Almost all PSP games released since the PSP Go's launch are available both digitally and on UMD. One notable exception is about to hit stores, though: Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep.

"Just found out that there unfortunately are no plans to release KHBBS on PSP Go. If that changes, I will certainly let you know!" a spokesperson for Ogilvy (an outside PR agency employed by Square Enix) told Because I Told You So.

There was no mention of why Square is releasing the game on UMD but not through PSN. If they were going to pick one distribution method, you'd expect them to go with PSN, as it's gotta be cheaper than mass-producing the game and then shipping it to stores. Furthermore, older PSP models can download games as well so a digital release isn't excluding anyone in the way that a UMD-only release does.
