PSP Go can play most games that You could previously play on Sony PSP, PSP2000 and PSP3000 consoles, but with one bi gdifference - all of them have to be downloaded and stored in the PSP Go internal 32GB memory or Mmeory Stick, as there is no UMD disk reader in the PSPgo it can no longer use UMD discs that were purchased for older version PSPa. With a hacked Go you can emulate every Nintendo home console to date, starting with the NES and SNES to GameBoy ROM Search Engine and N64 and that's not all: they're also including emulation for the Sega Genesis and Turbo GraFX (PC Engine). •
Nintendo has been pushing their new controller for this system quite a bit. The logo does resembles the dpad of the new system which happens to be the standard pad. Its also a shape already associated with nintendo, its just so familiar.The 5th system being go would be almost a tribute to themselves. Like We've made it this far, showing off their long standing in the game industry.
"go" = 5 in japanese.
There has been a lot of chatter on the internet about the Nintendo PSP go’s name. If you are confused, you’re not alone. There were many rumors that the PSP go would change names at the GDC. However, Iwata did not mention anything about a name change during his keynote speech on Thursday.
The morning of the speech, a rumor was released which indicated that the Nintendo PSP go would be renamed Nintendo Go. This rumor made sense because “Go” means 5 in Japanese and the PSP go is the 5th console in Nintendo’s lineup. Yet, as mentioned above, Nintendo’s president did not mention a name change.
Nevertheless, IGN had a chance to grab an interview with Nintendo of America’s Beth Llewelyn. She pretty much confirmed that the Nintendo PSP go was simply a code name and that it would change. Mrs. Llewelyn did not divulge when the name would be changed, but it seemed as if it would be revealed at this year’s E3.
Here is an excerpt from the interview that indicates a name change:IGN: Is PSPgo the final name of your new system?
Beth: No, it's not.
IGN: So it's definitely a codename?
Beth: It's a codename.
IGN: And it's going to change?
Beth: It is going to change.
IGN: Great. When are you going to reveal the final name?
Beth: Well, you're going to have to wait and see.
IGN: E3? ROM Search Engine
Beth: Not quite sure yet.
IGN: Somehow we think that's a lie.
So there we have it. We might only have a few more months with the codename PSPgo. There were no indications to what the name will be so we will have to wait and see. We will keep you up to date if any more information concerning this matter is released.

IGN: So, SEGA Genesis and TurboGrafx games on PSPgo's Virtual Console ROM Search Engine. That makes us happy. Does this mean all SEGA and TurboGrafx games will come over?
Beth: Not necessarily exclusive, but we're just excited to have that content on the PSPgo.
IGN: And when you speak about SEGA and Hudson, does this announcement mean that just titles published by those companies on Genesis and TurboGrafx may come to PSP go?
Beth: It could be beyond that. But obviously that would be a discussion between publishers and SEGA.
IGN: Are any other deals like this in the works?
Beth: Obviously we want to make a very robust library for the Virtual Console, so there may be other announcements down the road.
IGN: What would you say to people who are afraid that PSP go will have poor third party support?
Beth: I would say they shouldn't be afraid. There will be plenty of third party support for PSP go. We're talking to a lot of developers and a lot of publishers and everybody is very excited, especially once they start playing with the controller and see what it can do. So, I think for gamers out there and even non-gamers who we're trying to reach as well, there will certainly be a robust library for PSP go - more than just Nintendo titles. Absolutely.

In 1989, Sega released its most successful console worldwide, the Sega Mega Drive also known as Sega Genesis in North America. The Genesis was a 16-bit console created to rival the TurboGrafx 16. In 1990, Nintendo released the Super Famicom (or Super Nintendo Entertainment System—SNES), which was Genesis' major rival throughout the 16-bit era. Even though the Genesis was released earlier than the SNES, ROM Search Engine Sega had a hard time overcoming Nintendo's dominating foothold on the video game console market, which in the late-1980s was 95% in North America and 92% in Japan. By 1992, Sega slashed Nintendo's market by garnering 55% (going as high as 65% in 1993) of the market in North America. The Genesis also did well in Brazil, Europe, and Australia, however, it failed to put a dent on Nintendo's market share in Japan.

In 1993, the Genesis was redesigned and released as the "Sega Genesis 2". By 1994, Nintendo had regained a lot of its lost market share by slashing Sega's share from 65% to 35%. In 1996, Sega discontinued support for the Genesis. But in 1998, Majesco released a budget version of the Genesis, called "Sega Genesis 3".
Throughout the lifetime of the Genesis, Sega had developed and launched two unsuccesful well-known add-ons, the Sega 32X and the Sega CD. It also released the peripheral, Sega Meganet, which was a modem for the Mega drive ROM Search Engine. It was only released in Japan and Brazil.
