Report: PSP apps for €5 and under

New store to be shown this week.

Sony's price points for the upcoming PSP app store are lower than those used on iTunes, according to a report.

Pocket Gamer claims that games and applications will go on sale for €1, €2 or €5.

The app store, confirmed and detailed last month, will have "no concept, approval, cheaper tools, shorter QA processes and lower available prices" according to Sony developer relations man Zeno Colaço.

Pocket Gamer reckons the quality assurance process will take just two weeks.

Speaking behind closed doors at E3, Sony said that it was approaching developers about bringing their games to the service, and that one of the first to get involved is Subatomic Studios, which is producing a version of its iPhone tower defence game Fieldrunners for the PSP.

The platform holder is set to introduce the app store to the press at gamescom in Cologne later this week, and it may also feature during tomorrow's Sony press conference, which starts at 5.30pm BST / 6.30pm CET.
