Sony of Japan has recently prepped a chain of eateries with technology that will enable them to stream a new service for PSP owners. This new technology can be accessed at certain branches of Gourmet Pia café. Christened PlayStation.Spot, the service provides downloadable content like demos and other software via hotspots around 150 locations. It takes advantage of the "gameshare" function to get the content to your PSP without having to tap into a memory stick.
No word on whether we should expect this in the States or Europe. Perhaps they will roll it out in local retail outlets before too long. This could be a good way to check out titles before settling on a decision. No one likes a $40 mistake, after all.

They've been around since October.

This is nothing new... only an expansion of the service.
"PlayStation Spot"s have been available at some electronic stores and at the Sony Building in Ginza, Tokyo.
This is an expansion in to some coffee shops and at some major train stations (Sapporo, Tokyo).
I've tried these out... it is a good way to see if you might be interested in an upcoming game or not.
