Sony have confirmed to TheSixthAxis that Starhawk will be available via PSN this week, in addition to the usual disk release.
Thats great news, but I really dont like how they rip us off by asking for a price of £50 just because its digital download, when you can buy it for £38 from Amazon
It's not going on PSN at this time. “I can confirm Starhawk is retail-only right now but we might release a downloadable version in the future,” he said over Twitter. http://www.thesixthaxis.com...
Finally some fair share.
Lol saw someone ranting on psblog and saying they werent buying this game due to this not being a download option and dylan jobe replied saying he was sorry he felt that way! But fair point i guess , i always go disc anyway as its usually cheaper and i havent upped my hdd
Is it the whole game or just the multiplayer?
full, I believe
I've gone completely with digital downloads over the last year and a half, so this would be nice. Upgrading my 120 GB slim model to a 500 GB HDD has been a great investment. I no longer have tons of games taking up space around the house, and I tend to play more of my games collection now since its as easy a pressing a button, rather than having a game sitting on the shelf wondering if I should bother to put the disc in to play the game.
Yeh, but will the damn digital download version be waaaaay overpriced like many a digital version, as opposed to the hardcopy version which is available cheaper, even though it is more expensive, due to manufacturing, & the whole expense of production, to storehouse, to retail stores, (all these are an extra expense incurred that digital download skips), then you have the whole disk, case, cover slip, instructions, that by all rights & logic, should warrant extra expense.
So, on saying that, it seems that a precedence is being set with these rip off downloadable title prices. It is a joke, & the undeniable truth is that we are being set up to pay full "RECCOMENDED" retail price for our future of predominantly d/loadbale titles. It's only 2 gens away, where hardcopy/disk based machines will be a history lesson.
