Good Go-ing, Sony...
Somebody at Sony is likely to be feeling a little insecure in their future today having allowed the forthcoming PSP Go to be leaked via Sony’s Qore gaming show, which was released before the products unveiling at E3.
The Go, which Eurogamer has managed to grab some official images of, features a sliding form-factor that’s 43 per cent lighter than the current PSP, a 3.8in screen and eschews a UMD drive in favour of 16GB of internal flash memory. The PSP Go will, unsurprisingly, have Wi-Fi and Bluetooth and direct access to the PlayStation Network meaning no more PC-based game, demo and video downloads – hurrah.
The device will be released in ‘Fall’ and won’t replace the current PSP, instead sitting alongside it – presumably go give people time to transition to the UMD-less platform. It looks like we can look forward to LittleBigPlanet, Gran Turismo and Metal Gear Solid on the PSP Go, too. If those aren’t awesome (potential) launch titles I don’t know what are!
