Get Rock Back Unplugged Lite For A Limited Time With PSPgo

Sony's upcoming PSPgo has been getting a mixed reaction from the enthusiast-gamer community. Some love its internal storage, pocketable form factor, and emphasis on downloadable games. Others hate its price and the fact that it doesn't use UMD discs According to Sony's director of PlayStation operations and strategic planning Eric Lempel, gamers were asking for the a device like the PSPgo. He recently told Destructoid:

"We always listen to what our users say, and we've gone out into the field, and there are a lot of users ready for the digital age. They've basically said 'I want a unit I can carry around all of my content, but I don't want to carry around a whole bunch of  objects. I want to download them all, put them on my unit, and take it with me.' The PSPgo is the answer to that. From the PlayStation Network perspective, it's really exciting. It's a Network only device, it's a small glimpse into some future devices, and at the same time, we'll still have the PSP-3000 for the consumer that wants some tangible media. They can also use the 3000 to download the Network if they choose to do so."

The PSPgo launches next week and it will be interesting to see how well (or not) it sells. $250 is a lot of money for a handheld system, especially when you consider that a PS3 costs $50 more.

Anyone out there interested in the PSPgo? Why or why not?
