How Long Can The PSP Last?

By Andrew Shin

Good Saturday NextGen Player readers. I'm actually sitting inside on this fine summer day so that I could put forth another edition of our Mind Games feature. This is where we turn the stage over to you the reader and let you speak your mind.

For this week's segment, I want to pose the following question.

How long can the PSP last?

Why this question? Well, with the announcement of the PSP Go to be released later this year, there has been plenty of buzz regarding it's enhanced digital features and specifically the elmination of UMD media on the device. It's all about the internal hard drive (16GB built in to be exact) and downloading games and other media content. Sony has stated that it plans to support the exisitng PSP platform and UMD media. While Sony has shown the ability to support two generations of consoles at the same time with the PS2 and PS3, it`s a much different scenario with the PSP. In my opinion, the current PSP and UMD media days are numbered. Exactly when that will be, I'll give it between 2 or 3 years. But that's enough about me...let us know what you think.
