format. More money more money. Ever hear of the Apple App store? Perhaps Steam/Direct2Drive/EA store/360 games on demand and so on?.
did you really just destroy a psp for a few hits? at least the kid who destroyed his ps3 did it in front of a line of people who wanted it.
games on demand says hi It seems more companies are wanting to offer digital distribution and in time im sure that it will become more mainstreaM.
Sony aren't forcing you to do anything lol. They're supporting the PSP 3000 just as much as the PSP Go. It'll be a long long time before we get to a point were the majority don't want physical media and as long as the demand for a physical media is there then the product will be too. Wee bit harsh for you to exclusively condemn Sony for digital distribution when others have been doing it for a long time already. You gonna just abandon consoles altogether if DD takes off and MS start pushing Games on Demand a lot more? What about anything published by EA? Anything publishers put on Steam or Direct2Drive? I think you're just complaining for the sake of it.
what a waste of a console.
@ ZombieAutopsy that's the plan to push this anti-consumer licensing main stream & remove our rights. @ Karum sony are only supporting UMD for now they will switch to anti-consumer licensing as soon as possible as then sony block all second hand game sales generating millions from people that use to swap games with their school friends. BTW the sony public relations line of steam & DD is utter bull, following anti-consumer is no excuse for sony to take away gamers rights & DD/steam is not exactly main stream. sony could allow us to send titles to our friends but they choose anti-consumer instead, so ask the question of what is the goal of blocking trading games?
For the last few years now The Fanboys have been saying everything is going digital distribution because Microsoft was saying it was, now that Sony has made the initiative with the PSPgo The Fanboys are acting like its the end of the world. We know why The Fanboys were saying that digital distribution is the future, mostly to try and hurt or influence the sales of Blu-Ray, now there saying the opposite to hurt the PSPgo sales. Do remember that digital distribution of games has been going on for years now with Steam, Apple Store, And Direct to Drive without a Fanboy stink said about it for the most part. Sony has given people a choice if they want a PSP, you can buy a PSP 3000 or a PSPgo, they both have there strengths and weaknesses but you still have a choice. We've seen similar BS with PS3 and Xbox 360 graphics. When web sites do a third party game comparison between the PS3 and Xbox 360 version of the game, if the Xbox 360 version has slightly better graphics The Fanboys gloat that the Xbox 360 version is always better but when a PS3 exclusive proves that the PS3 can do better looking and running games on the PS3 than can be done on Xbox 360 they say graphics don't matter. Typical of a certain type of Fanboy.
ur just tryin to start sh1t, u know u can still by physical media right??? and im sure you will be able to for a long time. I dont say this word very often but you sir are a NOOB What about steam, theyve been doing it for years and years, what about the ps store or xbla they have been doing it for years.
wow, IGN editors must be rolling in cash to have money to blow. And that Kitchen was looking pretty fancy.
I'm going to assume you have been living under a rock for the past 5 years. Same with the 10 people that agreed with you. XBL, PSN, iPod app store, steam, and any DD service all says hello.
Wasn't Microsoft claiming DD is the future? Doesn't the iPod, Zune, and other handheld devices feature pure DD? Why is Sony suddenly the bad guy for this?
Blaze929: Mega64 is independent,they don't work for IGN, they just have a deal with them. It might seem all fun and games but this does bring up a good point, I bet there will be parents this Christmas season who either buy PSP Go's and UMD games or UMD games for their kids who have a PSP Go.
this is the 2nd time I read about the exact same post in 5 minutes from you and I think that you won't stop are you? yeah keep copy+paste this comment to every PSP Go! related article, you moron! at the time people are embracing Bluray, all you people say was "buh buh buh..DD" and now that Sony is stepping up DD with Go! you guys say "buh buh buh...physical media ownership" and so on! HYPOCRITES!
lol "anticonsumer licencing" did you make that word up yourself? Oh sony is so mean that they allow me to share all the games i buy on PSN with my brother who also owns a PSP. If i bought them on UMD we would have to buy 2 games. Also games on PSN is almost always cheaper then in stores, atleast where i live. If this anticonsumer licensing stuff means getting games cheaper and being able to share the games with my friends then i say bring more of it.
Its bad enough they still have one stupid analog stick but to get rid off the UMD? Why didn't they just keep it on for the people who wanted to use their old psp games but give people the option to download games (for the people who don't want to carry them)
@pphoenix Shut up ya hippy! There taking away our rights man! You still have a choice, and personally I prefer digital downloads. I don't trade my games in because you get peanuts for them anyway, plus it's so much easier to buy games when I don't have to get my lazy ass off the couch, and because there is no middle man (read robbing bas***d retailers), in theory the games should be cheaper.
lol, you typed exactly what I was thinking, the bias the industry has against Sony; damned if you do damned if you don't, lol. What’s even funnier Microsoft is talking about digital download only services while Sony is in a better position to do so despite the fact that Sony is pushing physical media a little bit more for their Blu-ray.
You don't have to buy it. I am playing tetris on my 2000 right now output on my LCD. I don't like UMD's so I'm glad they gave me the choice for some smaller downloadable games to play on the older models as well as the new model that you don't really need if you already have one. What a waste!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'd like your crystal ball, please.
Starving kids out there and they are wasting money on bad humor, that video cost them over $300! Won't somebody please think of the children!
I Just Ordered The White One Wooooooooooooo!!!!!!! Now Dat Sexy Lil Fing Will Be In Me Hands :P
There's a white one? O_O
I got a white 1 last week its very nice choice :)
canceled ma order......... but wait i went to the stores n got it lol OMG The white 1 is sooooooooooo sexy!!! :O just downloadin gran turismo, rock band and pixel junk monsters :D
That is one expensive joke Buying and breaking a PSP Go for a video. It makes me sad for some reason.
just think of all those starving kids in africa
That actually makes be feel better. /jk
There have been worse, with the smashmy* series. So you have a smashmy* website where visitors make donations to the site in order to buy a * and crush it in front of everyone. *PS3: http://www.youtube.com/watc... *Xbox 360: http://www.youtube.com/watc... *iPod: http://www.youtube.com/watc... etc...
"just think of all those starving kids in africa " I know. They would freak out too if they didn't know the PSPgo didn't have a UMD drive. :)
giving em free stuff give to another review site that will at least pass it to a fan...
Mega64 is not IGN owned, they are independent, they only have a partnership deal where IGN gets to publish their videos first before they do themselves.
...i can't get my old VHS Tapes into my PS3!!! WTF!!! ;-D I WANT MY MONEY BACK FOR ALL THE MONEY I SPENT ON THOSE VHS TAPES!!! ;-D
We are sad to inform you that VHS was not an exclusive Sony product. Only the vastly superior in quality Betamax is compatible with the PS3. We are certain that with you being an honorary member of the Sony Socialist Republic that you still have a vast library of Betamax and would have never gone against the Fuhrer's wish to NOT own any VHS. Hail Fuhrer Kaz Hirai and the Sony Socialist Republic!
Was this supposed to be entertaining? If so the only thing remotely funny was the guy in the video looked the part of an idiot. Wonder if he practices or it comes natural?
that guy ain,t starving for sure,he could feed africa
MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN MOAN
i know someone who actually broke the disks out of the cases when he got his PSP. should of seen his face when we told him how to use it:D
One of my friends who bought an 80gb PS3 didn't know he was playing in 480p. He used to always say crap like "The PS3 is overrated man. The 360's graphics are light years better!" Then one day we're at his house and I noticed and told him. "Umm... you do know you're only in 480p right?" "What? Oh... yeah..." Not the sharpest knife in the cupboard, but is a nice guy.
err... is this supposed to be funny or what?
how much pay Modern Warfare 2 for this add? only a PSPgo?
Lol, he was in a Gamestop. What advertisements were you expecting, Bub and Bob?
HA I love Mega 64, but hey dude i woulda taken that pspgo off your hands damn!!
You guys take this sh*t too seriously, it's just a piece of hardware, Mega64 does this shizz all the time yalls relax!!
I thought it was quite funny myself. The fact that people will get upset over someone destroying a pspgo amuses me even more.
lol its not like its your own psp they are breaking! its theirs they can do whatever the hell they want with it right? but i still think its kinda pointless to do such a thing, its just a waste of money
and the gaming journalists act like grizzly bear azz
dunno if u guys know but if u download a game on ps3 u can distribute it to as many people as u like, whether u make ur friends pay to come to ur house and download it or give it for free is up to u. this works for psp games easily and i have done it pretty often, with patapon, undead knights and fate/ unlimited codes. it makes sense that they try to eleminate trades, u know how many sales they lose to trades? sales numbers wud double or triple if it wasnt for used sales which devs get no royaly for. wat does this mean? less money for devs means less quality games, or lower quality games. trades r double edged swords, good and very bad at same time. while i wouldnt download games i understand what sony is trying to do
Smartest comment I've heard in this article. By the way nice BlazBlue icon of Noel :D
should have gotten a 3000
You realize this is comedy rite?
Was this supposed to be funny?
I find it funny how people bash sony endlessly for having a UMD less psp. what about? 1)Netflix and other video download sites? 2) blu ray players which cant run vinals or VHS. DAM THEM!!! 3) my mp3 player cant use CD's. EVERYONEW BAS APPLE AND THEIR ITUNES!!! 4) Plus my camera doesnt use film, just a USB stick... Uggghhh so why are we just bashing sony again? Becuase right now my mp3 player wont play CD's, my blu ray player wont do VHS and my camera wont use good old film... Or maaaaybe this has nothing to do with that? and maybe it has more to do with fanboys hating anything new which sony does... Just a thought... =P
You can buy Blu Ray players that support VHS playback dude, mostly in Japan and Europe. Also, your Blu Ray player will playback your DVD's, CD's, and in earlier models your HD DVD's as well. :p Anyway, the issue people have with the PSP Go is the fact that your old UMD collection won't work on what is essentially the same device (aka not PSP 2) and no way exists to bring your UMD collection to the PSP Go.
im absolutely sure that guy was born on his 6th month of her mother's pregnancy.
what a pri**
I love mega 64, hilarious videos they have, but am I the only one that kinda gets annoyed with people buying hundreds of dollars worth of something then just smashing it?
I thought it was kinda funny but at the same time a little hard to watch since that was an expensive little device he was destroying.
Nah they make enough money to afford it have you seen the number of Gametap commercials they have been in?
sadly it looks like the psp will be the last of the physical media handhelds
Is the DS going digital too?
you seem a lot like this guy I had a debate with about this a couple months ago http://gamegirl.blogfaction... do you guys see the resemblance?
I see the walls of text and the guy praising the DS more while saying the PSP is a pile of $hit along with its game catalog but, he doesn't have a user icon so that's throwing me off a little bit.... Just a little bit...
I'm not usually one to care about this kinda thing.. but that was just a waste. It wasn't even used in an amusing video! it was just crap!
You waste like, 270 bucks just to do a video about the PSP Go not being able to play UMD's just to destroy it for a waste of money? Dumbass.
So says the user with baka in his name...... Okay sorry I couldn't resist but yeah personally I wouldn't want to do that since money is tight this day in age but, at least he spent money on it to help stimulate this economy :D.
haha. Wait, I don't get the first part that you mentioned. How does the money help stimulate the economy? The money only goes to the company. I think....
That was stupid. Spend $300 to entertain the two people out there that thinks this is funny.
Stop crying. It's not yours.
