Sony finally lowered the price of the UMD-less PSP.
Last week Sonyannounced to cut the price of the Sony PSPGo to $199, which is $50 cut. If this price-cut will help sales of the PSPGo remains to be seen.
The major difference in the PSPgo is that the UMDdrive is gone and replaced by 16GB internal flashmemory. This means you need to get your games and mediaonline. Features of the PSP-N1000 include 3.8 inches (16:9) TFT with 480 x 272 pixel, Stereo speakers, microphone, slide-out controls, Wi-fi (still just 802.11b), Bluetooth 2.0, M2 slot, USB and 16GB Flash. Measurements of the PSPgo are 128 x 16.5 x 69 mm and the weight is 158g / 5.6 oz. The advantage of the PSPgo is its flash memory. You do not have to deal with UMD discs. But this is also the limitation.
Amazon has shaved off a couple dollars on the white PSPGo bringing the price down to $196.39. The black PSPGo sells for $199. The problem is though that a normal PSP console is still way cheaper than the PSPGo. You can get for instance even a PSP 3000 Bundle with NFL 11 Game for $169.99 on Amazon right now.
