The PlayStation Store Has Begun Taking PlayStation 4 Digital Pre-Orders

Sony has begun their push for digital purchases on the PlayStation 4

Sony has begun taking digital pre-orders for PlayStation 4 games on the PS Store. Interestingly enough, the PlayStation Store promotion of getting $10 back for every $50 you spend is still active through October 29th. With the deal, you can effectively pre-purchase SCEJ‘s Knack for $50 if you plan on going the digital route. Another curiosity is the pre-order of Warframe, a free-to-play game from Digital Extremes, is now active on the PS Store. I’m not sure I’ve ever heard of pre-ordering a F2P title, but it looks like Sony is primed for a big digital push when the PS4 launches.

As a cautionary tale, download sizes for a PS4 game like Knack are likely going to be pushing 50GB, considering the recommended install for Battlefield 4 on the Xbox 360 is over 12GB. Not to mention the little known fact that SCEA release day downloads aren’t available on PSN until 12 p.m. PST. So, depending on where you are geographically that could be anywhere from 1-3 a.m. on the East Coast.

With all things considered, this is a pretty great deal. Getting Knack for $10 off AND being able to spread out your launch day purchases seems like a pretty decent proposition. Especially if you were planning on going digital in the first place.
