That means that select physical games aren't included either then. Only "full games" are located in that ratio.

Well, those are games that I assume were originally digital only before getting a physical release. In any case, I'm still 100% physical myself, and to be honest if future consoles become digital-only I probably won't buy them until they can be exploited so I can pirate the games, since I don't want to pay money for digital copies.

Yup. Partner in crimes, baby !

I am so adamant on physical copies that I don't buy DLC, games that are digital-only, etc. The only exceptions are when I get those gift cards as a present, since I can't really use them for anything else

I admit that I might be not as hardcore like you are. I bought some digital games back when I thought they would never get a physical copy :P

Though, I'll be more vigilant next time !

(Maybe except some DLC like BOTW ... :3)

Very true. There's also cases where some regions only get a digital release, but others get a physical one. Just going by the first page of PSN games, I believe Little Miss Academia is only getting a digital release in the states, where it's both in Japan. Owlboy is also listed as PSN game, but it also has a physical release. 

What the fuck, Little Witch Academia isn't getting a physical release here? That sucks.

Can't find it on Gamestop. In Japan they also got a Collector's Edition. 

Like I said in my edit, I'm pretty sure Sony is including any and all full releases.

Ah, I'm more hardcore than you I guess I would flat-out refuse to get a game if it was digital only, or would import it (like with Corpse Party for the PSP and Resident Evil HD for the PS3, though those were eventually released here on other consoles...)

Man ... if only you knew about the 3DS re-release of it back then :D

That was before it was announced.
