The PSP has become a very versatile platform with both UMD, and downloadable titles. Perhaps this will be taken a step further, as the fine folks over at Arstechnica are reporting that the Patapon 2 retail release will contain a voucher for a code that will allow you to download the game via the Internet.
The rumor, which they believe will become fact before long, also says that you will be able to buy the game via the Playstation Network for only $14.99. The retail release of Patapon 2 will still have a MSRP of $19.99. Sony made a comment stating “Regarding digital distribution for Patapon 2, nothing’s been announced on our end.”
