According to the Financial Times, Sony is readying a video-download service for its PlayStation Portable (PSP) device, which the story and an accompanying feature says is an Internet-to-PC-to-Memory Stick scheme that will compete with video downloads from Apple’s iTunes service. (Snore!)
The FT story (which doesn’t quote any source from Sony directly), adds that:
Sony, which has sold more than 20m PSPs worldwide, expects to launch the service in the first quarter of 2007 after tying up deals with online video providers.
And if you know Sony, don’t expect pieces of the puzzle, like the 4G memory stick, to be cheap! Or, to work with any other device other than one with the Sony name.
