The PSP Go news doesn't stop! Compliments of the leaked June Qore episode comes the release window, photos, video and confirmed specifications for the latest hardware revision for the PlayStation Portable.
Looking very sweet out this FALL!
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.
apple? small games? "i knew that sony was dumb" ..dumb enough to sell 50 mil PSP's?
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
50 millions of users who buy that thing just to hack it and play PS1 and SNES games. You failed my friend.
yea? 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.
*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
Veronica is so hot.
@ whoelse, I met Veronica last year at E3, snapped a few pics with her. She is actually kind of plain looking.
@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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Glad to hear that the PSP Go isn't replacing the PSP-3000 and that Sony is going to continue to support UMD.
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.
your fanboyism has blinded you. this little pockets sized system has 16GBz in it.
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.
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 this...it 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
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!
No big deal, Resistance Retribution pulls off fine shooting action without another analog.
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.
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
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.
but it does not say if it still has the touch screen does it or am i just not seeing it in the info
touch screen is a major feature so if it did then the guy wouldve pointed out
Thats what I was curious about also. It would be nice to have a touch screen but I doubt it. Also, what would be the point? The current PSP doesn't have a touch screen. Its a novelty when you already have buttons.
and make up for any losses on ps3.wants ps3 makes profit,then it's all mega profit after that. sony sold over 100 million ps1s. sony sold over 100 million ps2s. they want to sell 100 million ps3s.and so far,they are on track after 2 years.8 more to go. now they want to sell more psps. with a umd-less psp,they cut costs of making umds,packaging,shipping.all the consumer does just like at the PSN store,is buy virtual content like music,movies and games with NO PACKAGING.that's mega money saved. if you can't figure it out,that's smart business. and for those asking for another analog stick,you want sony to shut out those that have the old system as microsoft did with hdmi?how stupid are some of you?that's cutting out 50 million customers if they make dual analog games. think first before asking for something they can't do until psp2. apocalypse.........
but that was suppose to be done with the psp 3000 and if not then perhaps 4000 the fact is, is that psp has been sittin here since 2005 so it wouldve been great to finally have a succescor besides when u here PSP GO you speculate that its going to a major upgrade it is however hardware wise and beside its not shutting off 50mil since they could still support the psp if u think ike that then wouldnt u say every game company shuts out customers when they release a new suscessor??? what if sony decides to release ps4 a year later?? bak in 06 where the ps3 was released did sony backstab ps2 owners no man
you must be one of those individuals i was talking about with lack of intelligence. you want sony to cut off gamers that bought the previous psp so that they can make dual analog games for people like you? get educated.that doesn't make sense. sony didn't add hdmi for ps3.or add bluray.they all had it from day one.all ps3s had hard drives from day one. all ps2s had dvd playback from day one. all psps from up to this point play all psp games.future psp games will play on the old and new systems.virtual games but still psp games.you add an analog stick,you shut out the old consumers.how does the old consumers play without a second analog stick?......thought so. get smart and go away now. apocalypse.............the system is fine as is..........
hey brains since u know so much then tel me why would u call it PSP GO what ur talkin about is a what?? a PSP wat i was refering to is that pple were anticipating a second analong b/c it had a different name and besides dual analogs would be a smart move b/c then it makes PERFECT sense to upgrade i mean pple still have a psp 1000 and ONCE AGAIN its not shutting out the 50mil pple what if PSP GO was the succescor
People dont make much sense to me. That thing looks slick and sexy. I dont see what is wrong with the aesthetics of it.
it looks cool ... but that's it ..the analog stick look even harder to use than the current one ? i guess that's a BIG NO to fighting games or intensives actions games ... with a better stick , metal gear and god of war would have been EVEN better on psp ....
Why did they shrink it? I don't care about battery life.
does it have a new processor or something to make it better then the psp now or is it a remodel
SONY IS GOD!
It's the fn MYLO that became a PSP. Horrible button config placements for a TOP handheld. I was looking to upgrade from the 1000 to the 3000 and decided to wait for this info. I'll get the 3000 then wait for the real PSP2. Not buying it. I'm sure it might have some new functions but this is not a PSP. I wonder what 's the idea behind this device? Really.. MYLO CNet http://reviews.cnet.com/pda... MYLO http://www.youtube.com/watc...
So, what is the exact problem with going with a similar design of another Sony product? I can understand if you have a go at Sony for what looks like rather poor judgement on button placement, but your issue just seems to stem from it looking like another Sony product. Talk about being over fussy.
why Sony decided to turn the Mylo into a psp? Do you think the MYLO have taken off?
This thing is sexy as hell. Day one purchase for me. The handheld market is the only place I agree with digital distribution. I love it.
Yeah that is a definite day one purchase for me as well. It's much slicker than the original PSP which was uber slick to begin with.
The layout doesn't bother me at all. It looks like a PS2/PS3 controller with the second analog stick replaced with a start/select button. If it gets a lot of support with downloadable games and the price isn't too high then you can count me in. Won't have to worry about the UMD sucking up all of the battery life too. It's really coming down to the price for me.
WISH this PSP had a touch screen :(
Nothing except a couple games and showing off. Booooo.
because i have a iphone and its great, so to have PSP with a touch screen would be amazing. so many more options
id say *ok i guess...* if this was another psp model whit a brighter screen, BUT, this model is AWSOME! jus tfor the model!!
Christmas isn't too far off. =/ What's shocking is the downloadable game lineup they're going to have. 16GB is perfect too. It's what I have on my iPod Touch.
Is a tad smaller, but the slide out controls are sweet. I am hoping they will have some prototypes available at E3. I want to get my hands on this baby.
wish they had improved the web browser. if psp could browse the web like an ipod touch i would be really happy.
But even the ipod touch has slow web browsing 'cause of the memory limit. I'm sure that'll be fixed though with the new iPod Touch/iPhone and PSP 2 (in a few years).
They haven't listed the RAM details. This is a complete redesign so they might have extra RAM for browsing along with an improved browser. Wait for E3.
yo check this out. that thing is like the psp web browser on steroids! same interface, but MUCH faster! http://www.psp-hacks.com/20... but you need a homebrew enabled psp. cheers :-)
I will be buying this just for the portability of it...no more UMD FTW!
I hope that this will come packed with a few digital distribution games...that will help me decide whether or not to upgrade.
I have got to say that this is an engineering marvel. How the hell did they shrink the PSP into something that tiny?!
no dual or touch screen im dissapointed it doesnt really change anythin but blu tooth and downloads. dammit sony wtf you had a simple task and screwed it i better see a psp2 in 2 years
im still gonna get it i cant not get it new love for psp
i'd also like to say to sony haters. what more can they do to tell out they run this sh*t
Cant wait to try it out
I thought it looked horrible the first time i saw it but it looks decent. I hope they show a lot more of it at E3
its defo getting bought day one. love its looks, the possibilites and it has bluetooth. its gonne be great. also, does the screen look maybe like a touhscreen? also is that an HDMI port? that would rock!!
Yeah,PSP is a delightful console to pirate.Neo Geo games,Supernes and NES games,Megadrive games,PS1 games,SCUMM games...What's the matter? I ehhhr,am not a pirate,but that's a good "feature",really. I dig the design.Think about battery life! without UMD and with a smaller processor...We could play Monkey Island at the beach,for hours :D Sorry about deviating
Ewwwwwwwwwwww!!! WTF is that? Looks like an oversize HTC phone.
i keep seeing it and wondering......is it some analog-esq control? i know how anal (with due respect) kazanori yamauchi (creator of gran turismo series) is.... and for him to release gran turismo on this must mean some control perfection..... i know sony is hiding something.......
just been thinkin: what happened to the camera? i heard from lots of places it would have a cam? hmmm.. its not s biggy also do you think it has motion control in there? oh edit: there a mic on it!! down the bottom, between the controls.
I'm going to say what I've always been saying since I saw this contraption. Ugly!
