Quite a few games are available to download that were originally disc only. Download only will kill the used game market if it ever goes to only that.
Only if they figure out a better way of game storage. You can only fit so many digital games on one hard drive. especially since you can't load games on a USB HDD, or swap out internal HDDs as easily as you can external drives. It's a problem that sony and microsoft will have to figure out before digital-only will be a able to take over.
Download only will also increase piracy.
You obviously don't know what you're talking about... And @Decimalator, Just uninstall the games you aren't playing, and whenever you want to play them again reinstall them...It's never been a problem for Steam.
Oh no, I forgot that pirates don't download games, they steal them. Are you serious? You really think that moving from physical copies to purely download only WON'T increase piracy? If anything it removes the middle man. But whatever, believe what you want.
@DragonKnight If you think about it logically, it will make no difference as far as piracy is concerned. Most copies are downloaded via torrents or news groups, so what difference will digital copies make. They will still be downloaded via the exact same medium, no such thing as a middle man as its not like you need to know someone who can get hold of copies, you just google it these days. :)
Damn, I would of definitely bought sly if I didn't have it on blu-ray disc already. So I'll get darkstalkers, and spice things up with some new psn avatars.
PSN's been rocking on full PS3 games recently
Yeah, but they're also only putting up stuff that is 1+ years old. I want same-day digital versions
Talk to the publishers.
DARKSTALKERS!!! Haven't been this excited about a PsONE game since Soul Reaver released on PSN.
It's kind of irrelevant considering you can download the actual arcade version for MAME along with the sequels minus the downgraded quality and loading times.
I'd love a HD soul reaver or even an HD reboot. I think it's been long enough to warrant one.
oh yeah, downloading soon
Opeth is coming to rock band? OPETH IS COMING TO ROCK BAND?! that is frigging awesome! we need more!!!!!
Only Dark stalkers for me this week.
Is it just me or their prices of full games are just ridiculous.£40+ on black ops £54 quid for rayman origins wanna wait and see how much the put call of duty mw2 up for lol
u gotta understand technically 2 people can play on 2 different systems at the same time and that is why prices are high. it used to be 5 and that is why ps3 came out with the recent firmware update to stop people buying one copy or one dlc and sharing it with 4 other friends . you may not do that but a lot of people were game sharing and they had to do it.
@ksense Thats not the reason, PSN has no direct competition for digital copies unlike retailers that have to compete with each other. The price can be justified because of those facts. As an example retailers push it out at £40 instore, if it were £5 cheaper digitally from launch on the PSN retailers would take a hit, why buy produce from the publisher in future if its being offered by the publisher via a digital medium that has no competition. Can you also imagine the hit the PSN store would have taken when BF3 and MW3 came out? 3+ million downloads per game at approx 25gb. per download. As for the game sharing, myself and a few friends chipped in to pick up Payday: The Heist, all downloaded from a single account. Before the Anti-Piracy brigade attack, this is something Sony have endorsed since day one so shurrup!
I think half of these games were released on disc only a year or two ago...
Still would of like to have them keep at least 3 systems able to share, 5 I can get why they would servery hurt them far too generous but 2?I already have 2 systems and its not about me wanting to own a thing on both its about the games me and my buds share if we hadn't put up together I would of never been able to experience scott pilgram(I love that game and game sharing because of it.
