Sony’s been quietly ramping up their day one digital releases. Borderlands 2 was the last game that was available both digitally and on store shelves.

Today Sony announced the PSN Day 1 Digital program for the month of October. The following titles will be available on launch day:

  • Resident Evil 6 – (Available for download on October 2nd – $59.99)
  • NBA 2K13 – (Available for download on October 2nd – $59.99/$53.99 for PS Plus members, with pre-order)*
  • Dishonored – (Available for download on October 9th – $59.99/$53.99 for PS Plus members, with pre-order)*
  • DOOM 3: BFG Edition – (Available for download on October 16th – $39.99/$35.99 for PS Plus members, with pre-order)*
  • 007: Legends – (Available for download on October 16th – $59.99)+
  • Medal Of Honor: Warfighter – (Available for download on October 23rd – $59.99)
  • Need For Speed: Most Wanted – (Available for download on October 30th – $59.99/$53.99 for PS Plus members, with pre-order)*
  • Assassin’s Creed III – (Available for download on October 30th – $59.99)*
That’s very impressive for a console manufacturer. They’re sweetening the deal by giving 10% off for PlayStation Plus members. It’s not a huge discount but it’s better than nothing.

e3-logoAs exciting as E3 announcements are, I actually derive a large part of my E3 enjoyment from GiantBomb’s coverage.

So many great interviews like the John Carmack one I mentioned yesterday and Brad’s interview with The Last of Us developer was enlightening. The Dishonored interview convinced me that this is something I would like to play very much and it’s not just an awesome trailer.

I wasn’t as smitten with what I saw from the Dead Space 3 demo and this interview didn’t exactly sell me on it. Trying to justify all their design decisions by falling back on the overarching fiction is just lame.

E3 2012: Day 2 – Dishonored &
