Game to sell digital PS3 titles Announces partnership with SCEE to sell digital titles in stores in the UK and across Europe.
Europe's leading PC and video game retailer, GAME, announced a partnership with Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) to sell a range of digital games in its stores. Initially, a range of digital titles will be available in 42 GAME and gamestation stores in the UK, expanding to 620 with over 50 titles by the middle of next month.

The range will include full game downloads, game add-ons, and subscriptions to the PlayStation Network (PSN). The partnership with SCEE means that GAME will become Europe’s biggest retailer of digital games, with the widest range of digital titles in the largest number of stores.

It follows the announcement in July 2011 that GAME had extended its range of digital pc titles to 1,200 stores across Europe.

"This is a significant step forward in our digital strategy. For the first time, gamers will be able to browse a wide range of digital titles for the PlayStation Network in our stores, alongside a variety of other digital and physical products," said Ian Shepherd, GAME Group CEO.

"This is important because it offers customers more choice, more advice and more control than they can get online. Our partnership with SCEE means that we can offer customers an unbeatable range and great value across all the gaming channels."

Aren't all PS3 titles Digital? I know I've never gotten a PS3 game on tape.

I don't understand the concept of retail digital titles... It seems like the point of the convenience of digital games has been wiped off the map...

Game has offered Eurogamer an insight into pricing and how you'll receive the digital PS3 content.

Pricing depends on title. "Every product is individually displayed and marketed with a specific price point," a spokesperson for Game told us.

For example, the God of War Collection will cost £24.99, whereas the Killzone 3 Steel Rain Map pack will cost £3.99.

I prefer to have the games on Disc. That way, if the PS3 Hard Drive clapped out one day, with no hope of recovering what's on it without spending a lot of money, I don't loose anything. Never will I buy a Digital Download.
