Digital Release

Hello People! I have a quick question.

Do You know if this game will be released on games on demand? if so, do you know how long will it take? I prefer digital games now and it has come to my attention that new games are getting digital releases earlier, so if you know, any help would be appreciated, thank you.

It will but it could be weeks away as Microsoft don't give a shit about handling digital sales correctly. If you're really lucky, they might get it listed within the week but I'd honestly advise popping down the store and buying it there instead.

Conversely, PS3 owners are able to download and play it as we speak. Microsoft really needs to take a leaf out of Sony's book with digital presales.

They will for next gen, but not sure the same time when next gen is out that 360 will have the same access too for day 1?

It's funny because a lot of people go on and on about how great digital distribution will be on the Xbox One and ask questions about whether or not it will include pre-order bonuses and special offers and all of that stuff has been up and running on the PSN for a long time already. A lot of the time in addition to having the pre-order bonuses included at retail they also offer a slight discount for digital pre-orders and then throw in other bonuses like themes, avatar items and discounts. For GTA V pre-orders they offered 75% off any other digital purchase of Rockstar games, including the bundles. So things like Max Payne or Red Dead Redemption and all of the DLC included were ten bucks with the pre-orders.

Stating facts = fanboy? Nope.

He's 100% correct. Sony have been killing Microsoft in digital distribution, including indie/self-publishing for years. Microsoft is taking steps to fix that with the release of the One, but we have yet to hear many specifics such as how they will handle pre-orders, pre-order bonuses, etc.

While MS has been extraordinarily slow in the past about digital distribution, I've noticed a HUGE increase in speed of availability lately. Most new releases are up on GoD within a week or two now. While it isn't as fast as PSN, it is certainly better than it used to be.

WAs only with the Xbox one they stated on release day digital downloads. So you could have a few weeks wait if its done as whats been as of late, if not could be months, but with it being the biggest game so far this year i think they would be stupid not to put it there asap.

Haha, thanks. That's what I get for selling out my homeland. You'll be happy to know that I'm at a disadvantage anyway because I have to struggle with the PS3 controller to play this game. And I just came across this. Yikes.
