PSP go, great first impression, bad second impression.
on October 7, 2009
I purchased this thing, and when I first recieved it, I loved it. It looked cool, felt great in my hands, and had lots of nice features such as the 16 GB hard drive. It is also considerably smaller and lighter than the previous PSP versions, and fit well in my pocket. Too bad those are the only great things about this device.
The new psp go, has the same technical specs as the older psp versions. NO graphic improvements, heck the screen size is even a bit smaller!.
The first thing I did was transfer all my music onto this thing. With it's 16 GB harddrive, I transfered over 1000 songs and it still had 11 GB space left. Pretty good. Then I transfered some movies. Both music and videos play well.
Then I headed over to PSN to check out the games, since I couldn't play UMDs on it. HERE i was disappointed. Some of the games I play such as dissidia, crisis core, DJ max portable, and many others are not available for download! So, basically there was NO way for me to play my favorite games. It had NO UMD support, and the only way to get games was from the PSN network, which had around like..100 games? THIS killed the product. Having an extremely limited game selection, especially if the games are already out but they're just not on PSN!.
Overall, this product still deserves a 4/5 stars though. I would NOT say it's the best thing sony has come up with, but in comparison with other portable gaming consoles, etc, it is still pretty good.
If i were to rate it based on my expectations of sony, I'd have to give it a 2/5 =[.
Anyways, buy this product if you're willing to wait until sony to put more games on PSN(Some titles may never make it). Otherwise, stick to a normal phat/slim psp :).
