[Why Everyone Should Be Watching the PSPgo – PspGo – Kotaku]

Video games stored on a disc of plastic and tucked away in a case are approaching extinction.

You can quibble about the when and the how of this happening, but the inevitability of games being sold online like music, free of their plastic prisons, is certain.

With the price drop of the PSP-3000, I’m looking into the possibility of getting one but I can’t see to find games I’d want to play on that system. That aside, I have to agree with the article pointing out that having physical game discs may soon be a thing of the past.In the past year, I’ve started buying games online via Steam and more recently Direct2Drive. Love the convenience and bye-bye to broken / cracked / defaced / microwaved game discs.

What I don’t get is why they gotta make the PSP Go so small… it’s about the size of an iPhone from what I understand.
