Sony PSP Go – Which “P” Stands for “Poop”?

It's tough to imagine what in the world Sony was thinking with the PSP Go. This Ars Technica review sums it up pretty well.

In the middle of a recession, Sony has released the most expensive portable system on the market, and as an added bonus the company seemed to go out of its way to give the finger to existing customers. You can't even trade in your older system for the newer one to help with the price, because then you can't play your games.

As that dog on Conan would say: "The PSP Go is a great system… for me to poop on!"

We have two DSes in our house (which are almost never used), so I'm hardly the expert in handheld gaming (I don't even use my iPhone for many games other than Wurdle). This certainly won't change that…

  1. I love my PSP "Fat" (PSP-1000). I still play it to this day. The screen size is nice, the wireless is OK (I still wish they'd come out with a PSP with freakin WIRELESS G AT LEAST) and I can even play old NES/Sega/SNES games on it. What's not to love?

    I can't imagine playing on that POS-GO - it seems like using the controls the way they're designed would make it uncomfortable on your finger joints and your wrists. That, and having to install an update on AC power just to play the game you just bought is a deal killer - why even go portable? And what's even an acceptable charge rating to install the updates?
