Ubisoft MD, Garth Edmonson, confirmed to audience in Gamescom that the full disc-released game will be available for download via the PlayStation Network, presumably in line with the retail version’s September 2nd EU launch.
Driver is released on the PlayStation Network in a few weeks, for example. That’s the full Blu-Ray/DVD experience you can download. I think physical media will remain very important, but I think things are going to shift. How long that will take I’m not too sure. I don’t agree that the size of data will be the limiting factor, though, you can store this data on your hard drives.
Edmonson made no mention of a possible Xbox Live release.
