Sony shop employee gossips on PSPgo's demise

It's no secret that the PSPgo was a bloody awful thing. Though the intent was admirable, the delivery was a failure, with expensive hardware, expensive games, and simply less support than previous PSP models. Apparently, the thing has had t...

PSPgo hacked, can run Lumines now

Team 17: PSPgo's problem was price, not digital content
