    I am Halfway there to having enough money for a New PSP GO.

    Just Wondering, despite the three games that come with it,(till 5/11). Are there any other games that I might want to consider.

    Ratchet and Clank,Little big planet,and Socom. come with the PSP Go

    All for $200.00 plus tax

    I'm aware a PSP2 and PSphone are arriving next year but I've been window shopping for a new PSP since the 2k and my 1k is showing it's age...

    In before the hatin' starts.

    I love my go. It's nice keeping all the games with me. the new God of War, Valkyria Chronicles, and the new Ys are really good newer games.

    I dunno despite how light the go is because it lacks a disk drive. It would be best to just get a new 2k psp since you have games already plus they're cheaper so you can spend money on more games or other things.

    I've had the honor of playing with all the PSP's and the 1k,3k,and N1k are the only one's I'd consider.

    I own a 1k. the 2k feels cheaper than the others.

    Just so you know, that if you get a PSPgo, there will be games that you will not be able to ever play on it.

    If you're getting a PSP get a 3000 model do NOT get a Go.

    Actually, I do agree with this. I like the go, because it's very portable and because of some other perks, like using a PS3 controller on it, but in retrospecta PSP3k does seem to be the sweet spot. For example, the only reason I can play the new Kingdom Hearts is because I still have my 2K, otherwise, I'd be screwed.

    woops I meant 3k earlier but yeah what others have said, if you get the GO you will be limiting yourself from some games, aswell as having to pay bigger prices for digital copies of games.

    As a Gameboy Micro owner I can fully testify that sometimes buying the system no one else wants you to buy can be the right choice when you know what you want. That being said, I've never used the Go so I can't say what to buy for it, but just get what you want.

    but what gives me hope is this

    The PSP2 won't have Umd support so I'm pretty sure Sony will want to fully support that by adding more games to the roster and hopefully The Disney Final Fantasy(Birth by Sleep) will be among them.

    So I'm getting a Psp Go withing the year and I'm looking forward to it.

    The nice part about the go is you don't have to drag 20 or 30 disks on trips. With a memory card and system storage, you can have a large selection of games that fits in your pocket. Also one of the reasons I like my iphone.

    True, but the regular psp just isn't as portable. And I have the original, don't need another one that is basically the same. And the go has more storage space.

    Plus after 3 and a half years of window shopping I'm sick of waiting.

    Just wait, man. Seriously, if you can wait this long then another few months wont kill you and you'll have cutting edge hardware rather than something out of date.

    I have to agree with Twist.
    Sure you can go out and get the PSPGo now but when the PSP 2 hits you could be wanting that and have to wait longer.

    Think of the extra time waiting as money in the bank for games.
