Instead of going through the trouble of distributing Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection in stores, Namco Bandai is offering it as a downloadable title. The game is a full Playstation 3 game that runs in 1080i at 60 frames per second. Similar to the PSP version, the Playstation 3 game has “ghost training” where you train a fighter on how you fight in the arcade mode. Compared to the amount of data a blu-ray disc can hold, Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection appears tiny with around 800 MB of data. Since the cost of blu-ray media is high, distributing full game over the Playstation network can be an alternative for publishers to save money.
