A survey has popped probing participants on their willingness to pay for digital PSP rentals, adding further weight to the suggestion that UMD is on its deathbed and, dare we say it, PSP GO is on the horizon.
The survey, first picked up by Joystiq
, asks gamers what they would pay to download games to their PSP for a limited period of time. SPOnG's had a dig around and pulled up a host of screens showing the potential pricing for such a service.
The top price suggested is $49.99 per month (for a minimum of three months), with the option to download up to three titles per month from a selection of games added 12 months after launch. You'd have to be a lunatic to pay that, especially when you compare it to some of the other options mentioned, suggesting that a database has spewed forth potential subscription packages based on set parameters. It does look, however, like the top price being considered is, indeed, $49.99. You can peruse the full range of options in the images we've grabbed here
The fact that Sony is considering such a service adds yet more weight to the notion that UMD is going the way of the dodo. It also adds merit to rumours of the impending announcement of a significant upgrade to the PSP's hardware
- one that could include up to 16GB of internal memory.
