I think should at lease make the prices of those games $10 cheaper.



 

Retail is by far superior to the Download version. The only one who benefits from the Downloadable games is Sony. I mean when Tomb Raider was released it cost 69,99 I mean thats crazy

I think downloading is good for small games. I'll download something like pinball and an arcade game every so often,but I always buy the big games retail.

Yes, but Sony doesn't set the price of 3rd party games.

All their 1st party games are good prices sometimes cheaper than UK retail (Which is ultra competitive)

Although going on the store i have loads of the games from Plus or have already bought so doesn't show the price.

Jak and Daxter trilogy for £9.99 was one of the best deals.

At bolded: Thats fine because "Sony needs to money"!




PSP Lifetime more than PSV+3DS Lifetime.

I never said anything else



I prefer digital because it's so easy to switch between games. I just wish that since you aren't getting a disc and case, you should be paying a lower price. I prefer the convenience of digital though.
