Sony to launch music download service for PlayStation Portable (PSP)

Posted on Sunday, Jan 30 2005 @ 13:24 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
The PlayStation Portable from Sony will become a competitor to Apple's iPod as Sony is preparing a music, and eventually video, download service for its PSP.
“According to a Marketing magazine report, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) plans to launch a music service specifically for the PSP, which is expected to arrive in Europe and the US in March. SCEE will put the delivery mechanism in place in time for the handheld console's launch, using it to allow users to download game levels and software updates. However, the system will be extended to music in the summer. Given the PSP's multimedia focus, it's entirely possible the service could subsequently be used to deliver video downloads,” The Register web-site reports.
