Sony has spoken with some of the major recording companies about providing music for the PlayStation Portable, music industry sources told CNET News. The sources said the talks are only preliminary and no deals have been struck. But apparently, Sony is considering offering music on the PlayStation Network, the company's nascent multiplayer gaming and digital download service. Such a move could place the PSP in direct competition with other multiuse music players, most notably the iPhone. http://news.cnet.com/8301-1023_3-10246037-93.html?part=rss&subj=news&tag=2547-1_3-0-20 GDC behind-closed-door briefings detailed PSPs digital game rental service News may have only broken last night that Sony is considering PSP game renatals, but Develop can confirm that developers were briefed about the service as far back as March.
