Hope you all had a great new year? :) I flew to Scotland, had a good climb, an generally faffed about.
Before I left, I treated myself to a little retail therapy, an purchased the 'PSP GO'!! It's a brilliant little unit, a lot smaller and lighter than its big brother.
I've read 'so' many reviews and comparisons regarding the GO, its had a fair bit of stick. 'The price' being its greatest flaw. I payed 200 ''big ol british pounds'', which is the current retail, it did feel like I was being lightly mugged as I handed over my card.
The second popular critiscism is the lack of UMD support! Its not something I was looking for, so I don't share the bitterness that previous PSP owners may feel.

I specifically wanted the GO for its digital content, although intitially I was nervous about having to pay full retail price everytime I wanted to purchase a game, as second hand markets won't exist in the download world.
But this is a product which you have to buy with all these details in mind. It appears as though Sony are targeting the young professionals or mature students who would of previously adopted the DS.
At present, a lot of the games available to GO users on the PSP Store, are largely Puzzle and the new Range of Mini games. Which is brilliant for any post DS users, who will find the range similiar in appearance.
There is also a growing selection of all the Playstations big names, GT, LittleBigPlanet and GodOfWar.
But aside from this, my biggest use for my GO, is the Video content. It has a fantastic picture and beautiful resolution for such a small handheld.
Without any earphones, the sound quality is very quiet at best. But given that its designed to be taken on your travels, it would often be prudent to plug in earphones anyway.
And as you would expect from Sony, the audio quality is chuffing ace :)
The GO has a standard 16g, which is enough to hold roughly 15 games and movies, but if your like me and want a larger supply, its worth investing in another 16g card that can be inserted in the side, giving you a 32gig 'p diddy dooby'!!
Sadly they've switched to M2 cards, which are only available at biggest in a 16g option.
I'm free to do ''nothing'' today !! so I'm gonna have a bash on 'Little Big Planet'
Have a good weekend. F.Jeff
