Digital retail will be the end of the High Street. Or not, if these sorts of decisions continue.
As part of this week’s PlayStation Network update, Ubisoft’s recent release Driver: San Francisco – which hit retail on September 2nd – is available to download in full.
That kills off any hopes of retail shifting copies of the PS3 version, right? Wrong. The price for it is an eye-watering £57.99.
Online the game can currently be purchased for £32.86 from ShopTo.net. If gamers try really hard they might find some copies on the High Street for as much as £49.99. Still, at least PSN beats CDWow’s £58.49 price.
Other arrivals on PSN this week include EA’s Burnout Crash (£7.99), Far Cry 2 (£15.99) and Resident Evil HD (£15.99, or £7.98 to PS+ members).
There’s also a big sale on numerous PS3 and PSP sale including £4 off all three Prince of Persia HD titles.
