Sony Reportedly Ends PSP Go Production 47

Sony's PSP Go launched in late 2009 to mixed reviews and tepid sales. A little over a year later, Sony announced the portable console's successor, the NGP, leading to speculation about how long the PSP Go would last. Now, a report out of Japan suggests production on the device is winding down. Sony responded to inquiries about the report with vague PR-speak, but a UK retailer confirmed that they wouldn't be receiving replacements once their current stock ran out.

    People dislike it because it sold for about 100 dollars more than the standard PSP, and not only did it not bring anything new to the table, but it was functionally inferior. Yeah, it didn't need a stack of discs to work, but neither does the original model - they all have access to the same online store, only the "classic" design has access to an even greater library of games thanks to the magic of physical media, and generally at lower prices.
