GamersConsoleNetwork scored a big scoop this morning, pulling the first images of the PSP Go (running LittleBigPlanet) out of the latest edition of Qore, which apparently went live early.
On top of that, someone managed to film the video and place it on YouTube. That’s below (bad audio)
In the video:
• Grand Turismo, LittleBigPlanet, Jak & Daxter and Metal Gear are all either confirmed or mentioned.
• The Go’s 16 gigs of flash memory and bluetooth support (“You can also tether it to your cell phone,”) are touted.
• In discussing the PSP Go’s video-playing capability, it sounds like the rental service through PSN will extend to the PSP Go.
• PSP Go will not replace the PSP-3000; the 3000 will still be kept on the market.
So, there’s your garden-variety pre-E3 leak/rumor/big splash. Just the facts for now. Thanks to the dozens of tipsters who saw this and alerted us.

SasaharaX: what kind of sucks on this is that Uncharted is not on there (But E3 is just around the corner so it could be announced there), and Gran Turismo 5: Prologue should be 19.99 since it was originally 39.99.
Namco Bandai and tri-Crescendo’s role-playing game Fragile is coming to North American Wiis later this year, thanks to publisher XSEED. If you were a fan of Baten Kaitos or Eternal Sonata, this one’s for you.
According to IGN, XSEED has picked up Namco Bandai of America’s publishing slack, with Fragile: Farewell Ruins of the Moon arriving sometime this Winter. The game, which features the adventures of a boy name Seto in a post-apocalyptic world devoid of light, makes extensive use of the Wii remote, which acts as a flashlight and metal detector in-game.
The game seems to have been well received by Japanese critics and sold well, but not extremely well, when it debuted in Japan. The game looks spooky, the hair spiky, so we’d recommend JRPG fans check out more about Fragile.
