Sony's PSP strategy includes new content with cheaper, smaller downloadable games


Sony has said that it's planning to start wooing developers for digitally distributed games on PSP by doing away with concept approval and releasing less expensive developer kits and low price points for new titles.

“We’re introducing new initiatives for the PSP which take it beyond traditional gaming, but still includes elements from gaming, and also includes new developers," SCEE's head of developer relations Zeno Colaco told Develop at E3.

So far, over 50 studios around the world are making new kinds of games and applications and creations will be offered through a separate area of the PlayStation Store open to the PSP and PSPgo.

Emerging markets, including India's Gameshastra and Creat have also signed on but the development will not be reminiscent of Apple's SDK with iPhone, because Sony's SDK will not be made available publicly.

"It is still a professional environment, you still need a development kit and you still need to have investment and a team," he stated. "But it can be a small team. We don’t see any of the restrictions on the disc-based space being in this space."
