I would say that this would be the year of the PSP if the Go wasn't stinking up the place. I still have no idea as to the extent of the backwards compatibility of the Go or even if its getting any BC support at all.
You have no idea? Really? I didn't think there was still anyone out there stilling waiting for a BC-solution for the Go to be announced. It ain't gonna happen.
But at Eusis said, what does that have to do with the quality of the games. And the 3000 is still on sale, you know.
Its more of a matter of which model do I get. How many new games are Go only? How many UMD games will receive digital distribution for Go owners? How long will it be before they release the Go 2000? Will any game worth its salt come out for the Go only? And so on...
There are a couple of PSP UMD games that I would like to get sometime in the future but will there be an option for Go owners (outside of third party support)?
And while I'm well aware of the third parties stepping up to the BC challenge, they are still third parties who may or may not release shoddy products.
Also I'm not somebody who automatically dismisses digital distribution because I'm too much of a bloody kleptomaniac.
And most importantly, I'm not made of money. I'm not likely to get both unless I can come across them cheaply, and I have to work at getting some of those games too unlike some people here apparently.
Once it becomes apparent that the Go isn't some failed attempt at upgrading the system. Then I'll start looking into getting one.
