Sony makes aggressive push for 'PSN Day 1 Digital' releases on PlayStation Store

Assassin's Creed 3, Resident Evil 6, NBA 2K13 and more available for download via PlayStation Network on release date

Eight PlayStation 3 games will be released as downloadable titles on the same day they hit retail as part of Sony's "PSN Day 1 Digital" promotion. That includes major releases like Resident Evil 6, Dishonored, Assassin's Creed 3, and NBA 2K13.

Some of those titles even come with a 10 percent discount for PlayStation Plus members who pre-order the downloadable version, making them up to $6 cheaper than their on-disc retail counterparts on release date.

While Sony and its third-party partners have already released some PS3 titles, including Mass Effect 3 and Borderlands 2, on the PlayStation Store the same day as their traditional brick and mortar counterparts, the PlayStation maker is promoting key titles throughout October. Here are the upcoming release dates and discount offers.

  • Resident Evil 6 (Available for download on October 2nd - $59.99)
  • NBA 2K13 (Available for download on October 2nd - $59.99/$53.99 for PlayStation Plus members, with pre-order)
  • Dishonored (Available for download on October 9th - $59.99/$53.99 for PlayStation Plus members, with pre-order)
  • Doom 3: BFG Edition (Available for download on October 16th - $39.99/$35.99 for PlayStation Plus members, with pre-order)
  • 007: Legends (Available for download on October 16th - $59.99)
  • Medal Of Honor: Warfighter (Available for download on October 23rd - $59.99)
  • Need For Speed: Most Wanted (Available for download on October 30th - $59.99/$53.99 for PlayStation Plus members, with pre-order)
  • Assassin's Creed III (Available for download on October 30th - $59.99)

The downloadable release of 007: Legends will be available for 10 percent off as well, but only during the first week following the game's release.

At Tokyo Game Show last week, Team Ninja announced it would release fighting game Dead or Alive 5 on PSN the same day as its retail version.
