Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Isn’t a Day 1 Digital Title on the PSN

For everyone who was currently holding out for a last minute announcement that Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance would be a day 1 digital title on the PlayStation Network, we have some bad news.

That's a little weird, seemed to be the way every game was going.

If we have to use Gaikai for PS3 games on PS4, I hope they actually put all the games up there.

That would be awesome.

so what?

Some of us would have liked to see it as a day 1 digital.

ya and what's the big deal?

The big deal is that Sony usually does these day 1 digital titles and Rising isn't good enough to be on their list. I mean it's already obvious that it's going to be garbage and flop. Even review sites haven't been pushing out reviews early because everyone will know that it's short, mediocre, and not worth buying.

If it ever does become a retail title then it will be later when everyone knows how terrible it is and that's why Sony isn't adding it as a day 1 title.

Meanwhile, it's a big deal for other games (especially the ones that are good and are worth paying for).

Wow troll much Dante...I think someones bitter that DmC flopped at retailers lol.

Ok point at hand 1st publishers foot the PSN bill for a title being put up. If the publisher didnt budget in the added expense then it wont hit PSN until its earned enough to warrent it or the publisher feels that spending more could potentially net them more profits.

Nothing that goes on PSN or XBL is put up by either company unless of 1st party or exclusive deal.

It is a retail title. see ya!

And why would it be? Nobody would buy this garbage anyway. It's a 5 hour crappy hack & slash that's nothing but a cash-in. No fan of Metal Gear would support this trash and Sony knows it.

Sony thought ahead and knew that people who buy it were instantly going to return it the next day and buy something that doesn't suck so they don't want the anger to be on them by releasing something like that early when you can't return it.

I do. MGS fans since the NES days.
HiddenMission  +   1010d ago
MG fan since day on and Im getting it so try harder bro

aw Donte bro, stop being jealous, now we all know your game wasnt that long eihter nor was the story even good, no true DMC fan would buy your game you know, i got to be honest with you though i think your brother was a B!3h, and you and mundus were just so corny no one took you seriously, but when people see raiden they respect him which is odd nowadays, heck im pretty sure people respect nero more than you.

I'm all retail anyway, but it sucks for the people that like their digital titles.
iDotDotDot  +   1010d ago
My retailer isn't getting Rising in till the weekend. I was really hoping for a PSN release so I wouldn't have to wait.
