Destructoid- Rumor: Sony to unveil PSPgo apps, small games at gamescom

Destructoid- While the lack of physical media for Sony's PSPgo may be signaling the death-knell for the Universal Media Disc, it may be opening up new doors for developers.

Sources close to game development have told Destructoid that Sony is actively pushing developers to design smaller, "non-retail" games and applications for the PSP. These "non-retail" games and apps would come in priced considerably lower than the traditional retail UMDs and full games made available for download on the PlayStation Network.

i wouldn't be surprised i mean im sure the dsi has one as well

If this proves to be true, I have another reason to get a PSP Go. The handheld is priced a little high but overall oozes with quality and charm. Little Big Planet, MG:Rising, and Grand Turismo PSP should be awesome :-)

Well, it is Sony's answer to Apples free iphone/itouch SDK. Must be. They are also pushing their now renamed "Media Go" app (former Mediamanger) which is basically their version of iTunes - now with full PSN integration. Pretty obvious where this is heading.

I was surprised. If I used my PSP for more multi media applications I would be all over Media Go. In fact, I might me more inclined to use my PSP for movies and music more because of Media Go.

...I suggested it before... along with an accelerometer, but the PSP GO doesn't have one of those :(

It would really make games much more fun to play though.

SpoonyRedMage5218d ago

I thought Sony didn't follow trends?

It'd be pretty cool I suppose. The DSiware has some apps but they're mostly meh but there's some definately cool stuff coming like Flipnote Studio(Moving Memo!) and the 6-in-1 translator.

2 and the third were the only ones I really enjoyed. All the really wierd stuff in the other games I just didn't like. I want gang wars.
I'm sure there'll still be saints row games....maybe.

Don't get me wrong I eventually got around to enjoying Saints Row 3 and somewhat enjoying Saints row 4. But saints row pretty much died after 2. How can you go from a wacky not so series GTA type game. To a wacky game with aliens and super powers?

Saints row 1 was fun. Saints row 2 was again really enjoyable.

Then the super powers came and ruined it imo.

Sort of like resident evil. First few games where amazing and then 4 came around with crazy people rather than zombies.

what ruined resi for me was that it turned from general real horror to an action game with horror set pieces.

ocelot0720d ago

Exactly the over the shoulder camera with crazy dudes with axes really ruined the series for me. Enjoyed 5 but didn't treat it as a resi game. Enjoyed 7 and Village.

It’s been dead since SR3. The best game in the series was SR2

The franchise was dead the minute they included gat in agents of mayhem and dropped the trailer for the reboot just re enforced it

Damn. I was hoping it was the original open world F&F game that was cancelled. That game actually sounded cool. This is just an Xbox version of the Tokyo Drift game. Still cool to see though.

I remember getting a demo of Lamborghini from OXM just before it got cancelled because the studio collapsed, it was so good and when I heard they converted that game into Juiced I bought it day one; the demo was better!
