Sony Planned For PSP Go From Day One

Sony Computer Entertainment's product planning division boss, Naoya Matsui, stated that Sony "planned to release a PSP model without a UMD drive since the very beginning."

"But if we'd simply released the hardware, there wouldn't have been much for everyone to enjoy. We needed to prepare the right environment for it first - things like the transferral of content with the PS3 and PSN, and PC software to manage content like music and movies such as Media Go."

"We wanted to release it when the delivery of digital content was on par with the delivery of physical media. That's what we've been working on these past two years. We'll be selling the PSP Go alongside the existing PSP models, because it's a product targeted at those people who are more accustomed to digital content."

PSP Go is set launch in the US and Europe on October 1, and in Japan a month later.

Sony Planned For PSP Go From Day One

Admit Sony: You never tought your precious umd's would crash and burn in the video area. Well, for at least 3 years that i saw that your plan was flawed. Psp's make a ton of noise with umd's. You should have focused on your precious memory sticks
