SCEA Confirms Patapon 2 Rumor

April 13, 2009Written by Draisey


PSLS previously reported on a rumor that Patapon 2 would not be released on UMD, and instead be available as a downloadable title via PSN. And according to Patrick Seybold, Senior Director of Corporate Communications at SCEA, everything we’ve heard is true.

“We’re considering a digital-only format for the Patapon 2 release as a one-time test case as we continue to explore consumer preferences for digital content,” Seybold told IGN. “The downloadable game will be available on May 5th at both retail and via the PlayStation Store. We remain focused on providing superior games and entertainment experiences in both the UMD and digital formats and are working closely with our partners to deliver the best PSP line up in our history.”

Will you still be picking up this title, or avoid it due to its UMD-less status?
