Pachter: PSP Go is priced “too high,” won’t have significant impact on PSP sales

Speaking with VG247, Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter took the PSPgo to task, explaining that – without a price drop – it probably won’t be anything more than a teensy blip on gamers’ radars. “The Go is just priced too high for the perceived value. It may play music and movies, but most think iPod […]

  • PSN 'Game Cards' coming to NA, skipping UK

    Retailers aren’t too fond of the PSP Go, and with good reason. After all, who needs crummy old brick-and-mortar when every game you could ever want lies at your fingertips? Joystiq cornered Sony with this pressing issue, and – shockingly enough – got a response. Sony of America’s keeping retailers in its corner with a […]

    iPhone tower defence juggernaut Fieldrunners will release as a PSPgo Mini this week, it’s just been confirmed on the Euro PS Blog.

  • PSP go converter cable allows PSP-3000 peripheral use, looks stupid

    Joystiq’s got some shots of a something Sony’s calling a “Converter Cable Adaptor,” which allows the use of PSP-3000 peripherals on PSP go. Which is great. Unfortunately, it looks ridiculous. No date. Which is probably a good thing.

  • Report: EB Australia not stocking PSP go

    A Kotaku Australia report appears to indicate that EB Australia won’t be stocking PSP go when it launches next week. There’s no mention of the handheld on the store’s site, and shop staff apparently said, ““EB aren’t stocking it,” when asked whether or not the machine will be available through the retailer. EBA’s head office […]

  • SCEA sends mixed messages on Minis patches and multiplayer

    SCEA PSN boss Eric Lempel has directly contradicted comments made by SCEA senior account manager Justin Cooney on the matter of whether developers are allowed to patch and add multiplayer to PSP Minis. “You can patch Minis,” Lempel told Destructoid, “but we won’t have multiplayer functions in the beginning. “Basically, to get these developers on […]

  • PSP Minis - No multiplay, DLC or patches allowed

    SCEA chap Justin Cooney told Gama this week that multiplay, DLC and software updates have been banned from PSP Minis in an effort to “accelerate the approval process.” “When you look at it from a testing perspective, you have to do more QA. [Allowing those features] would defeat the purpose of having a dedicated service […]

  • Dutch retailer refuses to stock PSP go

    Large Dutch retailer Nedgame won’t be stocking PSP go this October, the chain’s told EG.nl. Why? Two reasons. Firstly, it sees the €249.99 price tag – €80 more than the current PSP-3000 – as too steep. Secondly, the fact the console doesn’t use physical media means it won’t be able to sell any games for […]

  • PSP Go battery removal a no-go because of piracy

    Sony couldn’t topple pirates with firmware, so the console-maker’s taking things to the next logical level with an all-out hardware based assault. The target: the PSP Go’s battery. “You won’t be able to rip your games and play them on the system, the firmware precludes that,” Sony’s John Koller told PlayStation Insider. “There’s no external […]

  • GamesCom: Videos for Digital Reader and PSP Minis

    Sony has released videos for both the Digital Reader and PSP minis. We have both posted after the break courtesy of Joystiq. For now, the Digital Reader is for comics only, but who knows what the future holds. Digital copies of Wuthering Heights, The Doppelganger or Atonement may not be just a pipe dream folks. […]

  • Rumor: PSN cards coming to Europe, launching with PSP Go

    Belgian site consoleshop.be appears to have cracked open a hidden vein of European prepaid PSN cards, and will share its bounty with everyone else on October 1. The PSP Go — in all its download-only glory — also launches on October 1, so pairing it with PSN cards makes sense. The cards will apparently come […]

  • Sony considered twin analog sticks for PSP Go

    Sony dev boss Shuhei Yoshida’s admitted that twin thumb sticks were a “serious” consideration for PSP Go, although the feature didn’t make the cut due to compatibility issues. “We also felt — like many users — that we wish we had a second analog on the PSP,” he said, talking in the latest issue of […]

    A story doing the rounds last week that claimed French retailers were refusing to stock PSP Go was debunked by SCEE this morning. The original JeuxVideo piece claimed that “major retailers” had possibly forced Sony to not launch the handheld in France thanks to its lack of physical media – which means no ongoing games […]
