SOE launches new PSP site

Station.com gets sister site Mobile.Station with interface, videos, and wallpapers designed for use on the portable.

23 Comments

Sony's PSP has been capable of Web browsing for a few months now, but one problem users have reported is that there aren't many sites out there designed for viewing on the portable. Sony Online Entertainment today announced that it is doing its part to rectify the situation with the launch of the new Mobile.Station, a Web portal designed especially for the PSP.

Beyond just providing information with a compact, PSP-friendly interface, Mobile.Station offers PSP users downloadable trailers, wallpapers, and even new content for games (which for the moment is limited to extra tracks in GripShift). The site also offers a number of links to other mobile-friendly sites, and screenshots and information for a number of PSP, PS2, and PC games.

PSP users will need to have firmware updated to version 2.0 or later in order to access the browser or visit the Web site.

Yeah, when I follow the bookmark on my psp browser, I'm taken to a completely different playstation psp site, not this one, which seems to have much more content.

lame. what's the point? there isn't as much info as there as on the real playstation psp site. the trailer for RENT's kinda cool, but if i want good wallpapers that don't look like crap, i'll either download them from the psp's homepage or i'll go to deviant art instead.

Just marketing fluff. The only thing worth going there for is for the wallpapers, and even then only if you're fans of Station games.

I think its a great idea, now gamers can see what's new without leaving the handheld alone.

it's a cool accomplishment to have a browser in a handheld, but totally useless. Even if it works, the question is... Why? The only thing online is good for in gaming machines is stats, downloadable content & online play.

The PSP browser is too slow to be useful. It was nice to use when I first got the PSP but now its just an accessory thats never used. If I want to browse the web I go to the computer. You can't even watch Gamespot videos on the PSP's browser.

Sabooya, I heard that they wanted to add Java which would be great, but it would also be cool if gaming websites did have a psp friendly site.

I think the PSP browser should be updated, For java at least and work with the sites allready up, not force others to make new sites, but yah the new site idea is cool. And the guy above^ YAH LUMINES ROCKS!!!!!!!!
