Sony Japan is taking the fist steps into the PSP online business, announcing that all future first-party products made for this tiny, yet classy and incredible useful console (at least while you're waiting for your booze partners to join you in an all-night alcohol session), will be also available for download. UMD releases will still ship, of course.
This probably comes as a self-marketing thingie for the PSP Store extravaganza, which was also confirmed. So, if you have a store, you are bound to have some games to fill that store. Or something. According to Gameindustry.biz
, the first downloadable titles will be something alongside Secret Agent Clank, Patapon 2 and LocoRoco 2.
Japan only so far, though my bet is that a European and a North-American follow-up is soon to follow.
