Well all the rumours were spot on and someone at Sony's gonna get skinned alive for the leak but we all knew it was coming. A 16gb, umd driveless, sliding screen, entirely digital device... Looks sexy as with most of Sonys devices...
It's clear to me that Sony have taken huge notice of the App store on the iPhone and are pushing for a slice of that market. The announcement has clearly reinvigorated interest amongst developers (Metal gear, Gran turismo, LBP, Motorstorm, Rock Band, new GOW) which is good for everyone. It's a safe bet to see much more PSone classics hitting at a more regular basis (Resi evils/metal gera solid confirmed)...bout f**kin' time! Rumours of a subscription based service (£10 a month, rent/download X number of games) are very interesting too.
Only concerns are the price (surely being UMD-less and entirely digital based the games will be far cheaper and hopefully the console itself won't cost an arm and a leg too...) and the storage size (16gb, about what 9-10 normal PSP games... why not have 16gb and 32gb models...at least it supports micro memory sticks)
It's classic Sony however and I don't think anyone will be surprised if the PSPgo works it way onto everyone Xmas letters to santa. Think i'll be picking one up day one (Trading in my old PSP slim n light of course)
