PSXE Poll Update: PSP Go Fails To Generate Much Interest

The PSP Go just launched last week but the high price tag and a lack of a UMD-to-digital conversion program has kept people away. We don't have any sales estimates just yet but we're hoping Sony fares better during the holiday season, anyway.

As for right now, the PSXE readers really don't have much of an interest in the new unit; only some of you might consider a purchase if the price drops, but most of you just aren't thinking about it at all. For the record, Wedbush Morgan Securities analyst Michael Pachter has predicted that Sony will indeed cut the price of the PSP Go down to $199 just in time for the shopping blitz in a month or so. It might be a good idea, despite the fact that Sony has prepared over 16,000 pieces of downloadable content and 225 full downloadable titles for the PSP Go; the PSP-3000 is still the choice for many, and $250 can be steep for others. For our part, the PSP go registers as a great achievement but one that will need some time to catch on, which shouldn't surprise anyone; such was the way for the first iteration of the handheld in question. Traditionally, if you give Sony time, they will emerge victorious...

As for this week, we figure we address the hot topic: Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. We know you're all anxiously awaiting our review and to make things more interesting, we thought we'd pick your brains...what do you think our final overall score will be? The way everyone's going on about this game, you might think we'll give it the coveted perfect 10, although only one other title this generation - Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots - received that honor. Or maybe you have this sneaking suspicion that we're not as enamored as everyone else, and we're gonna give it a score that freaks everyone out. Who knows? Do you know? Take a shot.

"Traditionally, if you give Sony time, they will emerge victorious..."

^^^ Traditionally? Are you kidding? Sony always emerged on top (or near it) since they decided to dive into the videogame business.

This tradition you talk about was nowhere to be found before 2006. Before that, they were the undisputed kings for two whole generations.

Presently, they have yet to cement this new "tradition" of coming from behind.

This current console war can be compared to a race. And Sony has been lagging behind the competition with the PS3 in said race. The fact that it managed to achieved better times in a couple of laps, doesn't mean that it has won it yet. Because it still lags behind in the overall race. It's not like you can ignore the advantage that the competition has of being in the lead for several laps. In order to win that race, Sony needs first to maintain those good times for the rest of it's life cycle in order to consolidate a lead. And/orn hope the other competitors drops off from the race or suffer a major setback.

In regards to the PSPGo, I think it might have a future whenever Sony decides to put back in everything that made the previous versions so appealing to consumers and especially gamers.
