Despite the popular notion that the PSP Go’s had rather a poor
showing as a vehicle for digital downloads, we’re more of the opinion it
had a poor showing as a vehicle for convincing gamers with hefty
physical media collections to give them up entirely for no benefit
whatsoever. Which, we’re sure you’ll agree, is a tall order for any
handheld, especially one half-heartedly released at the end of the
product’s life cycle.
Enter the PS Vita, the stupidly-named,
but stupidly overpowered to compensate handheld Sony is bringing to the
market later this year. A Sony rep
has apparently promised that digital versions of all games released for
the new console will be available day and date with retail copies.
Sure, Sony might have promised that exact same thing for the PSP Go
back then and completely failed to deliver, but we can forgive a lot for
a second analog nub.
