PSPgo out today! [Update]

pspgo58010Didn’t you know? The PSPgo, Sony’s latest version of its portable hardware is launched globally today. The console is available from £224.99 in all good retailers and online, and for that you’ll get the sleek and sexy PSPgo and some free downloads from PSN to start your digital gaming lives. Act quickly enough and you can also pick up Gran Turismo for free before 10 October. In all there should be more than 200 games available to download to your PSPgo today.

To coincide with the launch of the new handheld, Sony has also released the PSP 6.10 update. This adds the new SensMe feature that can generate playlists of songs stored on your PSP based on predetermined mood settings. The update also enables you to use the PSPgo’s bluetooth to link it with a mobile phone, turning it into a makeshift network for accessing the internet without a wireless connection nearby.

Media Go for PC is also available today so you can download PSP content without using a PS3. Download, sign up and hook up your PSP to start downloading software via your PC. As for games, we’re waiting on Sony to confirm the line-up for the PSN store update today. Hopefully we’ll see plenty of titles being added and we’ll return later to recommend the best of the bunch once that happens.

Sony is offering upgraders from the old PSPs to the PSPgo their choice of three free games from a list of 16, which include Killzone: Liberation, SOCOM U.S. Navy SEALs: Fireteam Bravo 3, WipEout Pure, echochrome, Buzz!: Brain Bender, LocoRoco and Patapon. Sony has also revealed its PSP Minis lineup for the PSPgo launch. Here’s what Sony said about them:
