Ron Gilbert has said he hopes DeathSpank helps “open the door” for future digital titles on PSN and XBL.

Speaking with Gamasutra, Gilbert said the digital sphere needs interesting games with “more meat on them”.

“[DeathSpank] is very different from a lot of stuff that’s in the download space,” he said. “I’m kind of hoping in a way that it’ll open up the door to the Xbox and the PSN having more games with some real meat on them.

“I’m really hoping this is kind of the future of downloads, and that we can get some really good, interesting games in the download space.”

DeathSpank is out on PSN and hits XBL today, and has been hinted for PC by the creator himself.
