Day 1 Digital announced by Sony, big titles can be downloaded on the day of their release
Just in case your lazy but have tons of games to buy on October, Sony's got your back on that one. Big titles such as Assassin's Creed 3, Resident Evil 6, Dishonored, NBA 2k13, Medal of Honor: Warfighter, 007: Legends, Doom: BFG Edition, and Need for Speed: Most Wanted can be pre-purchased and can be downloaded on the day the game gets released.
The program is called Day 1 Digital, which gives PS3 owners a choice to pre-purchase the big titles hitting this October. PS Plus members gets an extra treat in this program. NBA 2k13, Dishonored, Doom: BFG Edition, Need for Speed: Most Wanted will have a 10% discount on pre-orders for PS Plus members.
If you're not into have your own physical copy, this would be perfect for you. I still prefer walking up on a store, lining up to get your copy of the game.
This goes to show that digital copies could potentially replace physical copies in the near future. PC games are mostly digital nowadays thanks to Steam, and programs like this pushes that same method into consoles. You will have players with tons of games on accounts rather that in your shelves.
Do you still prefer physical copies of your product? Or are you fine with digital copies?
