Leaked in late May 2009 just before E3 where it is expected to be announced, the PSP Go is the next generation handheld gaming unit from Sony. Featuring a 3.8" screen, 16GB of internal storage, Bluetooth support for pairing with headsets and cellphones, and a Memory Stick Micro slot for expansion, the device will feature the same number of buttons as the original PSP - contained in a slide out keypad. The main selling point of the unit will be the fact that it will be higly integrated with existing Sony consoles and media outlets, allowing for users to enjoy high quality games, video and audio on the go, with a much more mobile device - smaller and 43% lighter than the current PSP. Nevertheless, the device is not planned to replace the original PSP device, which will continue to be sold. A price or release date have not yet been released. More information will be added to this report as it becomes available.

I'm a huge fan of digital distribution, and with the amount of DD already happening on the PSP platform through piracy this was really a matter of time. I'm REALLY hoping there's a touch-screen, that hasn't been announced yet, if not then this could fall flat on its face. Also the form factor is somewhat awkward, but I have issues with most hand-held devices, so it might not be that big of a deal. We'll just have to see in a couple days when more details are released.
