Traveler's Tales: PSPgo will die if games aren't cheaper

The PSPgo was a good idea wrapped in stupid ones. An all-digital handheld gaming platform geared specifically toward gamers should have been a good deal, but the usual Sony bullsh*t ruined the whole premise. The most ludicrous aspect of the PSPgo is how digital games cost as much as their retail counterparts, and developer Travelers Tales believes this issue could kill Sony's latest handheld.

“I own a PSPgo but don’t want to buy LittleBigPlanet, for instance, as I can get it 20% cheaper on UMD from Amazon and could resell it once I’m finished with it," says studio founder Jon Burton. "But if I download it, I get no discount, and no chance to resell -- how annoying is that? I’m betting on Sony making PSPgo games much cheaper than the UMD versions, or the PSPgo will die."

Burton's right -- what makes downloadable PSP games worth the money? You can get Persona PSP on Amazon for cheaper than the PSN version -- and that's for the special edition, that comes with stuff the digital version simply cannot offer. The PSPgo seems to have been a big waste of time for everyone, and I don't even think Sony cares if it lives or dies.
