    Sony wakes up to the idea that day one digital purchases should get preorder discounts just like the disk buyers get: For PSPlus guys at least

    It's kind of been that way with the Vita. I think digital gets 10% off and its not a Plus thing, but primarily just for 1st party games.

    Even so, considering something like 1/3 of the cost to put a disc on the shelf at a store is gone, 10% isn't a good enough discount. Once the license runs out or they decide to close the servers, you lose that digital access which blows. I'd rather actually have something like Steam or how MS originally envisioned the One where you get a disc that gives you DRM rights to a digital copy.

    If only the happy PS4 owners would sell their PS3 on Cragslist, so I could play Journey :)

    I was mistaken, I have a spare Xbox 360 not a PS3, once they hit $299 I will upgrade the one in the theater tho =)

    Interesting... I'd rather have reasons to buy a PS4 than to search CL for a used PS3 to buy for a game or two.

    Sony is announcing a bunch of things at Gamescom later this month. They accidentally leaked that Journey and Unfinished Swan are coming to PS4 a week ago.

    I have an original PS3 that I'm not using much. I wasn't really planning to sell it, but I'd consider it. Shoot me a PM Dave if you're interested.

    I am not market share fanatic but some of you will be interested to know that Sony just announced they have sold 10 million PS4s. That's a significant installed base for a new release and bodes well for developer support.

    That is notable. I just finished the remastered The Last of Us. Awesome on PS4.

    Is "Journey" getting a remaster or download release for PS4? That would completely justify my purchase :)
