"We're considering a digital only format for the Patapon 2 release as a one time test case as we continue to explore consumer preferences for digital content," Patrick Seybold, Senior Director of Corporate Communications at SCEA said.

"The downloadable game will be available on May 5th at both retail and via the PlayStation Store. We remain focused on providing superior games and entertainment experiences in both the UMD and digital formats and are working closely with our partners to deliver the best PSP line up in our history."

Inside sources at ArsTechnica indicate that the upcoming Patapon 2 for PSP will be distributed solely through digital means. Retailers themselves will not carry UMD's, rather empty cases with the download code for the game.

With a mixture of different gaming features, from social networking to online play, The Hunter provides a sandbox island where patience and careful planning win out over run and gun play.

The game is just recently out in Open Beta, utilizing the same "login to play" system alongside ID Software (Quake Live) and EA (Battlefield Heroes). It's currently free to play after making an account and grabbing a 400mb file from download.
