Sony Computer Entertainment America announced a new digital content program for customers called PSN Day 1 Digital. The goal of this new program is to provide consumers access to digital versions of retail releases of PS3 games on launch day via the PlayStation Store. The program begins on October 1.
Beginning today, PS3 owners can pre-order a handful of select titles ahead of their release dates as well. Pre-ordering these titles will earn consumers a ten percent discount.
Games available through the PSN Day 1 Digital program include Resident Evil 6 and NBA 2K13 (available for download on October 2), Dishonored (October 9), DOOM 3: BFG Edition (October 16), 007: Legends (October 16), Medal Of Honor: Warfighter (October 23), Need For Speed: Most Wanted (October 30), and Assassin’s Creed III (October 30). More titles will be announced and added. The program is currently for North America, though I suspect it will expand to Europe and other regions at some point.
