MP1st - With the PlayStation 4 firmware update 1.7 just around the corner, Sony is announcing that those who’ve pre-ordered Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs will be able to pre-download it before the game launches on May 27.
I hope the pre load option is available for every release going forward..I'll go 100% digital on current gen consoles.
Big agree, I went full digital with PS4 and this news is more than great. Also, I've taken a day off for the release of Watch Dogs so I'm all set now :)
I'd agree if digital prices weren't so high, they should be 10/15 bucks off because they're digital...most stores do day 1 sales so you can get them 10/15 off day one in stores
Technically they're $5 cheaper in the US since you don't pay tax :)
That's where I'm debating on using this pre-download. I have a few games I want to trade in and Gamestop has a %40 trade in towards watch dogs. I rather use that and get half off or more. But I do like the idea of digital download and not swapping out the media disc and having it ready come 12:01 AM. If the game was $50 dollars then I'd buy it and invest in another future game like destiny. And please refrain back any gamestop comments, that's not the point of this comments.
What stores offer $15 off?
@Roland Best Buy has 10 GC back if you preorder. If you are an unlocked member you get another 20%, im stuck getting all my games at best buy cause of that 20%
idk why people will disagree with you. its good to have options just as long as people know the positives and negatives on the options they are taking instead of forcing you with only one option.
I have to go digital as my PS4 is used for entertainment in a recording studio. I just can't have people walking off with games. I learned that with my xbox360. I can't wait to add the XBone to the collection.
So you're concerned with people walking away with games but not with those same people walking away with your shiny new console?
What are the approximate sizes of the games ?
It depends on the game. Could be anywhere from 2 gigs to 50 gigs.
Why wouldn't it be? It's a system feature
Yes would be awesome to be able to play whenever you hop on!
still a bit odd that season passers get early access to dlc.
So no pre-download for MLB The Show?
I'll be alot more interested in digital versions when the digital edition starts costing considerably less than the physical copy. There is no sense whatsoever in the digital version costing the same amount of dollars. No box, no printing of blu ray disc, no shipping costs, yet no price cut? Something smells fishy. Methinks me smells a bit of the ol' greed. Additionally, when a game I purchase (black ops 2) is a stinker, I return it quickly and recoup almost all my money. I can't exactly do that with a digital edition.
Servers costs a lot of money
You get to play as T-Bone....nice
How big of a download is that going be?
Don't know don't care. Just gonna download.
I'd guess 25-35GB range
Nice! Sorry but all I have is a xb1 for now, will they do that for my console too? I'm all digital this gen..
Download size doesn't matter if it's pre loading you can play at midnight that's all I want
Well I guess I just might PSN this game. wonder how big this games gonna be?
Nice I still like my physical copy but this and a lower price might just swing over to all digital
Wow I was expecting mlb to be the 1st preload title since it comes out next week
bought this from PS Store about a 1 hour ago and seen the option to download and I thought it was a glitch so I refreshed the screen and the option was gone. 1.70 is near! one perk about going digital on the PS4 is if you have extremely good internet you can benefit off of keeping a good amount of HD space by deleting games you don't play. Games you download even if deleted will be in your library available for a quick redownload whenever you are ready to dust off a old game and play again. With all downloads going to your library no matter if deleted or not it still gives you a feeling of ownership to see that the game you downloaded and deleted is still there.
That's cool, but I hate digital games with a passion. I'm all for collecting, owning the games 100%, sharing and trading with my cousin and friends.
Going digital with this, same price, no tax? yep! %#&! hard copies! i like paying for games tax free. I can just quit a game, and go to the next one. Hard copies, take a disc out, and put in another, and gotta wait for it to boot up. On top of that, i don't like trading games no more because they don't give me enough for them, even if they're in good condition! so i'm through with hard copies. Definitely downloading this first chance i get. Digital all the way for me.
I'm going digital download with this game, definitely getting the gold edition.
is that tomorrow? can we play tomorrow?
