its like everybody(?) wants the new psp to have another thumbstick, why the hell does the new psp only has one? WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY?????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I think there'd be no negative backlash and it would actually get people interested in PSP Go as it doesn't seem to offer anything whatsoever at the moment, so it's baffling to who Sony will try to sell it but I guess we'll find out more @ E3. Anyway, games would simply be made with two control schemes, just like PlayStation titles before them as most all of those (except for Ape Escape and such titles) were compatible with the first PlayStation controller that lacked both analog sticks (and yet most played better than PSP equivalent titles somehow, it's like developers forgot how to design controls) unlike the later developer Dual Shock. But yeah, this has been discussed before. No 2nd stick, deal with it :P
Why can't you write coherently? There truly is a multitude of question, anyone with half a brain cell can work ... [more]
This seems to be pretty much an aesthetic change for the PSP with some extra stuff to help future proof it a little more I guess (Expandable memory, purely digital distribution). This isn't a "new generation" of handheld console in the traditional sense of completley new hardware and software lineups etc. hence why you're not seeing a complete overall of it's controls or functionality.
As much as I would have liked to see a 2nd nub, and as much as I am certain it would have made the system of must-buy for me, I'm coming to terms with it not happening anytime soon. Through proper medication and counseling, I've come to accept that the PSP/PSP-GO for this generation and possibily the next if they implement backward compatibility will not have a second analog stick. And, I am okay with that. Tomorrow the sun will rise, the Earth will turn and the PSP will continue to be a 1 nub console. Time to either get on board or wait a few years for whatever may follow. I haven't made up my mind on what I plan to do, but I am at peace with a single analog PSP universe. It just means that the only games I'd consider playing on the system are turn based RPGs, which is what I mostly play on the DS anyway.
Firstly, it isn't the PSPs successor. A feature like that seems like something that would be included in its successor rather than a simple hardware revision.
I really do hope there is a successor to the psp with dual analog nubs, but as has been said this isn't a true successor, and as such is forced to operate within the boundaries of games previously available on the system.
Lets be real, the Sony Go is a complete desperation move, removing the UMD slot almost makes it a PSP2, in that it alienates anyone who has been buying games for the system so far. In their mind the reason games aren't selling is because of piracy, the reality is noone wants gimped control ports of console games like Sony banked on. They should be making the successor now, instead they are testing the waters on a only download service.
The Sony Go isnt gonna do well i have a feeling, its not very innovative and doesnt build on what they have already done to the Sony PSP line. they could simply add a better UMD drive (Maybe one that slot loads) but they don't, Instead they totally remove it and cut off the Go! community from a whole series of games. So there is no surprise they dont add something like dual thumbsticks that would actually be an innovation.

Is that supposed to be relevant? I said -only- download service. There's a difference between having the occasional game and every game only available through download.
