The new PSPgo

  dagnammit 23:24 04 Jun 2009

$249 in the US and the pre-order price is at £229 in the UK.

The main differences on the PSPgo:
Smaller Screen
No UMD drive
Slide out design.

Games are to be bought only by download via the Playstation store. Currently Resistance 2 can be bought for £14.99 to £19.99 in most places on UMD but on the Sony download store it's £25. That's just one example... If games are download only then Sony set the price and have no competition!

I seriously hope this flops and people stick the their £140 PSP3000s.... I will not support killing off the High Street or losing out on the ability to trade in games! You can't trade in a download!

And I'm not even gonna start on the price difference between US and UK.

the chances of UMD when they refused to allow it to become a recordable medium.

Anyone bought one yet?

Gonna stick to my old psp, i see no reason to change as this means the games for it will drop in price by a mile.

Give it a month or so and the UMD games will be selling for like £5 each.
