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.

Sony have announced that there will be a second installment of the hit PlayStation 3 game – LittleBigPlanet on their official blog. LittleBigPlanet 2 will bring us a brand new Sack Boy adventure when it is released this winter and Sony are hoping that the sequel will be as popular as the first game was:

“LittleBigPlanet established the Play, Create, Share creative gaming genre and we can’t thank the fans and critics enough for the praise and support we’ve received. The game continues to grow and evolve, helped by countless players around the globe. In fact, the sharing nature of the game has become so embraced, it has attracted fans to publish more than two million levels to the PlayStation Network since the award-winning game was released!”

A trailer (posted below) has also been released along with some nice screenshots which can be found here at LittleBigLand.

Well it seems that LittleBigPlanet will not be moving forward with a sequel. Martin Lynagh stated “what you’ve seen so far from LittleBigPlanet that’s the way it’s going to continue” he is referring to DLC and updates for the existing game.

Danny Lever a level designer said “a sequel would fragment the LBP community” He stated he “would never want to do that as it would be the most counterproductive thing you could do”

Sounds like they are on our side from a gamers perspective.  If only Valve had taken the same stance for the L4D community.
