Two days ago an announcement was made over on the US PlayStation Blog regarding the release of Invizimals in America. Right at the end of the post was some disappointing news that PSPgo owners will not be getting access to the game.
“One thing to note: Invizimals is not compatible with PSPgo.”
This slightly conflicts with an answer I received a few weeks back from Mike Kebby over on the EU blog, who was excepting it to see a digital release.
“Should be yes, all Sony published PSP games have made it onto the store, and the most recent ones have been on the same day as the UMD versions too.”
The game could still see a digital release though I can already see the comments section filling up once PSPgo owners attempt to play it. The issue surrounding the release appears to be related to the PSP camera. The mini USB socket required to use the camera isn’t available on the PSPgo.
Sony did unveil an adapter to allow the camera, GPS and microphone peripherals to work with the PSPgo but at present this hasn’t been released outside of Asia. Every time I have attempted to import it has resulted in the website blocking the sale as shipping to my address for this item isn’t available.
This is something Sony clearly need to sort out pretty quickly with the second Invizimals game and EyePet for the PSP due out before Christmas.
