    NICE NEWS

    My prayers was heard, we finally have games for new digital content.
    Today I intend to buy FIFA 13 and this list certainly RE6, AC III, and perhaps NBA 2k13 (still dream the day the PSN + will give a sports game 4 FREE.
    Hitman could have in this list too

    why RE6 and AC III will not have 10% off?????????
    perhaps because they know it will sell more than water
    PSN always smart

    I hope they make this a regular thing. It all will come down to pre-orders and sales numbers. I am very excited and I hope this program will continue for the remaining years of the PS3 cycle. At least till I get my hands on The Last of US!

    couldn’t be less interested. I’m a backlog gamer. I’ll save 40% simply by waiting a month or two before buying the games. ACIII is the only game I’m even remotely interested in of the lot anyway.

    Off-Topic Rage Rant:
    As I’ve said time and time and time again. Many gamers are whiny babies.

    Day 4 isn’t good enough it has to be downloadable on Day 1. Then people will complain about downloads taking time.
    Gamer: Ugh. I have to download this game? That sucks. Why can’t I download it before hand?
    Then if they DO implement pre-loading. It just leads to more complaints anyway about why we have to wait this false time.
    Gamer:
    Ugh. I preloaded this last week? It’s on my harddrive just let me play it already.. I mean seriously
    Plus with digital downloads slowing down the network we’ll have to deal with the DIablo complaints
    Gamer: Ugh. I paid for this game. It’s day 1? Why isn’t it running perfectly? I refuse to wait a week before complaining. It’s my game and I want it now

    Wolfkin I am sure this is not what most of us feel about this service. Personally I will be saving as much money, f not even more, as you do by waiting on a game for a few months. I am glad they have included the option of purchasing digitally anyway. For the majority, I am sure they will still go to their local stores.

    well that’s fair. and as I said I don’t really care about D1 downloads and part of that means I don’t hate it. I’m happy for you if you find this a compelling service it just doesn’t really add anything for me and I get tired of reading complaints people should have been able to predict.

    If I am looking forward to a game…I’m getting it day 1 myself.

    This is great for those that would prefer digital copies.

  10. #10 by EdEN on September 26th, 2012 [ 139651 Points ]

    Interesting promo. 10% discounts are nice, but I’ve only got 5 GB left on my HDD, which means I can’t download any game over 2 GB (since it needs double the available space in order to download and install).

    I like the idea of having Day 1 digital release on PSN, but just having 10% off and maybe a theme will not make make change my decision on where to buy it. Preorder bonuses do not even apply to psn digital yet either.

    I like digital copies..but i love the preorder bonuses!
