PSP Go Details Revealed in June 2009 Issue of Qore
Update: Complete specs and videos from the June issue of Qore are available on YouTube, but the latter one appears to have been removed.
In the video, Qore host Veronica Belmont discusses the new PSP Go handheld with Sony's John Koller who mentions the handheld (which features 16GB of internal storage, a memory slot for expandable memory and bluetooth) will not replace the current PSP-3000 - they will coexist.
According to Koller, new titles will be revealed for the platform at E3, specifically: a new Metal Gear Solid and Jak & Daxter. Also, expect Sony's E3 briefing to mention Jak & Daxter PSP (announced previously) and Gran Turismo PSP - which has been known since the birth of the platform. Get those bingo cards out, kids!
Images grabbed by the Gaming Console Network confirm PS3's virtual magazine (Qore) made its latest issue available early and revealed the (long-rumored) PSP revision.
As rumors and mockups theorized, the PSP Go in the images features no UMD drive and a sliding screen. It also features a single (and poorly positioned) analog stick. Adding fuel to the fire, PlayStation LifeStyle has posted an image it states is of the actual retail packaging for the soon-to-be announced handheld iteration - and both designs match.
It appears, with the video, PSP Go is all but confirmed. Only a few days until we find out if the madness is true.

im just wondering how it will play older games with the UMD that people might have
Sony will add all the back catalog to the digital store (hopefully at reduced prices) and have said the new PSP will co-exist with the current one, rather than replace it.
I don't like the new design at all. The screen size has shrunk from 4.3" to 3.8" but the big screen is something I like about my PSP.
The analog nub is in an even worse place now too and the sliding screen is almost pointless.
just tell me if that people have someone to tell that them that the new psp had to have a second analog. and what does the analog there..... how can we play with that.... so many people working in design, future, elegance, etc.... and know one to tell that must have 2 analog...
this is ridiculous.... a waste of time and money.....
i understand everyone is upset about the single analog nub , but anyone think about a bluetooth/wireless controller? like a wireless ps3 controller with everything thats needed for gaming? might happen...
