Price cuts are pretty mundane in the gadget world, but a price jump? Strange - especially since Sony took the PSPGo down to $US150 only a week ago. Looks like they changed their minds, for whatever reason. Bummer.
Whoa. Engadget's reporting that Sony Ericsson, who haven't been quickest on the draw with Android devices, are in the "late stages of planning" for an Android 3.0 phone with sliding gaming controls and an accompanying gaming platform.
After being derided since, oh, 2004, the UMD is set to return to the PSPgo, albeit thanks to the peripheral guys Logitech.
Mark said that the PSPgo goes nowhere you haven't been. He wasn't impressed to say the least. Perhaps the fact that it has been hacked and someone added a Sega Genesis emulator will make him change his mind.
That's the question Sony posed in one of their infamous, leak-laden surveys on the device, according to Destructoid.
I've got so much to play with this weekend it's not funny. There's a PSPGo with Gran Turismo, Scribblenauts on the DS, Rock Band Beatles on 360, plus a Wacom Bamboo tablet, an Intel rocket, and I'm going to install Windows 7 on my Macbook Pro testing out Sun Virtualbox that so many of you recommended.
The PSPgo hit stores yesterday, and it's about to get firmware that lets it jump online via a Bluetooth device like a mobile phone or laptop. Sony's update also gives all PSPs support for "SenseMe" automatic music categorisation. Watch the demo.
For this week's Photoshop Contest, I asked you to invent some completely unportable portable gaming devices in honour of the PSPgo. As usual, your minds are more demented than I'd even imagined.
In case you missed it in our PSPgo review, iFixit performed one of their notorious teardowns on the handheld. The biggest news is that the Go's battery is tucked under a warranty-voiding sticker. Other tidbits.
A few months back, Sony's John Koller broke to us that PSP owners who wanted a PSPGo would be able to digitally acquire those games for the PSPGo's built-in storage. Now Sony has reneged on that offer. Sort of.
