I am getting older, and with age comes responsibility, with responsibility you have less time for yourself… Less time for gaming.
PSN downloadable games are the perfect solution for a lack of time. They don't require many hours of dedication, and they don't command a hefty price tag. You can play them for a couple hours, or just a few minutes. They don't even require you to leave the comfort of your couch. Such accessibility is needed in this fast paced world. Especially for us "older" gamers.
PSN titles, are also the answer for the ever growing development costs that tend to hinder variety and innovation. It allows a developer to take a chance with a fresh idea, no matter how bold, and even if it flops, it won't put the company under. Examples of this have already been seen with flOw, PixelJunk Eden, and the much anticipated Linger In Shadows.
