Yes i know its a psp but looked like a good deal just because of the free games. Quite possibly cold; never really been a psp person.

Buy a Sony PSPgo Console console from Play.com and receive 10 games for free via download from the PlayStation Store! Once the PSPgo is set-up, customers need to visit the PlayStation Store and download the promotional theme. This then triggers a voucher code to be emailed. This voucher entitles the customer to download the following games:

Gran Turismo PSP

LittleBigPlanet
Wipeout Pure
Pursuit Force: Extreme Justice
FIFA World Cup
Need For Speed: Shift
Avatar

I regard this as a failed product. Now they are boosting it in a desperate marketing attempt to sell more. Why didn't they give 10 free games away at the start when people cared?

I would have upgraded to this from my PSP Phat, but there was no UMD trade in and no console trade in from Sony. So I sold my PSP Phat and will never buy this product (well, I will if it's £50 maybe).

Expect to see more offers in the run up to Christmas or Jan sales.

More details of the promotional offer in my "Misc" thread:

Ten free games offer for PSP Go console
POSTED BY: fanpages - offline, 2 months, 1 week ago

I would never buy anything form ShopTo.net ever again, but their price is significantly better:

EXPIRED - PSP Go + £20 PSN Voucher + 10 free games £174.85 @ Shopto.net

"Sony PSP Go Console - White with £20 PSN Card" £174.85
Last Few - Usually delivered in 24 hours

I have just requested that this thread should be unexpired.

FYI: I purchased a pre-owned PSPgo that had never been used/registered (see my "Misc" thread above) & I finally finished downloading all the ten game titles last week.

Initally tempted to buy one of these until I tried playing games on it when on demo at John Lewis. Very awkward to hold and play. My old PSP has better feel, longer battery life though screen not so bright. I'll wait for the PSP 4000.

Some forums say the PSP Go will be around £100 by Christmas to clear space for the PSP-4000 which will use the UMD disks


Don't believe everything you read on the World Wide Wait.

From the above article you quoted (dated 15 July 2010):

"The news world is filled with PSP 400 release information. Sony is believed to come up with PSP 4000 model in October this year followed by its 3000 series which it launched in October last year. This system will contain sliding screens and will include should buttons for some games."

The PSP-3000 was available from October 2008.

This would probably be a more popular type of product if it was priced sensibly at around the £100 mark..

ive had a nintendo ds for 3 years

had a psp 2000 for 1 day

psp is superior technically but is ridciously unreliable....so much so after 1 day it wouldnt play any umd disks......i had to factory reset it and all is ok.....i also bought a new game from the game store which was damaged - though thats game's fault!!

but unlike the ds the psp seems far too fragile to be truly portable

One of the most useless piece of gadget you can get. Yes it boasts a grand display and has a browser but now you can get phones which can do that.

I did own a PSP once, but it was quite worthless and I would rather spend that money getting an Iphone/HTC desire. If I could change my decision I would have surely chosen a Nintendo DS.

I am sorry to say that for £199 would be grossly overvaluing a piece of electronic junk

That is odd. From my experience a failure of that type is not indicative of the range.
Was your PSP console bought from new, or pre-owned? Do you know if it was treated badly by the former owner?

I have at present...

1 x PSP-1000 (Japanese) [new]
1 x PSP-1003 (UK) [pre-owned]
1 x PSP-2003 (UK) [pre-owned]
1 x PSP-3003 (UK) [new]
1 x PSP-N1000 [PSPgo] (UK) [new, but bought as an unwanted gift privately]

I have also had another PSP-1003 (UK) that I sold within the HotUKDeals "For Sale" forum in a fully working state.

My kids have between them...

1 x PSP-1003 (UK) [pre-owned]
2 x PSP-2003 (UK) [1 x pre-owned; 1 x new]
1 x PSP-3003 (UK) [new]

None of these consoles have failed. Both of the PSP-2003 units leave home on a regular basis & come back working on each occasion. My PSP-1003 console ventures outside my four walls a few times per month & this is still going strong almost five years after it was manufactured.

Granted, most of our Nintendo DS consoles (many DS, & a single DSi) have failed but they are used more frequently. The hinges on the case are the first to go or the upper screens become broken with pressure being applied to the lid.

The Nintendo Game Boy Advance SP has been our most resilient console to date. They just keep going regardless of abuse; we have not had any failures & they have been used since my kids were 2 years old (and up).

Yes, Nintendo DS cartridges are easier to store & less prone to damage (some of ours have gone through the washing cycle & still continue to work) but, as you said, that is a different discussion.

Of course, the PSPgo does not have that issue. You can use one Micro M2 Memory 'Stick' card & never have to remove it, or just use the internal memory of the device.

well since Sony have said that the PSP go is a "market failure" why should anyone buy a console that they will always have to by games at a premium price?

The PSP Essentials range on (the) PlayStation Store are not a premium price.

Other digital delivery titles are kept near to or at the Recommended Retail Price so that retailers are inclined to sell the hardware. If the disc-based titles were more expensive then retailers would not make as much profit with repeat custom.

However, I (& other HotUKDeals members) regularly list temporarily discounted or permanent price reductions:

PlayStation PSN Deals and Reviews

The PSPgo, though, was just to "test" the public's perception of digital-only content availability.

See the recent interview held between MCV(UK.com) & Sony Computer Entertainment Europe President, Andrew House:

Sony: We’ve learnt a lot from PSPgo (by Ben Parfitt, Tuesday, 8th June 2010 at 1:00 pm)

SCEE president says UMD-free handheld was a test of consumer behaviour

Though it’s looking unlikely that E3 will be the venue Sony chooses to unveil its in-development successor to the PSP, the platform holder has admitted that pioneering digital-only handheld PSPgo was a test for its future plans in the handheld sector.

Sony has never released sales numbers for the machine. When asked if it regards the PSPgo as a sales success, SCEE president and CEO Andrew House replied: “It was introduced in a mature lifecycle to learn more about what the consumer wanted and we’ve definitely learnt a lot.

“Is that measured by success in sales? I don’t think it is.

“One of the reasons we launched PSPgo was to understand where that consumer behaviour was going. We were getting signals from consumers that this was the kind of device that they wanted. But we need to recognise that consumers like their packaged media library.”

Whether you agree with that explanation or not, just earlier this afternoon the same web site is reporting...

Physical still dwarfing digital sales (by Ben Parfitt, Today at 12:01 pm)

EMA report claims that disc-based retail sales still account for 80-90% of games market

A new study entitled ‘The D2 Report: Discs & Digital – The Business of Home Entertainment Retailing’ from the Entertainment Merchants Association claims that traditional boxed product still accounts for the vast bulk of sales in the video games market.

It claims that combined DVD and Blu-ray sales totalled $17.9bn in the US in 2009, accounting for between 80-90 per cent of the total US video games market and dwarfing the value of the digital market by a factor of nine.

“While there has been a great deal of focus recently on the slippage of revenues in the DVD market, the untold story is that consumers' embrace of home entertainment remains very strong and packaged media is the preferred delivery instrument,” EMA president and CEO Bo Andersen stated.

“Digital distribution is clearly an important segment of the home entertainment market and will continue to grow in market share in the coming year. While it is tempting for industry outsiders to say 'disc is dead,' as the saying goes, reports of its demise are grossly exaggerated.”
