I figured that this would be an appropriate article to put up following the news about the DS download stations at the Atlanta airport.
According to IGN, PSP gamers in the US can expect to shortly be able to download their own content via kiosks… not at airports, but at several popular retailers – including Circuit City, Toys “R” Us, Target and GameStop. PSP fans in both Europe and Japan have been able to take advantage of this sort of download system for quite a while now… it’s about time that it migrated overseas!
Beginning this month [November 2006], consumers can take their PSP system to participating retailers, and download gaming and entertainment content directly to their PSP system. These interactive kiosks will offer game demos, movie trailers, music clips, mini-strategy guides, wallpapers and more.
Sony has announced that the first line of games that will be available for download will consist of Outrun, Worms, Dungeon Siege, MLB 2006, Ultimate Ghosts and Goblins, Lumines 2, Every Extend Extra, Race Driver 2006, and Daxter.
Plans are in effect to have the program expanded to 6,000 retail locations across the US by January 2007.[via IGN]
