PSP Go pulled to pieces

Man tears apart Sony's latest handheld

Intelligent flash storage arrays

The PlayStation Portable Go won’t be available in Blighty for several weeks yet, but images of a dismantled model have already appeared online.

Images of Sony's PSP Go from the inside reveal its embedded battery

Gadget teardowns are nothing new, but what makes these shots of the PSP Go’s innards so interesting is that it’s the first model in the PSP series to lack a UMD drive – resulting in a smaller and slightly lighter machine.

The images also reveal the PSP Go’s embedded battery. Its predecessor, the PSP-3000, had a removable power pack.

A look behind the PSP Go's front case

Sony appears to have littered the Go’s innards with what look like tamper-revealing patches – small white squares emblazoned with red dots. Manufacturers sometimes stick these inside gadgets to catch out would-be warranty exploiters trying to, say, bag a replacement machine after they dropped theirs into the bath.

Is that an anti-tamper spot we spy?

The PSP Go teardown images come just hours after iFixit unveiled a step-by-step guide to the PS3 Slim – from the inside.

The PSP Go will be available in the UK from 2 October, priced at £230/$250. ®
