PSPgo has built-in Wi-Fi that enables you to download the latest games, music, movies, TV shows and comics instantly. There is no need to wait in lines at the local Wal-Mart for the newest game, and you won’t ever have to worry about losing or breaking your games because everything is stored on the hard drive. This feature also helps the device be even more portable because you don’t have to remember to carry around the UMD discs or cartridges.
One of the more innovative features included with this handheld game console is a Skype feature. The Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and webcam capabilities enable an effortless connection to Skype. You can call your friends or chat online, all for free. To download the application, simply click on the Sony icon on the Skype homepage and follow the directions. The download process only takes a few minutes.
Browsing the internet with this portable game console is much like it is with a cell phone. The sites are slow to load and there is no Flash capability. That being said, the browsing is as fast on the PSP Go model as it is on any of its competitors. Internet browsing is especially fast and useful when you’re visiting news sites and other websites without Flash widgets. You can also read and send emails using the device.
This product has more internal memory than any of its competitors do, largely because there are no cartridges or discs to play handheld video games. There is 15GB of memory included with the device, but there is more external memory available that can increase the storage capacity to 32GB. You can use this storage to keep games, videos, music, photos and other digital files.
The screen is bright and can be seen in daytime or at night equally as well. The screen resolution is fantastic at 480 by 272 pixels. The 32-bit color support is also excellent. Overall, the graphics on this device are akin to the PlayStation 2, and the screen has outstanding picture quality.
