Sony have revealed that people who purchase the new disk-less PSPgo, which will be launched next week, will receive 3 complete-game downloads from the PSP PlayStation store.

This news should go some of the way to comfort those who wish to buy the new machine, but already have a collection of games on UMD disks that are not compatible with the new PSP devise.

Users will need to log onto PSN via their existing machine (Make sure a UMD is inserted) and register for PSPgo Rewards. Once you have received a confirmation email with the promo code, you can then logon using your new PSPgo and choose from 17 popular games including:

1.Buzz!: Brain Bender
2.Buzz!: Master Quiz
3.Daxter
4.Echochrome
5.Everybodys Golf PSP
6.Killzone: Liberation

I dont understand this bit

"Users will need to log onto PSN via their existing machine (Make sure a UMD is inserted) and register for PSPgo Reward"

What about if you dont have a existing psp and why do you have to have a umd inserted

Muy understanding is that the three free games are for people who are upgrading from standard PSP to PSP Go. This "PSPgo Rewards" programme involves registering a PSPgo on PSN, then logging on to PSN with your existing PSP with a UMD in the drive, which allows you to download a special PSPgo theme, which then presents you with a voucher via email for use on the PSPgo.The voucher can be redeemed for three out of 17 available titles

hmmm that is confusing, i am not getting one though, rip off in my opinion, i played on one in germany ( at a electrical/gaming event) and it felt too small if anything, was quite heavy, and doesnt offer anything exceptional compared to the model currently available for less than half the price

It's an incentive for people who currently own the older PSP 3000 console, thus this promotion allows them to receive 3 games for free when they purchase a PSP Go. :thumbsup:

Isn't that the system Sony are offering to existing PSP owners who are upgrading to a PSP Go.

I cant believe I am voting an "andywedge" deal cold

blame the product not the poster

Sony claim they will support new games on both UMD and download.

I dont think that support will last long.

game shops will not like supporting it because the software profits will disappear and there will be no resale of pre owned with the massive profits they make on that area.

Makes sense now thanks for the link.

sorry andy, cold from me.

products gonna be an overpriced flop. you cant use the games from your original psp as it doesnt support them and have to download them games from the psn. the reason they're trying to make it look like a deal with adding the "free games" is simply due to the fact that all you have already will be worthless.
please read gamespy link for details: http://uk.psp.gamespy.com/articles/102/1028562p1.html

The way to go with the PSP Go was a price point of £99 - £150 with a UMD slot and then either half price games on download (to compensate for not being able to trade them in) or weekly rentals or some such, whereby you get a code which activates the game for a limited time. That might have worked - this won't

Reckon this will be your coldest ever deal Andy!!

I actually prefer the look of the slim PSP to the PSP Go as well, so all in all its cold from me
#11
i agree with the price being over inflated, but it doesnt make it any less of a deal. that is upto anyone who wants to buy it.

for anybody who has voted it cold, could u please post a link to a better deal for the same product???

A better deal is for the existing psp slim remembering that this whole format is now in severe decline

Sony appear to have given up on the PSP and certainly are ******* the existing psp owners, I predict this will be the death knell.

I have one and it is a lovely little machine, poorly supported and exploited to death by Sony

i agree that the slim is a better deal. but it aint the same product. and anybody who intends buying a pspgo, then this is a hot deal.

You don't have to compare exactly like for like, very similar will do. For example a 100k BMW would be voted if you could get a better spec'd faster Porsche for 90k etc etc. PSP slim and PSP Go are pretty much directly comparable IMO (DSi less so) and even you think the PSP lite is the better deal :thinking:

What happens when you fill the 16gb memory btw?? (Or are the games very small in terms of GB)

You can use MediaGo, which comes as a disc with the Go, or you can just download off the internet, and you can use this to store all your games on your PC so if you do go over 16GB you can just store the games you aren't playing on your PC until you want to play them. Or you could buy a Micro M2 card and expand the memory available, currently you can get Micro M2 cards up to 32gb, so you'd be able to get your memory to 48gb overall. Games are normally between 500mb to 1gb each, sometimes a bit more or less.

Lots of people do question this product for good reason, but for people with small UMD collections or like me have never owned a PSP before I think it's a really great device because I need something as portable as this and I prefer how the Go looks compared to the 3000. However they're both great products, and Sony are still supplying the 3000 so at least it gives the consumer the choice to buy what they want and if people don't like the Go then just don't buy it :?

It was only a matter of time before portable gaming devices started using digital media only.

I mean who wants to carry around a sack of umd's when you can have all the games on the consoles hard drive.

Personally I shan't be getting a PSP Go, I've got a PSP 2000 and I'm just gonna buy a 16gb MemoryStick, but I shall only be downloading games from now on, to me it makes your portable games console much more 'portable' as you haven't got to lug your games around with you cos they're always right there on the console.

No-one's forcing you to trade your old PSP for this, you just have a choice, and if you really want to swap your original PSP for a PSP Go then 4 free games isn't too shabby in my opinion.

Just my 2 cents.
#21
Sony showing everyone how to shoot oneself in the foot.

Dreadfullly shortsighted on the part of Sony......who on earth is going to want to buy this and have to download their games at FULL PRICE (and on top of that have no resale value cos you cant sell them!) - when you can get a PSP3000 and pick the games up on Ebay for a few quid and sell them on after???

Youd have to have a screw lose to buy this....or not worry about money.

The deal may be technically HOT, but the whole concept to me is a Kamikaze move on the part of Sony..... they are so obliviously shortsighted with this concept that i often think they are currently running Ebay!!

But then who wants to HAVE to download their games direct from Sony for £25 then not be able to sell them on when youve completed them??...whilst NOT being able to buy games cheap second hand???

Sorry but anyone with half a brain will steer clear of the PSPgo.....that is unless money is no object, then the PSPgo will be perfect.......

Timed perfectly to coincide with the economic downturn.....a console thats MORE EXPENSIVE THAN EVER to own and run.....makes you wonder who on earth makes these bright ideas up at Sony!!

this psp go is a bag of crap
#24
Sony are not selling you games at full price, they are way over priced. I guess they are probably rrp, eben though nothing ever sells for that (except Call Of Duty - £120, lol). Now that these companies have shaped the gaming sector towards the mainstream consumer expect to have you eyes clawed out further and further unti You can see your own ****.
#25
I'd quite happily swap my original PSP for a smaller model. I read that when it launches in US there will be 16,000 pieces of downloadable content, which includes TV programmes and films, as well as games. My biggest worry is that the 16gb memory and any extra is still going to be gobbled up fairly quickly.
#26
Don't know if this has been mentioned, but could you not just buy a very large memory stick and use it in your existing PSP slim? Would that not give it the same functionality as this device anyway?

I was excited when I first heard about this console. But they haven't solved some of the basic problems the original had! For me, I was always annoyed that there was only one thumb stick!!
#27
Sorry to be the first to say it, go will become hot when someone hacks the firmware.

Why would i upgrade froma psp with endless downloadable games at no cost to one where i can only get the games from sony.

Hyperthetical of course, i wouldn't condone piracy

lol i cant see retails supporting the psp go long

after all they make there money from software
#29
this post is not aimed in the slighest at the poster, but at sony

This is a good deal, but only if you want a PSPGO and have an old PSP. But in reality this is a ****-take.

I ask you to think about the people who spent the money on the release day of the PSP, or/and then on PSP Slim release, or any of the other incarnations. They have spent the money on UMDs, which are not cheap, only to get a large number of average games (don't get me wrong there are a few good ones like MGS:Portable Ops, Crisis Core, X Men Legends II, God of War, Tekken, Everybodys Golf). Not everyone has used a Pandora Battery and scammed games from the net.

Now Sony decide to release a new model of the console........that completely does away with the main format of use of the previous models? SO they've come to you and said ok, these UMDS you have don't mean anything anymore, all the games you actually enjoy on our very awkward console...you can't play until we decide to make them available on PSN. Which if you look at PSN could take forever as they have been very very poor with PSP content.

If customers were valued, then Sony would have made a hell of a lot more than 17 games available. Instead they have released this console at a totally obscene price, I mean I really do actually wonder about their marketing dept. to pitch it at this price considering its offering virtually nothing extra to the PSP except a new design that may not even be an improvement? It doesnt even have a camera like the DSi!

Also 16GB is a joke when you know Sony and you know that 32GB and 64GB will be released in the near future. Ah but the console is compataible with Sony's memory cards too, convienient.

Don't get me wrong, I am a Playstation fan, I swear by the PS3 I love it to pieces.

I just think that the whole PSPGO thing stinks and I badly want it to fail because it so so unfair to current PSP owners and even those buying it are gonna be screwed over when the bigger capacity models come out.

Sorry, I am incensed everytime I hear about the PSPGO and this mickey mouse "Rewards" scheme!

Great post and agree 100%

i bought a PSP at release (1st sept 2005 I think??), and really thought it would knock Nintendo of the top spot in portable gaming. But as you say, most games have not been the PS2 quality we were originally expecting.

This is something I never even considered.. :?

Once they have sold you the PSPGo and maybe a case to go with it and a pouch and a hard case or something what then? They're cut out of the loop. It would be in retailers best interests to refuse to stock it.

The concept of the thing makes no sense to me. You would assume it is cheaper to make now as it will use some of the old hardware and as time goes buy it is just cheaper to manufacture the same components. It no longer has a proprietary drive (UMD) which saves costs. 16GB memory probably costs Sony next to nothing. Any consumer is a captive audience you WILL buy your games direct from Sony and Sony will dictate the price. Every consumer will also be required to buy new games.
So with all that, why on earth hasn't Sony subsidised the cost of the PSP?
If they have any confidence in their anti-piracy measures it would make sense to put the PSP Go out at the cheapest possible price undercutting the competition (DSi) and with a guaranteed return on the game sales.

As for the price of this deal, yes it is the cheapest i've seen, with the nice bonus (if a little impractical) of the free games.

I say impractical because if this:

is correct then how would you trade in your old PSP against the new one? Or even sell it to build funds for it?
I would suspect that this would be a problem for most children/teens with limited funds.

Sorry that went on a bit ;-)
#33
Sorry mate has to be cold.

It is all but a con from Sony to get people to pay upto 30% more for games that are cheaper to produce than UMD games and 60% more for a console that is less flexible.

The fact you can't trade in your games or swap them with mates and to have to pay extra for the experience over the same UMD counterpart, shocking.

Just because this is the cheapest it does not make it a good deal.
#34
A lot of thieves will change their tune if this turns out to be hackable.

DO NOT BUY THIS

They already said no umd conversion available

psp go is a failure
#37
Thanks for the info on that.
Can't even see what advantage this new type gives!
#38
Also, the sound was awful on the last model
#39
People should be happy about the PSP GO - it means a drop in price for the old model PSP's which, according to most people is not much difference except for form factor.
People can moan all they like but ultimately it's good for the consumer.
#40
I have had all other versions of the PSP and got myself ready for the PSP Go by selling off my PSP 3000 and any games I had. I knew I would be without my portable gaming for a while but decided I would get a bit more on ebay if I sold before the Go came out.

Now they want me to register for downloads with my old PSP, I feel diddled.

Deal Good, Sony Bad.
