Sony to Give Free PSP Games To PSPgo Upgraders… in Europe

pspgoWe’ve been talking a lot about the PSPgo here at The Flickcast, both comparing it to the earlier PSP models and discussing problems with its impending release. The biggest issue the PSPgo is facing is the removal of the UMD drive. Because the PSPgo doesn’t allow for the use of UMDs, if you already own PSP games you won’t be able to play them on your new console just yet.

Fans are wary about running out and buy a brand new device without the ability to play the extensive collection of games they already have for it, and retailers in some countries are even refusing to carry the device, citing that they don’t agree with Sony’s download-only sales strategy.

However, Kotaku reports that Sony’s got a solution to this problem… in Europe. Anyone upgrading from the PSP to the PSPgo will recieve three free PSP titles. Seventeen titles are being offered, including Killzone: Liberation, SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Fireteam Bravo 3, WipEout Pure, echochrome, LocoRoco, and Papaton. In order to get your three free games, you’ll need any UMD, an older PSP, and an internet connection to access the Playstation Network.

This solution is certainly better than rebuying all your old PSP games, but for gamers with far more than three PSP games are sure to still feel frustrated. You’ll be able to receive your three free games  from October 1, 2009 to March 31, 2010 in European territories. The PSPgo hits shelves October 1st in the US, and we here at The Flickcast hope that Sony will bring this option to us here in America as well.

    The PSP Video Games means Play Station Portable Video Games. These games come in a mini disc. The PSP console is small and handy like an i-phone. Therefore the PSP Video Games come only in mini discs. These games are much more costly due to this reason. Another specialty of the PSP Video Games is that it cannot be copied. This prevents from the game piracy.

    All the games that are available to be played on computers and PS series are also available as PSP Video Games. The PSP console was developed for the gamers who could not spend time at home to sit and play on the computer or the PS console. The PSP is just the size of an i-phone and can be carried anywhere along with us. It also provides excellent gaming experience though it is small. It also has additional features such as photo viewer, video player, music player, internet browser, etc.

    The cost of the PSP console as well as the PSP Video Games is very high and expensive. Due to the high cost of the console and the games, the PSP Video Games are not a very big hit among people in India. Whereas in other parts of the world, at least 8 out of 10 people would be owning a PSP console. The best feature of the PSP console is the headset adaptability, which gives the gamers a true gaming experience. Thus PSP games compensates its cost.
