Sony unveils smaller, lighter PSP Go

Worst kept secret is out

Sony has taken the wraps of the PlayStation Portable Go (PSP Go), its latest handheld console, or the 'Worst Kept Secret', as the company nicknamed it at the E3 games exhibition.

As Sony describes it, the PSP Go is specifically designed for a digital lifestyle, meant for those consumers who wish to live completely digitally. Like earlier reports, the PSP Go will not incorporate UMD's, opting for downloadable content for everything. The product will be released in the autumn, with the US price listed as $250 (£150).

Along with being smaller, lighter, having 16GB of internal flash memory, built in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, the PSP Go will incorporate Media Go, which will replace media manager in helping users consume all forms of media on the PSP including games, video and music. PlayStation's video delivery service will also be available for the PSP Go, allowing users to have what Sony calls 'Entertainment everywhere'.

Sony said the PSP Go does not replace the PSP 3000, but will work as another option for those who prefer a more digital lifestyle. They are still going to produce UMD's and release every game as either downloadable or in UMD form.
