    psp How would you change Sony's PSP Go?



    Sony's PSP Go hasn't had the warmest reception of all time or anything, but does it really deserve all the negative vibes being flung its way? The UMD-less console leaked way earlier than Sony intended, but after a proper launch and you inevitably trekking out to snag one, we're curious to know whether or not you're enjoying things. Would you have kept UMD support? Would you have added more internal memory? Enlarged the screen? Offered it in neon yellow? Be sure to spill your thoughts in comments below, and you'll get a few bonus points if you're coming from the world of an original PSP. Promise!

    Lets see... Normally I should add a UMD driver and second analog stick.

    If I cann't change the Hardware of the Program I would offer the ability to rip your existing umd game into the Go, one way or the other. That was the original plan for it anyway...

    I would make it a brand new console, like a PSP2. That way, it could possibly get away with a high price tag as well as digital download. All it seems to be at the moment is just another shell for the PSP with limitations.

    If it was a new handheld, then I'd bring a lot more features from the "Big Consoles" and shrink it down for a handheld. For example, Online Multiplayer would be a great feature to add, especially if it was designed for a lot of games. Also maybe bringing back some old features like Local Co-Op, I mean, who remembers the good old days of the Gameboy Link cable. But using Wireless technology instead.

    I'd also look for indie development support by supplying developers with a free downloadable SDK, which they are able to create games for free as long as they distribute for free.

    Anyone caught pirating games or making illegal homebrew will be first warned but if it continues then they will be banded from all internet access from their handheld.

    I'd also make sure that hardware is easily replaceable since then there would be a "DIY" approach to repairing. Battery wearing out? Just buy a new one. Simple.


    Just a few ideas thrown in there.

    Completly re-design it, ad second nub, better d-pad etc.

    Make the price much more realistic for what it is. lol

    I would just add a way to transfer games that you own to it and go back to a standard USB connection.

    I would do the following:


    Add a touch screen, therefore justifying the current design

    Add higher RAM and CPU speeds, so it can outshine the IPhone in performance or match it

    Add third party support for free apps and stuff downloadable through the Playstation Store. Leads to features galore.

    Masnufacture a keyboard attachment for the GO, thereby allowing people to use it as a PDA.

    Since the PSP 1000 and 2000 are easily fixed, add the ability to replace parts with a DIY approach, no more scratched faceplates or damaged controls, just swap a new one in there.

    And above all, even if it adds a few millimetres of bulk, keep the UMD support, not everybody wants to download games from an online store due to internet security (or lack thereof).

    Give it to Microsoft and they'll do a better job.

    Hey it's true though, Sony makes good hardware and i'd always prefer to keep their products in the long term, but compared to the competition they do a piss poor job of running a gaming platform since Psp and Ps3, if they stop telling us what we want and compromise a bit with what we want they'd make more money and gamers would be happier.
