Sony PSP Go Handheld Console

  • Excerpt: Although I’m fine playing angry birds on the iphone, I sorely miss the arcade games exclusive to the PSP. Mine was reduced to scraps when I couldn’t get it fixed a year ago and opted for a different console. I was surprised that the prices of Sony’s …

  • Excerpt: The PSP Go is a decent product. Compared to the older/ normal PSP, the PSP Go has some critical advantages and disadvantages. I’ve owned the PSP 3000 series so there is something to compare to. The PSP Go has an internal memory of 16 GB, which the original PSP …

11 January 2011
  • Summary: It's been 5 weeks and still waiting for the 3 free games. I've already ordered the PSP3000. The GO is going on sold on auction. STAY FAR AWAY FROM THE GO
  • Pros: Small and portable - no media, all loaded internally. LOL
  • Cons: No media, cannot use UMD disks. Cannot share games. Cannot get games included, been calling support every week, they keep saying they will ship. The playstation network account required to even play games is confusing and useless. Everything is dependent on the playstation account. Games purchase...

Terrible Product

Adrian H., Newegg
26 December 2010
  • Summary: I will be returning this product. Save yourself some time energy and money, buy the older model.
  • Pros: It's small and pretty.
  • Cons: Have been working on getting the free games that came with the device for over 36 hours! Can not get any credit card to be accepted to even buy a game. Does not use my old games. Does not use my old cards. It seems that if it came with free games they would be pre loaded on the device so that you...

Where is the love?

Ryan P., Newegg
9 December 2010
  • Pros: Got one at Lamestop for a paltry $99. In mint condition too! The screen blows away my previous psp slim and I currently have dl'ed Peace walker, portable ops, and FF8 from the PSN store. It does exactly what I expected it to do and I am pleased with the purchase.
  • Cons: Dismal battery life.

Pretty Good Depending on what you are looking for

Soo K., Newegg
7 December 2010
  • Summary: This is all about what you are looking for! Most people are like "The PSP Go sucks!" well it does if its not what you are looking for. I think Sony try to do something like Apple is doing with their Itouch, MP5 with great gaming features, which I like a lot.
  • Pros: Much more lighter and smaller than the other models of the psp, looks kind of sexy lol, still has all the features of a psp, 16 GB and expandable memory if you want, right now come with 3 free games! (SOCOM Bravo Fireteam 3, Little Big Planet, and Rotchet), Bluetooth, buttons feels a lot better l...
  • Cons: No UMD, Take forever to download FULL size games, limited selection in PSN, smaller screen (very little difference), Putting music can be messy, the controls can be a bit weird if you are used to other psp models, awkward placement of the volume, music, brightness buttons, web browser is not the ...

Good for new PSP owners

Kevin Y., Newegg
25 November 2010
  • Summary: * Battery Life: The PSPGo has a great battery life. I've never timed it, but outside one annoyance, I've never had it run out on me in between charges. The problem comes in the auto-on feature. If the screen is flipped up, even a small amount, the device will come out of sleep mode.
  • Pros: Very portable Beautiful screen Plenty of storage space Good sound Very good battery life* Good for movies/music/games/etc
  • Cons: Can't buy used games/sell old games (doesn't affect me, but I know it's a big deal for a lot of people) Battery life* Organizing games in the system is a pain**

Awesome pocket system for bus rides

18 November 2010
  • Summary: Great device, would recommend to anyone that doesnt mind carrying even more electronics with them wherever they go.
  • Pros: No more UMDs to lug around, everythings delivered digitally which is a welcome luxury. Wireless connectivity for portable internet and small form factor makes this a welcome addition to your boredom-killing arsenal.
  • Cons: Yet another device to lug around, too bad they just dont make the PSP a phone already, which is pretty much the only thing its missing. Although you can make Skype calls over wireless, thats not really a feature, just something to show off. The new digitally delivered games are going to be smalle...

Coming from a PSP-1000

Anonymous, Newegg
27 August 2010
  • Summary: Overall the PSP go is a superb for what is was meant to be. For anyone wondering why the made the screen smaller, well it was because of the battery power. To make the system so slim, they had to use a small battery, which resulted in a lower power output.
  • Pros: It is a nice system. My favorite part is the R and L triggers. They are easier to press than the old ones and they don't collect dust. Buttons have a tactile feel and respond very well. The download only set up is nice. They have all my favorite classics for download like Crash the Bandicoot and ...
  • Cons: It is a fingerprint magnet. Some of the games in the download shop are way overpriced, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker is $40, which seems like way too much. No UMD drive means no backwards compatibility, to make it worse, Sony offers no legacy program. That means that you can't register your game...

Don't Buy.. Sony Support is a Ripoff

Lawrence M., Newegg
6 July 2010
  • Summary: Buyer Beware.
  • Pros: Small size ok as a MP3 player.
  • Cons: The PSP Go I bought on 12/2/10 died after 4 months. I had spent $150 on games and movies. Sony sent me back a refurbished unit under warranty that was empty. After many hours on the phone getting the run around about redownloading what I had paid for. I was sent a denial email that said I had dow...
