Can I have the psp go

@randomfrankp the model of psp vita you have don't have the oled screen btw
Dayko (19 hours ago)
1:15 why do you compare the psp to the 3ds and not to the ds which it was actually competing against? Great video though.

Just an FYI the Vita is still striving in Japan since handheld gaming is HUGE there 😊 so it didn't bomb as hard as ppl think

I remember downloading Persona 3 portable, Final Fantasy Type 0, Valkyrie Profile, Crysis Core:Ff7 and Jeanne D'arc on my psp go, for free. They were so enjoyable that I will purchase some on my Vita on the PSN store. I'm mad that I can't get Crysis Core and Valkyrie Profile though.

Even though I haven’t touched my vita for a while... I will always love that I can play ps1 games on the go. Especially the final fantasy games!

Great to know about the D-brand skins being re-released, because ever since last year they did bring out skins but they quickly pulled them from the store as they had issues. WHen you removed the skin it would totally destroy the material of the Switch. Guess that's fixed. And yeah, PSP Go is my ALWAYS in my bag pocket emulator. I know i can emulate on a phone but i dont like "touch-screen controls" at all. I have a 2nd gen Vita since its JP launch and its still more compact than my Switch is. So it just depends on how long i travel/where i go which device i bring. Versatility :-) I wish Sony did more with the Vita. They didn't realize it to its full potential sadly.

I had the go and while I love my PSP 3000th. The go had the buttons a little 2 close for comfort. The Vita was a great console but the buttons while better were still 2 close and made it uncomfortable after half an hour of play. The switch on the other hand is what the Vita should have been. Fits perfectly in the hand and over long play it doesn't give you sore fingers.

I'd buy a Switch only if it didn't have such shit games and was made from good material. I think I might buy a PSVITA and mod it.

The problem with the Vita was Nintendo. Their systems are cheaper and are the likely GO TO for parents to give to their kids to keep them occupied. However, parents are more likely to just hand their kids some cheapo Android tablet. What with all the free games on there parents don't even have to buy games for them. The Vita and Switch is entirely geared towards the hardcore gaming crowd and instead of bought as a baby sitting device.

I’m still rocking both the psvita is a nice piece of hardware and the go is my favorite I still play it more than my switch

You should check out the Xperia Play (also known as the Playstation Phone), I'm pretty sure you'll like it! It's the same form factor as the PSP Go but is an Android phone. The slide out controller was made by the same guys who made the PSP go, and it has dual analog "touch" sticks. You can do emulation without any effort on Android, just get them from the Play store. There is also an official Sony PS1 emulator (you could buy PS1 games in the past but those were essentially the game packaged in an emulator) which you can hack and inject your own backups. They can be easily found for super cheap nowadays on ebay.

I prefer the original PSP because of the memory card. As it uses memory stick, you can get an adapter and put the microSD in it and enjoy.

Sony always messing up was a great system but of course overpriced memory cards and lack of games for it could think of tons of games that could have been made

Handhelds have always been special to me, from the Game Boy Color I still have, to my PSP GO(never had an original PSP) my PS Vita, all of my DSs over the years as well as my GBA and now my switch.

This guy plays emulated non-widescreen games stretched to 16:9 ruining the aspect ratio of the game. How can I falsify somebody's birth certificate to get him deported?

Ramón González (3 days ago)
Classicos Nostalgicos Just because you enjoy doing something in a dumb way doesn't mean it's not dumb.
Classicos Nostalgicos (3 days ago)
Seriously, you whining over such a dumb thing like the way he prefers the screen when playing a game? Its him who is playing the game that way, what diference will this do on your life? Btw I too prefer playing games fullscreen over the original aspect ratio on my handhelds since their screen are small it doesnt affect the graphics and games still look very good.
Ramón González (3 days ago)
randomfrankp I just read the comments of your subscribers and I can tell you don't really have the brightest or most tech literate bunch in here, most probably don't even understand what an aspect ratio is or don't know how to change it like you. I guess my words fall on dead ears. You should still stop eating soup with a fork tho, for yourself.

PSP Via was an excellent handheld well ahead of its time. The problem is its game library is stuck in Japan! So many good, great games didn't get localized. If they did, it would have sold much better. We didn't fail the PSP Vita. Sony and it's publishers did.
Blaž Perme (3 days ago)
Since when did PS Vita fail? In Japan it's currently more popular than xbox and selling great!

A hacked 1000 Vita it’s the best, you get all the PS1 and PSP tittles via Adrenaline, also the Retroarch native vita app it’s great.

I've own every psp model. From 1000 to Vita and I absolutely love every single one of them. I got the original 1000 on launch day and it was the coolest thing ever to me. Since then, I would go crazy for every new revision/ new model of the psp. Sony has created my favorite portable gaming devices ever. The psp GO model was also my favorite model from the psp series. And then the Vita came out and I played gravity rush and portable gaming became even more amazing for me. It's a shame the psp series and Vita failed. They are amazing consoles and I believe the Sony was way ahead of their time. The world wasn't ready yet for these kinds of systems. I feel if the vita was released today and just annoucned at this years E3, with slightly better specs than the original vita of course (to rival the switch at least) People would have gone crazy for it and it would of been a bigger success than what it was when it original came out. Also, if PlayStation had better support for their handhelds, especially the Vita, I don't think it would be a dead system today. I truly hope Sony returns to portable gaming in the futre.

Cesar Alvarez (3 days ago)
There's an accessory for the PSP Go which is a dock that allow you you connect the PSP Go to a TV and you can use the PS3 controller since the PSP Go has Bluetooth, so basically you have like a PS2/PS3 kinda experience. So a Switch before the Switch.
Jesus Perez (3 days ago)
The switch is more of a home console.

I still got my AQUA BLUE PSVITA it is Still Beautiful and Werks very well I love all the old games that I played there such FINAL FANTASY X, METAL GEAR SOLID HD, NINJA GAIDEN, DEAD OR ALIVE 5, ICONOLASTS I recently download that game is DAMN GOOD, and etc. I think Sony need to make NEW PS VITA 2 with big screen
sonicblast19 (3 days ago)
You can play PS4 wherever you are through Wi-Fi using your vita.. what a load of BS. The fucking thing can keep a stable connection 2 feet away from the PS4 even using direct connection.
Michael (3 days ago)
You can hook a PSPGo up to your TV with the right cables (component), and even sync your PS3 controller to it to essentially make a Switch almost 8 years before it came out. Also, the RPG library for PSPGo is pretty impressive. PGo is great.

I've always wanted a psp go ...it's Soo cool. I ended up getting the Vita and I'm glad I made that decision. It's alot bigger today than it was at release. Freaking love it and has many cool games (I mostly play RPGs). I plan on getting the switch after a year or so ...
Patrick Wilmes (3 days ago)
I have to disagree on the Go. I worked on psps for years. The design of the Go is awful. Everything is so cramped!
Ecks™ (3 days ago)
Just some corrections to your video for the Vita part the back was always referred at a touch pad not a touch screen and the model that you are holding on to has a LCD not the OLED screen like the first gens.

Hey, what 64 emulator did you use on the PSP Go? I couldn't get 64 games to work well with the PSP 3000. Is the go more powerful?
熊夢魔 (4 days ago)
I love my ps vita, I got it fairly recently.. perhaps a year or two? I knew it wasn’t popular but I have loved it omai. And I’ve never played the psp go but I do have a psp 1000 that was passed down to me from my dad. It has no analog stick but it’s still functioning and I still buy games for it even today. Jesus, This video is great! For once somebody said that the vita wasn’t popular without saying it dead. Imo a dead system would be something that has been forgotten and doesn’t have a functioning store or doesn’t receive updates for the console and well.. the thing is EXTREMELY popular in japan, it does have a functioning store still (unlike the psp, but you can still buy digital games for the psp from the ps3 store so it’s okay) and the system itself is receiving updates to this day! Also, new games are added more frequently than people think.

Rob Ash (4 days ago)
You should check out the GPD XD and GPD Win 2 for handhelds. The XD is great for nostalgia gaming and the Win 2 is a 3DS sized Windows 10 computer that can run alot of 7th gen games and even some brand new titles like RE7 and State of Decay 2. The downside is they are Niche machines and the win 2 is rather costly.

2:58 I hate when people make that "but smart phones" excuse, the 3DS was selling like hot cakes after they reduced the price and the Switch is booming right now. I'm not gonna waste the battery on my touch screen phone to play Fortnite when it's coming to the Switch (that also has it's own exclusives). Sony got greedy with their overpriced memory cards, gave up early on the Vita and focused on PS4.......that's it.
