More PSP Go Questions Answered
The release of the PSP Go is fast approaching, and while it had a great showing at E3, many questions remain surrounding Sony’s plans for the handheld and their strategies for supporting it. Some people think that the PSP Go will be in direct competition with Apple’s iPhone once it’s released, but Sony has yet to outline their plans for any available applications or app stores.
Today, Sony helped shed some light on their agenda when SCEA PR manager Al De Leon spoke about the development process for applications on the PSP Go. While talking to CNET he stated that the cost of the development tools was greatly lowered so that more developers will have access to the system, thus allowing more applications of various experiences on the platform. De Leon states “It will be mostly games, but there’s certainly an opportunity to look at some non-gaming applications.”
Also in PSP Go news today is word of how much storage you may be able to get out of your PSP Go before extra memory is needed. De Leon also spoke on the storage space fo the system and commented on the average size of most games for the handheld. With an average size of 600-800MB, most gamers can expect to get over 15 games on their PSP go before searching for extra memory options. Of course, all this depends on whether or not the user has myriad applications or not. Also, it should be noted that the 600-800MB is merely an average size and not a parameter for what games should or should not be. So, gamers may find themselves downloading a game containing a GB or more.
