Report: Developers told of PSP rental plans at GDC

It looks like Sony’s been thinking of doing a PSP games rental service for quite some time now. A consumer survey was recently discovered yesterday, it looks like Sony has been gauging the interest in a PSN-powered games rental service for the PSP. Through the rental service, PSP owners would pay a monthly fee to gain access to a library of new and archived games on the PlayStation Store.

According to a report by Develop, Sony pitched plans of a rental service to developers at GDC last March. Joystiq speculates that  ”a PSN-centric PSP would be far more attractive to developers that have shied away due to piracy concerns. “Offering a rental service would be yet another nail in UMD’s coffin, and would perhaps breath some new life into PSP development once again. These might also increases the chance of a flash memory based PSP in the near future.
