As the new evolution of PSP handheld entertainment system, specifically designed to suit the digital lifestyle of consumers who enjoy downloadable content on the go, PSP®go made its debut on November 1, 2009.
SCEJ along with third party developers and publishers continues to enhance the content line-up within PlayStation®Store, and more than 590 titles of games, 1,250 titles (4,490 episodes) of movies, 2,200 episodes of comics are available for download as of the end of September, 2010. This broad content offering across all genres includes games, free-demos, PS one® classics for PSP, add-on items for game titles, trailers and comics.
Users can download a digital entertainment content accessing PlayStation®Store directly from PSP®go using the built-in wireless LAN (Wi-Fi) feature or through PS3. Media Go will also enable users to access and download entertainment content on PlayStation®Store via their PCs as well to easily manage PSP content on PCs, including games, videos, photos, and music.
In February 2010, it was reported that Sony might re-launch the PSP Go due to the lack of consumer interest and poor sales. In June 2010, Sony began bundling the console with 10 free downloadable games; the same offer was made available in Australia in July. Three free games for the PSP Go were offered in America. In October that year, Sony announced it would reduce the price of the unit. On April 20, 2011, the manufacturer announced that the PSP Go would be discontinued outside of North America so it could concentrate on the PlayStation Vita.
"The intuitive Autoflow feature allows you to zoom in and move from frame to frame on each digital page, mimicking the way your eyes would move across a print page from left to right. It's straightforward and simple to use, and thanks to PSP's high contrast LCD screen, your comics will be looking better than ever as the stunning graphics leap out from the screen."

A comic reader that let you purchase comics from PlayStation Network and read them right on your PSP device. The network was shut down and the reader download removed, but if you backed up any of your comics you can read them again.
To mitigate the notable lack of crowd-pleasers, Sony pulled out all the stops for the remaining 10 months of 2012. By the end of the year, the Vita gained support for the well-regarded PlayStation Plus subscription service. For $50 a year, Vita owners could download select games for free every month, with the one caveat that, should they cancel their subscriptions, access to those titles would be rescinded.
A system bundle, which included a whole year of the service along with a 4GB memory card, came out at a time when its heaviest hitters could be downloaded for free using the PlayStation Plus Instant Game Collection incentive. But by then smart phone games were evolving, Vita's reputation had been - fairly or unfairly - tarnished as something with no viable games to play, and Sony was slow to unlock its heritage of PlayStation games to help stem the bleeding. PS5 take note - while new games are pricey to produce, Sony already has a raft of older titles to lean on when that lull inevitably comes along in between PS5's launch and its second wave.
Though technically still in Beta (several years after being announced), CD Projekt Red has stated that Gwent: The Witcher Card Game will be free to all throughout its lifetime, and it's worth downloading now regardless of that early access status. The unexpected spin-off to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is a perspicuous and stimulating card game that CDPR originally devised as a side hobby in its adored RPG series, but the clash of wits and stats has found new life as a much loved pastime that can really steal the hours from any competitor, if they're willing to let it.
The PlayStation Store was integrated with the PSP in October of 2008. As a part of the PSP update 5.00, PSP users are able to access the store right from their handhelds to download games and media right to their memory stick. This store is the same as the one available for PC. It is important for Sony's strategy to continue to push digital distribution with the PSN so that PSP games will be available day and date to download off the store. The PSP Go is dependent on this due to its lack of a UMD drive.
While physical copies of games on the consoles will obviously still exist, the secondary market prices will go up once the digital stores are closed. However, you'll still be able to download previously purchased content via the system's Download List, even after the stores are closed. As long as you buy anything you might have had your eye on before the cut-off date, you can still download it after they're gone.
Sony Computer Entertainment Europe announced the PlayStation 3 Slim, a smaller and lighter model of the console and a release date of 1 September 2009. Firmware 3.0 for the PlayStation 3 was also announced, adding new features to the PlayStation Network. Sony announced that the European Video Store would launch in November 2009. Sony also announced that the PlayStation Portable would get smaller games (under 100mb) in the form of 'minis' and that comics would also be available to download in December 2009. A "free game" registration promotion was announced for the PSP Go.
Microsoft Game Studios announced Fable III, along with a release date of 2010. Also, Microsoft announced their intention to release Fable II on the Xbox Live Marketplace in five episodes, the first of which will be free to download.
Once she figured out that the iPhone-likescreen of the PSPgo flipped up to reveal controls, all was well. That she expected it to work like an iPhone says tons about how much Apple has changed our thinking about devices altogether. But moreto the point, Apple has realigned media distribution. This PSPgo has no hard media to insert. It is phone-like in its reliance on digital downloads, either through WiFi or a PlayStation 3 game consoleconnection. Even more striking is the appearance of "mini" games in the Sony network store. Like the Nintendo DSiWare shop, Sony is following the iPhone model in offering small and cheap downloadablegames. I understand that digital magazine and comics are coming soon as well. The app model is proliferating to a range of devices. Now it is part of the rumored Apple Tablet as well. 2b1af7f3a8
