Blow says XBLA's Braid is 'feasible' on PSP

If you've got an Xbox 360, you've most likely have 1) heard of Braid and just how amazing it is or 2) already have it and enjoying it as we write this. Needless to say, those without the green-lit box have been sidelined and left curious like a child peering into a toystore window. However, Braid's main man Jonathan Blow gives the starry-eyed child in all of us a brief glint of hope as he says a portable version of the game would be most feasible on the PSP if ever there were to be a mobile version.

In a recent interview conducted by Joystiq, Blow was asked about making a handheld version of the game. He responded saying that a DS version would be out of the question and that there would be no way to control the game on an iPhone. While the answers were mostly negative for those devices, Blow had more positive things to say about a PSP version; he cited that a direct-to-download model would work smoothly as the "music streaming stuff in Braid would not work off a UMD." He did, however, say that the market for downloadable titles is still not there on the PSP -- though we'd like to differ as direct downloadable games are appearing every week. Perhaps Mr. Blow would change his mind if the downloadable services for PSP picked up steam.
