Guess what! PSPgo Rewards scheme is not for Americans

Sep 25 // Jim Sterling    @JimSterling

You remember yesterday when we announced that Sony had introduced one not-quite-awful idea for the PSPgo? Well, this is Sony we're talking about, so I guess I was naive to think it would last. The PSPgo Rewards scheme, where PSP upgraders can download three free games, is for Europe only. That's right, North American users will NOT get free games.

This is amazing. PSPgo Rewards was perhaps the only PR move Sony had done right since this disaster was announced, and they've managed to stuff even that up. While Europeans get Gran Turismo and three free games as a reward for, we North American consumers are expected to happily "upgrade" our machines with absolutely no incentive whatsoever. 

"We have a dual platform strategy," bullsh*tted a Sony spokesman. "PSPgo is the latest offering in our portable entertainment products targeted for the digitally savvy and early adopters who are looking for an easy way to experience entertainment and a wide variety of digital content."

Sony: You have f*cked this up, like you f*ck nearly everything up. Well done. I think I'll release my own PSP model. It'll basically be a piece of sh*t in a matchbox, bundled with a free dead bumblebee. I guarantee that, at $300, it'll be fifteen times more valuable than the PSPgo.

Why is Sony afraid of looking at least quasi-competent? This is pathetic.
