In a bid to improve sales of the PSP Go, Sony has announced plans to offer 10 free game downloads. The free downloads are available to all users who registered their PSP after April 1, 2010.

“On PSPGo we’ve decided to innovate with that particular business model,” Sony Computer Entertainment UK sales director Mark Howsen told MCV. “Next month we’re launching a free ten game offer. And this isn’t just older titles–we’ve worked with third parties and there’s some really good core products.”

When the PSP Go was launched, it was expected to do good business. However, with a price tag of US$245, the PSP Go is a hefty premium over the $170 existing PSP. Moreover it isn’t much cheaper than the PlayStation 3 console, which costs $299.

Currently, each game download costs $10–15 and 10 free games means saving at least $100. The list of games that can be downloaded include 2010 FIFA World Cup, Gran Turismo, Grand Theft Auto, Assassins Creed: Bloodline and LittleBigPlanet.
