I got one really cheap ($30) and let me tell you, the novelty wears off QUICKLY. At any price it is still just a PSP with a limited library, the only was I would personally recommend it is if you did have a large number of legitimately purchased titles from the PSN store. Otherwise save your cash.


What novelty? Being able to play kickass games on the go with a cool, sleek, lightweight and highly portable design?

And what other kind of purchases are there from the PSN store other than legitimate ones?

To anyone that enjoys RPGs at all and do not have a PSP, here is what is loaded on my Go:

- Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together
- Final Fantasy Tactics: War of the Lions
- Final Fantasy VII
- Final Fantasy VIII
- Final Fantasy IX
- Xenogears
- Vagrant Story
- Lunar: Silver Story
- Wild Arms 2
- Grandia
- Valkyria Chronicles II
- Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness
- Disgaea 2
- Jeanne D'Arc

For action fans, I also have:

- Killzone: Liberation
- Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker
- Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops
- Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror
- LittleBigPlanet

All available at the click of a button - no swapping games in and out. I like that on consoles, but it rocks even more for a portable device.

Yeah mine is on the list in Michigan, though like I said I went to the store and they really did have it but it wasn't on the shelf, they checked it on their computer, but said that the status was "pulled for liquidation" which they said meant they weren't allowed to sell it and that they were sending it back to the manufacturer, so.. just cuz a store has it doesn't mean they will sell it to you which sucks..!


This is true, just because it's listed as in stock on the site doesn't mean you'll find it in the store. The chance of getting one for $31 is extremely YMMV. I tried to get a black PSP Go back when they were around $60-70 on clearance at Sam's Club and there weren't any at the store despite the site saying it was in stock. Not really worth hunting for IMO, unless you have a friend that works a Sam Club that can get more detailed stock info.

If your going hunting for a PSP you could always pick up a PSN card so your trip isn't a toal waste. Thye usually have tehm a couple bucks off.


I'm sure that's what they want you to do ;). Hunt for clearance items, and when you don't find any you end up paying for non-clearance items so it won't be a waste lol.

For this price its the perfect thing for playing cheap PSn downloadable games, old PS1 downloads, and some of the not to shabby minis that you get for free via psn plus.

This sucks. I live about an hour and a half from beavercreek.


You live in Halo land or what? J/K Too bad there is no way to search a local store online via their website. If I find some i'll post and might even pick up a few..

At this price, if you can find one, I see no reason not to get it. Even if you have almost no interest in the PSP's gaming library, this device is worth $30 as a portable media player.

Damn I would love one for $30 bucks but there's never any near NYC. I still use the launch day psp 1000 and I loved it but I feel like its too big.

Just went into the Gainesville, FL Sam's and asked 3 different employees if they had it. The first told me they had one in stock but they couldn't find it. Apparently it had been pulled for liquidation on Monday.

Same here, don't know if they actually do check but i'll take his word for it instead of driving out 25 miles or so. The rep. even told me they can't check their computer because it's not even in the system anymore.

If anyone actually happens to stumble upon one at this price, I would gladly pay for it and a little extra for the effort.

I guess since no one is finding it and since the stores that actually have it for 30 dollars are not allowing you to purchase the item as of yesterday they are all marked as "pulled for liquidation" we can mark this thread as dead. Hope at least 1 of us got in on the deal!

Thanks, saved me a trip. They call that side of campus the "student ghetto" and it gets skectcher the farther east you go.

I went to Sam's today and they didn't have any PSP stuff at all, I suspect they haven't had any PSP Stuff for quite some time which probably explains the liquidation thing.
