Square Enix disappointed some (but likely not that many) when their PR firm recently reported to IGN that Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep, the highly anticipated next game in the Kingdom Hearts series, is currently only set to be released via UMD only. Despite rumors to the contrary, Square Enix currently has no plans to release Birth By Sleep digitally on the PlayStation Network – which is bad news for the ten people out there that actually bought a PSP Go.
This news is especially astonishing because not only is Birth By Sleep almost definitely going to be a top seller, nearly every game released for the PSP in the past year has also had a subsequent PSN release for those who own the PSP Go, even smaller titles. Could this mean Sony is accepting that the PSP Go was not a successful venture?
Just one more reason I’m glad I decided not to upgrade from my PSP 3000.
