Hey guys! I'm not trying to be mean, but I'm not much of a PSP fan... I have the original PSP, and my 10 plus PSP game collection pales in comparison with my 60 plus DS game collection, so I never dreamed of buying a PSP Go. But I saw my friend's PSP Go at college today and for some reason or another, I fell in love with it. I'm highly considering purchasing one, but I did some research and I heard rumors that Sony is going to relaunch the PSP Go, but for a cheaper price. I see now that it's bundled with 3 great games, but the price is still a little steep for my liking. Should I wait on buying the Go since a price drop is imminent? Or is now the time to buy since the 3 game bundle is more than worth it? Also if the relaunch happens, will it be the same exact Go model for a lower price or will there be changes to the system in addition to the price drop? Also, is it useless if I don't have a ps3? Thank you.

I'm planning on getting a PSP 3000, but I have a question. What size memory stick should I get? I don't want to get something with too much space that I wont end up using it, but I don't want to shortchange myself either. So how much memory should I get? I only plan on using it to play games BTW.

Depends on what games and how many games you want. But I think 8GB is a good option for the average user, it's a lot of space for a games, depending...

I'll throw in based on my experiences with the PSP go vs. any other model.

Until (or maybe unless) there is a price drop, there isn't much point in getting a Go at the moment, based mainly on it's lack of support from developers like Square-Enix,not being able to download or rip games you already own on UMD, and having to pay full price for electronic copies of games.

Don't get me wrong, I love my go, and it works great for the situation that I bought it for: being on deployment for 6 months, I can stock up on games and have a small, quick-pausing, PSP with me. The other big plus for me is having the digital comic reader (which seemed tacked on based on initial support). I don't think I've ever really bought comics before, but now I find that the Go is a good format to read them in. And with them giving at least a handful out for free, it gets you into series and genres that you might not normally read.

There's also the laziness factor. I hate trying to track down some obscure RPG for the PSP, and for whatever reason, the current PSN lineup is pretty robust, saving me the hassle.

In essence, the Go after a price drop would make a better addition to people who already have another PSP. My opinion would change on that if either or both of the situations I set out above changed or they started doing discounts on games similar to the way steam does.

just a point i want to make about the PSP Go and Bluetooth. its not limited to PS3 controllers (though that is a great feature), but unlike any other model can also hook up wireless headphones, and even teather to your cell phone for constant, portable internet acsess!
#-44 Posted by lambalot (1798 posts) -

I dont know which one to get myself. I had a PSP when it was first released but sold it about 2 months later as there wasnt many good games released on it.

I love the look of the PSP Go, but the prices on PSN for the games put me off plus Squre Enix dont want to put there games on there so no FF or Kingdom Hearts.

The 3000 is bigger and can play UMDs, but again im concerned that in the future Sony might scrap the idea of UMDs and just use Digital Download. I know theres rumours of the PSP2 being UMD free (and i know we wont know until if/its announced).

I can get a 3000 with 1 game for £130, or get a PSP Go with the 10 free games and a £20 PSN Voucher for £175.

This is the hardest decision ive had to make when it comes to games consoles lol.

Sony won't scrap UMDs, at least not while the original PSP is still alive. You don't have to worry about that. The Go is good if you like the portability and free games, but overall, the 3000 is going to be a lot better if you need to play Crisis Core and Kingdom Hearts.

Thanks, ive been asking around some other places and just about everyone says 3000. So im going for that, also i couldnt pass on playing Kingdom Hearts.

So does anyone know if the PSP Go is getting a relaunch/price drop anytime soon, or no?

PSP 3000 is the easiest to use but is still a bit large ( I own one)...the PSPGO is almost to small and the controls seem mashed together :(

Really? IMO, the size is OK and the controls can get comfortable once you get used to it.

im Buying a Go for deployments.. ive never had a psp before so the umds arent an issue.. and the internal memory is most def worth it at the walmart price off 199.99 just depends on your situation a GO isnt made for everyone. i got a buncha ps1 classics on my ps3 that i can put to use over seas. gonna start FF 8 and 9.
#-28 Posted by Zachbpd (63 posts) -

I don't feel like an upgrade from PSP 3000 to PSP Go is needed at the moment, because the features are pretty much the same at both (except for the internal memory, but I'm ok with switching memory cards). I heard a lot of people saying the PSP 3000 is to big: It feels big because the controls are on the sides of the LCD, and at the GO PSP(where the screen is also smaller) the buttons aren't too much fun the play with..

I've played on both consoles Dissidia and for example when you are trying to make an attack, sometimes you have to look at the buttons you're pressing. At the PSP 3000 it was fun because I could still see what the character's doing. But on the GO console it was kinda weird to look up and down from the buttons to the screen all the time.

So at the moment I'll just stick with my 3000, simply because a slide PSP isn't enough to convince me to buy it..

#-27 Posted by DRAGONPIECEZ (1463 posts) -

Rumor has it the Go is getting a $50 price-drop on friday! Does that mean Walmart will be selling it for $150!? I'd totally buy it at that price. Why aren't there any Walmarts in my area!? :evil:

#-26 Posted by CooperThief (648 posts) -

There's a new God of War PSP bundle for $199.99.

It also includes the movie Kick....I'm not sure if I'm allowed to say it here.......

But it's got a sweet black and red design. Looks sweet. All I've got is a cruddy black PSP. :(

#-25 Posted by drumdancerko (7 posts) -

Well the difference is just the size...and games played from memory card and not from MD. That is the main reason for launching psp go :) but I can say that psp 2000 or 3000 is better . my opinion

#-24 Posted by jrpg24 (34 posts) -
I would reccomend the PSP 3000, simply because there are new memory sticks now that can hold up to 8G and whatnot, so you can still have a lot of memory, and play UMD's, which is nice. It is better than the PSP Go in that sense, but that is just my opinion.
#-23 Posted by drumdancerko (7 posts) -

yes but for psp 2000 you can still use 8gb cards.. I have one ..but it have to by gamers memory card ... I recommend memory stick pro duo Mark II.

#-22 Posted by paladinqueen (509 posts) -

For quick reference (obviously don't trust a single person if you're looking for unbiased opinions, there's plenty of 3000 vs Go stuff online to read up on):

PSP 1000
-Bulkier design
-UMD drive
-only 32MB of memory
-standard mini USB cable for charging/transfers

PSP 2000
-Same as the 1000, plus
-Slim design
-64MB of memory (faster loads)
-mic jack
-video output

PSP 3000
-Same changes as the 2000, plus
-built-in mic
-brighter, faster screen with less ghosting (but occasionally noticeable scanlines)
-Sturdier disc tray

PSP Go
-Smaller screen (3.8" versus 4.3")
-Sliding design and rearranged button layout
-16GB of built in memory
-Memory card slot new proprietary format, not traditional MemoryStick
-proprietary 'all in one' port for USB transfers and video output
-save states possible
-supports bluetooth for using a controller
-No UMD drive

As the first two models are no longer in production the choice will fall to the 3000 (at least until the 4000 is properly announced) and the Go. While the choice is up to the individual, these are the main differences between the two:

Go
-smaller and more portable due to its size
-Has no UMD drive, rendering a previous PSP owner's catalogue useless and cutting off new users from a vast quantity of inexpensive physical PSP titles
-Not all UMD games are available on PSN - those that are usually cost more than their physical counterparts (and cannot be sold, obviously)
-new proprietary memory card format that's more expensive and more difficult to find than the old Memory Sticks.
-proprietary port for transfers and video, making replacement of lost cables more expensive
-expensive

3000
-does not support save states
-bigger in size
-noisy when accessing a UMD (then again, all UMD based PSPs are)
-includes no memory card when purchased outside of a bundle
-still uses Memory Sticks, which can be found for $40 for 16GB
-cheaper than the Go

Both PSPs use the same cross media bar interface, both let you download and store games from PSN, both play PS1 ****cs. The crux of the decision boils down to the size of the handheld, mainly, as the 3000 is capable of everything the Go is (other than save states and bluetooth support). Whether that smaller size and more elegant look but limited and expensive game catalogue is worth the extra money is up to you.

At this point, just get the most recent version before the PSP GO. That thing is a major PSP Fail. I have one, it's uncomfortable, you have to download everything, and the wifi sucks.
#-17 Posted by hockey73 (8200 posts) -

I have kind of a rant, but I don't feel it is appropriate to make a thread on it. Anyway, the biggest reason why getting the PSP GO feels like a rip off is in the price of the games on the store, in particular sports games. I noticed that Madden 2010 is still 39.99, same cost at Madden 11. Same goes for every other sports game on there, worse is the fact NBA 2k10 is 39.99 and NBA 2k11 is 29.99. I mean, update the prices. Offer half off for the previous years (19.99) or better yet make them 9.99. It makes no sense, I mean at the very least, just take them off the store, because it is absolutely ridiculous to see. I do realize occasionally fans will like the previous years version more, but for the majority of people, you're buying the next game for the roster update and maybe some minor fixes and upgrades. Those willing to have an old roster and a less updated version of the game, should pay less. The worst part is, you can buy the previous years versions, often times for under 10 bucks at gamestop or amazon. Something to consider when buying the GO, in general you're going to be paying more for games, and probably going to occasionally get ripped off (Sales on UMD games, and even on new games where they bundle something free, but only with the UMD version).

#-16 Posted by MrFishy05 (11 posts) -
You should get what you are most comfortable with. I suggest the white PSP and a PSP Go. The white PSP is the most common PSP to buy. I loved their commercials when they first produced it.
#-15 Posted by craftieman05 (349 posts) -

Is the audio playback any better on the Go compared to the regular PSP's?

#-14 Posted by MyOwnMuse (13 posts) -
When it comes to feature sets, the PSPgo and PSP 3000 are really very similar. A lot of people like the convenience of the PSPgo since you don't have to carry around discs. The Bluetooth and built in flash memory are a nice perk as well. In the interest of full disclosure, I work at a communications company affiliated with Sony, but I hope my advice is still of some use.
#-13 Posted by duskromano (18 posts) -

I have a psp 1000 and i got to say this i really love my phat psp. Even though its not slim and has a minimum storage of 32 mb i still love the fact that its durable..It doesnt have the nice features of PSP 2000 and 3000 but still of all the PSP I think PSP 1000 is the best.

I have NEVER owned a PSP or a PSPgo and since selling my Xbox 360 and purchasing a PS3, I am intrigued to by one of these systems due to my falling in love with the PS3. My questions are: Is the PSP "dead?" Am I too late to the party? Are there still new games being released worth the time and money? What is the main difference between the GO and "normal" PSP's besides no UMDs? Are the special bundle PSP's (Such as GOW and MGS) being released the 3000 in different colors or is there a difference? Are all PSP games available for purchase for the GO online? As in are all UMDs released purchasable through through the GO or are there limited games to choose from? And lastly, can Netflix work on either system seeing as how the GO is wifi? Thanks in advance for any answers or suggestions!

PSP isn't dead, no. You are late to the party, but not too late - there are a lot of great PSP games that have fallen in price over the years so you can quickly and inexpensively build up a decent little library.

There aren't really any new games being released that are worth your attention, though.

The Go lets you use a Dual Shock 3 if you want, supports bluetooth headphones, and has 16GB of memory built-in.

Bundled PSPs are just a different colour, there's no other physical difference between them. Rumour has it that some of the coloured PSPs are not as sturdy as the black ones, but that might just be a rumour (the Hannah Montana lilac one garnered the most attention for build quality).

Not all UMD games are available for purchase on PSN for the Go. Out of my small library, Pangya and Crisis Core are not available for purchase, which is a shame are both are great games.

Don't know about Netflix, but I have a feeling the answer is no.

Hey everyone! I've been a DS fan since it first came out, but am looking at ditching it for the PSP. I just finished reading this thread and have decided on the PSP 3000. One question though... Can I download games from the PSN and play them on my PSP 3000? Or is that feature only on the Go model? I REALLY like the save state feature on the Go, but the 3000 seems to be much better overall. (I also had a chance to play around with a Go at Best Buy and didn't like how flimsy, small, and cramped it felt)

Thanks for clearing that up. Most "PSP3000 vs PSP Go" articles I've read made it seem that only the Go could download games. Can't wait to finally jump on the PSP wagon lol. :D
#-5 Posted by MacSexy (143 posts) -

Personally, while I have both the 3000 and the Go (currently), they both represent different parts of how I use the systems. I used to be an art major, so bear with my reasoning on these things...and while I have gotten the chance to work with all the systems as a gamer...my favorites are the 3000 and the Go for below reasons coupled with lightweight design and SUPAMEGAOHMYGOD color contrast.

The PSP-3000, "The Game Machine":

This is where I've made a good deal of my purchases, but with how fragile UMDs are...I don't plan on carrying my extra games with me these days.

  • VERY BAD-If I bring Dissidia, I'm just stuck playing Dissidia, because I'm afraid of destroying my physical copy in the process of transporting it with other games.

I can purchase the games for full price, but I have the option of buying the game used, if it's really that much of a problem.

  • VERY GOOD-A simple way to give the finger to a game publisher for ruining a franchise game and still getting the game...for less even.
  • VERY BAD-The game can be completely and totally thrashed if you don't luck out. (To every used game, there is a story to how it got there.)

It has upgradable memory.

  • VERY BAD-But...it isn't cheap...40 bucks went into getting only HALF of what memory space the Go has internally. In the long run, it's certainly cheaper, but it takes a lot of money to get a decent system together...and when you're scrounging up money to get games for cheap, that mountain seems even harder to get over...and often times leads to people modding their systems.
  • EXTREMELY BAD-Unlike the PSP Go, there is NO INITIAL INTERNAL MEMORY. Storage has to be bought separately.

A good thing to note about the 1000, 2000, and 3000 series is that they can sport a camera if you buy the add-on.

  • GOOD-This opens up a lot more features for the PSP, such as Skype with a camera, finally able to use the 'Camera' function on the XMB.
  • BAD-Again, money is an issue, and while the camera's price may have dropped significantly since being allowed into America after several years, it still costs money.


The PSP Go, "The Media Machine":

This is where I put the focus on holding my movies, pictures, and music...since after all, the original want I had for the PSP was to get a nice display screen for the images I would be using for art references without carrying an entire folder of printed out images (compact art references are a must if you are an artist, since your supplies are bulky if you are not a digital artist), and the Go lives up to it rather well if it does nothing else.

This game system also means one thing in particular for me in purchasing games: MULTIPLAYER.

  • VERY GOOD-I only need to buy the game once to have multiple copies of it so my friends and I can go head to head or co-op (on my systems) in whatever I've bought and/or downloaded previously. (If I am smart and use one account for all my systems, I get everything working perfectly, as long as I change my racing tags and the like.)
  • BAD-I'm relegated to the library of the PlayStation Network Store. Gone are the use of my UMDs.
  • NOT AS BAD-I have to pay the full price of the PSN store (which drops based on specials and age of the game).

Games are all digital.

  • GOOD-This means that I can carry around as many games as I can fit onto the system (granted if I spend the money to purchase them).
  • GOOD-With the right add-ons for a PS3, you can take PSX save data and add it to the internal memory of a PSP, so your old save data can live on years after the original copy is destroyed.
  • BAD-UMDs cannot be converted.

Interal Storage Not Sold Separately.

  • VERY GOOD-I start off with roughly 16 GB of free space to customize my PSP.
  • GOOD-If that's not enough I can buy more memory.
  • BAD-The new additional memory is not the same format as the previous series.

It also allows me to have a system I can loan out to my most trusted friends if they've missed out on PSX game titles that I wouldn't dare loan out the original in this day and age.

  • VERY BAD-...While this feature is admirable from Sony, it doesn't apply to all games though, considering the library...which has games I've never heard of, have no intention of playing, ...or worse yet 'downgraded' games like Final Fantasy: Tactics for PSX being on the PSN market, and not Final Fantasy :Tactices: War of the Lions (the PSP remake), which has a lot more content in it as well as redone cinematics...
  • GOOD-Since this isn't a good trade off for PSP owners, it makes it all the sweeter for the PS3 owners because they get something, but it's not as sweet since it's not what the game COULD be. :/
  • EXTREMELY GOOD-It also takes away a good chunk of game hunting...leaving buying the original games up to the hardcore fans. Cutting prices for the consumer and cutting out the morons destroying priceless gaming history in one move...Groovy.

Since I have/love both machines, the argument plays like this;

Do I want to support game publishers so they can keep making good games while getting multiple copies of the same game for no extra charge (in case the memory stick fries, I buy off a friend or family member's old PSP, or even yet, I'm buying a game for the kids [that exist only in this theoretical statement])

...OR...

Am I going to be a bargain gamer who trades game disc safety for availability, variety, and price while keeping in mind that game publishers don't get a cent of the used games I buy (which could lead to an even smaller online library in the future due to no funding for future games or companies even folding up from lost profits)?

just a point i want to make about the PSP Go and Bluetooth. its not limited to PS3 controllers (though that is a great feature), but unlike any other model can also hook up wireless headphones, and even teather to your cell phone for constant, portable internet acsess!darkspineslayer
So if I just connect my Palm Pre to it via Blutooth, then thell hare internet, just like that?

It looked a lot smaller than the regular PSP3000. And I like the UMD. I can go on Ebay and pick up used games for cheap. With PSP Go downloads only relies a lot more on the PS Store and a web connection. Kinda felt like that was a step back on Sony's part.

So if I just connect my Palm Pre to it via Blutooth, then thell hare internet, just like that?

The Palm Pre normally does not support sharing internet via Bluetooth. For some reason, I think some Eur models do though...
