Finally confirmed...... the first details and pics of PSP Go! have been leaked out from Sony.
It's hard to tell what specs it has exactly, as far as I know right now:
- 16GB built-in memory.
- memory stick micro compatible.
- Bluetooth pairing with cellphone.
- smaller & 42% lighter(?) than PSP-3000.
- PSP-3000 will still be sold alongside PSP Go!
As I suspected, it doesn't sound like it has a camera, touchscreen, definitely no 2nd analogue nub, and all the rest of the stuff that all the wishful thinkers keep throwing into the rumours about it. It's just a PSP for downloadable content only. Which makes it..... ummm, any PSP that has PS Store access......... but maybe the full specs haven't been announced yet.
EDIT: people have noticed that we can't see a USB port, there's "wireless" written on the side, but does that mean "Wi-Fi" or "Bluetooth"? And I'm wondering where the volume buttons are--
Is it too late for me to run out & buy that black PSP-3000 Ratchet & Clank bundle from Rogers for $130.00???? Probably....
I hate to be a jerk about it. I certainly was initially skeptical of the PSP-2000 when it was first announced too. I was re-reading my first G.A.P. post about it 2 years back, I was a wet blanket big time. So maybe this new PSP will turn out to be a good thing.
Like I said, this is basically 2009's version of the PSP. I guess we'll see another "hardware refresh" in 2010.....
It seems a bit odd to have the analogue nub inside with the D-pad on the "outside", you know? I would think it'd feel better to have the analogue nub on the outer edge with the D-pad more inner.
While it's nice to have built-in memory, I sure don't like that our current memory stick pro duos won't fit in this new system.
Also looks like the headphone jack is now just a regular headphone jack. Not compatible with the current video out cables or remote for PSP-2000/3000.
