Sony, or at least Sony Australia, will start offering discounts on digital downloads over their retail counterparts – no doubt annoying the high street shops but pleasing those of us that like their games readily available on the hard drive.
The scheme, aptly named “PSN Day 1 Digital”, will strive to offer download versions on the same day as they hit the shelves, and will also – where available – come with a ten per cent discount for PlayStation Plus subscribers.
The first confirmed games are Dishonored, Resident Evil 6, Assassin’s Creed III, the zombie Craig sporting 007: Legends, Need for Speed: Most Wanted and Medal of Honor: Warfighter.
Quite how the likes of EA will manage with this scheme when they’re seemingly happy to flog games like SSX for ridiculous prices on PSN we’ll just have to wait and see, but it’s definitely sounding like promising news on the whole.
