T3.com Go Hands-on With PSPgo

I was going to post this a few days ago but the video was taken down off YouTube for a while to have the audio fixed. It is back up now so I can share it with you.

We all make mistakes, we are only human after all – it has now been a whole five days since my last one on TSA that I am aware of.  That does not mean we cannot have a little bit of fun at someone else’s expense though.  I found the following video of T3.com’s Rhi Morgan going hands-on with the PSPgo so funny I just had to share.

Did you spot them?

This is the new PlayStation Go.

No it’s not.

It’s got a 3.8 inch screen as you’d have on the other PSPs.

Erm, no, as they have all got 4.3″ screens.

PSP games usually take up 1.8GBs of space so the 16GB you’ve got isn’t going to last you a heck of a long time.

No, that is the storage limit for a UMD disc.  PSP games average 700MB in size.

Thankfully though Sony have put in a Memory Stick Duo port for you to expand that memory for all your delicious games.

Sorry, Rhi, the PSPgo takes Memory Stick Micros not Memory Stick Duos like the other PSPs.

It’s also go a faster processor than the 3000 racing along at 480MHz.

The only thing racing along at 480MHz in the PSPgo is the driver chip for the USB 2.0 interface.

The UMD port has gone in favour of downloadable content…  If you happen to have UMDs and you’re planning to buy a PSPgo don’t let that put you off.  Just let Sony know the games you have and they’ll transfer them digitally for you.

Really?  Are Sony that trusting?  Maybe it will be as simple as emailing Sony with a list of PSP games you want have got and then they will email back the download codes for them but I suspect there will be proof of ownership required somewhere along the line.  Not really a mistake like the other points, just amusing.

I also find it funny that the cutting edge game they played on Sony’s latest handheld was the PS1’s Destruction Derby.  You even get to see the PS1’s old boot screen as she starts the game.  Now I have nothing against Destruction Derby, I have spent many happy hours playing it, but you would think that if you were going to “snatch” a PSPgo from Sony to have a quick hands-on with it that you would get Sony to at least let you have a PSP game to play on it.

Did I miss anything?

Thanks, superjag86.
