Sony PSP GO - Black
Missed playing ALL PSP games
I picked up a PSP go when I went back to playing hand held games thinking it would be convenient to get my games with out having to to carry my games. Then about two months into owning the system I kept waiting for staples of the PSP catalog to come to the PSN. Don't get me wronge, I loved the screen and how small it was but not getting to play all game, no way to move my older UMD's to the new system and then finding out not all new games will be on the PSN was just too much. Now it is just not the games that is a draw back. One of the features I was looking forward to was using a PS3 six axis with the system when I had it run through my TV. What they don't tell you anywhere is how to do this, or that you need to own a PS3 to do it. All in all I think it could have been a great system had Sony really tried to make it work insted of just trying to get something out the door quickly to go against the DSi, and that it was very telling at E3 when they called the Go an experiment.
Very Underrated system but also ridiculous
The PSP GO was a great system as well as a great idea although sony not knowing what to do with this system messed it up a lot. What it needed was a touch screen and a camera and would have been great but sony saved that for the now dead Ps Vita. Compared to the regular PSP ( performance wise) the Go is better the screen is just a few cm smaller than the regular PSP and put together you can hardly tell the deference is size. The only down fall which is major is everything is download only and there is only one store the playstation store which means sony can charge what ever they want and you have to pay for it, that is really what killed this system with no flash sales or anything like that, they wanted you to pay full price for a game that you can buy in gamestop used for a few dollars or new for 20 even at the time the PSP was popular the games on the Playstation Store was more money than buying the actual copy. In the end this was a good system but sony did not know what to do with it and they thought every one was a millionaire to pay $39.99 each for games that have been 4 years or older.
psp go the next handheld system
I got this system last week and i thought that it sucks, but its awesome. the psp go its really the next handheld system to go anywhere, You have 16g but you can get more up too 32g which is ok and you download them instead of buying the umd which they took it out, the psp go its very slick and well perform desing. I have a psp 1000 and i got tire of caring all my 15 games. so I bought this psp and its way better i have 7 games already downloaded and i still have 11g I though it will wasted more but it dint. Now its more smaller and easy to careed to your pocker or in your hand. The battery life still the same which is a little sad, and the internet connection is really fast in the psp go. The system has a new instalation that when you are playing a game and you want to listen music, you can pause the game and do something else which is a good instalation. I thought it was going to suck but it dint. there more things to know from the psp go, but for now i recommened it to everyone who likes hardcore games on the go.

Greetings all. I would like to take some time to express my love and affection for the PSPgo system. I purchased my system about one month ago and have fallen in love with it. Some of you who are looking into purchasing a portable video game system need to understand some important things about the PSPgo. First thing, there are a number of negative, bitter reviewers who either never owned the system, or never gave it a fair shake. Second, if you want a system for grandparents and children, the Nintendo DS is for you not the PSPgo. Third and final, do not get worried about the price. This system has so many options it pays for itself( Skype, WI-FI, 16G of memory, small design, beautiful screen, plus much, much more), and if you purchase it now, Sony will give you three amazing games worth $70 for free (Socom 3, Little Big Planet, Ratchet and Clank). So take the $250 and subtract the games and you have an amazing gaming system for $180!!! For those of you who say the IPhone is the future of gaming, I just finished playing Final Fantasy 9 and God of War Chains of Olympus. Leave phones for talking and texting, not gaming.
The PSPgo is an amazing improvement from the older PSP models. The 16gb of internal memory is great for keeping loads and loads and games. The design is perfect for slipping in and out of your pockets (if you don't buy a case.) And the small buttons and screen are just the right size i always thought the buttons on the PSP 1000-3000 were way too big and my analog stick had a lot of problems eventually leading to it breaking in the system. The smaller screen isn't a problem either even though some say so, Personally, I like it. It gives more crisp and clean graphics and it's not too much for your eyes too gather like the old PSP screen. The improvement with the speakers is nice too and if someone tells you that the downloads take forever they must being downloading a HUGEEEE game because I've downloaded some of the bigger games off of the Playstation Network from multiple places with weak wifi and stronger wifi and the most time I've ever waited was 45 minutes to an hour. So for the price and all the clean-up from the previous PSP this is a must-buy for any gamer hardcore or casual.
Nifty li'l gadget!
I bought the psp go 1 year ago and I have to say, this is a really cool device! Its nice to have a portable gaming system and all of your games fit comfortably in your pocket ! But just like every other product, there are some flaws with the psp go. it obviously lacks the umd drive so if you're one of those people that like having the physical media, this won't be for you. something else that sorta bothers me about the games is, you pay the exact same price as you would if you bought the physical media (for example: a umd game that's $39.99 is still $39.99 on the ps store.) there is no discount on games despite the fact that you're not paying for physical media. another thing about the go is after a while, your hands can feel a bit cramped. overall, if you're on the fence about getting a psp but don't like the fact that you'll have to tote around umd's then give the go a try.
Finally!Sony has released a sleek product that fits in your pocket!! It has 16 gb of internal memory, 3.8 inch screen (just a tad bit smaller than that of the other PSPs), and blue-tooth (which allows for teethering and few other things) and slide out controls. All-in-all it seems pretty good, and since its lost its UMD drive (which means you'll have to download the digital copies of games) you won't have to worry about carrying all those discs around or losing anything. But then comes the price. I mean sure 16 gb of internal drive does seem inticing, especially for those of us who threw away, lost, or are new to the PSP, but for a few more bucks you can buy the new PS3 slim.Not to mention you can buy a PSP-3000 bundle with a chosen game and then just upgrade your memory card for about the same price. But in any case, whether it be the PSP GO or the PSP 3000, make sure to consider all the pro's and con's so you can make a heartfelt decision on your own,Hope i helped =] Happy Gaming!
After having this system for less than a year, this handheld ended up being traded back in due to the lack of games that could be played on it. The portability and features on this handheld are great, but the content provided for it is a huge turn off. I ended up having to trade mine in so I could play games that I was anticipating would be put out for digital download, but were sadly not. Had these games been put up for digital download this system would be the best hands down, but the lack thereof should be highly considered to any future purchases. If you want to sacrifice game variety for portability, this system is for you. However, if you are looking to play a vast majority of games stick with the 1000, 2000, or 3000 models. This system is not for hardcore gamers. Other than the lack of quality games, this is a great handheld that is very versatile and portable.
This is a great system. In my opinion, it's better than the psp 3000. Reasons: It actually fits in you're pocket, unlike the psp3000 you never have to go to the store to buy games, you can just buy them from your psp go it fits in your hands MUCH better. but besides that its better than psp 3000, it also has a very crisp screen,the audio is great, and when you're watching a movie on it the sound is so good it feels like you're actually there. they not only have new games but they have old psp games. but heres the deal. i would have bought the psp 3000 if the games for it were small little cards like the ds. but the games for the psp 3000 are big discs that are really hard to carry around. the psp go is SO much more portable. the graphics are great, and it's just a really good system. IT'S THE BEST PORTABLE GAME SYSTEM OUT THERE. better than the ds and psp 3000. awesome, worth the money.
Sony said that the psp go was unfairly judged. I tend to agree. It's not supposed to be a brand new product but instead a new iteration of a product. So those of you who hate it, suck it up and get over the fact that it may not be for you. The price tag may be an issue for some people but when you really think about it, a 16 gb ipod touch was *** dollars so there is a price overlapping which shouldn't be an issue when people never complained about the ipod touch's price tag. I'm not a fanboy or anything but i've owned a psp go since october and it is one of the best portable gaming systems of all time. If you don't like the idea of all downloadable content then get the psp 3000. Why do you think that there are 2 psp's on the market? The psp go caters to consumers who do not want any form of optical media and want all downloadable content in a smaller package. The psp 3000 caters to those consumers who still want optical media and are not ready or do not wish to download games.
