Speaking with The Guardian, Sony Worldwide President Shuhei Yoshida spoke of moving the platform “more on the digital side”.
Mr Yoshida also suggested all PS4 games will be available digitally, much like those for PS Vita.
He told The Guardian: “We’re shifting our platform more and more to the digital side – PS4 will be similar to PS Vita in that every game will be available as a digital download, and some will also be available as a disc.
“The Witness will be a digital release and because of the flexibility of the digital distribution scheme, we can have more small games that might be free or available for a couple of dollars, or different services like free-to-play or subscription models.”
This begs the ultimate question: will this drive towards digitalism see a further decline of hard-copy games made available on game store shelves?
