Excerpt: The PSP Go is more like an alternate than an upgrade. Chances are that if you already own a PSP 3000, you also bought a memory card with it so you can save your video games and media. For most of us, we bought a memory card with enough capacity so we won't need more. This game has the same things as the PSP 3000 with the addition of bluetooth, 16 gigabyte internal memory, and a good design. I wish they could have done more to this to make it more appealing to people.
Excerpt: The PSP Go has got to be one of the worst piece of marketing around. But I wouldn't say that without reason.First of all, just like the iPods, it's overpriced. It's maybe worth $199. But even that's hard to justify seeing as a full console like an Xbox 360 or soon the Wii can be purchased at the same price. You can go on saying "when you add the TV, etc, it costs more", but strictly talking as a system, it's a hefty price.
Excerpt: I bought the original PSP (1000) at launch and later the PSP slim (2000) and I loved them both. Then the GO! came out and I decided to buy it thinking that it would be better. I was wrong. The biggest downfall is that it can't play my old game disks I have ti buy them again from the playstation store (most of the time my games aren't in the PSN store). Also I was hoping that the hardware would be better but it is not.
Pros: Ability to store multiple games without needing to upgrade the memory stick is fantastic, no need to carry around multiple UMDs. Design is slim and lightweight and fantastically portable.
Cons: Where to begin? the whole system is let down by a very poor user interface when it comes to downloading or managing games. There is no current support for MediaGo on Apple Mac computers with no sign of this being amended, the only remedy being to buy a co
"Worst PSP ever. Sony absolutely fell head on with this."
3 June 2010
Pros: None I have found
Cons: Price, game ownership, service and support from Sony, local retailers such as Game Stop not carrying any accessories to it or even endorsing it. Sony customer service act as if it is foreign to them when it comes to supporting it.
"Nifty console, but frustrating online user experience"
26 January 2010
Pros: Sleek and nifty console. Solid graphics and PSP game play once you eventually manage to download the games.
Cons: I have to echo the many negative points raised in other reviews. But in addition, I want to emphasize the shocking user experience with the online store. Very frustrating. Needs a total rethink to make it more intuitive and user friendly.
Pros: A small hand held game unit, with a nice screen, handy controls and good battery life. I really haven't tested its music capabilities,, with head phones.
Cons: Out of memory error messages while TRYING TO BROWSE the internet. Can't download music from Napster To Go, etc. Its just a cheap yes cheap game device that doesn't even compete with the new phones and small Mini Laptops.
"Overprice, not backwards compatibility, useless gamepad"
4 November 2009
Pros: Slick looking, cool slide screen, no more UMD, Bluetooth.
Cons: Overprice, not backwards compatibility, gamepad is more useless then the old PSP, games are more, what the world do I suppose to do with all my old games and movies. Battry is built in so you know what that mean.
"Critical errors made in design, but overall very good."
20 October 2009
Pros: Much smaller and lighter then the PSP 3000. Solid feel to the controls, better then the PSP 3000. Bluetooth for stereo headsets and PS3 controller connectivity, a wired headset port of the standard kind.
Cons: Bluetooth signal is soooo weak, that the BT headset must be in close line of sight to the PSP for connectivity. A arm or just a hand is enough to block the BT signal. Having the PSP Go in a book bag or side pocket will almost totally block the BT.
