A new entry into the portable video game market was announced at E3 Expo 2009 in the form of the new Sony PSP Go.
The Sony PSP Go is not technically a successor to the existing PlayStation Portable (PSP) portable game console.
While it may be tempting to do so, the PSP Go should not be considered a true PSP2.
It is meant to be a minor update or alternative to the current PSP.

This gives the PSP Go a smaller footprint, making it easier to fit into pockets.

Since the PSP Go does not have a UMD drive like its larger PSP cousin, the question arises as to how (and if) the user will be able to play UMD-based games like Lumines.
