Digitally Renting PSP Games?

October 2nd, 2009 -


During my travels through my new PSP Go, searching in and out of every nook and cranny to prepare for my hardware review I had noticed something peculiar: you can’t group your games into folders like you can on the PS3. Out of curiosity I pressed square to re-sort the folders like the PS3; and it did. But there is only 1 way to sort them… and that is by when they expire. Why would my PSP games expire? If I rented a movie off Sony’s video delivery service (PSN) it would expire, but any game available to me would never expire. Have we stumbled onto an unannounced feature for the Go (that everyone assumed was coming)? I mean it would only make sense since I can’t rent games from Gamefly anymore. Think about it: download any game for three to five dollars for a couple of days and then have it expire, or something similar to replace the inability to rent games.

Is this a viable replacement for rentals in the digital conversion of the portable platform? You be the judge…
