PSPgo’es Perfect with a Dualshock 3

October 1, 2009Written by Anthony Severino


The PSPgo, which has been officially launched as of today, has spurred many of mixed reactions since its debut on the stage of Sony’s 2009 E3 Press Conference. The premium $249.99 price, along with the lack of the UMD drive were among the biggest concerns. Now, with the massive list of launch titles for the PSPgo, and the tethering feature that arrived with last night’s firmware 6.10 update, comes another great feature that is sure to help wash away any concerns you may have about purchasing the PSPgo.

The PSPgo features built-in bluetooth tech which can pair with various other bluetooth enabled devices, such as a wireless phone, or a bluetooth headset. If you own a PS3 you may know of its bluetooth functionality extends to its Dualshock 3 controllers which are also bluetooth enabled. Because of this, the PSPgo can “pair” with a Dualshock 3 and use it to control the PSPgo.

The video below shows how this functionality works, but can be taken even further than demonstrated. Taking this feature to the next level, you could connect your PSPgo to your HDTV via a component cable, making the PSPgo a makeshift home console.
