Kotaku: Sony's PlayStation Portable is the first handheld gaming device to survive a battle with Nintendo, but is it worth your money? On paper, it seemed like such a good idea. [UPDATE to reflect E3 announcements (and lack thereof).]
Step your game up.
No, wait for it.. wait for it.. PSP2!
That's what I'm waiting for. I would have bought the Go except that I really want a second analog control. I actually had it pre-ordered but then decided I'd wait for the PSP2
ALL CAPS NO!
Metal gears patapons personas gran tarismos motor storms lunar god of war the list goes on fool.
That is a pretty good list. But is is not even a quarter as big as the DS' library. Cheaper too!
smells desperation. Nintendo still No#1 in handheld and console wars. It hurts being #2 or #3 we know that.
funny, since MS knows very well how its like to be 2nd and last, but it never tasted first place did it? and by the looks of it never will either. HAH
since 3DS has been announced, PSP Marketing Force are in full force! Sony fanbois might be very desperate to bring back the PSP brand to win the handheld war against Nintendo. Sad but Sony still loosing.
only fo decoraton man.
"No" means "Yes".
Yes but not the one on the pic.
of the PSP2 coming out as soon as I buy it...because that's my type of luck.
plz go buy it so we get the psp2
Moore's law might give you nightmares buddy.
I need a good thinking session, explain :D
same with me. i had a PSP i fixed forever ago, but then dropped it and gave it away. been wanting it ever since. now i have just convinced myself PSP2 is right around the corner, and i should wait.
You need one to play PW, VC2, Kingdom Hearts, Parasite Eve, GoW:GoS among others. I would say YES you should.
There will be so many games you'll miss
I Hav To Buy 1 For GOW:Ghost Of Sparta And Metal Gear:Peace Walker
to play MONSTERS (PROBABLY) STOLE MY PRINCESS.....Its the most addicting game ive ever played...
well its all matter of opinions and choices , psp GO has brought me back to handheld gaming ,that and most of the playstation franchise i love are on the little system now and more coming in the not too distant future , i wanted to have my Motorstorm on the go ... i got it , i wanted it my Resistance on the go ... i got it , i wanted my Little Big Planet on the go ... i got it, i wanted my Jack and Daxter on the go ... i got it , i wanted my Gran Turismo on the go ... i got it , i wanted my Metal Gear on the go ... i got it , i wanted my Wipeout on the go... i got it , i wanted my Killzone on the go ... i got it , i wanted my Syphon Filter on the go ... i got it , i wanted my ModNation on the go ... i got it , wanted my Pixeljunk , Fat Princess , Socom , Ratchet on the go... i got them , i wanted my GOD OF WAR on the go ... i got it
i like the the GO in concept, but hate it in cost.
You almost convinced me to go get a pspgo I do want one really bad but the price is ridiculous and I think ima wait until we know for sure when the psp2 is coming out. I hope they make a GO version of it cuz then I'll get that one. But all those games you mentioned are the same ones I been really really wanting to play on a pspgo. Maybe my gf will get me one for my b-day. In august atleast if I don't hear anything about a psp2 by then I'll ask her for one
well if you want to continue your playstation home console experience on the GO then get it , its very portable , it has bluetooth functionality , pause / resume feature , but first take a look at all the games that are on PSN because not all UMDs come to PSN . my favorite games are there so i dont have a problem , i have a lot of games besides the ones i mentioned already, i have Hot Shot Tennis: Get a Grip , BUZZ Quiz World , Savage Moon , Ape Quest , Loco Roco 2 , Loco Roco Midnight Carnival , Echochrome , MediEvil Resurrection , Secret Agent Clank , Patchwork Heroes and Pinball Heroes ( Motorstorm , Fat Princess and ModNation tables ) soon to add Valkyria Chronicles 2 , Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep ( if it comes to psn ) , God of War: Ghost of Sparta and Parasite Eve : The Third Birthday, Yakuza and im hoping to see White Knight Chronicles psp getting western love in 2011 . overall im extremely happy with my psp game library of course it could grow , i mean i would love to see a Warhawk , Uncharted , inFAMOUS , Heavenly Sword , another Killzone , another Resistance , another Motorstorm , another Little Big Planet on the little system , ohhh and AN ACTIVE PSN FRIENDS LIST ( that would be sweet!!!!!!!!! )
I got one on Christmas... and no. It was completely not worth it.
yes. Don't let others decide for you. Make up your own mind.
Yes plus I love my psp go.
portability has been a big plus to me , oh and the pause / resume feature ,bluetooth functionality are nice features too
I hardly ever play my PSP
I also hardly play mine because my PS3 use to eat all my time, but there are some games you just cant miss. Is your avatar from Peace Walker?
I've been asking myself the same question :(
Too late lol bought one for when i went to China. 52 hours from door step to hotel door traveling, kinda needed something at the time to keep me and the group busy. So we system linked while waiting around with GTA :) I say it depends on your situation too be honest, if you see yourself having time traveling around or away then yes. If not and your home save for a Ps3, 360, or a new PC
...but have had a PSP for 4 years prior. When the PSp2 comes out I'll get one of those as well.
3DS will play the vast library of amazing DS games, that is 10x bigger and better then the boring PSP one and play new 3D games with 100xbetter graphics than PSP and new next gen visuals I was already decided to buy a DS before 3DS, now that has new 3D games, plays all DS games and has 100x better graphics than PSP, it is clear than 3DS is my choice, PSP is overpriced, has no games and the graphics will be like crap when 3DS arrives Thank god i was not deceived by Sony promises, like with PS3
Dude, your a chump. The 3DS has been touted as having gamecube like graphics which is fine except that the PSP has had PS2 like graphics for the last 5 years. If and when a PSP2 appears then it will piss all over the 3DS because Sony always bring out cutting edge hardware while Nintendo add gimmicks to pre-existing stuff.
I have both PS3 and PSP and I'm cool with them... they are fun and have a lot of exclusive games to choose from.
every real gamer should have one
which has some pretty good games on it as well as holding loads of my music, family pics and videos on. Funny that no one has mentioned the remote connection to the PS3. All in all, its given/giving me, great VFM imho.
Not the GO, buy the 3000
just got myself a pspgo and i love it very smart and with 10 free games its a bargain . now got 16 gig card for it now have a 32 gig pspgo must sell my old one now lol
I say if you can find a psp which you can hack, it is totally worth it. I love playing SNES, N64, etc while on the go. However, the PSP has failed to draw me in with the exception of some older PSONE classics, which you can get on PSN.
