PSP downloads service mooted...
10:34 Further credence to last week's story about Sony's plans to conquer your living room, comes in the form of a report in Marketing Week, which says that Sony is preparing a music and software download service for the PSP which will launch later this summer.
The service, which would seem to be a direct competitor to Apple's iTunes would probably begin with music and software downloads, but could eventually go on to encompass movies and all manner of multi-media content.
When contacted a spokesperson for Sony Computer Entertainment Europe had the following to say: "People do get rather excited and from our perspective it's certainly something that we might look at in the future, but right now we don't have any further details and we haven't haven't even announced launch or pricing for the PSP in Europe yet."
"One of our games, specifically WipeOut will certainly feature downloadables; with extra tracks and music to customise players' games, but our focus at [the PSP's] launch will be on the games - multimedia will come later."
So the official word would seem to be games first, music and movies later. However Sony is undoubtedly ready to take on all comers in the race to supply all your gaming, music, movie and entertainment needs. More on this as we have it.
