The PSP Go! is indeed a sexy – albeit expensive – little piece of hardware. And while it may be a desirable item, it also alienates the most loyal PSP user. Well, fret not, my cramped-hand companions.
Those of you have amassed a stack of UMD games, but also intensely lust after Sony’s sleek new Mylo 2 PSP Go! should be happy to know that there are plans in place to accommodate you. What’s more, it should be both free (hooray!) and available before the PSP Go! ships (Huzzah!)
According to Sony’s John Koller, Director of Hardware Marketing, â€œWe’re in the midst of putting together a good will program. We’ll be unveiling that soon [because] we actually think there’s a significant group that will be upgrading from the 1000…In the past, we’ve seen a 20-25% trade-up factor, and I assume that’s going to be the case here. We’ve modeled that. So we’re looking at a good-will programâ€”a short term good-will program that would continue for years afterward.”
Whether this program will be one that utilises the PSN as a method to digitally download games, or some sort of in-store kiosk that’ll allow you to rip your games has yet to be seen, but it’s nice to know that Sony’s thinking of you. And touching itself.
