London, UK (PRWEB) October 2, 2009 -- With a noticeable lack of third party support by games developers, "PSP Go!" hopes gamers will embrace digital distribution instead of traditional exposure gained from having games in shops. One online shop reverted their decision to boycott stocking the console due to its digital download content only limitation. At Game Stock a decision was taken to give the PSP Go! a go. The PSP Go! console is out to pre-order now for release on 2nd Oct 2009, Game Stock has put together a page about the new console and how it compares to its predecessors.
The only place to buy "Sony PSP Go!" console games is going to be on Sony's PSN. Once downloaded it is believed the games can re-downloaded time and again as and when required, in cases of changing a console and memory perhaps. The most beneficial aspect gamers want is the ability in trade in old for new at their favourite game shop - but no confirmation has been announced to date. Meaning digital content is likely to be locked to your PSN user ID. From a copy protection viewpoint it would be completely acceptable, to create similar EULAs for content, but for games this is a new concept. On the one hand Sony can control the monopoly of Go media on the other it could easily be integrated at retailers on the high street and online by simple asset management transferring digital license ownership to lock and unlock media. "We look forward to the possibility of comparing digital media download prices", as much as game consoles.
Typically games players engage in conversation about pre-ordering and the joy of a product being physically delivered to their door. Similarly engaging in conversation about trading in games where to get the best bundle, deal and price is something that will be foreign in PSP Go community. Elite members with no physical game collection. Kudos will be given to those owning both the PSP 3000 Slim and PSP Go. Meanwhile the PSP 3000 is to remain on sale during the testy transition into the digital download market.
A brief look at the competition spotlight focuses towards two other main contenders for on-demand gaming. Apple iPhone and DS I: Both have similar handheld consoles which allow on demand software accessibility via WiFi, open 24/7 for download. GameStock.co.uk/iPad lets you have the best of both.
