System 3 has announced that the sequel to 2009’s SuperCar Challenge will only be available as a download via the PSN. The launch of the game in September is the start of a ‘dramatic shift’ away from packaged products.
“Having recognised the potential in digital downloads some 18 months ago, we have kept our powder dry, preferring to gauge market and consumer reaction while quietly planning a download strategy to steal a march on our rivals,” said System 3 CEO Mark Cale.
“Obviously we are not moving away fully from boxed product as we are committed to maximising our games across all formats – and Wii games, for example, are still only released as a physical product.”
“But we have been extremely proactive in working on a full digital onslaught for a long time and they don’t come much bigger than the first – Ferrari.”
The title, ‘Ferrari: The Race Experience’ will hit the PSN on September 16th; the price has yet to be revealed.
