DuckTales Remastered flaps onto the PlayStation Network, eShop, and Steam next Tuesday, August 13, but PS3 players will also have the option to wait an extra week and purchase a special boxed edition. It contains a download code rather than a disc, but for those who want to show off that sweet, sweet cover art and rock a collector's pin, what's a few extra bucks?
But why should the PS3 be given preferential treatment? Well, if the rumors are true, other platforms may also be getting a boxed version -- or just the Wii U at least. On Nintendo's info page about the game, a full-on DuckTales Remastered Wii U box is displayed. For typical digital-only titles, that image would instead show the game's title screen with a banner below reading "Nintendo eShop Wii U Download."
I was always planning on buying the PS3 box for my collection, but seeing as how I still don't own a PS3, this would be a more cost-effective option. If it's true, that is.
