PSP go issues are not digital-related, says Team 17 boss

Team 17 boss Martyn Brown has said problems with PSP go have nothing to do with the fact it’s a digital device, but more so because of the price and available library.

Speaking with IncGamers about digital distribution and Worms Reloaded and Alien Breed, Brown said digital helped the firm out a lot, and reiterated his stance on it’s future.

“It’s totally changed the playing field for us and put the control back in our hands,” said Brown. “I would imagine none of this [release of Alien Breed and Worms] would have happened without the move to digital.

“Digital Distribution is here to stay. I think the issues with the PSPgo were somewhat different, basically the cost of the hardware, the software library and it’s pricing – the problem wasn’t that it was a digital device – look at the iPhone & appstore.”

The full interview with IncGamers is expected next week.

Worms Reloaded is to be released on August 26 through Steam, which gives you 10 percent off when you pre-order it.
