PSP Go’s Digital Games same price as UMD?

1 min read

Sony’s Australian and New Zealand Chief, Michael Ephraim, has been chatting it about E3 in general and has made an interesting comment about the price of the upcoming PSP Go’s games.

While trying to defend the UMD and insisting on it’s continued use he states that the digital PSP Go’s games will be based on the same price structure as the PSP 3000.

Now he could mean that they have a pricing structure similar to the one below and they will be following it with the PSP Go or they are simply going to market the games at the exact same price.

  • Game Licence $40
  • Manual $5
  • UMD + Case $5
  • Delivery $5
  • Marketing $5

To make up a complete price of AUD $60 per title, so if they followed the same pricing model can we be expected to save $15 per title when we download them?

Do you think it would be acceptable to pick up our flaming torches and pitch forks if they release the digital versions at the full retail price though?

*Please note that pricing structure is purely an example and not truly indicative of what the current pricing model may be.
