i feel sorry for that guy who must of got fired... YOUTUBE: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
The PSP looks alot better in this shot than the Qore one.. Does anyone now how thick it is ??? As it looks very awkward to hold... Ill look forward to getting one of these as providing its not ridiculously priced, and there is a better range of PSP games.
@ Mindboggle, This is for you... http://n4g.com/NewsPending-... Still think my credibility is gone?
Your credibility is back in my books...Sorry for doubting you.. I still dont believe the PS3 box though....It just doesnt look as professional as this box..Plus the logo looks fake on it...And thats not even because of the French site, ive never believed it...
what are the specs for the pspgo? do you know if the HEN exploit works on the pspgo? my 3000 runs neo geo, gameboy advance, snes,genesis, nes...among many others. i dont even play psp games.LOL, if anyone recalls, i claimed they would release gran turismo with a new psp..... but a new mgs too????/!!!!im shocked. floored,stunned, ecstatic. sony on the takeover
What's hilarious, as it confirms the PS3 slim at the same time. 2 birds, 1 stone.
@ sack_boi, That's how I roll.
Well, you're the phuckin man Sev, no doubt.
@ 50CAL, What do you mean by specs. Be more specific. It's the same innards as the original PSP as far as I know. As for dimensions, or weight, I have no idea.
it looks aight but naming it go makes it sound like a go phone, like I did not know it was a portable or something. You insulting my int?
If you think the logo is fake then check this out. http://blog.us.playstation.... (watch the first video to the very end)
screen type? bluetooth 3.0? wifi upgrade to N standard, from A? battery life? i NEEEEEEEEEEEEEESDS to know. knowin me ill buy it first day anyway.even though there is a very high probability that this cant emulate past systems.LOL
The logo on that video....Also shown here http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_9... Isnt the same as the one on the box.
First TRICO and then this...I just hope you don't make an article later about SONY dissapointing during E3 because there were no surprises You B media guys are a big reason why E3 sucks, you leak everything and then expect companies to announce even more stuff...this things kill the magic of the annoucements
Does it have a built in mic???
Oh I'm sorry did you look up from your piles of anime and dolls to actually read an article or do you just have a cheeto stuck in your [email protected]@
I hope the screen is GLASS like the iPhone and iPod touch so it doesn't scratch. I love how I don't have to worry about my iPod touch scratching when I put it into my pocket and since the PSP Go looks so pocket-friendly, it seems like a logical addition. Looks like a neat redesign but I'm disappointed that it still only has one analog stick though >:( Fall of this year... damn suddenly that seems really far :/
That POS is ugly than the DSi! The graphics appear to be that of the Sega GameGear ROFL! Sony should stop making systems and turn into a developer like Sega since they clearly don't know how to make attractive devices.
That's probably gonna sale for the rip off price of $199. Just go buy a PSP 9000 since it's the same thing with out the lame gimmicky slide thing.
i like it but one question..what happens to my umd games?... i got rid of my old psp and have been waiting for this new one to be announced so i can buy this one but from the other pics i saw theres no umd thingy...at least i think there isnt
I want to know the same....If Sony are expecting us to buy the UMD games again...They can take a running jump.. But then again I dont want to buy a PSP 3000 to play UMDS when this is available... By the way this image 100% confirms theres no UMD drive, as Sev said.. http://gamingconsolenetwork...
There is 100% No UMD Drive. I have no idea what they are going to do about people's existing UMD library.
if their are no tangible games.....PSP go wont do so hot....like patapon 2 was downloadable only.....lots of confused and pissed off people.... could be a bad move for sony..... good for japan...but everywhere else....just dont think its worth it.
guess we gotta find out at E3...i hope they didnt forget about the people with umds because i still have mine...either way i definitely will pick up this new psp
I think they are really trying to replicate the success of the app store on the iPhone. What Sony needs to do is to make loads of games like PixelJunk Monsters, Super Stardust aswell as getting loads of third partys like Popcap and Gameloft on board to make low priced fun games.... Then couple that with the the blockbuster games like GTA, MGS, LBP, GOW, and I think it will do great.. If this PSP is anymore than £150 it will fail..Sony needs to make this £100 and it will sell like the DSi...
Massive PSP support is coming.
if you're concerned about your existing library, maybe they'll release software that will let you rip umd games into an iso format...like maybe when the psp 1000/2000/3000 is connected to a pc via usb.... I know that sounds like suicide for sony (piracy wise), but I think that's the only viable solution right now to address the issue of how people are going to play their current library of games on this thing imo. I assume that going forward they will be releasing games in parallel. A digital copy that one can download from the psn store and a one on umd that one can buy at a retailer... Anyone know if you can add another memory stick duo to this thing?
Well the most obvious reason why Sony would want to go UMD-less as well as have a completely new hardware, is to combat Piracy. And as much as I like playing on a homebrew PSP, there's still the guilt that I'm partaking on the downfall of the PSP itself. Hopefully this new PSP is hack-free, so Sony could start making some profits off of it.
I always think piracys going to be an issue, digital download or physical media. Hackers will always find a way. Things like PSN game sharing...Thats a form of piracy and is probably hurting the sales of PSN games....
I think you'll probably be able to copy the game from the old PSP to the new one...similar to when you get a new X360, you can order a free cable from MSFT to transfer your stuff from the old HDD into the new one
Most titles will be available for download.
The articles clearly states 'pics'...but i only see one.
Oops, sorry. They have been added. 3 more pics including the PSP Go Open, Closed, and a Logo.
NEW MGS PSP COBFIRMED!!!! Go check out the Qore episode guys!!!!
Who the hell leaks this stuff!? Sony got some serious security issues
and you have insecurity issues.
maybe these are controlled leaks like a way to create hype, if Sony announce PSP go + PS3Slim + MGS5 + MGSPort2 + the bunch of exclusives we already know, I really do not know what will happen
Maybe it's intentional leaking. To stir up the speculation pot.
if the new games will also work on the PSP-1000-3000.
If they are available via PSN store, if your firmware is current on your older models, it would still give you access to download the game onto your Memory Stick.
do anyone notice that the box looks like the same style of the "PS3 Slim"??? interesting http://playstationlifestyle... O I found this article
Nice find. Yea, I think the PS3 Slim is pretty legit.
16 gb in right down corner, it sais. So, no UMD.
remember when sony tried to damage control the issues with the original PSP by claiming it was like perfect architecture that can't be criticized
I really cannot get over how awful this design looks. But I suppose they had to settle for a slider to get a bigger screen. If that PS3 slim turns out to be real, then LOL. Did Sony fire all their designers or something?
what don't you like about the design?
nomather what design you pick, someone is going to say it looks awefull.
is the man of the hour. And now I realize how the new PS3 looks so real " check the PS network logo and the HDD size in those pictures". CastlevaniaX
please be touch screen.. it wouldnt make sense to have the slider if something isnt eccessable without sliding it. cant wait for E3 baby YEA! few more days guys,few more days.
No touch screen
The point of a slide screen is to make the unit smaller, so it'l easily fit in your pocket.
I don't know what sony is doing or trying to compete with,is this the best they got for psp? are they going after iphone with this 16gb psp go or are they trying to compete against Nintendo with Dsi in my view it's gonna be a failure knowing that all of us that got screwed with our psp 1k/2k/3k with UMD. why would anyone buy that! I'm really disappointed in sony, and on top of the fact that the concept of this design looks just like Sony's Mylo which failed also so ya.IMO it's gonna fail.
wait a little maybe sony will give you a code for a downloadable version in exchange for old UMDs, Im sold with this new PSP no UMDs means longer battery also the new layout makes it smaller.
It is going to be cool. It has Bluetooth too, so headsets and other devices will be able to sync up with it. This should be interesting.. For sure buy. I am seriously sad that they did not offer a second analog stick tho. Acidmods.com created a second analog stick for current PSP models and it simply button maps the Triangle, Square, Circle and X buttons. So it makes FPS games much easier to play, while games would still work on all psp models. It really is a simple solution to the problem that Sony obviously didn't even think of.
it looks ugly.if it had sleeker looks etc id prob would have bought one,but ill just buy a slim 2000 and say hello to the homebrew scene and wait for the next handheld to get released lol
I personally think this is a test for the "2" I think the 2 will be more of a revision of this hardware than this is to the 1000-3000. Also I want to believe the aesthetic approach to the PSP2 will be radical compared to this and more sleek, if Sony's design track record, over the years, has proven anything My question: will it have multi-touch? Also: Thanks for all the first-hand gaming news/info you have given this site, Sev. I personally appreciate it, as it's a breath of fresh, clean air, within the polluted crap blog-wasteland-hell. Tracked. ;D Edit: I just saw your response "No touch screen" I thought the Go! would have one for sure, as the screen is heavily emphasized in it's design.
i do not think this is real the design doesnt look great and i cannot picture this being 2nd rendition of the playstation portable it would be so awkward holding it like that because most of the weight would be at the top i dont know but it just doesnt look right
it's not PSP2.. it's like PSP1.5
I apologize to Sev for going out of my way to bash him on N4G.
The only thing I don't like about the new PSP Go is the pushed down look on the D-Pad, Analog sticks, mini buttons & the PS buttons. It looks like they placed the buttons inside a giant crater or something. But anyays Sony is getting closer to their original concept of the PSP show below http://www.insertcredit.com...
LOL! Exactly! We have to jump into the grand canyon to play our games now! :D
Just looking at it makes me want it... So will it do games with better graphics than the older psp?
realy wanted dual analogs. still what are the specs and features
Why do people keep saying this? Seriously its not a new system its a redesign! If they included dual analogs on this then everyone who bought the older psp's would be shafted. Its just a smart redesign that plays the exact same games with the exact same specs. You cant make games with only this one psp model in mind.
Same specs as all the other models. All this is - is like said above, a redesigned model without a UMD drive.
It just looks way too tight!
I don't get it. Where are all the haters now? They all come out to bash the crap out of me in the PS3 Slim pics are fake article. I got PMs threatening me and everything. Yet they never come out when I post stuff to shut them up. Do they not see this? Or are they just cowards?
they're sobbing quietly in a corner! give 'em some time to dry their eye's and hug their teddy bears :)
Why would anyone threaten you? It's not like you have any real information to give to people...you just spend all of your time on the internet. You seem to think of yourself as someone with all this insider information and it makes me laugh..considering the fact you're just a teenage boy living at home.
