The PSP Go (stylized PSPgo or PSP go, model PSP-N1000)[9] is a version of the PlayStation Portable handheld game console manufactured by Sony.[10][11][12][13][14] It was released on October 1, 2009 in American and European territories,[1] and on November 1 in Japan. It was revealed prior to E3 2009 through Sony's Qore VOD service.[13] Although its design is significantly different from other PSPs, it is not intended to replace the PSP 3000, which Sony will continue to manufacture, sell, and support.[11] On April 20, 2011, the manufacturer announced that the PSP Go would be discontinued so that they may concentrate on the PlayStation Vita.[4][15][16] Sony later said that only the European and Japanese versions were being cut, and that the console would still be available in the USA.[17]

Unlike previous PSP models, the PSP Go does not feature a UMD drive, but instead has 16 GB of internal flash memory to store games, video, pictures, and other media.[14] This can be extended by up to 32 GB with the use of a Memory Stick Micro (M2) flash card. Also unlike previous PSP models, the PSP Go's rechargeable battery is not removable or replaceable by the user. The unit is 43% lighter and 56% smaller than the original PSP-1000,[11] and 16% lighter and 35% smaller than the PSP-3000.[8] It has a 3.8" 480 × 272 LCD[18] (compared to the larger 4.3" 480 × 272 pixel LCD on previous PSP models).[19] The screen slides up to reveal the main controls. The overall shape and sliding mechanism are similar to that of Sony's mylo COM-2 internet device.[20]
