Sony's PSP Go handheld has been confirmed ahead of this week's E3 in Los Angeles, as a UMD-less 16gb memory handheld that plays digitally downloaded PSP games and will be sold alongside the regular PSP-3000.
Fansite GamingConsoleNetwork received an early version
of this month's Sony/Future Publishing-created Qore video show, and Sony's John Koller features in a video interview explaining the device.
According to a video excerpt of the interview, available via Kotaku
, Koller explains that titles such as LittleBigPlanet
, Gran Turismo
, Jak & Daxter
and even Metal Gear Solid
will be announced at E3.
The PSP Go has 16 gigabytes of Flash memory for storing games, movies and TV shows that will all be available via PlayStation Network and a wifi connection.
In addition, the PSP Go, which has a 3.8-inch screen and is 43 percent lighter than the PSP-3000, according to Koller's comments in the full version of the video, will have Bluetooth, enabling headset usage and cellphone tethering.
Following the announcement, European consumer site Eurogamer also discovered a number of official product shots
for the PSP Go, further underscoring the existence of the device.
The PSP Go will debut this Fall, and no price has yet been revealed for it. Full details on the handheld and its games will likely be announced during Sony's press conference this Tuesday in Los Angeles, at which Gamasutra will be present.
