A blog post purported to be from a Japanese Sony Shop employee has suggested that Sony has finally cancelled the long-suffering PSP Go handheld. Previously outed as a "failed experiment" into digital distribution methods, the controversial console has apparently been shelved and is currently unavailable to purchase in most regions.

Sony failed to confirm or deny the rumour to Eurogamer, and delivered some trite marketing garbage instead,
It is a very exciting time for PlayStation portable devices. 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.
We'll keep an eye on the situation, but if it turns out to be true, I don't think I'll lose too much sleep over the loss of the PSP Go. Will you miss it?
