Online PSP store opens in Europe
YourPSP.com, Sony's European PSP site always is a step above its American counterpart. Not only does the site look sexier, it has a lot more functionality. European PSP owners not only have a better website, but they get access to PlayStation Spot, white PSPs, Tales of Eternia, and they also get their downloadable demos days faster than the US. While Americans have to deal with the absolutely useless Connect.com, it appears that Europeans will now get an online store dedicated for the handheld. The site features downloadable demos, upgrades to games (such as new Lemmings levels), videos, music and wallpapers. Best of all, it appears that (for now) everything is free.
This service is almost exactly what we've been waiting for... now when's the US version of this going to happen?

They already have Loco Roco & a country or two where weed is decriminalized. That's like chocolate and penutbutter.

...IMO the US is the fortunate one. Sure, Europe now has a temporarily free online source for garbage in abundance, (wallpapers...trailers...anyone? no?) but the US gets most games months earlier than Europe. Europe still hasn't officially seen Syphon Filter:DM, Tekken:DR, or Valkyrie Profile:L.

There's nothing new on this site compared to yourpsp.com.
And hey, we never got the first Katamari game EVER.

You really think this is cool, Andrew? I disagree. It *would* be cool if we had unlimited (nearly, of course) media resources. It absolutely sucks that we'll see what we have on connect.com, at best. And those are only sony titles. I would like napster to support the PSP (it does not. I e-mailed napster and asked for it, and nothing but a generic "Look at the site for listed devices, you fucktard" returned). The media that's on this site at the moment is absolute trash. And it stinks. And I don't think it'll get any better. Hell, it won't even get _cheaper_! It might be interesting in regards of video. But I bet it'll be $3.50 upwards per movie. Or even per watch :) God bless DRM, god bless Sony.

Why is it only me that remembers Sony's big hoo-ha announcement last year that Connect would be relaunching in Feb '06 with downloadable video content??? Was I smokin' sumpin or did that really occur?
