We recently received news that retailer Game is to begin selling PS3 titles in a digital format. When you buy the product you will receive a 12-digit code either on your receipt, via email or via SMS message, which is the redeemable via the online PlayStation Store. Game signed the deal with Sony Europe to begin these sales from today, including downloadable games, add-ons and PS Plus subscriptions.
A cluster of 42 Game and Gamestation shops will begin selling this content from today and by mid-September all 620 UK stores will offer the full range of over 50 games. To begin with the games will be limited to Sony’s first party output, meaning games such as MAG, the God of War Collection and WipEout Fury. Available add ones mentioned are Killzone’s Steel Rainmap pack and the Uncharted 2 Siege expansion pack. In time the selection will offer third party games as well.
In terms of price, it will vary per title. Every product will be individually displayed and marketed with a specific price point. For example, the God of War collection will cost £24.99 whereas the Killzone 2 Steel Rain pack will cost only £3.99.
