PSP Go becomes PSP No as production and shipments end

PSP Go no longer in production

It's the end of a very short era as Sony's abortive experiment in a digital distribution-only platform quietly dies.

Sony Computer Entertainment Japan has formally announced an end to production and shipments for the PSP Go, reports Andriasang. This confirms yesterday's rumors from retail sources in the UK.

Future sales for the system will be limited to current stock, while SCEJ has attached "shipment ended" notices to the listings for the PSP Go on PlayStation.com. The product has also disappeared from the index pages of Sony's online shop.

Sony will still be supporting the PSP-3000, and said that "it is a very exciting time for PlayStation portable devices. Before the end of the year we are launching NGP... which we believe will revolutionize portable gaming. In the meantime, the current generation of PSPs continue to be in demand, especially since the introduction of our value for money Essentials range of games, and we will continue to meet that demand."

Retailers who were cut out of the software supply chain due to the Go's reliance on digital distribution probably won't miss it. And Sony may wish to forget the poor thing ever existed.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
