GamesCom 2009: GT PSP Free With Early PSP Go Purchase
Before y'all get excited, this information has only been confirmed for European territories, and we don't yet know if any of this applies to North America.
As announced during Sony's GamesCom press conference, it appears European gamers will soon be getting the option of Turquoise Green, Blossom Pink, and Lilac Purple PSP-3000 units; each will likely come bundled with a game. For example, we know the Turquoise one will come with LittleBigPlanet PSP, and that's an awesome deal! Our host, SCEE's Andrew House, explained that more bundles would be on the way, and then added the best news yet: if you register your sleek new PSP Go between October 1 and October 10, you will receive a free copy of Gran Turismo PSP! It'll be in digital download form, of course - it's all about digital downloads with the new PSP - and it's fantastic incentive to snag Sony's new handheld iteration early. Essentially, this means that if you're willing to pony up the cash in the first 10 days of availability, you'll get one of the unit's most anticipated titles for free. This is the type of promotion we'd love to see for the PlayStation 3 but for now, we're just hoping this GT PSP deal comes to the US...
We'll let you know but even if it doesn't, you can bet Sony will have some sort of PSP Go incentive promotion for North American gamers. People want as much bang as humanly possible for their buck!
