I like this. It brings together Sony's ineptitude in online music sales with their ineptitude in handheld gaming. Outstanding. Bravo. Make it play on the brown Zune and I'm sold. :)

Love how it's not an iTunes killer this time.

How exactly does this compete with iTunes?

Getting movies solely for use on your PSP (assuming that you even have one) does not seem like a very interesting proposition.

I tend to think these types of announcements serve two audiences:

1. Investors. Sony perceives that it needs to play in this space at some level to keep the shareholders happy.

2. Sony loyalists. See above.

I bet the executive that made that brilliant business plan is getting a big bonus for this christmas.......

This is just another ploy to make the investors happy.

The problem being... No one actually does...
