    I still think that Sonys target market for this is all wrong... they want older buyers... people who are unlikely to whip out a psp on the tube, they are more likely to be using an iphone or something similar. the blog about sony losing the plot a bit was spot on :(

    Actually, the conversion is very easy - you take the dollar amount and change the dollar sign to either a pound or euro sign, whichever will lead to the biggest screwing for the customer.

    The good: UMD is now deader than Jacqui Smith's political career.
    The bad: Price, the fact that Sony appear to have totally lost the plot.

    Still considering an iPod Touch for on-the-move gaming/tunes and there's nothing about the PSP Go that makes me want to change my mind.

    It's over priced. Sony had a chance to cap their showing of the PSP support with the debut of the redesign and similar pricing point (like Nintendo with the DSi) to make the transition easier. $250 is hard to choke down when the current PSP still for $170, not to mention they going pure digital distribution from now which strains current PSP owners who didn't buy 8GB or 16GB memory cards.

    They're still delusional, seriously, if you're going do a redux of an old product, at least make it:

    1. Smaller
    2. Take out a useless feature.(in their case they did)
    3. Keep a consistent price.

    They've taken out one useless thing, and added a few more.

    I like UMD - it allows me to go into a Game store and buy nearly new games for a Tenner, rather than £20-£30 on the PSN store - and when I'm bored of them I can sell them on again. Looks like those days are over!
