    Default Patapon 2 Going UMD-Less for Stateside

    Confirmed: Patapon 2 Going UMD-Less for Stateside Debut

    Posted by x3sphere at April 13, 2009, 9:46 pm


    Once rumor, now true. In a statement released to press, SCEA communications director Patrick Seybold confirms that Patapon 2 will be sold strictly as a digital offering in North America, unbound by the shackles of UMD format. Only a voucher code good for downloading the title digitally via PSN will be included in retail packaging. Seybold however is quick to point out that this a “one test case,” meaning this is not a strategy Sony plans on adopting from here on out — at least not yet.
    Full statement is after the break.
    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. 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.
    bad move i think
    not all psp have a way to d/l the game

    will we see a dump of the game of some kind, when it out


    PSP 1.5 got on USA first day is was 1.5 NOW 4.01 M33-2 -> 5.00 M33-6(1.50 addon),
    Old PS3s: PS3 60GB FW:3.41(2nd ps3 YLoD, 1st, YLoD)
    New PS3:
    Slim 160gb 01-21-2011 Working
    was 3.40 OFW->3.60 OFW

    2nd PSP : PHAT 5.50 GEN-D2
    3rd PSP : Sliver 3000 Starting OFW:4.20 (NEW bought NEW on 11/28/2010)
    It a good idea to have "Hide extensions for known file types" in Folder Options(under Tool) unchecked (turn on extensions)

    Ok mister pirate whats ur fckn answer for when a game goes umdless worldwide? If the new PSP goes umdless and psn games wont work on current cfw lol. Id assume Patapon 2 is gonna be one of the games that requires a firmware real bad (on purpose) i havent used np decrypt on a game i own for awhile id assume it still works on 5.00 for most games though.

    LOL @ Mr Pirate .... Either way it will get dumped and dycrypted in time . With more and more JPN releases needing higher firmware versions you can bet your ass that this will need a new higher CFW to run it . If the old NPDecrypt does not work ( Which it probably still does ) I'm sure a new one will be on the way to beat the protection on new games .

    The game is no better than the first one anyway ....... It's more like Patapon 1.5 than Patapon 2 ...... Should of been a DLC addon anyway .

    Now if all games went to Dload only and could never be copied ( Which is really the way to go for the future ) , So what the games are 99% crap anyway .... LOL

    Actually considering buying this. Wish Sony would make a PSP emulator for the PS3, so we could play our PSP PSN games on the PSP on the big screen, that'd be fun!
