PSP GO needs updated features

2 replies 122 views Edited Apr 14, 2011

Well the 3ds was just released with Netflix, w hy can't the psp go have it as well? i know there is a movie store whatever but who would pay $4 for 1 rent, you could get 4 movies out of redbox. The renting function on the psn is pretty outdated. Plus the psp go, is all about portability so netflix would only make sense.

Another nice feature would be a some type of book store, since there is digital comics.

The PSP in it's current embodiment is not secure.

The PSP Go doesn't have system software of its own.  It is the Same system that runs on all PSPs.  The question from Netflix's perspective is whether it makes sense to invest in a Netflix streaming client for the PSP, given that the PSP is approaching the end of its life-cycle, and has not fared particularly well as a portable video platform for five years. The 3DS is a brand new console that will be around for several years.  It is very likely that Netflix will be available for the NGP also, but I suspect that Netflix regards the PSP as a very low priority at this stage of the game.  Sure, Netflix almost certainly could create a client for the PSP.  The question is how many more Netflix subscriptions would that sell?  The PSP Go is not well-suited to be an e-reader from a design perspective.  Certainly, it isn't competitive with the Kindle, or the Nook.  Comics have relatively little text per page compared to books, and therefore are better suited to the PSP's screen orientation, resolution, and size. The PSP Go also has no 3G connectivity, which is pretty standard for portable e-readers at this point. Again, probably not worth the effort for Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or Google.  Apple is obviously not going to be interested.
