Monday 31-Jan-2011 11:40 AM And you should be able to re-download PSP digital titles
I didn't know it was that hard to do. Make it happen and you might sell even more PSP Gos...
Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep is my biggest concern for getting a digital distribution version
I don't get why they have to bargain. It = more sales opportunities.
if the companys dont they will become victim to pirates...ARG!
Wonder hoe mush it will cost? Sony is just like other companies and they overcharge for Digital software.
They don't overcharge they charge the same in most cases. Just because you can get a deal online or used game doesn't mean they are overcharging. I understand what you are getting at that they should be cheaper cause no case and retail packaging but that would undermine the retail sales.
I'll bet it's a major pain/effort for some titles, others are probably no brainers, newer games are almost certainly better/easier. Games usually have a studio, publisher, and may also have licensed content from another artist of some sort (music, celebrity likeness, etc). Depending on how the existing contract is written, it may require renegotiation, new payments, or an entirely new contract altogether with all the parties involved, some of whom may no longer be around (game studios go out of business all the time or could even get bought by rivals, etc). Given how little some of these games are going to make, it may just not be profitable to even bother. How much do you think Sony is willing to pay/work to get "Chili Con Carnage" on PSN? That was a GREAT GREAT game (IMHO) but I don't think it was a big hit on UMD, it suffered from one of the stupidest names of all time and had no real marketing, etc, so I'll have to hold onto my OG PSP 1000 and UMD if I want to play it!
Please happen, Please happen, Please happen, Please happen, Please happen, Please happen.
Yes. Please do. I like not having to worry about carrying around UMDs with my PSPgo, but with so many games not available to download through PSN, it definitely has its disadvantages. Looking forward to the NGP, and hopefully more publishers will be on board with digital download by the time it releases.
If it happens NGP has got the path to becoming a legendary console laid out (console handheld video game device whatever)
Kingdom Hearts BBS please
dont care, I will still be using my psp 3000 @ sometimes I think your the one trolling. Its my opinion that this isnt such a big deal when you have a 3000.
trolling over everything, amirite? edit- i say trolling because this has nothing to do with the PSP 3000 and almost all your comments are negative in some way
They said this with the psp go and they didnt lt you get umd games on it. Dont believe it, you will have to rebuy most likely. If they did this i would get one much sooner than i prob will now.
Crisis Core, Birth by Sleep, 3rd Birthday. Sony, you have stock in Square-Enix... Make it happen lol
direct digital ports?...so you will buy them again correct?...
Will 3DS owners buy Orcania of Time again?
Well if they'd done this for the PSP Go I'd have bought one a long time ago now.
"The exec told Impress Watch (via Andriasang) that retail NGP games will ship on a custom memory card format, and that each game card will have rewritable space to store save data and downloadable content." thats sounds like a good idea.
totally, it will allow the digital format to prevail while not stepping on the toes of retailers
I want an SDHD slot for movies/music as well
i read the process on tech radar about emulating PSone classics and realized how long it is but as far as i no, sony dont need to get publishers to re-release them, unlike with the PSP titles emulation for the ps1 classics as well original PSP games isnt easy apparently...oh well, hope sony have it under control for the PS suite launch as well as the NGP
You will have to buy your games again. If they took the backwards compatibility out of the PS3 so they could resell you HD versions of your old PS2 games, you can't expect them to give you your old PSP games for free. It just wouldn't be Sony.
Kingdom Hearts BBS and Peace Walker please :)
Peace Walker was out on PSN day 1.
Wow, this is actually exactly what I wanted to know. I hope they go through with it. I'd gladly buy some PSP games through download when I get my NGP.
i dont know why but as i read that, scorpions wind of change was playing in my head..
@ silvacrest Stealth2K is right. This does affect all the people who have UMDs as people who only had the PSPGo will have no issues as they can transfer their purchase PSN items right to NGP. As it stands, those of us with UMDs should hold on to our 3000s for now.
if sony really wanted to make fans happy they would find a way to give free downloads for those who own the umd version of the games.
Going to get peacewalkers, FF9,FF8,FF7, Parasite Eve, Parasite Eve 2, Dino Crysis 1, Dino Crysis 2, Resident Evil 1, Resident Evil 2, Resident Evil 3, Hopefully code Veronica. Thats what Platstation Suit offers you. PSP, PSX and PS2 (i hope) titles to download
is Kingdom Hearts BBS that good? I've never played a Kingdom Hearts game in my life but it seems people are having orgasm every time they mention any of its games. Hell, I was checking my local wal-mart and i see that THIS game sells like hot cakes. Seriously, is that Game THAT GOOD?
im not buying any more umd for this reason of playing the digital games on the new psp
re-release them as "HD" remake + Trophies XD
