Sony considering a subscription service for the PlayStation store?

Sony is running a survey over in Asia where a question on the list asks “Which of the following offer from PLAYSTATION®Store (PC) that you find it appealing?”. One of the selectable answers is “Monthly subscription plan (1 price for unlimited download).”


While this is far from concrete information, I welcome the idea of PSPTap. If I can spend $5 or $10 to get unlimited access to a library of downloadable PsOne Classics and a handful of PSP originals like Beats I would do it in a heartbeat. Another question asks what kind downloadable UMD games people want to see on the store. There are some obvious choices like the Tekken series, Piposaru games and LocoRoco. I was initially surprised to see the text heavy Yarudora adventure game series on the list, but it’s on there because most of the games are localized into Chinese! Yes, even the Blood the Last Vampire game is in Chinese, but no company felt it would be profitable to localize it in English. As of now, Asia’s PlayStation PC Store is populated with RPGs localized in Chinese.
