    Post Do you think Sony follow Nintendo with releasing digital games earlier on PS4?

    With Nintendo releasing their new Zelda title digitally before the retail copy on the Wii U, do you think Sony and/or Microsoft will do the same for all games on their new platforms? I think it would be a great incentive for people to go digital on next gen. Especially since the whole DRM issue is gone im sure both Sony and MS will be looking for other ways for people to purchase digital over physical. what do you guys think?

    Would be a nice move actually, and it would pretty much be like you said which is encourage digital sales. But I honestly don't think Sony would do this anytime soon.

    I think they should do it but doubt they will.

    I would not say Nintendo will make a trend of this as the only game and only reason they are doing this I Zelda (remake) so they can sell the console. They are doing it because they want to make the console appealing and can not wait until they can print retail copies of the game.

    If Sony wants to push digital gaming you will see this happen.

    That would be absolutely amazing! Especially since I'm going digital-only.

    I'd rather see that digital versions got cheaper than physical copies, not like it is now, that the digital version is more expensive than the physical copy. That would definitely get me closer to going all digital. For me the price is more important than having the game a little bit earlier.

    Only time will tell. I just look out for PS4 news all the time.
    One of my favorite spots to hit up for PS4 news is here link.

    If they were gonna do something like that I would expect it to be news worthy so it would be released across the internet. So my thoughts are to keep an eye on Google and other news sites and PS4 sites to see what you can find out beyond that good luck thinking Sony will copy Nintendo.
