The discounted PSP Go has appeared at Amazon, Game, Gamestation, Play and HMV. However, other online retailers, such as Zavvi and Tesco.com, have failed to follow suit and are still selling the handheld at its RRP.

The handheld's launch on October 1 was rather low-key, with none of the stock shortages, overnight camping, or armed robbery that marked the PlayStation 3 launch.

Sony recently announced that there would be no way for existing PSP owners with a back catalogue of UMD titles to transfer them over to the download-only PSP Go. However, gamers will be able to download a free copy of Gran Turismo PSP, as well as redeem a further three games if they own any UMD, via the PSP Go rewards scheme.

There are currently 225 games available to download for the PSP Go on the PlayStation Network, as well 13,300 TV episodes and 2,300 movies.
