Review Summary

This is the summary of consumer reviews for Sony PSPgo. The BoolPool rating for this product is Good, with 3.60 stars, and the price range is $179.00-$199.99.

Sony PSP Go is a highly portable and sleek hand held gaming device. It is all digital and does not support UMD. It has built-in WIFI and Bluetooth. It comes with 16GB memory with an option to add 16GB more externally. The screen is small and vibrant. It boasts an ergonomic design. The games are fast and easy to download and players do not have to carry UMDs with them to play games. All the games fit on the device.

Reviewers say that it is expensive for what it offers and it is good for first time buyers of handheld gaming device. Buyers call it waste of money for its lack of features like dual analog, backward peripheral compatibility and touchscreen keyboard.

Overall, Sony PSPgo does not fare well in players and gamers community. It is just little bit smaller and have let go of UMDs for a higher price.
