The PSPgo entered the world as an ugly duckling. It simply didn't fit in, representing an awkward transition period between physical media and all-digital formats. Also, the whole “stupidly expensive” part probably didn't help. And so we stand before you today bearing somber news that the little-device-that-couldn't wasn't able to find a happy ending. World's three entire PSPgo owners, we're so sorry for your loss.
Sony confirmed the manufacturing halt to Japanese site AV Watch (
), noting that it now aims to “concentrate on the NGP.” The PSP-3000, however, is especially popular in Japan and – unsurprisingly – is in no danger.
"It will continue to be sold, and we will keep focusing our attention on it from here on out,” Sony explained.
On the bright side, the PSPgo definitely wasn't a terrible device, and – on top of last year's price drop – it's probably about to be cheaper than ever. If you're the type that adorns your house with failed technology – like some kind of hunter with more beheaded beasts than wallpaper – now's your chance to add another soon-to-be rare piece to your collection.
