Jimquisition: Don't Charge Retail Prices For Digital

The $60 pricing model is broken in the retail space, and that's a scientific fact that can be proven with science. It's truly staggering, then, that publishers are attempting to apply that awful model to the digital space, w...

PlayStation Move dock for PSP Go? Why?

What a strange combination! A patent fro 2009 from Sony gives an illustration for a dock for a PSP Go. This isn't just some charging dock, though. This dock contains a camera that works like the PlayStation Eye, and would det...

Sony to offer two free games to PSN members due to outage photo
Sony to offer two free games to PSN members due to outage
by Jim Sterling

Sony has announced that it will be offering two free games -- from an unspecified choice of five -- to PlayStation Network members as part of its apology for the infamous PSN breach. PSP users will also have two games, from a list of four. 

In addition, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe is looking at a way to offer some identity theft insurance for its users, following the announcement that Sony America would be doing so. According to SCEE's Nick Caplin, the process has been difficult due to countries within Europe having all sorts of different laws. The company hopes to have all PSN users in Europe protected before the PSN comes back. 

The free game offering is pretty cool, but I still remember the sour taste Microsoft left when it gave Undertow away. Here's hoping that the likes of Rag Doll Kung Fu aren't on the list.

Sony shop employee gossips on PSPgo's demise

It's no secret that the PSPgo was a bloody awful thing. Though the intent was admirable, the delivery was a failure, with expensive hardware, expensive games, and simply less support than previous PSP models. Apparently, the ...

Sony drops PSPgo price to $150, gamers shrug photo
Sony drops PSPgo price to $150, gamers shrug
by Dale North

Back when the PSPgo came out it felt like I was the only one excited about it. It was small and sexy. It sold...some. At $250 for what really was a lesser game system that what it was supposed to stand in for, the PSPgo was a bit hard to swallow. Then, before last Christmas, probably because it wasn't selling, Sony dropped the price to $199. I know that helped a bit, but still, the cheaper PSP-3000 was lighter and had a freakin' UMD slot.

Don't tell anyone, but I sold my PSPgo on eBay. I realized I was carrying around my PSP-3000 everywhere, all the time. Never the PSPgo. Sony would cry if they knew.

Now Sony drops the price again, probably in an effort to get these things out the door before the NGP hits. It's now $149, which is where they probably should have started at in the first place. This could help clear out stock, but it probably won't. Why? The PSP-3000 is now $129. It's still a better system at a better price.

Here in Japan, where everyone and their mom carries a game system on their person, I almost never see a PSPgo. You trip over people with a standard PSP, but the PSPgo is still rare.

PSPgo hacked, can run Lumines now

Most sane people now admit that the PSPgo was a stupid idea, not least for the fact that it cost more than a regular PSP, but could play less games. If a certain PSP game, like Lumines, isn't on the PlayStation Network, then ...
