Report: PSPgo Goes Bye-Bye
Oops edit: AV Watch says Sony JP has confirmed the report.
A blog written by someone who claims to be a Japanese Sony Shop employees says the PSPgo is being discontinued and they won’t be getting any more shipments of it. This jives with the online JP Sony Shop listing, which says it’s out of stock and they don’t know when or if they’ll get more. (That’s what the little orange button above the price means.) There is still supply in the US, though, both from Sony Style and other retailers, and I’ve seen nothing to indicate they’re running out of stock over. But, then, that may just be because nobody is buying whatever stock they have left, even at the discounted price point of $199.
This development should come to no surprise to anyone considering the Go only sells a couple hundred units a week. It was only a matter of time.
