Among the games that will be available to download on the day of release are 'Assassin's Creed III,' 'Resident Evil 6' and 'Dishonored.'
The folks at Sony have announced that eight of the biggest upcoming games will be available to download on the same day that they arrive at retail, and some even come discounted. If you have a PlayStation Plus membership and decide to preorder 'Doom 3: BFG Edition,' 'Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit' or 'NBA 2K13' you'll get a 10% discount on your game.
It's not a huge discount by any means, and there's no word on whether you can pre-download the games or not, but it's nice to see that Sony's trying. Even if the effort isn't that impressive.
