Yeah, I sold my GBA - I bought it full of ideas about wasted time on buses I could play it, and in fact used it about twice. Kept the PSP, though - it does more than play games. God the Go's ugly, though - what's wrong with a normal PSP?

Don't buy the PSP Go. If you must get a PSP, get the regular PSP-3000. There is no reason to get the PSP Go whatsoever - it has a smaller screen, it has a less comfortable design, and no disc drive means any games that you previously had are totally useless. On top of that, the base cost is more expensive, and the regular PSP can do all the same PSN stuff the PSP Go can, including downloading retail games. You also have to buy totally new peripherals for it, since Sony decided to make sure nothing old would be compatible with it (apparently a way of consoling retailers, who didn't want to stock the device due to all the games being digital).

Bought a DS Lite for myself when they first came out. Played it for about 5 hours. It has kept my girlfriend entertained ever since, so i can't complain really.

No. Just get FFVII on a normal PSP. It's not PSPGo exclusive, it can be downloaded and played fine on the PSP 1000/2000/3000 models. And they are cheaper, and more comfortable to use (for me at least).

Everyone says no, you know the answer is no, but I have a feeling you'll get one anyway? Is this more like one of those convince me not to get one posts that's hidden as a "should I get one?".

No. There are plenty of other ways of playing FF7 anyway, and at the end of the day, if you really want a portable, a PSP3000 is a much better way to go about it. For the love of God, do not support the PSP Go!

No. Hunt for the original PSP and if possible the japanese version. The original is better mate and more robust. The japanese version of th original also has a much better screen

As others have said, get the normal PSP-3000 instead. It does everything the PSP Go does and more and cheaper.

just to be different, buy a PS1 with the screen attachment and a battery pack for it.
Anything's better than the psp go :P

Just save you money and imagine playing FF7 in your head.

Remember the golden rule about playing older games, they rarely live up to the memory of playing them the first time round!

no

how about iPhone 3GS: one device to replace them all. jailbreak it and put PSX on there for your favourite games.
