PSP Go Slated To Release With 225 Downloadable Games
The PSP Go is an all-digital, miniaturized gaming and media wonder that is bound to appeal to all you gadget and portable junkies. But you may not yet have all the awesome details...
The launch numbers are actually downright staggering: upon its October 1 launch - despite the lack of a UMD-to-Digital conversion program - there will be 16,000 pieces of digital content available, and that includes 225 downloadable titles (featuring all PSP games, UMD legacy titles and Minis), 2,300 movies, and 13,300 TV episodes. Some of the top handheld experiences you won't want to miss are God of War: Chains of Olympus and Gran Turismo PSP. If you need another option for nabbing content off the PSN, you should be able to pick up PlayStation Network Game Cards at your local retailer; these are voucher codes that will let new PSP Go owners download full titles. In this fashion, you can add the likes of Patapon 2, Twisted Metal: Head-On, and Secret Agent Clank (among others) to your new library. So even though you won't be able to immediately transfer your UMD collection to this new PSP iteration, you'll certainly have plenty to do and see. Perhaps this amount of content makes the relatively steep $250 price tag a bit more agreeable...? Some may see it this way.
We'll certainly be interested in seeing how the PSP Go fares during the upcoming holiday rush, and with plenty of stuff populating the PSN, that should be the primary appeal right off the bat.
