Last week we informed you that there's a very good chance that the copy of Patapon 2 you buy at your local retailer will be nothing more than a box with a booklet and a download voucher. Well, that turned out to be true and Sony has sent out an image displaying exactly what you'll find within your Patapon 2 box.
So if you needed an illustration, here are your pictures of the coupon and booklet. It's nothing special, obviously, and you're best off probably avoiding the hollow case and just opting for a straight download via PlayStation Store, which will also save you $5. While I personally enjoy my physical copies, for games such as Patapon 2, which are fairly small in size, it does make more sense for Sony to just make them downloadable titles, instead of spending money on manufacturing thousands of UMDs, and the like.
Patapon 2 is the first PSP to be given this treatment, and if Sony considers its experiment a success, consider it not the last, as this may very well become the future of the PSP platform as a whole. With the new PSP rumored to be free of a media-drive, downloadable games are something you may have to get used to in due time.
