Sony NGP Games To Get Digital Release From Day One

Sony’s PSP successor, the NGP, is readying to launch later this year and sure to have a great line up of games. The manufacturer is promising that from day one digital release games will be available for download at the same time the physical games become available.


In an interview with MCV, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe President Andrew House discussed their new game distribution strategy.

“One thing we learnt from PSP, is that we want to have simultaneous delivery in digital and physical for NGP. Just to clarify that, all games that appear physically will be made available digitally. Not necessarily all games have to be made available physically. And having the option of a digital-only method affords more creative risk-taking, and that’s because you don’t-have that in-built risk of physical inventory.”

The emphasis on having a strong digital game distribution means that there will be a hierarchy of games. Big high-end premium games are likely still to be purchased mostly in physical form, but lighter more experimental games are more likely to be downloaded digitally. This saves physical inventory on these types of games and allows for more experimentation in new game development.
