PXP-2000 PSP Go knockoff still forgets the 2nd joystick

PXP-2000 PSP Go knockoff still forgets the 2nd joystick

Knock-off consoles are always good for a cheap, moderately cheerful laugh, and so we're surprised its taken the Chinese cloners this long to come up with a decent PSP Go copy.  The PXP-2000 "borrows" the distinctive stylings of Sony's latest handheld, but throws in a camera good for stills and 3GP video capture, an FM radio and NES/Famicom emulator.

Sony’s PSP “minis” download games for the upcoming PSP Go are already prompting confusion, not least because of the company’s own guidelines for developers hoping to fast-track their submissions.  Sony has revealed its policies for PlayStation Network approval, including details on the “accelerated approvals process”; unfortunately, for titles to qualify for that process they must be single-player, have no network or downloadable content, and no peripheral support.

PSPgo a no go for Dutch retailer

PSPgo a no go for Dutch retailer

The first time I heard about the PSP Go, I wondered if most of us were ready for a dedicated game system that lacks a physical software format. Sure, that is basically what the iPhone and iPod touch are, but I don't really think of those devices and the PSP Go as being in the same category.
