So is anyone getting a PSP Go?

The PSP Go arrives in stores on Thursday.

So are you going to get one? One the upside, it is a nice form factor. However my personal opinion is that the downloadable content is too big of a downside.

Yes, I know that it is no different than buying games on the iPhone but the last time I checked, iPhone games cost between $0.99 and $10 for the most part. I'm also not sure how folks are going to like paying $30 to $40 for games that have no trade in value.

Another thing is that Sony is asking $249.99 for the PSP go while the PSP 3000 sells for $170 or less. I'm not so sure that Sony is offering that much of an improvement to justify the price.

Frankly I think Sony has another failure on its hands. However I do think they will find a lot more success when they drop the price to $199.

So what say the Sony Fanboi's??

I'm gonna get one just to have it not sure how much i'll actually use it other than a few games. But i'm probably gonna wait till the price drops. $250 for a psp go and the ps3 is $299 i don't think so.

Don't talk about it! Be about it!

I was going to get 3 of them for my boys but I dont know anymore. The downloadable games seemed like a plus at first so I wouldnt have to deal with them loosing the stamp sized games that they curreently have on their DS's but the more I think about it the more I dont know if it will work out. If one of my kids has a game one of the others want to play they have to use his PSP to play it and I can see that going bad real quick. I may just get them the older PSP's or something instead.


On the flipside I may have to pick up a PSP Go for myself

I just wish they offered more space than 16 gig, I can see that gone in no time.

It does have a Memory Stick Micro port. Those cards have up to 16GB of storage.

But guessing you can store your games there but it will probably be locked to the PSP's hardware ID. I'm sure it will get hacked but Sony probably doesn't want your kids sharing games. They want you to buy three game licenses instead.

Yeah Im going to wait and see what the reviews are after the release and see how it all works. If its anything like itunes though where you could have 2 or 3 psp's linked somehow sharing games then I may still be down but I doubt it knowing sony.
