Does anyone know if you can reset the PlayStation Network account or do you have to log in under the previous owner's PSN account? I want to download Darius Burst, but I've never used PSN before.


I hate to quote myself, but does anybody know whether or not I'll be able to create my own PSN account to use on my recently acquired Go? Wikipedia said that the system is forever linked to whatever account is set up first, but I'm hoping there's a workaround...

I created a PSN account and linked it to my PSPGo VERY easily. To be fair, I lost access to the downloaded version of Socom that was already on there, but I didn't see it as a big loss, so I was fine with it.

What article from wiki? Anyways, yes you can create a new account easily. Don't know why you haven't tried it? Also, once you do, you will not be able to play the prev. owner games.

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

I'm still waiting for my cables to come in because my hand can get slightly cramped from playing, but it has still been really neat. I own a 1000 and a 2000 and played them a bit, but the Go has really brought me back into enjoying the PSP library.

in regards to the wiki
The PSP Go Wikipedia page mentions "a PSP must be linked to a single PlayStation Network account." but that means one at a time so you can not have two on one device at once i believe.

Got one as well. Thanks again OP! Also, does any keep getting an error where it won't update and keep stating that it cannot connect to the server? I've tried to do it manually, and for some reason it downloads at 300-500 KB/sec. And it takes a while to download for some reason. Thanks for any help!

I had problems updating through the system but was able to grab 6.60 off the official PSP site with no problems. It was around 35Mb maybe and only took a few seconds to download for me.

I've been playing with mine all week. Someone mentioned the novelty wearing off. While my hand gets a little cramped it has really made me rediscover some great stuff in the PSP Library that i had missed. I got one of my two fully set up and ready to go. (no poor pun intended) minus my cables I'm waiting on to hook it up to the TV.

I kind of keep trying to bump this thread. If you are on the fence still. 50 dollars is a great price for the hardware, and investing a little more can get you a neat on TV set up. Plus with the GameStop UMD sale that just ended and with how cheap UMDs are helps a bit.a lot of games outside of the more hard to come by and super popular ones are under 10 dollars.

The only issue I've had was that the power switch and the wireless switch are too low I always fear accidentally flipping one.

If you guys are having trouble picking this up for $50, don't buy one. There are too many pros to outweigh the cons for the system. 16gb of space is really all the space you ever need to put a couple games, some wallpaper pictures, and maybe a soundtrack or two. If you have a problem with space, you can always delete the games you don't play and put them on at a later date or you can pony up the extra cash for a memory stick. I thought the psp go was a steal for this price, assuming you can get a good one. I actually like less people buying the psp go @ $50 because it might mean we might get another price drop on these bad boys soon. Still waiting for them to drop the DS XL @ this price point in the future. Don't really need it like the psp go but would be nice to have as well.

I don't really listen to music on portable gaming devices, but audiophiles claim that PSP GO has a lot better audio clearity over PSP Vita (and including PSP 3000s) when using the same headphones. I think I read one review where someone made a very bold statement saying it was better than the A-series.

also Jyabbz, i think you meant, buy one and not don't buy one by reading your context.

I meant for $50 absolutely buy a PSP Go. But if you are still having doubts then don't because it means the Go will sit in the shelves a little longer and maybe that will trigger a price drop for others on the fence.

So I just visit any local gamestop.
And ask if I can browse their used PSP Go selection and choose the best one & it'll be 50 plus tax right? Cool.
Do the controls change if you use your Dual Shock?
For example the dual Joysticks compared to the Just left the go has...

You can choose to set the right analog stick to d-pad, face buttons, left analog stick (no point in having the same thing on two sticks) or off.

That's it. Ask to see more then one if they have a few and have them plug it in. make sure it charges and holds a charge. that the screen is in decent shape all the buttons work OK and you are good to go.

and while you are there take a glance for the PSP Go starter kit for 5 dollars so you have a case for it and you will be all set.

No luck for me either. I'm not sure how they distribute these for sales but none of my GS stores have had any for a while. Bummer. Ebay prices don't look good either especially when you can't check the unit out before purchase.

Thanks OP. Managed to pick one up. There are some slight scratches at one portion of the screen but when the screen is on, I don't notice it that much. I have a 2000 and picked up a Go just for the non-ghosting screen and portability. 16GB of space is plenty and if you are running out of space, compress your iso's to cso's. It doesn't add that much to the load times. At $50, you cannot go wrong. I have a hacked Vita as well and am considering going official with it now that I have a hacked Go.

Thanks, mink-e. The reason I asked is that I saw what the prices were for the games that the previous owner had already downloaded. I didn't want to pay for Metal Gear again, but on the other hand, I will probably want to put the two Capcom Classics, the Powerstone Collection and Taito Memories on it at some point.

For anyone looking for a case for a psp go, Sears is clearancing out the traveler cases at 4.97 each and the matching in ear headsets for 2.97. I got some last night and the traveler case really makes the unit a lot easier to hold while playing. Headset isn't bad either.

Love the Taito classics. Taito Legends was always in my PSP.
Aside from the good new PSP games the classic collections were a great reason to grab a PSP.

Taito Legends Power-Up
Activision Hits Remixed
Capcom Classics Collection
EA Replay
Midway Arcade Treasures
Namco Museum

Guys if you have 7500 PUR points you can get $10 off a pre-owned/used or refurbished PSP. Might sweeten the deal for you guys @ $40 + Tax. I really don't need another one but @ $40 it really is a steel :lol:.

Did anyone else buy the Go just for its TV out with dual shock ability?

It was the main draw to me as I can't stand looking at portables for too long. Just figures too with the rumor of a new Vita edition coming out with HDMI Out. >_>

At least that will make it full screen.

Yeah I bought it just for this. I generally like to play my games on the largest screen possible. However you should know if you do use the Go it doesn't stretch out fully on to the screen with the component cables. Its still much bigger than playing it on the Go but its just something people should be aware of before purchasing.
