PSP Go playable when closed?

The people over at Joystiq had a question about the upcoming PSP Go – will you be able to play it when it’s closed? The short answer is “kinda.” A representative from Sony said that if there are ever titles released using only the Go’s L/R shoulder buttons (none have been announced yet) “users will be able to play those games with the PSP Go in closed mode.” The rep added that Go owners will be able to use applications and get to content like music and Skype, but they’ll have to lauch the software first, while the PSP Go is open. Go owners will have a few applications that they can access without opening their Gos, however. These include “original applications” like the calendar and clock. So there you have it – yeah, you can use it when its closed… but you’ve got to open it first.
