SCEA sends mixed messages on Minis patches and multiplayer


SCEA PSN boss Eric Lempel has directly contradicted comments made by SCEA senior account manager Justin Cooney on the matter of whether developers are allowed to patch and add multiplayer to PSP Minis.

"You can patch Minis," Lempel told Destructoid, "but we won't have multiplayer functions in the beginning.

"Basically, to get these developers on board, and to make it easier to test and get it through the pipeline, we won't be allowing that functionality for the first stage of Minis."

Cooner told Gamasutra last week that, according to the site, "PSP Mini digital download games will not be allowed to have wireless multiplayer functionality, downloadable content, or software updates."

What a crazy, crazy mess. Somebody should write a letter. Minis launch alongside PSP go on October 1.
