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:
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.
