Sony Sees 'Great Opportunity' in Games-on-Demand

As part of a larger in-depth interview with Eric Lempel, IndustryGamers asked the director of PlayStation Network operations at SCEA about the possibility of Sony launching a games-on-demand service for the PS3. One of the surprise announcements during E3 from Microsoft was a complete games-on-demand service that will enable Xbox Live users to download full Xbox 360 titles. We think it would be great if Sony offered something similar for PS3 games, but Lempel said there's no plan for it... at least not yet.

"It's not something we have planned, just because the size of the games is massive," he remarked. "With Blu-ray we can put up to 50 gigs on a dual-layer disc, while [Xbox 360] is still on a 9-gig media. So technically it's possible, but I think the issue would be, 'Do you want to download 40 gigs and keep that on your hard drive?'"

its possible (Look at Burnout Paradise on the PSN) there just have to be standards. games that exceed above 6-7gbs have to be BD only. it also comes down to how this game would take advantage of the PS3.
