: Complete specs and videos from the June issue of Qore are available on YouTube, but the latter one appears to have been removed.
In the video, Qore host Veronica Belmont
discusses the new PSP Go handheld with Sony's John Koller who mentions the handheld (which features 16GB of internal storage, a memory slot for expandable memory and bluetooth) will not replace the current PSP-3000 - they will coexist.
According to Koller, new titles will be revealed for the platform at E3, specifically: a new Metal Gear Solid and Jak & Daxter. Also, expect Sony's E3 briefing to mention Jak & Daxter PSP (announced previously) and Gran Turismo PSP - which has been known since the birth of the platform. Get those bingo cards out, kids!
Images grabbed by the http://gamingconsolenetwork.com/2009/05/30/gcn-exclusive-say-hello-to-the-psp-go/ confirm PS3's virtual magazine (Qore) made its latest issue available early and revealed the (long-rumored) PSP revision.
As rumors and mockups theorized, the PSP Go in the http://www.eurogamer.net/gallery.php?game_id=&article_id=587698 features no UMD drive and a sliding screen. It also features a single (and poorly positioned) analog stick. Adding fuel to the fire, http://playstationlifestyle.net/2009/05/30/pics-of-the-psp-go-retail-box/ has posted an image it states is of the actual retail packaging
for the soon-to-be announced handheld iteration - and both designs match.
