New Colors Gracing The PSP Go?

It's still too early to determine if the PSP Go is a sales success for Sony but we do know many gamers aren't too keen on that $249.99 price tag. Well, maybe we just need more colors to choose from.

For the longest time, Japan has had a stranglehold on the multicolor concept for gaming hardware. You should see what they have available for their handhelds in the Land of the Rising Sun; it's a veritable rainbow of portable prettiness. Maybe that's one of the reasons such devices are more successful over there, and where is it written that we Americans don't enjoy different hues and shades of color? Well, thanks to a customer survey, it seems Sony will be launching several new colors for the PSP Go. What you're seeing here are all the potential winners (apparently) so maybe you'll get a chance to vote for your favorites. The survey comes from Hall & Partners Europe, "a firm that has some loose connection with Sony." So far, all we have are Piano Black and Pearl White but it appears many more could be on the way some time soon, so we'll stay on the lookout for any announcements. It might make the cost a touch easier to swallow...

You know, we've seen plenty of requests from gamers asking for more colors for their gaming units and it appears someone out there is listening.

If only a system were judged not on the color of it's shell, but the content of it's character.

Looks like it's time for another "You can't put lipstick on a pig" comment!

Nope nowhere near a good enough reason for me to want to consider purchasing this gobldigook product from the future!

If you ask me its very innovative but they are assuming its potential way to soon and I hate the fact that it seems sony won't pay for jumping the gun on gamers.

Like everyone else im waiting for a price drop or at least until something like th 'GO' is more practical in terms of its intended use.

still think it looks best in white.
i like black on almost everything, but that.
just makes it look fat and clunky, plus white is much more forgiving on smudges and scratches.

I'm definitely thinking about getting one of these in the spring. The enhanced portability and built in 16GB for downloaded games are just calling to me. I love my PSP-2000, don't get me wrong, but I definitely like the better portability with the smaller PSPGo.

Evidently you were blessed with the hands of a midget. My friend picked one up and I can't play on the GO for more than 30 minutes before my hands start to feel annoyed. However I am impressed with it's size and functionality in terms of being an all around media device.

These look cool but why not just use skins? You get protection for your PSP and a cool look.

Ya I read about that earlier. Is anyone tired of these trailer/videos? I miss the old days when all I knew about a game before it came out was from magazines (text/pictures). Now it seems game designers like to show way too much of a game. I like my experience to be fresh.
