Just wanted to know if any one had more details on this product, the reason being I recently
checked Amazon UK and its says it coming out on April the 25th at
only £25.99, is that the whole GPS system with the maps, unfortunately Amazon
list zero details, but shopto has it coming out on the same date and that says
it includes everything! If this is everything then its got to be one of the
cheapest GPS system I have ever seen! Is there a review any where or going to
be a review of the system for the uk version as I would like to know how update/good
the maps are, weather it will work with the older bigger PSP etc. I would really like this system, specially if its going to be
this cheap! Just need more information. Come on Sony, tells us where to go!

HMV have better details on the Go!Explore GPS system, that's were I've pre-ordered mine from.

Thanks for the info.

 

Did a bit more research and finally found a good review of the product.

 

looks very good, hope Sony do make updates to it. Review is on http://www.money-specialist.com/?p=142 

 

Just notice also that Amazon has up the price to £89.99 since I posted this message, odd that. :)

You're right... Amazon HAS increased the price A LOT!!! hmv has not... yet! :)

Anyway, it might be an amazon mistake. I doubt it will stay at that price with all other retailers at +-25£ ...

Don't know what the hells going on but Amazon has now pulled the price details from the site same as Play.com. HMV still holding at £27.99 (that's where I've ordered from). Thing is if it comes out next week why can't you pre-order on these sites? Amazon are usually desperate to get their mitts on your cash. Something funny going on me thinks.

In that case I would guess HMV would not allow you to preorder at 27£ , if it is really just a guess!

Well I ordered mine now from HMV, before the price goes up. As I understand it HMV have a Pre-Order Price Guarantee, which i will be quoting if they up the price now.

Not sure if it would stick, mate. I also thought the same but looking around on their site I found this on the pricing and payment page in Help:-

 

Your account will not be debited until your order has been despatched at which point our acceptance of your order takes place.

 

So I suppose they could wriggle out of it. Hope not though. Mind you, it wouldn't be the first time they've screwed me with something like this. So if it doesn't come through then HMV will be joining my boycott list.

"Your account will not be debited until your order has been despatched at which point our acceptance of your order takes place."

 

This does not mean they will up the price you have ordered your item at, more that HMV have the right to cancel the order if they want to. I have actually printed my order and there is no statement that the price will change! 

 

Fingers crossed it will all go through smoothly at the price stated?

I really want to get this next week, been looking forward to it for ages.

But my gut feeling is that something isn't quite right and I think we'll find HMV and any other site saying it's release date is 25 April will change their tune on release day (or just before) - there has been no marketing push at all for release day from Sony. I know Sony mess up sometimes, but that would really be incompetence on a major level if a product wasn't being punted around the PSP news sites, Sony's own press site, and also in magazines, etc. There has been nothing for weeks on IGN, Pocket Gamer or GameSpy, three fairly up-to-date and big sites.

It seems as though amazon have taken off the pricing, gone the same way as play.com? HMV is the only place where you can actually pre-order it now at £27.99.

Thats not true ShopTo.com has it listed

http://www.shopto.net/page.php?page=dettagli&codart=PSPGO10&n=Go%20!%20Explore&p=PSP at £29.99

 

Did a bit more digging and found Sony orginal Press Release for the Europe launch of Go!explore which has more pictures and info

http://www.scee.presscentre.com/Content/Detail.asp?ReleaseID=4487&NewsAreaID=2

 

The interesting/worring part is this

 

"The three ways to buy Go!Explore for PSP:

 

  • GPS receiver and UMD (including maps of the relevant country): RRP €119 (around £90)
  • GPS receiver, UMD (including maps), Car Adaptor and Car Mount: RRP €149 (around £120)
  • PSP, GPS receiver, UMD (including maps), Car Adaptor and Car Mount: RRP €299" (around £240)

 

And I checked Amazon.fr (french site) they have it listed at €119

http://www.amazon.fr/GPS-PSP-%2B-Go-Explore/dp/B0013CY21M/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=videogames&qid=120862...

 

So the question is why has HMV, Shopto and previously Play and Amazon thought they could sell it under £30 and why they think its out
next week, when there has been no word from Sony.
