Today we’re proud to announce another PlayStation exclusive for Burnout Paradise. This fall, we’ll be making the entire game available for download via the US PLAYSTATION Store. You’ll finally be able to join us in Paradise City without leaving the comfort of your home, and you won’t have to get up to put the disk in!
A big thanks to the folks at Sony for making the future of video games a reality now. We’ll announce a release date soon, but in the meantime, it’ll look something like this:
Well I think this is great, because you don't have to pay for staff overheads, hopefully games will be cheaper on PSStore. I still think Burnout Paradise is to expensive in the shops considering it's a January release. But maybe this is the future of Video Gaming? Maybe it's time to get that 120GB 2.5" HDD, you wont even have to put a disk in. I'm guessing youl need to be signed into PSNetwork but this looks like a really good idea imho.
As long as it's not the same price as a disk version (because it's not a physical medium) I'm all for it.
Thoughts? How would MS react?
Edit, I know you can download GT5:P and Warhawk but this is like a true full game!
