Sony Psp Go Pics Leaked – Price and Release Date Revealed

by


Check out these photos of the new Sony PSP Go portable videogame console / media player that just hit the Interweb.

The PSP Go is a new handheld that lightens the load of the older PSP models by making games available via wireless download or on Memory Stick Micro cards. Bye, bye UMD! It’s been nice knowing you.

The PSP Go will feature 16GB of on-board flash memory for storage of downloadable games, movies and music from the Playstation Network. It looks like they’ve revamped the controller to slide out from under the screen to maximize screen real-estate while keeping the console small (the Go has a 3.8″ display – just a hair smaller than the PSP-3000′s 4.3″ screen). Too bad they kept the stupid single analog nubbin. I hate that damned thing.

As you can see from the icons below, there’s also Bluetooth connectivity in addition to Wi-Fi.

Word on the street is that Sony will still sell the PSP Go’s larger PSP-3000 brethren, but I wouldn’t expect them to keep making a mechanical drive-based system for too much longer. I’m sure any plans to keep making those is only because of the relatively high price of solid state memory. As those prices drop, so will the need for any sort of optical media.

Sony has revealed that the PSP Go will be released in North America and Europe on October 1, 2009, at a price of $249 /€249, and in Japan on November 1, 2009 for 26,800 yen. Check out the Qore June 2009 video clip below to see an early preview of the PSP Go in action:

Is it just me or does the PSP Go look a whole lot like the Mylo?

    I’ve uploaded a better (HD Quality) Video on youtube. Oh and I love everything of this new PSP!!! When it’s closed, it is the prettiest thing that I’ve ever seen. The only things I don’t like are the start + select buttons and the analog. The rest is perfect!! I can only hope for it to have a touchscreen!

    I love the look of the Go but im not sure the redesign justifys me buying the new model.
    what real advantage over the older version does the newer model have.
    theres no UMD-drive so that makes you wonder if the games are going to be downloaded or cartridge based?
    guess until the E3 Show when all details are released we wont really know.

    • PSPGOATANK says:

      It’s all downloaded. No cartridges. If this has a reliable, good music player and a good battery life it will be the final nail in my iTouch’s coffin.

  6. Idothepro says:

    Who the hell do they think will buy a psp “go” for 250 euros when 250 us dollars are equvalent to 178 euros!!!!!!!!

  7. poomaster says:

  8. civilchaos says:

    this takes the michael,
    do they even check the exchange rates anymore?
    As of today:
    $249 equates to
    £152.49 in sterling and
    e178.21 in euros (sorry can’t be arsed to insert symbol)

    There’s been a bit of shifting lately but when have they ever been the same!?

    Great machine! Got one the day it first came out (Oct. 1,2009) at my local GameStop store. Sharp and clear, easy to use, well worth the money. Has TV or Monitor out as well and doesn’t need a component cable(like the 2000 and 3000) to display PSP games on the screen. just pick up the Composite cable ($10 cheaper than the component one) and you’re set. Great bargin, glad I purchased it.

  18. james braselton says:

    HI THERE THE DIFFERANCE IS IN THE CPU THEY DID A TEST SAYING THE PSP GO TOPS AT 480 MHZ CPU AND 64 MB OF RAM VS 32 MB OF RAM AND THE PSP HAS NO ONBOARD STORAGE UNLIKE PSP GO AT 16 GB A 3.8 INCH SCREEN VS A 4.3 INCH SCREEN BESIDES I THINK A 4.3 INCH IS TOO BIG TOO BE A PORTABLE DEVICE AND CURENT PSP 3000 CPU IS ONLY AT A 333 MHZ CPU VS 480 MHZ CPU FOR THE PSP GO SOO THOSE UPGRADES I THINK YOU MIGHT WANT TOO DIFFENTLY UPGRADE EXPECAILY IF YOU LIKE TOO DOWNLOAD GAMES MOVIES MUSIC ITS KIND A LIKE TOO THE 16 GB IPOD TOUCH BUT THROUGH THE PSN STORE WITH A PSN CARD LIKE ITUNES CARD FROM APPLE
