Nintendo: PSP Go Is Fundamentally Flawed In Concept


Reggie Fils-Aime, President and Chief Operating Officer of Nintendo of America, has blasted Sony’s recently released PSP Go stating the console itself is fundamentally flawed in concept.

The PSP Go may have a fundamental concept problem in terms of ‘Who’s it for?’ and ‘What’s the benefit?’ I have the utmost respect for all our competitors, but it’s interesting to try and answer the consumer question of ‘What’s in it for me?’ in that product.

  1. I agree with Nintendo.
    The PSP Go may look different…and looks really awkward to me but what does it have in stored?

    It looks awkward because of the buttons…do you really have to slide it down to get the buttons?
    Seems like the top screen will be a bit heavy and you must force enough weight to get it leveled…
    Is it a wannabe cellphone?

    Now that I look at it, I agree with Nintendo. I prefer to buy the original PSP over this.

    1. Lol! Man, if you were agree with nintendo you would buy a nintendo dsi… (you’re actually agree just with Reggie

  2. The only major benefit I can think of is not having to carry your games, and I would only get this instead of the PSP if there was a discount for downloading instead of buying the disks.

  3. I agree. I wont buy it. Say for instance I’m on a trip no internet and there happens to be a store I stop in and see a game I’d want on UMD, but I cant due to having to download it insted due to no drive. PSP 3000 is better cause of that I say.

    1. Errors! I meant to say was that I’d go in a store saw a game I’d want but cant get due to having no UMD drive. I’d have to go find a free hotspot just to buy a game which sucks. I prefer to have my stuff on a disc anyways.

    1. They already have a PSP 3000. I do agree with Reggie even though I like PSP but I already have a PSP. I wouldn’t buy another one unless it had 2 analog sticks, L2 and R2 with vibration. Also I see download only to be a big slap in the face to people who don’t have internet and for old school gamers like me who want to own the physical copy to there games.

      So in lamest terms PSP go is a downgrade from the original I say PSP no.

  4. yeah this sucks because all those umd games you bought you cant play on here u have to have a psp 2000 and a go a go has nothing good in store sorry sony

  5. I agree! Wow I love Reggie, he’s such a smart business man. The psp go looks confusing that my bro decided not to play becuase it’s not simple setting up when he was gonna purchase it. Doesn’t seem like it’s good for young kids and elderly becuase it may be hard for them to operate it (as in setting it up downloading and such).

  6. Sony is making crap I don’t want, and Nintendo’s DSi isn’t something very “new” either. But at least Nintendo promised that their next home console will come to par with modern graphics.

  7. I have a PSP 2000 and it’s just fine I can play UMD games or d/load them while the more expensive psp go only allows the latter hardly an incentive.
    iPhone only works as a d/load only platform because it’s primarily an iPod/phone but the psp is mainly a games platform and needs physical storage. Also Sony complain about low UMD sales with the go they will only drop more.
