Sony confirms UMD-less 'Patapon 2' Confirming earlier reports that surfaced this week, Sony America has announced that the new PSP game Patapon 2 will be UMD-less and will be exclusively sold as a digital download.
Senior director of corporate communications Patrick Seybold added that the release is a "one time test case as we continue to explore consumer preference for digital content."

Seybold was also quick to note that the company remains committed to UMD, the proprietary disc format. "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."

The game will cost $15 USD from the PlayStation Store and those that want to purchase a retail copy with case, those will be available as well, but will only include a sheet with a coupon code to download the game online. It will also cost $5 USD more.

The game is set for release on May 5th.
