As Scott Pilgrim and yours truly are probably the only two individuals on Earth who actually own a PSP Go, Sony has officially cancelled production and shipment of the all-digital handheld. Sony’s online stores have stopped listing the device since a few days ago and an alleged Sony employee confirmed the cancellation. Only the currently shipped units will be available.
Despite its poor sales performance and lack of parity with the UMD-using PSPs, I have to say the PSP Go was a great machine. Smaller and lighter than an iPhone, with the broad media functionality of a PlayStation product, the Go is the ideal MP3 player, video player, and game console in one. Probably the most portable gaming handheld ever, it’s also a lot more comfortable for folks with big hands like myself. R.I.P., PSP Go; hopefully the NGP will get something like you.
