Summary: For those who complain about the battery. This is necessary because the games are downloaded. Sony has to be certain that the device cant be hacked or they would loose millions of dollars and companies would not release titles to the device.
Pros: Screen has clarity. Amazing design.
Cons: Most people are aware of the problems with the device so it is not needed for me to comment on that. Cough, Wifi really 802.11b what are you thinking? Cough
Summary: Why make a "gameless" handheld when most of the time you can't connect to the internet to get the games??????
Pros: Light and portable.
Cons: I owned a PSPGO for less than 24 hours because I COULD NOT get it to stay connected to my wireless internet. I NEED it to be wireless because that was the driving point for me to purchase it. Upon searching for solutions I came to the conclusion that it will sometimes work and most of the time no...
Summary: Alright, If I could sum this up in one sentence, I'd say "Go buy a PSP 3000 and avoid the PSP Go entirely." I don't know what Sony was thinking (or maybe they weren't.) when they made this.
Pros: Lighter, more portable construction. Basically the same specs as it's predecessors.
Cons: More cramped controls. Smaller screen (though same res) Embedded battery (When it dies, so does your PSP.) No UMD drive. (Sorry if you bought any actual, physical games, you can't use them.) System isn't as easy to securely hold. Old Wireless B networking. Have to download each game you want to p...
Summary: With an "all-digital" system, the manufacturer wins on many levels: -No manufacturing costs -No middleman (Game Stop, Wal Mart etc) -No used game sales (Oh they hate those!) -You no longer own the game, you basically own the idea that you own the game.
Pros: -Easier to carry -No weird load noise/vibration -Sony Quality -Great battery life
Cons: -Smaller Screen -Easy to scratch -No hard copy of the game (!)
Summary: Maybe I am just bias because I work at GameStop, and going 100% digital will most likely be the day I'm jobless.
Pros: Lighter, brighter, anti-glare screen for when you are outside, like the psp-3000. 16gb internal memory capacity.
Cons: Smaller screen than the PSP 1000,2000,3000 models by about 1 inch diagonal. Won't take psp original games. Looks like cartman...oddly enough feels and sounds like him as well. 16gb internal after the firmware update falls to 14gb free and usable memory. games you download from the Sony online sto...
Excerpt: I've owned a PSP 3000 in the past, and sold it because I never played it. When I saw a PSP Go for sale, I bought it, because I missed playing my old PSP games. I'm annoyed that I even bothered. The thing with the PSP Go, is that it has no UMD loader. At all.
Summary: Well I bought this for my sons 9th birthday. Great device BUT how about the free games ?? To get them you first have to download a a special theme and register to get the code emailed out to you. This takes several days and can take up to 30!
if you get one for a present trade it asap for a psp3000

Excerpt: Christmas morning i dont know who was more excited me or my son i finally got my psp go from my wife. i read the hype and i was really excited. and then when i had it in my hands my excitement turned to frustration. I really dont kno what going on with sony the ps3 now this.
Summary: If you are a mother or father thinking of buying a PSP GO for your loved one, REALLY make sure this is what they want! Here's why: Unlike the original PSP, the PSP Go DOESN'T play PSP games that you buy in the shops. Sounds ridiculous, but its true.
