Nintendo’s DS and Apple’s iPod Touch may be facing a stiff competition on Sony’s just-launched PSPgo.

The latest version of its PlayStaion Portable video-game system, the PSPgo sports a different look than its predecessor. Its now pocket-sized, has a sliding screen with a 3.8 inch display, a built-in Bluetooth, and is 43% lighter. The most exciting feature though is that the new PSPgo offers full-length, portable games which will be available in an all-digital format.

Users won’t be bored with the extensive selection of content either. New stuff from the PlayStation Network include the much-anticipated Gran Turismo and MotorStorm. Exclusive games and videos on the PlayStation Store include PixelJunk Monsters Deluxe, Fat Princess: Fistful of Cake, and LocoRoco 2: Midnight Carnival. Sony is also offering “bite-sized minis” such as Tetris and Fieldrunners for those who are looking to have something to play while waiting for the bus or something. 😉

According to an article from, in all, Sony is offering more than 150 titles previously released, 60 original PlayStation classics, more than 2,300 movies and 13,000 TV shows.

“When we launched the PSP-1000 in 2005, it was clear that there was a huge demand for not only a great portable gaming system, but a complete portable entertainment device,” said John Koller, director of Sony’s Hardware Marketing group. “Since then, the PSP has sold more than 15 million units in North America and 53 million units worldwide.”
