Need something to download on your PSPgo? No? Well, you might be surprised what you'll find your fingers doing in a few minutes. Sony has announced a new line of 10-dollar downloadable PSP games, dubbed "PSP Favorites," this afternoon (via Joystiq and PS.blog). A total of 16 titles were revealed for the price point, and it's a list that has some great-to-decent titles like PixelJunk Monsters Deluxe, LocoRoco 2, Patapon 2, and quasi-golden oldies like SOCOM: Fireteam Bravo, and Silent Hill: Origins.
The full list, excluding the aforementioned, is: Ape Escape: On the Loose, Buzz! Master Quiz, Hot Shots Golf Open Tee, Syphon Filter: Logan's Shadow, Twisted Metal: Head On, Justice League Heroes, Manhunt 2, Midway Arcade Treasures: Extended Play, Pinball Hall of Fame: Williams Collection, Sims 2, and The Warriors.
For once, you're not being left out, Europeans. Sony is also busting out an even better version of the latter deal for several regions.
== TEASER ==
Starting June 9 and rolling until September 30, Sony is literally giving away a total of ten games to anyone who buys a new PSPgo or purchased one after April 1, 2010. If you qualify, all you need to do is hit the PSN store and download "the new PSPgo theme." From there, SCEE will e-mail you a voucher that'll let you download the following ten games: Assassins Creed: Bloodlines, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, Gran Turismo, James Cameron’s Avatar: The Game, LittleBigPlanet, MotorStorm Arctic Edge, Need for Speed Shift, Pursuit Force: Extreme Justice, 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa, and Wipeout Pure.
You can argue that the US deal is a pretty transparent attempt to get more people buying PSPgos, and then used to downloading and buying games, but this European deal? It seems downright desperate. That's a lot of new games up for grabs for anyone who bothers to buy Sony's smaller handheld. I wonder if this deal will stimulate sales as much as it seems like Sony wants it to.
