Sony Computer Entertainment Japan plans to populate the PlayStation Store with first party games the same day they appear in stores for a lower price. Every first party PSP game is getting a dual release treatment. Third party games don’t seem to be picking up this strategy yet, opting for digitally distributed re-releases on the PlayStation Store at a later date. However, Siliconera reader Tristan made an interesting discovery and sent us a tip (thanks!!). In Sony’s TGS 2008 line up Dissidia: Final Fantasy is listed for sale as disc (i.e. UMD disc) / download. Huh? This could be a mistake from a marketing department or leaked information about a digital copy of Dissidia: Final Fantasy. While we’re waiting for Square Enix USA to localize Dissidia: Final Fantasy importers could get easy access to the Japanese version directly from the PlayStation Store.
