Sony to launch PSP music download service Sony is once again going to challenge the supremacy of Apple's iTunes music store and its music player, the iPod. Sony already has a music store called Connect but it has failed to reach the popularity that iTunes and other services such as Napster have reached. Sony Computer Entertainment Europe now plans on launching a music service specifically for its Playstation Portable (PSP) console which is expected to arrive in March in both Europe and the United States. At first, the service will allow users to download new levels and updates but it will move on to music around summer.
It is also a possibility when you look at the Sony PSP specs that Video downloads could also come along too sooner or later but Sony has mentioned nothing of such service yet. The PSP is just one of several new consoles expected to launch quite soon but it seems to be the console that will stand out in the crowd, which is usual for Sony console products ever since the first Playstation came along. Nintendo is also set to launch its new DS handheld console but have admitted it will aim the console at women, probably because male users would go for the classy look of the PSP.
