PSN Day 1 Digital is exactly what it sounds like, and it's something that should have happened a while ago, but I'm nonetheless glad to see it fully realized. Starting October 2 with Resident Evil 6 and NBA 2K13, select PlayStation 3 titles will be available for purchase digitally on the same day retail copies go on sale.

Sony has revealed the first batch of games, some of which can be pre-ordered, and a little something extra for PlayStation Plus subscribers:

  • Resident Evil 6 (Available for download on October 2 - $59.99)
  • NBA 2K13 (Available for download on October 2 - $59.99/$53.99 for Plus members, with pre-order)
  • Dishonored (Available for download on October 9 - $59.99/$53.99 for Plus members, with pre-order)
  • DOOM 3: BFG Edition (Available for download on October 16 - $39.99/$35.99 for Plus members, with pre-order)
  • 007: Legends (Available for download on October 16 - $59.99)
  • Medal Of Honor: Warfighter (Available for download on October 23 - $59.99)
  • Need For Speed: Most Wanted (Available for download on October 30 - $59.99/$53.99 for Plus members, with pre-order)
  • Assassin's Creed III (Available for download on October 30 - $59.99)

Lastly, 007: Legends will be 10 percent off if you purchase it during its first week as a Plus member. The pricing could be better -- these are digital versions, after all -- but at least there is some discounting going on. Let's hope this is successful enough to keep going with further groups of games.

You've got 4 days to buy 35 games from GOG.com before they're gone

One of the assumptions of buying games digitally is that you assume they'll always be available. That's sadly not the case, but GOG.com is offering discounts on 35 games that it will be removing from its catalog on Septe...more
