PSP Go Launches with Proprietary Accessories

featureimage-psp-go-images1Making vast improvements on the hardware and even offering digital copies in exchange for your UMDs, the PSPgo does seem to be worth the $250 price point. However, those looking to upgrade from their previous PSP units will want to take note of this.

The downside? Similar to most mainstream products, a common practice being used by the PSP Go is proprietary accessories, forcing the consumers to purchase a new set of accessories for the handheld. The PSP Go uses a multifunction port, and because of this, consumers will have to buy all new chargers, component, composite, and USB cables. While the former is to be expected, the latter is a potential nuisance to consumers who have multiple mini-USB cables.
