The developers behind the Worms franchise have given their opinion on why the PSP Go has faced such poor sales since release.
They claim that the digital-only-distribution has little to do with it, rather, down to the hardware and pricing strategy chosen by Sony.
“Digital Distribution is here to stay” he Martyn Brown told IncGamers. “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 and App Store.”
Sony admitted that it had ‘learnt a lot’ from the release of the PSP Go.
In an attempt to boost sales, free game downloads have been given away with every full purchase.
Industry analysts have constantly called for price cuts to the device, with Michael Pachter adding that it would ‘sell out everywhere at $99.’
