The rumored UMD-less iteration on the PSP hardware was made official yesterday when Sony announced the PSP Go. At about half the weight and size of it’s UMD compatible cousin, the compact PSP Go will feature slide down buttons, 16 GB of internal memory and an M2 card slot for expandable memory. The Go will also lack a UMD drive getting it’s content exclusively from digital distribution.
The PSP Go is set to launch in North America on October first and will set you back $249.
Contrary to what some may have thought, the PSP Go will not replace the larger traditional PSP and its disc media, for now the two units will in fact be sold side by side as different media options.
