PSP Go! Prematurely Unveiled In Qore?
With every new day that passes, it appears we're inching ever closer to an apparently inevitable PSP Go! announcement...
Many sources have all but confirmed this new iteration of Sony's handheld although Sony hasn't made anything official. All we've seen are mock-ups like this one pictured here, and several solid theories concerning the features and design of the PSP Go! But now, it may have been prematurely unveiled: the direct link to Gaming Console Network is down, but you can find the story in question at N4G. GCN claims to have seen the PSP Go! in the upcoming June 2009 Qore episode. They won't explain how - this whole, "gee, somehow I got access" explanation is cause for suspicion - but the pictures are in abundance and as you can see, it reflects much of the speculation that has been circulating lately. If it's true, Qore reveals that this new unit will not replace the PSP-3000 (they will be sold alongside one another), it will boast a 16 Gig memory and a memory slot for more if you wish, and it's set to release in Fall 2009. All of this also gels with semi-reliable information we've seen over the past few weeks, but of course, until the press release sits before our greedy eyes, none of this is verified.
But if it's the real deal, what do you think? Is this something that might interest you? And for what reason might a consumer wish to have both the PSP-3000 and the PSP Go!...? We should find out soon enough.
