The lights are on
UPDATE: Sony has responded in regards to the PSP Go relaunch rumor, stating that the speculation is "nothing but that."
ORIGINAL STORY: Rumors have been budding up regarding a relaunch of Sony’s PSPgo. The digital-only handheld was welcomed with very little fanfare when it launched last October, and sources are reporting that Sony wants a do-over.Gamervision reports that this mulligan is due to hit very soon, and that a larger marketing campaign will be championing the attempt to claim glory (and sales). If this hearsay ends up being true, hopefully a price reduction would be part of Sony’s new deal.
We've contacted Sony for comment, and we'll be sure to bring you any new developments on this rumor.If the PSPgo relaunched $50 cheaper, would you give it another look? Can’t remember what the doo-hickey is all about? Check out our video review.

It's a failure for a reason. And selling a piece of crap cheaper doesn't make it more appealing. I have ZERO interest in this thing. Seriously, why buy something that doesn't play the games and movies i already have that work on a "regular" PSP?
How about let me play my UMD's in peace. why would I buy a game that iv been wanting to play anxiously on the psp then have to download it from a paper-thin card and wait an hour for it to fully download. The psp go has an awesome design but just add the UMD's and ill think twice about it ;D
If someone feels like giving me a PSP Go for some reason then I'll take it, but even if you offered it to me for just $20, I'd still pass. That's a cool $20 I could use to buy something good. Good as in the opposite of "suck" which is what the PSP Go does. Sucks like a Hoover.
they could hand it out for free and i'll still end up trading it in.i'll stick with my psp slim.
no, renting and borrowing games would be obsolete. i don't wnat to buy a bad game and have to keep it.
No, and I consider myself to be a Sony fanboy. But I don't want this ***.
ATTENTION ALL HATERS ON THE NEW PSP. listen if your a grown man this isn't for you but if your a teen like me not old enough to work and have to rely on parents for money think about this. is it easier for you to ask mom hey can i have 40 dollars and some tax money for a psp umd? or is it easier when your at a gas station to say while were her can i have a 20 dollar (AND NO TAX) playstation network card. and repeat next time you go to a gas station think people!
Hopefully touch screens are a fad (comment to one other commentor(?)) And I actually would buy this for about 200 bucks it has 16 gigs of memory and I've downloaded more than that worth of games on the PSN but even with 12g's of psp memory I cant fit even half of them on my memory cards some games are HUGE.
Btw: @Timmy the turd
It is not that easy with a UMD I've had times where I bought a new game and not been able to play it all weekend because it kept saying that I needed to update off the disc but without more that 85% charge it won't start the update so then when I get home and have the charger It wont even start then, it will still wait for it to reach that charge EVEN THOUGH IT'S PLUGGED INTO THE FRIGGIN WALL!
Though I don't expect much success to come from this re-launch, the least they can do is lower that ridiculous price. Regardless, I won't be buying one. My PSP works fine and after playing a PSPgo for a while, I find it very uncomfortable to use.
I have a PSP-1000, and I bought a PSPGo for 2 reasons - curiosity, and the ability to have lots of games with me when I travel without having to carry a bunch of UMDS with me. I am an adult with money to spare, so the cost, though steep, seemed worth it to me for the convenience. I know most people hate the PSPGo, but I love mine. It fits in a pocket so much more easily than the PSP-1000, I find it very comfortable to use, and having my downloaded games available to play instantly without swapping discs is very nice (again, especially while traveling). The PSPGo may not be for everyone, but I'm sure I'm not the only one who loves it.
PSPgo sucks. Period. I would never give up my GoW PSP for that junk.
Yeah maybe if they re release it with two analogs. And the ability to play hard copies of games. And something that was more comfortable to hold. But thats kinda the opposite of what sony went for. I will never understand why...
I still dont want this game. I dont want a PSP Go! I don't care if you launch is 5 mounths later Im still not going to want it!
lol wow coooooooooooool
Well here's why i wont buy it. The control setup on the psp go makes some games hard to play. Ex: Midnight club
Good thing they're not relaunching, it still wouldn't sell well. I don't need to buy a new PSP that won't even play the games I bought.
I would not buy the PSP Go. I agree i like to buy my umd's and when i am finish trade them in and get a new game.Plus it to cost to for me and the SD card cost just as much as the games do no thanks to the PSP Go.
i have yet to regret buying the PSPgo i love mine.
I think I'll stick with the PSP-3000. The PSPGo turned out to be nothing but an epic fail, and there's no turning back with this disaster now. Sony should drop it all together and start looking into a TRUE successor to the PSP. HINT: Two analong sticks would sure be nice.
