It’s taken Sony two years to finally figure out that there’s gold in them thar downloadable content hills. Sony revealed this week at their Gamers Day conference that they are now actively planning a PSP Store, an online marketplace where handheld users can download multimedia content to their PSP’s.

Matt’s fluorescent beauty.

The real deal that users are getting will probably come in the form of downloadable video content, which is basically non-existent right now. iTunes holds the majority stake for all kinds of content right now, but Sony looks to compete with them in supplying movies, music, and possibly games on their PSP Store. Of course, this is all just speculation, as nothing has been officially announced, other than that Sony will have a store where you can download stuff.

I’m sure Sony had this kind of service in the back of their minds since the PSP launched, but has only actively pursued it after their UMD medium was shot in the face, late last year. Most major retail outlets reduced their UMD movies for sale, or outright canceled them. As of now, UMD is basically dead.

And I would also like to take this opportunity to say, “I TOLD you so!” Earlier this year, I predicted a few things that may or may not happen, and one of them was a PSP Live service. With this announcement, along with one that hints at a possible PSP Lite, one of my predictions has come to fruition.

Muwahahahah! Total world domination is nearly in my grasp!
