Sony PSP Go Review

Digitaltrends
4 November 2009
  • Conclusion: The newfound pocketability of the PSP Go makes one undeniable step forward from the PSP-3000, but Sony takes too many simultaneous steps back to justify the $250 price tag. The missing UMD drive strips it of compatibility with old games, and introduces more technical hiccups than we care to deal...
  • Pros: Sharp, vibrant screen; significantly smaller form factor
  • Cons: Smudgy black surface; proprietary power and data connector; proprietary Memory Stick Micro slot; smaller screen; lousy, unimproved browser; minor comfort sacrifices due to smaller size; less flexible than UMD-equipped PSPs

Sony PSP Go ( White)

CNET
13 October 2009
  • Summary: The PSP Go is a sleek and sexy redesign, but its high price tag and some frustrating caveats mean it's not a must-have upgrade for existing PSP owners--at least for now.
  • Pros: Sleeker, slimmer PSP design; 16GB of internal storage; expansion slot for additional memory; Bluetooth connectivity; good integration with PS3; can access multiple downloaded games without needing to keep bulky UMDs at hand; you can pause and resume game states.
  • Cons: Pricey, despite lack of touch screen and second analog stick; smaller screen (but same resolution); awkward placement of analog stick, volume, and display controls; unable to play UMD games or use old PSP accessories; uses obscure and expensive Memory Stick M2 format for memory expansion; battery...

Sony PSP go

PC Magazine
13 October 2009
  • Conclusion: Sony's latest portable gaming console, the PSP go, may be almost as compact as an iPhone, but Sony took away more functionality than it added.
  • Pros: More compact than previous-generation PSPs. 16GB onboard storage. Bluetooth.
  • Cons: Expensive. Performance is identical to last PSP model. M2 memory cards. Slow 802.11b. Non-removable battery. Smaller display. No UMD optical drive: If you own PSP UMD titles, they must be repurchased as downloads.

PSP go

AV Club
4 September 2009
  • Excerpt: Sony’s latest incarnation of its handheld looks like the “If They Mated” result of a brief, unsatisfying, boozy affair between a PSP-3000 and an iPod Touch. In recent years, surely to Sony’s chagrin, the original PSP has become a hardcore gamer’s machine.

Sony PSPgo review

Stuff.tv
6 August 2009
  • Summary: It’s fair to say that the Sony PSP, which debuted way back in September 2005, has been well overdue a facelift. In 2007 it received only minor liposuction with the Slim & Lite, while last year the PSP-3000 brought underwhelming tweaks like a new screen and microphone.
