PSPgo Rewards scheme screwed over by DRM restrictions

0

I want to submit the word "Sonying" as a new English language word. Sonying is the act of having good ideas and then sabotaging them personally so that they don't work. The latest scheme to be Sonied is the European PSPgo Rewards plan -- where PSPgo upgraders can register a UMD online and download up to three free games. Guess what: It doesn't work properly.

DRM is the root cause of the problem, where customers who download the games via a PS3 to transfer onto the PSPgo find that they are locked out of playing them. European users are reporting that if they don't download the games directly onto the PSPgo, then Sony's software prevents that game from working, essentially meaning that consumers have downloaded a waste of hard drive space.

At the time of writing, Sony has no fix for this issue, but with mounting complaints from irritated PSPgo users, it's an issue that Sony will have to address eventually. To quote our tipster Gary, "This is yet another balls-up in an otherwise shambolic launch."

PSPgo Rewards scheme, you can consider yourself thoroughly Sonied.
