Sony ready to unveil it’s PSP Go at E3 tomorrow | Dvice
Ok so here we go, they have a new PSP out which is their 4th gen called PSP Go. This PSP is smaller, same widescreen but it flips up so you can use the control buttons below the screen instead of on the sides of it. It then closes so you can watch movies or TV shows or even use it as an mp3 player and not have any buttons pressed while it’s in your bag.
The PSP Go has a 16GB flash memory as well as a Memory Stick Micro slot which is a different name from the one that is currently in the PSP which is Memory Stick Duo so no you can’t use the one that you already use in your current PSP. They took away the UMD slot so all those games that you bought you can’t use anymore. You have to buy all your games via the PlayStation store online.
It also has Bluetooth Support. I don’t know what that means for the PSP though. When I think of Bluetooth I think of a cell phone earpiece. What does Bluetooth mean for a PSP Go?
On the video (which is the 2nd link above) at the E3 the guy talks about how people like to buy the actual physical product. There will be a new media manager for PC so I’m guessing that maybe you plug your PSP 2 or 3 into your computer via the USB and it probably converts the UMD into files that you then upload to your PSP Go. But that is just what I think that means, I don’t know for sure. Who knows, but he did mention something about being able to buy the UMD even though you can’t use it in this thing.
I don’t know about this one. I like my PSP 2000. I didn’t upgrade it to the PSP 3000 when that came out because the only upgrade it had was a mic on the front so you don’t need a headset to call people with Skype and it had a more matte finish on the screen so you don’t get glare from lights or the sun. With a $250 price tag I’m still not convinced that I need to upgrade to the PSP Go.
I kinda prefer having a UMD and being able to put it in the UMD slot when I want to play a game which of course means searching for the game I want but that’s perfectly fine by me. I don’t know if I want to fill my 16GB flash memory with games then have to use a memory stick to add more. Call me old fashioned lol.
