i definitely am a sony fan and everything i love what they acomplished so far just everything they have proven worthy but ppl just might not understand how unblievably annoying it is having a sliding psp it really really is so very very annoying to unblievably lingths i bought the normal psp then sold it and got the slim i play psp alot finished most of its strong games i am telling u this can have a major down slide cause of the sliding it really is uncomfortable u just cant press the buttons u want when its fast pase pls agree or disagree with me tht's how i feel

This handheld looks absolutely atrocious.

1. Horrible layout. Check
2. Smaller screen. Check
3. Stick next to the DPAD (lol wtf). Check
4. No UMD support. Check

I knew that Sony was dumb, but not THAT dumb. Do they actually think that with this and a few, small games that only appeal to an extremely small group of evangelists(LBP, MGS) are going to steal the market from Nintendo and Apple?

Please don't make me laugh.

gamesmaster3489d ago (Edited 3489d ago )

apple? small games?

"i knew that sony was dumb"

..dumb enough to sell 50 mil PSP's?

PotNoodle3489d ago (Edited 3489d ago )

Shh, i'll be buying it.

And what is in this post that isn't in all the other 200 posts that were submitted to N4G within the last few hours? I see nothing new in there.

The only issue with me is no dual anolog stick
i feel like the start/select area was meant for a second one but didnt implement it...WHY????

All SONY has to do is make a psp that has dual analog i mean imagine having games like Modern Warfare, KZ2, etc. the only thing the psp lacks is FPS b/c it suks using the buttons

Now i like the whole slide and bluetooth feature alot but the analog is in an awkward position and so is start/select.
it couldve been easily moved to the bottom of screen but hey at least we knoe what direction sony is taking with psp

Ill get myself a new psp WHEN there is a second analog otherwise itll just be the same and i hope tey solved the piracy prob. b/c it would drive away devs

if only sony were smart and suported the homebrew community

EDIT: @ below
yea thats y i said that sony shouldve supported the homebrew community where u get all the features of a hacked psp minus the ability to hack games if that was the beginning then u wouldnt see so many piracy

Saren Arterius3489d ago

50 millions of users who buy that thing just to hack it and play PS1 and SNES games.

You failed my friend.

Masta_fro3489d ago (Edited 3489d ago )

so what if they buy just to hack it...

i did the same with my ipod touch...

it is you who fails my friend, and I thinks the psp go looks awesome, but that is just my opinion.

And do you seriously think a new (note the caps)METAL GEAR game, LBP, and GRAND TURISMO wont matter ???

well, think again.

gamesmaster3489d ago (Edited 3489d ago )

*sigh* how did i fail buy giving my opinion?

for a start, assuming apple has a larger hold on the hand held gaming market than Sony's psp. is instant fail.

50 million pirates?

"please don't make me laugh"

EDIT: 30 million xbox360 users bought the console to hack it too right? ...wrong

@ whoelse,

I met Veronica last year at E3, snapped a few pics with her. She is actually kind of plain looking.

Argento-Nox3489d ago

@Saren Arterius

Your missing the point of the PSP go. It's supposed to be a size closer to the iphone so you can fit it in your pocket when your on the move. LBP and MGS may not sell hardware, but if Gran Turismo is put on the PSP, it probably would move units.

PS3 FanBaby3489d ago

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.

Sitdown3489d ago

why is 50 million being tossed around? This unit (PSP Go) has not sold 50 million, so there is still time for Sony to come out looking dumb.

rockleex3489d ago (Edited 3489d ago )

If you can sign up for a 3G service with the PSP Go.

Imagine being able to play Monster Hunter with 4 other players online no matter where you are!

No need to find WiFi areas anymore! ^_^

Come on Sony! Combine your efforts and make a PSP Phone with Sony Ericsson.

shadow27973489d ago (Edited 3489d ago )

Why are people complaining about the analog nub placement? Granted, I haven't actually held it, but it looks to be in a better position than the nub on current models, closer to where the stick is on a DualShock.

I'll have to wait and hold it myself, but I'm planning on buying one of these when it comes out. I'm just hoping it's cheaper than the current PSP. And you can bet that if these things are cheap, they will sell.

BattleAxe3489d ago

Glad to hear that the PSP Go isn't replacing the PSP-3000 and that Sony is going to continue to support UMD.

njr3489d ago

Some people just don't get it. This release of the PSP is going to co-exist with the PSP-3000. If you can't get your gaming releases online for some reason, you get the PSP-3000. This is for those who will go for digital distribution all the way. Please don't give the "DD will fail if its not Apple or Nintendo" crap either.

Harri44443489d ago (Edited 3489d ago )

your fanboyism has blinded you. this little pockets sized system has 16GBz in it.

f7897903489d ago

This transition is as different as the gba to gba sp.

Also they took off .5" from the screen. What the heck Sony?! I like the big screen. Screw people who complain about battery life. I bought a second battery which I only need once a year when I go on vacation. The rest of the year, I have it set to a pandora in case I brick my PSP.

bjornbear3489d ago

It doesn't look bad at all, its quite a sweet design. I understand its a matter of opinion, but finishing industrial design BA, i've been exposed to a lot of products (ugly and beautiful) and i must say, its not atrocious, thats just being harsh =P.

And 50 mil tht bought the PSP didn't hack it, about 5% if not less hacked it, so don't go off making stuff up.

I do doubt the success of wont flop, but i dno hw it'll work against the DSi and iPhone...however, considering its the 3rd competitor, it'll b cool =)

it looks fine.. i think it looks like a great device and better than the past PSP devices.. it looks slick

REbirth3489d ago (Edited 3489d ago )

looks much better than the original very nice design...i just dont like the no umd support:( all digital?im still too old school to not have a phisical format!

DoucheVader3489d ago

No big deal, Resistance Retribution pulls off fine shooting action without another analog.

StanLee3489d ago

Since titles will be distributed digitally, are older titles going to be made available for digital release and would I have to repurchase my old PSP games if I choose to buy the PSP Go? Really, they just redesigned the PSP. I just bought a new one. This makes no sense. I really believe now the PS3 Slim is real.

XxSpiiKeZxX3489d ago

maybe thats what they meant bout keeping psp 3000 and GO together in the market
makes sense the guy said those who want harcopies go to 3000 while digital goes to GO

StanLee3489d ago (Edited 3489d ago )

Still makes little sense. If you're going to introduce a new SKU make sure you don't alienate the current fan base. That's like releasing a PS3 without blu ray, new adopters wouldn't be able to play the older titles. This has been my biggest problem with Sony of late; too many SKUs. Fans don't know what's current and what current hardware offers and how it differs from older SKUs. This was not necessary and wont stop piracy which is what they're hoping.
