    Not as great as it seems Will not connect to WPA2

    My husband and I had both PSP systems in our hands and decided to go with this one because of the 3 free games promo. We are still waiting on the game codes to be emailed after 16 days. There is fine print inside of the outside packaging that wraps around the box that says it should take up to 7 days. I called Sony and was told that the wait is actually up to 21 BUSINESS days. It will not connect to WPA2 wireless internet. The saving grace here is that my apartment has its own wifi connection so we connect through that. It takes forever to set up the PSP Go if you are not familiar with navigating the PSP virtual keyboard which I found was oddly set up. Once you get that down though, it is faster. Out of the box, I had to also upgrade the system's software. Do not even attempt to set up the system unless you have lots of battery. If you don't you will have to "wait until battery is charged enough to perform update" according to the system message. It does look cool. I like that there is no need to carry around UMDs but the memory is only big enough for about 3-5 full games maybe more depending on the size of the game. Then after that, you will need a memory stick (something else to buy). Speaking of games, you will need to wait an eternity (depending on how many people are on the Playstation servers, I presume) to download a game. One game said that it would take 4 hours to download when I tried to download at 11pm on Sunday. I woke up the next morning and it only projected little under an hour. It did take every bit of that time too. If I had to do it all over again, I would just get the PSP 3000. We are contemplating on whether to cut our losses and return it tomorrow. The only thing holding us back is that, while waiting for the free game codes, we spent $20 on games that we may not be able to transfer to the 3000 model. We will see.

    Pros:The PSP go is a lot slimmer design,sleeker has 16GB of storage:Bluetooth connection:can access multiple downloaded games without needing to keep bulky UMD's:Fits right into your pockets:Good integration with PS3. Cons:Too pricey,despite the lack of the touch screen analog stick: awkward place of analog stick,volume,and display of controls :Smaller screen but still has the same resolution: can't play UMD games or use your old PSP accessories: battery not user-replaceable:slow download times for larger games: uses obscure and expensive Memory Stick M2 format for memory expansion. Overall; I would say the PSP GO is a more expensive model that the 3000,don't get this upgrade even if it's your first purchase of a PSP. I say stick or buy a PSP 3000 instead of getting this latest model.

    I wouldn't Recommend the PSP GO. If its your 1st PSP maybe. The price is an issue. You can get a PS3 for $50 bucks more. For what Sony is asking for in price, i would have expected ALOT more than what the PSP GO is offering. If this was $200 i would recommend this PSP. . Downloading is slow, you cant play your old UMD's on it. Controls are little awkward during game play. If you don't like the game you bought, you CAN'T sell it again, like you would be able to do on the old PSP's. I highly recommend people to wait for Sony improve the PSP GO more to make the price actually worth it. Get the old PSP, its worth the place.
