Sony has announced a new initiative set to hit the PlayStation Network this fall. The Day 1 Digital program offers games for download on the PSN on the same day that they are released at retail. The program will kick off with Resident Evil 6 on October 2nd, and give PlayStation 3 users the opportunity to pre-order the content through the network prior to their release.
PlayStation Plus subscribers will also get a 10% discount on any games in the program, which Sony has announced to include some of the biggest releases of 2012.
So far, Sony has announced Resident Evil 6, NBA 2K13, Dishonored, Doom 3 BFG Edition, 007 Legends, Medal of Honor:Warfighter, Need For Speed: Most Wanted and Assassin’s Creed III will all arrive on the service.
Sony’s digital push is starting to resonate through all of their platforms with this latest announcement. The PS Vita currently offers digital downloads for most games, and now with a large selection of titles set to arrive on the PlayStation 3 this fall available digitally, you may not have to go to a retailer at all to experience the best there is to play this fall.
