Not really, but the cradle is nice because it can also charge your Go while it's plugged into the TV, but basically it makes everything much cleaner for use because you can just have it plugged into the cradle. More for convenience if anything.


and I assume battery drain while outputting is way higher so the battery would last even less.


Cool guys, thanks bought a Beautiful looking White PSPGo, Cradle and Component Cable for less than 60! Psyched for some Dissidia and FFTactics WOTL on the TV :D

Battery drain is way less, and that's without putting it on the cradle? Very interesting. I may want to get one soon, if I didn't want to spend the same amount on a Sega Saturn, or something that might pop up on Craigslist or etc.

This sucks, because if you want to properly use the cradle to output the video to the TV and charge while doing so, you have to buy an extra AC adapter that was used with the older PSP models.

No idea why they didn't put two usbs on the cradle, instead of one usb and the yelllow charge nub for the older ones.

Now I have to buy an old school psp adapter as well to charge while playing connected to my tv. yay.

It's pretty much necessary from the extra battery drain from outputting and using bluetooth to use a PS3 controller with it.

Looks like you can get an extra one for like 4 bucks shipped on amazon (ac adapter).

Bit the bullet and bought a like new PSP Go Cradle from Amazon through a third party seller for $22.99 shipped. Finding a Psp Go cradle locally for me is like finding a needle in a hay stack, good thing the component cables are cheap and I already have psp 3000 wall charger. Will be going on vacation and this is the best alternative to having a home console. Now have to buy more PSP games to keep me busy.

I'm torn about keeping this. I love it, although a tad small for my hands. I might trade it for some super nintendo systems and games at the flea market this weekend.

If you're a j-rpg person this is the ideal time to pick one up.

Tons of square PSone era rpgs are half off (for the next week I believe).

4.99 for most.

You can look into the PSN thread to get an idea of what things generally cost when they go on sale, but generally that's when people buy PSN stuff. There is a weekly sale for PSN stuff that updates generally around Tuesday each week, so just kind of browse through and take a look to get a good idea. Price of course will vary, so I can't really give you an accurate estimate since I don't really know exactly what you'd be purchasing.

Battery drain is less because the screen for the go is turned off when outputting to a TV and that is the most significant drain on the battery. I haven't used the Go but I'm sure it is the same as the 3000.

That still doesn't make sense to me for such a small screen; I would assume it needs more power to send through the cables. Do you have any proof or article I could read on it?

I still have a backlog of Win 98 games sealed, at least I'm done w/ my floppies! :lol:

For one thing, sending the display signal isn't the same as powering the LCD screen.

That's the one reason I didn't like it. looks like Sony was trying to cash in on those accessories. Think about it. Wouldnt be awkward if you were able to charge and play at the same time? Then the screen would be up and your hands would probably cramp.

also, the psp go screen is not better, Its about the same vs psp 3000.

haha. I still have my psp 1000 too. Have it in a star wars metal case. U should use it to burn your collection into iso before moving it on the go.

I have to admit, the white does look nice.

For those looking for a cradle, I'd suggest checking your local Toys R Us irregardless of what their website says. According to the TRU site, there are no cradles within 50 miles of me. Yet when I went to the store near me, they had 4 of them (and 1 of the component cables as well).

Opened up my craigslist PSP 3000 and found out that the 3000 had a built in screen protector on the faceplate, tried to clean it out but too much scratches and when I tried to clean out the inside screen, I must have press to hard because there is a faint black streak where I was cleaning the inside screen :bomb:. Looks like I will be picking up a new shell (faceplate and backplate) and screen to fix my mess. Might turn it to a white PSP until Target clearances out the PSP 3000 Core to $50.

Holy cow, how does anyone use this thing? Found a black one in fine (not perfect, but no worse than it'd look after a little use) condition and picked it up.

Played a little on it and my hands are cramping terribly after just one race. Can't imagine playing for more than 5-10 minutes on this thing! Seriously, did anyone use it before they started selling these? Can't wait to return it cause it's worse than useless to me.

Granted, I'm not a small guy (6'3", 275lbs) but I was truly hoping it'd work for me as a small game machine for downtime at work. Looking for something more than a cell phone and thought this might be perfect. Nope.

If anyone is still in search of a accessories.. The store locator for my TRU said they didn't have any cradles in stock, but they had a bunch of Go stuff in stock. I got 2 cradles, component cables, and a nice leather case for $35.

What have you guys been playing on your new PSP systems? I've been playing a lot of Puzzle Quest and NBA 2k13. Really nice to have on the road.

Thanks for the info. Supposedly there aren't any cradles Go near me, but I have a feeling that the website is wrong.

That's why DS3 support is so important to so many of us :)

Probably doesn't help you with your sneaky gameplay at work problem, though, unless you can hide the Go in your field of vision somewhere and use the DS3 in your lap under your desk.

I guess it wouldn't hurt to stroll in my local TRU though i doubt the will have any PSPGo stuff since it's pretty much desolate of any game accessories
