Sony to Offer Movies and Games Online
According to Smarthouse, Sony is getting into the video and game distribution business via its online strategy. Big surprise, I know. This is something they’ve talked about a lot.
Supposedly Sony would save 30% of the retail value of a game if the game is distributed online versus sold in the store. With the amount of software they sell, this could gain them millions of dollars of additional profit.
I’m not so sure that I really care. I personally like to buy my movies and games in physical form. It’s nice to know there’s a physical disc sitting there just in case the version stored on a hard drive somehow gets destroyed.
