Sony PSPgo


Can Sony's latest PSP grab the handheld crown?

I'd also say that the new control layout is a definite improvement. The old position of the analogue stick never felt right, making my hand cramp up after long sessions, particularly in games like Resistance: Retribution where you're making plentiful...

Ditching the disc slot and adopting a new slider form, the PSPgo marks a radical shift for Sony's portable gamer. But has it slimmed down too far?

Smaller and snappier with admirable multimedia ambitions, but the PSPgo's compromised layout makes gaming hit-and-miss

The Sony PSP handheld games console re-emerges better than ever before

Beautifully designed ; Decent build-quality ; Fits in your pocket ; Downloadable game store ; Bluetooth tethering

Fingerprints! ; Expensive ; No real killer apps ; Battery life is poor ; No UMD drive

Reports have confirmed our previous posts that the PSPgo will indeed be released without it's UMD. It seems also that the new console will include 16GB of internal memory, built-in Bluetooth to enable gamers to pair a Bluetooth compatible headset and a...

On the basis that Sony announce details this Summer, the new PSP could be launched in Japan later this year with the US following before Christmas. This makes a pre Christmas launch in the UK difficult, unless Sony launch in the UK at the same time as...

Sony PSP Go


The latest PSP, the Go, sheds some weight and a UMD drive in an effort to become the king of portable gaming devices.

Smaller and weighs less than the normal PSP.

Can\'t convert your PSP UMD disks to store them on your PSP Go, pricey.

Sony PSPgo review


The Sony PSPgo was one of 2009′s most-rumoured gadgets before its official unveiling at E3 in LA back in June. Now it's here at last. So does its UMD-free frame live up to the hype? Or is this a pricey alternative to the ageing PSP-3000? Read our...

Smaller than the old PSP

Cramped design, downloads cost more than UMDs

A nice idea, but the PSPgo is a flimsy gadget let down by high prices for its download-only games

The Sony PSPgo was one of this year's most anticipated gadgets. So does its UMD-free frame live up to the hype? Or is this a pricey alternative to the ageing PSP-3000? The good Pick up the PSPgo and you'll see its significantly smaller than the old...

The PSP Go is a nice idea, but the flimsy build and high prices for its download-only games let it down. Moving to downloads only is a bold move, but games should at least be reduced to match their UMD cousins. Compared to the Nintendo DSi, the PSPgo...

Review: Sony PSP Go


Today, I decided to bite the bullet and buy a PSP Go (I'll put it on expenses – thanks Boss). In the wake of some pretty unremarkable reviews, I wanted to check what none of the fuss was about – is the PSP Go the disaster I've read about or will Sony...

It’s clear why Sony have adjusted the PSP Go to digitally downloaded content. There is a real threat from the Nintendo DS in terms of popularity and where the PSP was always seen as a classier, sleeker and more advanced console, the advance of the...

The latest incarnation of Sony's popular PSP has been released. Does the PSP Go lead the system in an exciting new direction? Is it really worth all your hard earned cash? Check out our review of Sony's PSP Go to find out

Be warned that this is a niche type device to facilitate a growing trend of online consumerism. If you like how Apple is doing things with their App Store, this is essentially Sony's answer for you. You'll essentially need a wireless connection close...
