Tech4idiots just got news that the PSP Go is Dead. =(


Report confirms the Sony handheld has been put to rest. A report from IGN reveals that Sony Japan (SCEJ) has officially announced that it has ceased the production of the PSP Go and that the only ones that can still be for sale will be from the current available stock.

Here’s qoute from the IGN report:

A Japanese report from Phileweb (translated by Andriasang) says the company has formally announced it is ending production of the digital-only handheld, confirming a rumor that surfaced yesterday from an alleged Sony Store employee. This will allow Sony to shift its focus to the NGP, which is expected to ship in at least one territory by the end of this year.

The PSP Go was released on January 11, 2009, originally sold at 26,800 yen in Japan and at $250 in the US market. With the absence of a UMD slot, it attracted some attention to adopt a new style for downloading games while utilizing a built-in memory but it never really got off.

PSP Firmware 6.38 now available!

Posted on April 19, 2011

Sony has released a new official firmware update for the Playstation Portable. You can use your PSP’s Network Update feature to download firmware version 6.38 via wifi.

This new update does not really include any exciting features. The only thing Sony said about the update is that it’s just an improvement on the system’s software stability. This just a small security update by all means. For the PSP-1000, 2000, and 3000, you can download the US update here and the EU updates here. And for the PSP Go, you can get your update here.

And if you want to keep your homebrew on your PSP and since there’s really nothing new in this update except for some small security patches, you might to skip this update.
