One of the biggest complaints towards the end of the PSP’s life is that when a title launches in stores on UMD you can’t guarantee that it will hit PSN at the same time.
SCEE President Andrew House admits that to MCV while promising the device to offer a better service. “One thing we learnt from PSP, is that we want to have simultaneous delivery in digital and physical for NGP,” he said. “Just to clarify that, all games that appear physically will be made available digitally. Not necessarily all games have to be made available physically.”
Just like PSP Minis right now, this means not every NGP game will be available in stores, though House himself has explained this before. Sony struggle to keep the PlayStation Store itself updated across all regions; will they improve with NGP?
