Japanese site AV Watch has received a statement from Sony that the company is now focusing production on their upcoming NGP handheld and will sell out of its current PSP Go stock and no longer manufacture the portable console which launched less than 2 years ago.
People that still have the older PSP-3000 model should not fear, Sony will keep on supporting & manufacturing it, "It will continue to be sold, and we will keep focusing our attention on it from here on out," said the company.
To help you start filling up just some of that storage space, Sony is pleased to announce the arrival of “minis”, a new category of bite-sized, snackable entertainment that offers easy access into the world of PSP. Created by innovative developers from all over the world, the “minis” category includes a wide range of titles, from arcade racers to games that simply defy categorisation. Available exclusively from PlayStation Store, “minis” will have a 100MB size limit, ensuring they are quick and easy to download. And, with initial releases priced between €2.99 and €4.99, “minis” offer a simple entry into the world of PSP, at price points that are easy on the wallet.
