Sony PSP Go (first look)
The Sony PSP Go sports the design the portable PlayStation should've had the first time around.
- Feels great to hold, sliding mechanism is firm
- Too early to make a definitive judgement!
It's way too early to make a definitive judgement on the Sony PSP Go, but from our early hands-on experience, we can't wait to find out more.
In essence the Sony PSP Go is a Mylo with the keyboard ripped out and replaced by game controls. Indeed, we wouldn't be too surprised if Sony used most of the scrapped cases from that funky, defunct device. But we digress. After spending some time with the Sony PSP Go, it felt great in-hand.
Whipping through turns at 60 frames per second in Gran Turismo (new for the PSP), the Sony PSP Go's screen was able to keep pace with the action. In fact, Gran Turismo looked fairly pristine. (We wish we could say the same for our driving.)
The Sony PSP Go has only one analogue nub, and we like the fact that it's a little more recessed to prevent accidentally knocking against it mid-game.
Little Big Planet was an equally slick-looking title on the Sony PSP Go, fully carrying over the look and feel of the console original.
Even though the Sony PSP Go has got a 16GB HDD, it didn't feel like too meaty in the hand. The sliding mechanism felt firm and when shut it'll obviously make for a better video-viewer on your next flight.
The Sony PSP Go will be priced at $US249 (around $300 Australian), in October when they are due to be released in the states, Europe and Asian markets.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.
I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.
As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.
I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!
For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
