It looks as if the end has indeed come for the PSPgo.
This morning reports emerged from Japan that production of the machine has been cancelled, and that no more stock will be supplied to the channel.
Now a UK retail source has told MCV that they have received word from their suppliers "that once current PSPgo stock is sold we will not be receiving replenishments".
The news comes despite an ambiguous response from Sony to this morning's claims.
"It is a very exciting time for PlayStation portable devices," a spokesperson told MCV. "Before the end of the year we are launching NGP, our next generation portable device, which we believe will revolutionise portable gaming.
"In the meantime, the current generation of PSPs continue to be in demand, especially since the introduction of our value for money, Essentials range of games and we will continue to meet that demand."
Requests for more concrete clarification remain unanswered.
