Don't look now, but the digital revolution is upon us.
As more and more people opt for downloadable versions of games, the industry continues to shift in that direction. Today, Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) has announced a new PSN Day 1 Digital program, which will bring some of the year's biggest games to the PlayStation Network on the same day they hit store shelves in brick-and-mortar stores.
As of October 2, those with PSN accounts can log onto the Store and pre-order select titles before they arrive. When they do become available, they can be downloaded for the same retail prices we see in the shops. Furthermore, Plus members receive 10% off. As for the titles in question, they don't get much bigger-
As I said, some seriously huge titles there. Said SCEA Senior Director of PlayStation Digital Platforms Jack Buser:
"PSN gamers have been ecstatic with recent day-and-date digital launches of AAA games like Mass Effect 3 and Borderlands 2. Our upcoming ‘PSN Day 1 Digital’ lineup in October is exceptional and demonstrates our commitment to delivering the best games to the devoted PlayStation community as soon as they’re available. Additionally, with our new PlayStation 3 models on the horizon offering up to 500GB of storage, there’s never been a better time to experience PS3 games digitally through PSN.”"
