While we're not looking forward to the day when boxed media is gone forever, we seem to be heading in that direction.
With every passing month, more full games that occupy Blu-Ray discs can be found on the PlayStation Network. If you haven't looked, you might be surprised at what's available in digital format; another big upcoming title that will join the digital ranks is Driver: San Francisco . Ubisoft revealed as much at a GamesCom panel last week, although they did add that the downloadable version wouldn't be available immediately. If you don't want to drive to the store, the new Driver will be up on the PSN "a few weeks" after the game's September 6 launch date. We often have to wait for a full game to become downloadable but those days may soon disappear.
Remember when we all thought it'd be impossible to digitally deliver a full game that goes on a Blu-Ray disc? And then games like Burnout Paradise and inFamous become downloadable, and more titles are quick to follow, like Mass Effect 2 . It's only a matter of time before it becomes an option for most every game out there and the next step is inevitable. Oh, happy day. …'cries'
