To quote: The head of PlayStation marketing at Sony America, John Koller, has stated that Sony would ideally like to see simultaneous digital versions of its PSP titles released alongside their retail UMD counterparts.
"In the back half of this year, we should see a good rise in the amount of content that comes to PSN for the PSP," he told Wired. "We're aware that most of the content thus far has been for PS3, and that's based on the usage model and who has been demanding that content.
"But as we continue, and there's more of a desire from the consumer for PSP content, we're going to really increase the size and amount of content that's available."

The only problem is that the second hand and reduced games market will also vanish so you will end up paying a lot more in the long run, And you dont ever actually own the content you are pretty much renting it until PSN or the next console comes out.
In Germany it's not THAT bad. But we have slower connections here as well. I don't like DLC anyway. Brick your console and you might not get your content again (if they make it console bound - like mac-addresses or something)
Gimme a nice disk or maybe a storage card (costs a daim if even) and I'm a happy f'in puppy.
The problem with Digital game releases is that it will only be good for certain countries, here in Australia we have possibly the worst broadband network, I get about 2mb/s download 0.5 mb/s upload, and a total of 80gb Download a month for $70, which is pretty pathetic when compared what you guys get in the states.
Digital downloads would only work here if they where available in store, that is you pay a small fee, and you download from a instore computer directly to your PSP.
