I decided to buy a hand grip from amazon to increase my enjoyment of the Go. I don't have large hands but it can get uncomfortable or awkward playing some games, especially those that use the nob. The stereo grip looks like a DS3 controller so hopefully it is more comfortable to hold. Of course this makes it less portable but you can always take the grip off if you aren't home. I do most of my gaming in the house and not mobile.

Just bought an 8GB M2 card for $10.50, I wasn't going to buy one, but after seeing how high priced even the 1GB ones are at, I decide to bite the bullet, Now I can carry RPGs and longer time taking games with shorter games that have big sizes like sports & fighting games for example. I calculated around 9 more games can be fitted inside the 8GB card. I won't buy a cradle unless I find one for $5 or less, damn new toy keeps adding cost :) (So far w/ taxes around $71 total for the PSP, case+screen protector+wipe cloth+headphones & now the M2 8GB card)

I haven't noticed any hand cramping playing games and I wear large size gloves, I do grab the machine w/ a lose cradle grab.
Loading of games is fast because obviously is in memory not on disc.

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

Nice, where did you find it at that price?

So, I was completely on the fence about getting a Go since I already have a Vita. The PSN FF series sale nudge me in the "buy" direction to use it as a dedicated PS1 device, so I decided to head down to my local Gamestop and if they still had one (had called over the weekend), then I would get it.

I got there and the guy basically said they did not have one, but he could order the refurbished one. I said no thanks and asked if they just sold the one they had. He claims they had not had one in months and the other reps must have been mistaken or confused it with another PSP. I asked him if he could "look anyways" and he pretty much denied my request stating he knows what they have...

Oh well... This would probably be where I vow not to do business with Gamestop ever again, but since I generally don't (mostly due to location, no bad history with them), I'm not going to fret over it.

GS in Steinway, NYC had a couple got one which is in good condition but the screen there is this scratch on it nothing major but its there and this GS wiped all the memory clean.


How many more were there? I might take a trip down to Queens if the PSP Go's are in good enough condition. It would be good if I can get a PSP Go for the price of a heavily discounted Vita memory card, that way I can put Vita games on the Vita instead of PSP games.

You mean those expensive boxes? Can you still buy one?

I use the PS3 3D TV Best Buy was selling for $99 a few months back that has the upscaler mode built in, and it's awesome. I read that the boxes introduced some small input lag, but I don't have any lag with the TV.

Not sure how many they had the guy on the phone said they had a couple, when I got there the first guy said they do not have any more and then the second said go check in the back. Walked out with a decent looking one with charger and usb cable.

Not sure those are original Sandisk M2 cards . . . there are tons of counterfeits on Ebay. Check the thread in the Vita/PSP forums on how to identify fake memory sticks, they're pretty common on Ebay.

I probably should have checked first. I guess I thought it would be okay because it had a SanDisk P/N and is a US seller.

so what's wrong if they are fake though? do they break easily?
Here is the one I bought for $10.50 : http://www.ebay.com/...984.m1423.l2649
People have been leaving him positive reviews about the card.

EDIT: have been reading a little bit about this subject, will test the card for actual size when it arrives on the 9th of feb. Push comes to shove, I open a case w/ PP and get my money back.

I noticed playing PSOne games on the go was way too tiny in original mode. Normal mode is small too. Stretching to full wide screen is distorting. But using custom mode to zoom in and resize without losing any screen space is much better. Games look incredible. I played an hour or two of Lunar:SSSC and it really popped. So I will need to do this zooming/resizing in custom mode for most of my games.

Even with my screen scratches the Go really shines. I love the screen. I would buy a brand new one if they still weren't so expensive. I debated on getting a 3000 since I wanted the bigger screen and more comfortable control position but he Go screen is so issue free and clear that I don't want to deal with ghosting or scanlines of the other versions.

Found a white one Tuesday in a hole in the wall gamestop I didn't know about. The go is perfect.....except for a discolored analog nub. Any ideas on how to clean that, or am I just being anal? No games left on the system, but that's ok. The gamestop employee actually tried to talk me out of buying it. First on the phone, then in person when I picked it up. Guess he was hoping I would get the used vita for $180.

Q-tip with hydrogen peroxide or isopropyl alcohol, I'd guess.

Or you could use a sharpie and color it in yourself.

Thanks OP and everyone else with suggestions on what to do with one of these.

I managed to find a white one in perfect condition (except for a discolored nub). The clerk was nice enough to let me look through the units and was patient with my questions, so I bought the $5 warranty along with it.

I plan to use it on a tv with a PS3 controller. Now to look up how to do it!

Glad to see the love for the PSP Go, now that it's cheap. I picked up a backup when they started getting clearanced. It really is a sweet system. Great screen, super portable, and optional hookup to the TV. I've been rocking mine for years. Love it. Still play it even as a VITA owner.
