The release of the PSP Go last October 2009 was quite a controversial topic among gamers. The fact that the PSP Go no longer supports the UMD or Universal Media Disk format used by older versions and is being replaced by expandable flash storage is proving to be both a benefit and a disappointment for current and future PSP gamers. However, that doesn’t stop Sony from releasing a huge selection of games for download on the PlayStation Network, specifically the PlayStation Store. gaming news ps5 For some, this is good news. Because of the way Sony is pricing these games, they may have to stop first and reconsider their marketing strategies.

After Apple’s App Store sold games for a dollar each, gamers are left with mixed feelings and unrealistic expectations about the prices of downloadable games specifically for the PSP Go. It seems there is something wrong with the pricing, as the general consensus suggests.

Network are slightly cheaper

At the moment, many digitally distributed games available on PlayStation Network are slightly cheaper than UMD format games. However, Sony’s goal is to make the price of UMD games and digitally distributed games the same.

There are several advantages or arguments in Sony’s favor if this is the case. First, the player still gets the same game. Not having the game in its physical form means that physical storage space is saved. Game manuals are stored in-game or available online. Therefore, shelf space is saved. Second, players don’t have to worry if they lose a game by accidentally deleting it from your memory stick. You can just download the same game for free. If a player loses the UMD, the game is lost forever. Third, the physical packaging doesn’t really elevate the game, but it does increase the developers’ production and marketing costs.

Digitally distributed games and UMD games

On the other hand, there are arguments against the same pricing of digitally distributed games and UMD games. First, gamers might feel like they’re being ripped off. Because it’s cheaper for developers, the savings should be felt by end users in the form of lower prices for digitally distributed games. Secondly, the resale of used games is no longer necessary . Once you have downloaded and finished a game, you cannot trade or sell it as the game is tied to the player’s PlayStation Network account.

Whether Sony can convince its users that UMD games and downloaded games should be priced the same remains to be seen. However, it seems obvious that the case for cheaper downloads versus UMD games is stronger and more solid. The savings should be passed on to consumers in the form of lower prices for downloaded versions of games. It could be argued that because there is no physical game for shoppers to see in store, some of that savings is being spent on additional marketing. Since many players there get game news and reviews online anyway, this argument feels a little hollow.
