Playstation Spot – PlayStation Portable’s Wi-Fi hotspot network was launched by Sony on July. PlayStation Spot is centred on game retailers in London, Milton Keynes, Bristol, Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds, Glasgow and Edinburgh. The service provides PSP owners with a way to download content, including games demos, songs, videos and pictures, which according to Sony, are available only on Playstation Spot.
Whether this will be free of charge remains to be seen. While access to the wireless network surely will be free, PSP owners may have to pay the content. Sony promised that some content will be free, however.
With only 300+ Playstation Spots currently available, it looks considerably smaller compared to 7,500 hotspots of rival Nintendo’s Wi-Fi Connection for the DS.
