Sony says PS3 games are too big to be offered through PSN

PlayStation Network operations director, Eric Lempel, has said that downloadable PS3 games will not be heading to PSN any time soon.

Mainly because of the shear size of ‘em.

“It’s not something we have planned, just because the size of the games is massive,” he told IndustryGamers. “With Blu-ray we can put up to 50 gigs on a dual-layer disc, while [Xbox 360] is still on a 9-gig media. So technically it’s possible, but I think the issue would be, ‘Do you want to download 40 gigs and keep that on your hard drive?’

“I think there’s great opportunity there in the future, and it’s something we’ll always look at, but for the time being it’s not a direction we’re going in.”
