Were you one of the early adopters of the PSP Go!? Do you love the insatiable cuteness and creative charm of LittleBigPlanet? Well if you answered yes to both of these questions then you already know this news story. On November 17th LittleBigPlanet PSP was released in retails stores along with Assassins Creed: Bloodlines. At the stroke of midnight, on the 17th, Assassins Creed Bloodlines was released along side its UMD counterpart in stores. Unfortunately, LBP did not see a similar simultaneous release. As the week continued Sony released this statement

LittleBigPlanet PSP is not currently available on the Playstation Store. The goal is to have titles available on the Playstation Store and [in shops] on the same day…we’re working on solving the problem as we speak.”

This has left many LBP and PSP fans disappointed and frequently checking the store. This creates a very unique situation in which gamers can go to the store, look at the game in real life, have the money in hand, and still not have the capability to play the game. So Elder-Geeks does this story affect your view of the PSP Go!, or digital distribution in general?

  1. I dislike digital distribution because they charge full MSRP despite it being a download.

    I can buy GTA Chinatown Wars for PSP in hard copy for 39.80 at a local game store and have a copy to hold, a manual to read, and a big map to use. Furthermore, I can trade it in/resell it when I’m done with it.

    Yet for $39.99, I only get the game as a download.

    If PSP games get $10 knocked off their download price, I might look into it.

  2. The Go is a joke. I’m completely against gaming going 100% digital, and I’m even more so against it when the system isn’t capable of playing every title available.

  3. Come one Sony, you need to release the Digital copy the same day as the physical copy, or better yet, the digital copy before the physical copy. Marketing fail Sony.
