One of Sony’s “worst kept secrets” was finally confirmed during Sony press conference at the recently held Electronic Entertainment Expo.
The PSP Go is the spiritual successor to Sony’s Playstation Portable (PSP) handheld gaming console. I said spiritual successor because Sony stressed that the PSP Go is not meant to replace the PSP but is expected to be a complimentary device.
The PSP Go will be 40 percent lighter than the current PSP-3000 and will also be 50 percent smaller. It will have both WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity. Confirming rumors for the device that has been running rampant on the internet months before, the PSP Go will not have a UMD drive. But gamers will still be able to download games directly to the device through the Playstation Store and stored to the 16gb of onboard memory the device will have.
The PSP Go will be available in both black and white colors and will retail for $249.99 starting October 1.
