Sony partners with amazon for digital games

Post by S7 OC on Tue Nov 12, 2013 5:13 pm

Sony has decided its PlayStation Network (PSN) Store isn't going to be the only place you can purchase digital PlayStation games. Utilizing a model similar to Valve's PC game marketplace Steam, the company will allow online retailers to launch their own storefronts for Playstation 3, Playstation 4, and Playstation Vita titles (although PS4 titles aren't listed right now). As spotted by Kotaku, Amazon launched its US PlayStation Network store today and is offering $5 PSN credit on digital orders -- credit which can be redeemed in its buy two get one free promotion starting at noon ET today. Digital PlayStation 4 games will launch alongside physical titles, making an all-digital game library a reality, but a Sony monopoly over pricing may have affected their overall success in the past. With Amazon's PlayStation Store, and other potential partnerships, Sony will let gamers shop around for the best game deals, just like they did with boxed copies.

Yep, and another cool feature with digital DL's from Sony is that when purchasing via the PS App, you can purchase the digital title and it will automatically turn on you PS4 and start the pre-loading the game, from anywhere in the world.

Also, EVERY single launch title will be available Day 1 digitally, most of which are even available now for pre-order.  Sony is doing a nice job so far with things on the digital front.

Win and win.  I know MS will come up with something to match this, but it will be nice to have this option when I get around to picking up a next gen.
