All Playstation 4 Games to Be Available as Digital Downloads
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 02.26.2013



Sony says that while games shall still be available on physical disc for the Playstation 4, all titles will be available as digital downloads as well. Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida spoke with the Guardian and revealed the news. Check out the highlights:

On the digital download plans: "PS4 will be similar to PS Vita in that every game will be available as a digital download, and some will also be available as a disc...The Witness will be a digital release and because of the flexibility of the digital distribution scheme, we can have more small games that might be free or available for a couple of dollars, or different services like free-to-play or subscription models."

On a potential Spotify-like subscription service: "As more and more services and contents become available digitally, we'll have more of an option to create attractive packages. So hypothetically we can look at different models like a cable TV company. We could have gold, silver or platinum levels of membership, something like that. We can do subscription services when we have more content especially now that we have the Gaikai technology available. With one subscription you have access to thousands of games that's our dream."

On Sony not showing the PS3 at the announcement: "We have not finalised the hardware yet and decided not to try to get it finished in time," he explained. "Also, it's a long time from February to launch, we have to design our communication in phases. Our focus here was to show some games and talk about the key principles we wanted to save the unveiling of the actual console."
