With the launch of the PSP Go looming so close, those who will upgrade to the new handheld will have the option to get this PSP Go Converter, which will allow you to use your old PSP accessories with the PSP Go. Sony wouldn't want you to wind up with a bunch of unusable accessories, y'know, although they're not doing a thing about the unusable UMDs.
Further on the subject of unusable accessories, the move to upgrade to the PSP Go seems more and more like a really impractical idea. There's the cost of the handset, you won't be able to play your old PSP games on it, neither will you be able to use you old accessories. This PSP Go Converter may solve the problem, but you'd be paying US$ 20 to use accessories that work perfectly fine with your old PSP.
On a more positive note, if you're indeed going to get a PSP Go, paying US$ 20 to be able to use multiple accessories may sound cheaper instead of having to get multiple new ones for the Go, provided that you have a lot of the old PSP accessories that is. Still, there will be plenty of coughing up when you make the upgrade..
This converter, however, does take a lot out of the PSP Go's portability, not to mention looks. Not only will the PSP Go be significantly wider when wearing it, it'll also make your new toy look like a small dinner plate.
No word on release just yet.
