Sony wants more to embrace digital.
According to a post on Kotaku today, Sony, despite not implementing any of the same restrictions that Microsoft is, still wants more people to embrace digital gaming.
Said Yoshida, “The things we want to see change is to have more people embrace the digital side and have more people connect.”
Koller, Sony’s Vice President of Hardware Marketing, assured that they are still planning to release the “big games” on the PlayStation Store on the same day that they will be released in stores. Said Koller, “The difference between an eight hour download and a 15-minute drive to retail—retail is winning that every time…Solving that with PlayGo… is a big win for the digital side of the business.”
Will digital be the way of the future? Will there be a way to perhaps completely remove a game from your account and drives in order to receive a type of trade-in credit? Will physical continue to be the preferred method for many gamers?
