Sony’s PSP Go! is a sleek, sexy and altogether overpriced handheld that forgoes traditional storage media in favour of digital distribution. Way of the future, right?

Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo of America’s corpulent overlord thinks there’s no reason for the product to exist.

In an interview with the Washington Post, Nintendo’s animated Roast Beef had a few less than kind, but delightfully subtle words about Sony’s new device.

He goes so far as to say that the Go! has a “fundamental concept problem in terms of ‘Who’s it for?’ and ‘What’s the benefit?’ "

"I have the utmost respect for all our competitors," he said, "but it’s interesting to try and answer the consumer question of ‘What’s in it for me?’ in that product."

Other than bragging rights and a thinner wallet? Not much, really.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
