Sony Computer Entertainment Europe have announced the first details of Go!Cam, the 49.99 ($68) video camera attachment for its PSP, along with Go!Edit, its portable photo and video editing suite with full internet uploading functionality.
Intended for release on May 16th in Europe, the Go!Cam will allow both 2.5 hours of video recording time and up to 40,000 photos per 4 gig memory stick, and includes a built in microphone and a vertically tilting lens to change the direction both toward the user and away.
The 49.99 ($68) price tag will also include Go!Edit, Sony's bespoke editing software which allows for portable editing of both photos and video, with sound and graphic effect enhancements, as well as the ability to upload Go!Cam creations to the internet directly from the PSP itself.
Said SCEE PSP marketing manager Stephane Hareau, "Go!Cam is fantastic news for all those PSP owners looking for something new, fun and creative. With Summer around the corner and the ability to turn your PSP into a mini camcorder and capture all the best moments in your life, this is yet another reason to get a PSP and to take advantage of truly portable entertainment."
