I'm somewhat upset to see it finally being put to rest.

Farewell!

I loved the design but there were never any good games on the PSN store. The good ones only ever came out on UMD.

The Go might still be a decent purchase once the NGP comes out as Sony claims they'll have titles in the PSN store on the same day the physical copy comes out.

I love mine to death, although I was sad they dropped the price for a tiny bit and shot it back up(200 bucks is A LOT, also what I payed for it).

Hahaha...I know that PSPGo is a failure and it will die in the future...But, it comes so quickly....

Well...Digital distribution is still in a nascent stage, plus in a country like Australia where internet speed is much (cough) much** slower than other OECD countries and F#@$$ diminutive download allowance, digital downloading market is not a viable choice for everyone....Of course, some folks still enjoy it but they're minority....the same theme can be applied to other developing countries as well....

So, I expect, to go a pure digital method for gaming consoles (both for handheld and home console) will never ever happen, not in my lifetime, folks...

I suppose....for the time being, I'm enjoying 'The Third Birthday' on UMD with my PSP-3000 which is still going strong with new games coming in....

One thing is certain for sure...i.e., a physical media will always be a part of invention for all consoles, for PSP2 of course, even for PSP3 or PSP4 in 2030, no matter how the internet has advanced!!

Above all else, the discontinuity of PSP Go has perceptibly indicated that physical copies still have a large role to play in a market-economy of gaming realm in the twenty-first century...

the world is not ready for download-only gaming as a both retro and current game collector, with everything from an atari 2600-X360 this is worthless to me and i'm quite happy with my original PSP-1000 and all my UMDS
