PSP Go Includes "Save State" Feature
One of the downsides to the technology age is the shrinking attention spans of those who are always "plugged in." But Sony is aware of this, and have added a neat little feature to the PSP Go to help people cope.
According to Joystiq, this option was freshly unveiled during the GameSpot UK unboxing of Sony's sleek new portable: the system allows players to save their progress "and perform other functions on the device." When you return to the game, you will begin from the exact spot you left, which means we may as well call this the "Save State" feature. They note that in the presentation, GameSpot's Guy Cocker saves his progress in MotorStorm: Arctic Edge so he can - ironically enough - watch a new trailer of the very same game. Then, he went back and continued playing. For many players, and considering the enhanced functionality of the PSP Go, this could prove to be a very useful addition. Say you're playing a game and you suddenly think to yourself, "hey, I wonder if there's any additional content for this." Well, just pause and save, and hop over to the PlayStation Store to see what's up. The possibilities are almost endless, aren't they?
The PSP Go is scheduled to launch on October 1 and this all-digital handheld will undoubtedly be high on the radar for all portable aficionados and gadget freaks.
