What would get you to buy a PSPgo… A free game? Two free games? No? How about 10 free games!
Sony Europe has unveiled their plans to rejuvenate PSPgo sales by offering ten free games to new owners of the system. Unfortunately the games are pre-selected but there are a few gems in the mix, including LittleBigPlanet, MotorStorm: Artic Edge, Grand Turismo and WipeOut Pure. Sure most people who own a PSP already get all their games for free but for those of us who like to do things the legal way this is certainly an incredible offer.

As someone who has been internally debating over whether I should buy a PSPGo or DSi XL this definitely tips the scale in Sony’s favor for me. I will however be waiting until E3 is over before making any purchase decisions. With rumors over a PSP2 currently looming on the internet it might be a little too late for the PSPgo to ever catch on, no matter what comes included with it.
