Most of the latest Ps3 titles have also become available on Day 1 on the Playstation Network Store, allowing gamers to choose between digital and retail version without delay. Unfortunately one of the most anticipated Sony first party title will not be available on the Playstation Store the same day the game hits retail stores.
God Of War: Ascension has been launched today in North America, with the European release coming this friday. Unfortunately the game will not be available on PSN on Day 1, as confirmed by Rey Gutierrez on the Official Playstation Blog: God Of War: Ascension is not going to be a Day 1 Digital release.
It’s quite strange that a Sony first party title is not part of the Dai Digital Program: there’s probably some other unknow reason behind this but as of now we don’t know any detail.
Ascension it’s not the only recent high profile title to lack a Day 1 Digital release: Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, released during the last days of February was only available on retail during launch day. The game is now available on PSN as well so we can probably expect Ascension to become available as a digital title in the near future.
