PSP camera is not coming to the US

According the guys at Siliconera, the PSP Chotto Shot/Go!Cam is not going to hit stateside. The reason was gleaned from a PR person when he said that cell phone cameras are too powerful to even bother releasing the device. The Chotto Shot camera only has 1.3 MegaPixels, while most mobile cameras have around 2.

I wouldn’t say that this is a complete loss, considering that we’re still getting the GPS device. It just sucks that you can’t show your buddy where you are, then take a picture for reference. Even if the Chotto Shot made it over, the top of your PSP could get rather busy. Imagine having this hulking thing on top of your PSP and trying to put it in your pocket. The possibility of broken electronics is endless.
