Is the PSPgo Sony's biggest blunder yet?

    To be honest I’m more than happy with the PSP I got on launch day in 2005, I’ve dumped all the games I own, compressed them and play them off the memory stick along with homebrew, emulators and some old PS1 games. I do see that’s a bit of a grey area but at the end of the day I purchased the games and feel I get a much better deal than PSP Go owners.

    To me the original plays all the games perfectly so I’ve never had any desire to get a PSP Slim, 3000 or Go.

    I cant believe Sony did that.

    I have 4 PSP's and a heap of games, would you need to buy the games 4 times if they were PSPgo's?

    What would this do for the second hand game shops, I doubt you could electronically trade in a game you didnt play anymore.

    I to still use a Phat PSP, the only problem is the spring on the drive bay door switch is broken, I have to lock and unlock the switch manually.

    Hope the 'go' is not Sonys way of the future.

    Yes you would need to buy a copy for every PSP you have

    You can’t trade the game in which is great for Sony but bad for you as the consumer, the prices are as high as retail games yet it’s only a digital download.

    Take Xbox Live Market place, retail games are on sale there that were released 4 years ago, the price £20! Where as you can buy them second hand for £5 with the dvd, case, manual and not have to use 7gigs of hard drive room to keep the game. I see the same happening with PSP game downloads, the price will never drop and you will end up paying more than you do for buying the game on UMD.

    The PSP was doing bad as it is, I can’t see the PSP Go doing anything to change that… it’s not really a new console, just a new model which is overpriced and doesn’t do much the original PSP from 2004 / 2005 can’t do.
