Sony has confirmed that all games that will be released for the Upcoming NGP will be available for digital download.
SCEE’s Andrew House discussed how the PSP influenced the development of the new console in an interview with MCV.
“One thing we learnt from PSP, is that we want to have simultaneous delivery in digital and physical for NGP. Just to clarify that, all games that appear physically will be made available digitally. Not necessarily all games have to be made available physically. And having the option of a digital-only method affords more creative risk-taking, and that’s because you don’t-have that in-built risk of physical inventory.”
It is really good that Sony is offering both physical and digital media for their new portable rather than relying on just digital distribution like the ill-fated PSP go.
