It turns out, there are some differences in hardware (which are yet unmentioned), and some games will be designed SPECIFICALLY for the PSP Go. A new Resident Evil [GameSpot] game coming out in 2010, is said to be designed specifically for the Go. The publisher isn't saying what they mean by that, whether it will work with a normal PSP at all remains to be seen. But frankly, if this means that games for the PSP will even be gimped, then you can kiss the notion that the PSP3000 will have a peacefull place alongside the Go, goodbye.

I've got a bad fealing about this. This strikes me as a hostile move on Sony's part to try to rid themselves of the hastles of hard media, even at the expense of their existing user base. Sure they're saying all these nice things about how there is a place for both. Hell, they can sit around a camp fire and sing Kumbaya for all I care, but I think it's all an act. PSP3000 will be out the window by the holiday. Obviously, this is all speculation, but something just stinks.

I was worried until I saw the picture that GameSpot provided with this RE playing on a standard PSP. Not that's necessarily a guarantee, we've seen SCEA fuck up with Valkyria Chronciles and including it with the PSP games, but that seems to imply it's as designed for the PSP Go as Final Fantasy III was designed for the DS lite.

How was FFIII designed for the DSLite, they're identical hardware (except for backlight). My guess is that it will run on the PSP3000, except that there may be a few features missing.

Why did you feel the need to create an all new topic on this?

THAT'S the reason. They saw the lite, and made or at least touched up the graphics with their appearance on a lite kept in mind. Could be the same here, except perhaps it leans more towards internet connectivity and is only downloadable online.

The only thing added so far is a bluetooth compatibility and it's nothing really that huge. I say if there ARE extra features they probably won't be anything substantial and you should just relax.

Remember when Nintendo said the DS was *not* going to replace the Gameboy, and that they wanted to have the two coexist? Yeah, that tune soon changed when the DS came out.

Either the PSP will be too popular to support Go, or the PSP Go will be too popular to support UMDs. Regardless, if you start making Go exclusives, you've crossed that line.

Was it really necessary to create a new topic? Besides, do you really think that of all Japanese third party publishers, Capcom will ignore all those 10+ million PSP1/2/3000 users in Japan alone, given their successful track record on that particular system? Even if you offer a downloadable version, they still will be able to sell a lot of retail copies. Hence, not making the game available on UMD would be nothing short of bad business.

I'm willing to bet that it'll be download only for North America similar to Echochrome and Patapon 2.

It didn't help that Nintendo eased everyone into the DS with the GBA Micro.

In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.
