With barely five days left until GamesCom, Sony has apparently been slapped with another major new leak today as news broke about the price of PSP games for the rumored PSN App Store. According to Pocket Gamer, the upcoming PSP games will be priced at 1, 2 and 5 euros (US 1.43, US 4.28 and US $7.14), which is equivalent to games available in the Apple App Store.
But that's not all, according to reports, Sony has also been actively recruiting existing iPhone developers to bring existing titles to PSN:
Sony isn't taking a leaf out of Apple's book when it comes to easing the process of publishing, however. Games will continue to go through formal console-centric Technical Requirement Check (TRC) requirements, as well as a two week quality assurance testing period. Sony will also actively control the release schedule for games, although considering the current disquiet over Apple's laissez faire attitude to app approval and release, this might not be a bad thing.
