Europe has been on the receiving end of great PSP Go game bundles since the device launched in October of last year, and they're only getting better, with Sony soon offering ten free big-name titles to Euro Go purchasers.
It seems like Sony has always pushed the PSP Go stronger in Europe than it has in North America. From giving Europeans a free copy of Gran Turismo at launch, to passing out three more free games in December, Europeans have always had more incentive to buy the newer handheld than we have in the states.
And now things are getting ridiculous.
According to MCV, Sony will soon launch a program in which folks who purchase the PSP Go over there will have their pick of 10 downloadable games. And not just PSP minis, either. We're talking Gran Turismo, LittleBigPlanet, and Grand Theft Auto titles.
SCE UK sales director Mark Howsen gave MCV the details.
"Next month we're launching a free ten game offer. And this isn't just older titles – we've worked with third parties and there's some really good core products. Any PSP Go purchased after April 1, 2010 will be eligible for the deal.
"We're using it as a method to drive the hardware as well by making the whole proposition much more appealing."
I say stick to your guns, Europe. As appealing as it may sound, it's still the PSP Go.
Now if they offered a PSP-2000 or 3000 with ten free games, I'd definitely jump on that. Hell, I'd even pay full PSP Go price.
Meanwhile, in North America, retailers are offering a special deal where if you buy a PSP Go, they won't laugh at you until after you leave the store.
