This is good news. Digital games do add some convenience – no trips to the store required, quick swapping between games and quick loading – but if the console makers monopolize the digital game market then prices will stay high, although digital games are much cheaper to sell than physical discs. Sony is paving the way by allowing other retailers such as Amazon to sell digital copies. Amazon is already giving a $5 credit and doing a buy two get one free promo today for PS4 games. Let’s hope Microsoft follows suit. Via Engadget
