Last week we reported that either Assassin’s Creed: Bloodlines and LittleBigPlanet would be made available for free to purchasers of a new PSP Go until March 21. Initially, it was believed that gamers would be able to choose one or the other as soon as they registered a PSN account or signed into their PSN account from the new PSP Go, but that appears to not be the case.
Sony today clarified the game new purchasers of a PSP Go will receive is determined by the gamer’s age. If you are 17 or older you will receive Assassin’s Creed: Bloodlines, and if you are younger, you will automatically get a free copy of LittleBigPlanet. Kind of a bummer, right? It seems like the sensible thing would be to make the ‘Mature’ rated Assassin’s Creed: Bloodlines available as a choice if you are over 17 while making LittleBigPlanet the only choice if you are under 17. After all, I’m 24 and I would much rather have LittleBigPlanet than Assassin’s Creed: Bloodlines.
Regardless, the offer extends to anyone who purchases a PSP Go between now and March 21. I suppose a free game is a free game?
