According to overnight reports, Sony is considering both game rentals and music downloads for PSP.

The company is polling consumers in the US on the subject of a rental service, as you can see on Joystiq, asking questions on costing and potential frequency of use.

In addition, “music industry sources” have told CNET that Sony’s currently in preliminary discussions to bring music downloads to PSP.

“This makes total sense that Sony would try to get content for the device,” said Wedbush Morgan analyst, Michael Pachter, on the subject.

“If Sony is smart, they would manage it the same way iTunes has and be device-agnostic.”
