Sony has announced a new promotion that is looking to re-energise sales of the PSPgo by offering 10 free games with purchase of the console. New buyers, or those existing owners who registered their console after April 1st will receive 10 games of their choice for free.
The games list includes many hit titles including Gran Turismo, MotorStorm Arctic Edge, LittleBigPlanet, Wipeout Pure, Pursuit Force: Extreme Justice, FIFA World Cup, Need For Speed: Shift, Avatar, GTA Vice City Stories and Assassin’s Creed.
To download their free games, users will have to download a special Promotion Theme from the Playstation store. The offer is only available to certain countries (not the U.S.) and gamers over the age of 18.
Edge-Online assumes that PSPgo sales have been stalling ever since the system launched last October, pointing out that the go has sold less than 25,000 in Australia and consistently appears at the bottom of Japanese sales charts.
Still, I think anyone can appreciate free games, especially ten of them. Full promotion details (including participating countries) can be found here.
