PSN Day 1 Digital Announced

posted in: Game News 0

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.

Checkpoint: Battlefield 3 Beta Edition

Is it really a beta or a glorified demo? It’s a beta. Or at least, that’s what I hope it is because the Battlefield 3 open beta is anything but a quality representation of the final product.

Bugs, Glitches & Crashes

Graphical glitches were rampant with random screen flashes, clipping and some of the scariest animation snafus that I’ve seen in a long time.

I can ignore these issues if it didn’t affect gameplay, but unfortunately they did. Falling through the world happened far too often and being killed by seemingly “dead” soldiers can annoy the weak of heart.
