SCEE Reveals PSP Go! View Bundle
The rumors continue to swirl concerning Sony's new handheld, currently believed to be the PSP Go!. However, there's another iteration of the PSP with the same title, and it's attached to a special bundle package for Europe.
As revealed by Electronic Theatre, SCEE has chosen an interesting time to lift the lid on the PSP Go! View Entertainment Pack. The Go! View software allows you to "watch sports, movies and TV shows on your PSP," and this can range from simple comedies to the biggest blockbuster movies. Basically, you're looking at an on-demand TV service for a portable unit, and that's pretty damn nifty. Now, you can purchase the retail box of Go! View separately; it features a 4GB Memory Stick, Mini USB Cable and two month's free subscription to the Go! View service. You can nab this for £29.99, or if you'd rather go for the full PSP bundle, it'll include the PSP-3000, a 2GB Memory Stick, USB cable and the two months of free service for the price of £149.99. Apparently, both items are now available on store shelves in the UK, so if you're in the region, we suggest scanning about and and seeing what you can find. For those of you who don't yet own a PSP, this new software could be just the right incentive to coerce you into a purchase; who doesn't want on-demand TV while on the "go?" (pun intended) It's just too cool.
We'll let you know if SCEA announces this bundle for North America, but for now, the PSP Go! View Entertainment Pack appears limited to either the UK or European territories.
