Tomorrow is the day … I just got notice that my PSP Go! will be arriving in the morning, and since tomorrow sits right in between my wife’s and my older son’s birthday, it means I can play for a little a bit without being the worst husband/father in the world!
Yet I can’t say I’m overly excited – I have posted several times about the ways Sony have disincentivized buyers repeatedly: high price, no pack-ins, no UMD transfer, and so on. Worse yet, I’ve been playing the PSN download version Gran Turismo PSP, a game that was in development when the original PSP was launched (!), and comparing notes to someone playing the UMD version and there seems to be little boost moving away from the disc-based media in terms of load-speed. And, sadly, while I wasn’t enamored with the game, because I have the PSN version I’m stuck with it forever – a major downside of digital downloads is that they are yours forever!
So what about everyone else?
- Do you plan to buy a PSP Go! ?
- Do you currently own a PSP?
- Were you waiting for the PSP Go! and now decided to get a PSP-3000?
We’d love to hear your thoughts and opinions!
And naturally I’ll be back with opinions on the PSP Go! and the new games and features at the PSN Store!
