Three free games for new PSPgo users in North America
Thursday 03 June 2010
Sony has announced a number of incentives to boost sales of PSP games and systems in North America, with three free games going to purchasers of a PSPgo between June 2, 2010 and March 31, 2011.
The PSPgo's Digital Game Pack bundles three extra games with every handheld sold. LittleBigPlanet, Ratchet and Clank: Size Matters, and SOCOM: US Navy SEALs Fireteam Bravo 3 are the selected titles.
The company is also launching a $9.99 budget range of disc-based games for older PSP systems - presumably, price cuts will be reflected by the online PlayStation Network Store for those who prefer to buy digital and download.
Included in the new range are Buzz! Master Quiz, Loco Roco 2, Patapon 2, The Sims 2, Silent Hill: Origins and Pinball Hall of Fame: The Williams Collection.
The new initiatives act as counterpart to the '10 Free Games' promotion designed to push sales of the PSPgo in European regions.
While details of a successor or new entry to the PSP range are not expected at the Electronic Entertainment Expo conference, June 15-17, with Sony instead concentrating on the PlayStation 3 home console, competitor Nintendo is set to unveil the new Nintendo 3DS during a press event at 9am PST on June 15.
