The PSP Go - The Future is Here and it’s About Time
The PSP Go has been the subject of a good amount of discussion lately, with good reason. That Sony announced it’s next handheld has any number of reasons why it should be surprising. The PSP has had limited success (though you’d be incorrect labeling it a failure), and many thought Sony would simply focus its energies on the console market. On top of this though, it seemed as if these days the PSP was beginning to receive the kind of efforts and support it needed from Sony earlier than just these past few months.

PSP Go has system features current model PSP's won't have
Sony's PlayStation.Blog.Europe recently answered questions from the community on the new PSPgo (PSP-N1000). There were several more details noted on the PSPgo that weren't on the spec sheet or announcement at E3 2009. Here are a few of the noteworthy features as mentioned by Adam Grant, European Product Manager for PSPgo:
Game sleep function:
"You will be able to operate the XMB™ (XrossMediaBar) while suspending the gameplay temporarily." This won't be available for the current PlayStation Portables (PSP-1000, PSP-2000, PSP-3000 models).
Clock and Calendar Application:
You may have seen the Clock application on the PSPgo in Kaz Hirai's hand at the E3 2009 press conference. That is the Clock and Calendar application, which isn't planned for the earlier PSP models either.
On the PSPgo's battery life:
"We have adopted an embedded battery to realise a smaller and lighter PSP system. The battery life is equivalent with the current models meaning approximately 3 to 6 hours for gameplays and approximately 3 to 5 hours for playing back videos."

PSP Go App Store?
The incoming PlayStation Portable Go!, the new gaming handheld designed by Sony, is set to ditch the UMD drive, which has been the main content delivery system since the PSP was released. The company has said that all the games released for the PSP would be available both in physical form and as digital distribution packets.
Now, it also seems that the new handheld will be getting more content via something that will probably resemble the Apple app store. Destructoid has gotten news from sources close to game development at Sony who are saying that small applications that will not be appearing at retail will be offered through a fresh service on the PlayStation Portable Store at prices set to range from 2 to 6 dollars. The official reveal should be made in August 2009.

PSP Go: Sony may have confused hardware for service
Sony is making waves with the PSP Go, although what many gamers are failing to realize is that the ability to buy games online and go purely digital already exists with the product they own. Everyone is talking about the hardware, when the PlayStation Network as a service is the big story... and that already works with your less expensive PSP.

What can gamers expect from the new system? Digital downloads are now going to be faster and easier. You can choose the games that you want to download right upon launching the system. There are expected to be 100 games available for downloading from Sony.

It is expected that Sony will have to release some different versions that are compatible with the new system.
Gaming fans have been anticipating how the new PSP Go system will work, and how the new sliding screen feature will work. The screen on the PSP Go is 3.8 inches and the sliding feature reveals the buttons to operate the handheld system.

Gamers Eagerly Await PSP Go System
In the world of handheld gaming, any new system that comes out is highly anticipated by fans of portable gaming systems. This is true for the new Sony PSP Go portable gaming system. There have been a lot of rumors surrounding the system including what some of the features will be, what games will be available and what changes have been made to the system from previous versions.
Some of the changes to the new PSP Go system will delight fans, while others may be disappointing because the proposed changes did not go through. What are the changes that gamers were waiting for? One of the biggest things that Sony had wanted to add to the new system was the dual analog sticks. Many gamers were excited to experience the true dimensions of gaming with dual analog sticks, but Sony was not able to produce this feature on the new system. While some gamers are disappointed about that, Sony did serve up some good features that many should be pleased with.
The dual memory system allows gamers to choose from 8 GB of memory and 16 GB of memory. This allows fans to put as many or as few games on their system as they would like. One of the favorite features of the new system is that there is no UMD. This means that you can download tons of games right about launching the system. It has a lot of internal storage, which allows users to choose from either 8 GB of space or 16 GB of space.
Gamers that have been anticipating the new games that will be available with the PSP Go system will be impressed to see that there are new games set to be released with the PSP Go that include Jak and Daxter, Gran Turismo PSP and Metal Gear Solid. The price or price range has not yet released. The older gaming systems are not going to be compatible, so there is a chance that Sony will re-sell the older content through the online store. Sony will likely have to figure out something to do about the lack of compatibility between older games and the new system because many gamers will want to play their older games on the PSP Go as well.
Information that has been released about the PSP Go system indicates that while Sony was not able to include all of the new features that they had originally hoped for, there are still many new features that are sure to delight gamers. Sony is hoping that the improvements over older versions of portable gaming systems will keep customers coming back to purchase the new system.
