E3 2009: Sony Officially Announced PSP Go – Again

1 min read

Sony PSP Go

You have to feel for Sony with one of their major announcements, the PSP Go, being leaked a couple of days before their conference and taking a very large bang out of their conference.

Sony earlier announced that they will be releasing the PSP Go on the 1st of October (USA – $250) to be sold alongside the PSP 3000. The PSP Go will have 16GB of inbuilt flash memory, 1 analogue stick, a sliding screen, no UMD and a downloadable games library.

So everything we knew already, what they did announce which could be awesome for PSP owners is that they are slashing the price of the PSP dev kit by 80% which instantly means we should be expecting a whole heap of new titles in the near future.

Other great news was confirmation that LBP and Grant Turismo will be landing on the PSP Go at launch.

Full specs after the jump.

  • Approx. 128 x 16.5 x 69 mm (width x height x depth)
  • Weight: 5.6 ounces (including batter)
  • CPU: 333MHz 
  • 64MB memory
  • 3.8-inch display (480 x 272 resolution)
  • Built-in stereo speakers and microphone
  • 802.11b WiFi
  • Bluetooth 2.0+EDR
  • USB 2.0
  • Memory Stick Micro slot
  • Analog video out
  • 16GB storage

So is it worth it? I am very worried about the cost of downloading games locally but if it works through local bandwidth I guess it won’t be so bad.
