Sony shifts focus to digital distribution during summer

Recommended Videos

During the months of summer vacation Sony Computer Entertainment America will not release any first party games in retail stores. Gran Turismo 5 Prologue will be the last SCEA retail game until SOCOM: US Navy SEALs Confrontation comes on September 16. In the intervening months PlayStation Network titles are going to take center stage. PixelJunk Eden, wipEout HD, Elefunk, and Siren: Blood Curse, all of which are downloadable PlayStation 3 games, will fill the gap.

 

Arguably, the PlayStation 3 won’t need strong first party support this summer since Metal Gear Solid 4 comes out on June 12. Also the PlayStation Network lineup looks pretty sweet with PixelJunk Eden and Siren: Blood Curse. However, it’s interesting to note Sony is shifting their focus towards digital distribution.

 

What will happen to the PlayStation 3 owners who cannot connect their console online?
