SCEE: "It's our job" to give consumers a choice between digital and packaged


SCEE president Andrew House has said that Sony plans to continue providing customers with the option of both digital and retail releases in the foreseeable future.

Speaking in a Q&A with PS3 users on the official PlayStation Forums, House said it's Sony's "job to ensure that costumers have a choice" between the two formats - which mirrors comments he made last year.

"Disc based content is still very much what the consumer is used to and wants," he said. "However, there has been a change in attitude and technology that is making digital delivery far more feasible and far more attractive.

"It is our job to ensure that consumers have the choice between the two where possible. How this area will evolve, I can’t really say at this time, as we are relying on many things outside of our control, such as broadband speeds.

"Things are changing quickly and we have to make sure we are ready for those changes".

House also said that the company is still planning to release more digital offerings from the PSP back catalog.

Oh - and GT5 is not a myth. It is real, looks "amazing", and will be "out soon".

Good to know it's not $60M worth of vaporware, then.
