I couldn't agree more with you, tomblifter. The controls part is what also disturbs me the most about design. Because of the design, the controls are at the very bottom of the device, but you can't hold the device by the bottom part (thumbs upwards), because the center of mass is where two slides meet, so this means you have to hold the device from it's sides, thumbs pointing inward. That's not a pretty comfortable position at all, not to mention making it hard to hit buttons properly... I'm not even going to talk about the smaller screen... The old design was better in comparison. I don't even like the looks of the new design, though I generally don't like slideable controls (mostly the same reasons as above). UMD support being dropped is also a big bummer. What is going to happen to the games that have been released to UMD so far? All of them going to be included in the store? If not, then that's really bad. Also, what about newer games? Will both UMD and PSN version appear to satisfy all customers? In the end, I see the PSP Go as nothing more than Sony's desperate attempt to stop piracy on it's platform (unlike it's brothers, it has quite a different architecture and can't be modded or firmware downgraded at the moment). It brings nothing new or exciting to me. It just seems like Sony is trying to trick me into buying it so they can plug their piracy hole (or at least make it smaller), but offers nothing in return.
