There have been reports that Sony is going to launch an iTunes style application store.
They already have the Playstation network so the technology is all there and set up. The news is that Sony is asking developers to create smaller applications around 5-10MB in order to take advantage of the PSP Go’s new built in storage.
This could be seen as a good or bad move by Sony. The applications will work on all current PSP systems so developers have a massive incentive to take advantage of the huge market already out there. The problem is that Sony may not be as generous as iTunes with their 70% share for developers, if Sony was to squeeze developers’ margins then they could shoot themselves in the foot.
