No Digital Release for PSP Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep

BOOM widget 95862 Sad news for PSP Go owners looking forward to Square Enix's Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep when it releases on September 7 as Square Enix has "no plans" for a digital release of the game (via Kotaku).

Sony's support of the PSP Go seemed to be on the rise as PlayStation Store updates were moved to Tuesdays, matching retail releases and making day-and-date digital releases a possibility. While digital releases of lower profile games are not always timely, it looked like high-profile titles were safe. Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker was day-and-date with retail.

Dissidia: Final Fantasy and many of Square's back-catalog titles have been released digitally. It's an odd move not to continue to support digital downloads for the new Kingdom Hearts game, especially after releasing Dissidia for Go users.
