Traveller’s Tales’s Jon Burton: Sony will make downloadable games cheaper, ‘or the PSPgo will die’

More helpful advice for Sony

Product: PSPgo | Manufacturer: Sony Europe

Jon Burton, founder of Lego Star Wars developer Traveller’s Tales, believes that something has to give with Sony’s downloadable games service.

Burton was speaking at the Developer Jury Service, which puts a series of tough questions to a group of influential games industry types. He questioned the ongoing viability of Sony’s download-only PSPgo device when their UMD games are still selling for far less money.

“I own a PSPgo but don’t want to buy LittleBigPlanet, for instance, as I can get it 20 per cent cheaper on UMD from Amazon and could resell it once I’m finished with it” said Burton. “But if I download it, I get no discount, and no chance to resell - how annoying is that?”

Very, Jon. Very.

He went on to make a bold prediction concerning the handheld’s future:

“I’m betting on Sony making PSPgo games much cheaper than the UMD versions, or the PSPgo will die.”

What do you think? Is the PSPgo really doomed to failure? Would a price cut even be enough to save the system? Comments below.

Yes it would. I really really want one but the issue lies with the price of the games.. It a total failure.. I can buy a game for $20 och $30, I want it for $20 and the availability to resell? Why pay more for a non material merchandize than a real product..
