Sony has confirmed the end of their PSPgo portable entertainment system. After having launched on October 1st, 2009 in Europe and North America, and November 1st 2009 in Japan, the console never launched with a vast degree of success. The PSPgo offered a unique selling point as a portable device: all games were stored internally on 16GB of flash memory, meaning Sony's UMD discs were not needed to play games.
Support for the PSP-3000 will likely continue until the release of the 'NGP' (Next Generation Portable), as Sony has marketed it. The NGP appeared at the 'Playstation Meeting' on January 27th, 2011, and is intended to release in Q4 2011. Images of a new PSP motherboard released in 2010 left people speculating that Sony may be intending to revise the PSPgo. This possibility has since been ruled out by the halted production of the handheld.
It's about time this happened. Sony should had never made a model purely composed of data as its medium for game play. I'd like to met the people who came up with this brilliant idea and smirk at them. I'd show them how i play with my NORMAL PSP and show them the number of games I DO own.
