More on-demand retail hits due for PSN

Sony plans to expand the range of retail titles that are available to download on the PlayStation Store.

PSN content manager Ross McGrath told MCV that consumers can expect to see more titles added following continuing strong digital sales of Warhawk and Burnout Paradise.

It’s likely you will start to see older titles migrate to digital as they reach the end of their natural life cycle at retail,” he said. This can provide games with a new lease of life.”

Recent titles to hit PSN include Assassin’s Creed and 2009’s Red Faction: Guerrilla.

McGrath also suggested that simultaneous digital and retail releases would benefit the Store going forward.
He said: Our first party PSP titles are already released simultaneously on the store and at retail in order to reach all PSP users.

For some products, it will make sense for publishers to provide digital content at the same time as boxed product. This can benefit both distribution channels and grow the market.”
