No Man’s Sky could get a Blu-ray release teases PlayStation UK boss

Since its reveal at the end of 2013, No Man's Sky has arguably become one of the most anticipated indie games. Whilst it's only being developed by a small team at Hello Games, PlayStation UK MD Fergal Gara has revealed the confidence Sony has in NMS and strongly hinted that it could get a simultaneous digital and Blu-ray release.

Would definitely prefer to buy this hard copy.

tbh i dont think theres a need for a hard copy unless you dont have internet. i remember them saying that the games download side is very small as the worlds are all made as you play and not stored in the game files.

I want a hard copy so if it sucks I can try to get some money back.

I'm like that with every game

Dspdspes1313d ago

Sadly, better a hard copy. Remember P.T……

I am with yarbie on this one. Better to have a hard copy, IMHO

Hard copy...I only do digital if there is a good price discount or game is a decent size, the rest are PS+ games.

Im starting to run out of space on my,gotta delete some shareplay videos. Biggest game (on blueray) for me is GTA V at 60gb

If at this point people have not learnt from the P.T. incident about the dangers of digital downloads, I don't know what to say.

Yeah, I used to be on the digital wagon, but after recent events and failures, I feel much more comfortable with a physical copy. I know that I'm less likely to be involved with a house fire, flood, or tornado than I am to have something revoked because of a failure in corporate beurocracy.

The worlds are proceedural. That just means things are created by an algorithm rather than being a pre-made chunk of stored data. That doesn't mean that they are spooled off of the "cloud".

I would like a physical copy. Digital downloads are not owned, they are just a license to use, and that license can be revoked at any time for any reason. Online DRM sucks.

Yeah I'd love a box copy, having it on the shelf to admire the artwork and it's good for mates who are browsing your collection and might discover a game that they didn't know about.

This might sound crazy considering the infinite size but I'd love a No Man's Sky map! A long time ago I bought a game called Elite: Frontier (Sean Murray has spoken of Elite being one of his inspirations for NMS). And it had a space map in the box that showed the different galaxies. Some games turn out to be so gripping you really want to jump in with two feet.

I would like a hard copy. I'm just anal about having hard copies of my games. Especially most anticipated ones.

italiangamer1313d ago

It is great to see Sony helping this game so much, they sure have lots of faith in it and in Hello Games. It reminds me of the relationship between Sony and thatgamecompany.

Getting a disc copy is better then digital copy, because disc copy means you own it vs digital copy means it can be taken away.

Now that's a quote!! LOL

skulz71313d ago

Also with digital games you have to download them initially which takes time and console memory. Also I love having a collection of games that you can see.

SonyOnly41313d ago

Count me in I would snap that up.
