EU PS Store update: Mass Effect 3 DLC, Ninja Gaiden Σ2

If the price doesn't put anybody off Tomb Raider then knowing you have to be signed in to even play it should.

Surprised to see MLB 13 The Show on there for PS3. They always get good reviews and I've wanted to try them for ages, but 40 is a bit steep for the download version for me.

until they realise that downloaded games should be £10-20 cheaper than retail and not the other way around i will just not buy downloads. no resale value either.

What a bizarre thing to say.
Some say he's half man, half fish. Others say its more of a 70/30 split. Whatever the percentage, he's one fishy bastard.

Can you quantify how you come to that deduction Sherlock? A few weeks back some one told me that downloaded games should be cheaper as there are less costs involved, yet couldn't produce a single shred of proof for this.

1. No physical media means they don't have to produce a disc for each sale. Pennies per disc, but a saving none the less.
2. No physical box/game manual.
3. No retailer i.e. GAME taking a percentage of the sale, all proceeds go straight to Sony and the developer, payment to Sony may offset this though, depends on the cut they take.
4. No transportation costs. The games have to get to the retailers in order to sell them.

I've seen a few breakdowns of the cost of getting a game to retail, I'm sure you could find them on Google, but all the evidence I've seen suggests digital downloads could easily be AT LEAST £10 cheaper than the retail version.

Is it worth while playing Mass Effect 2 first? I haven't played any of the series either.

YES! Play them both before 3 otherwise the stories won't flow well.
Also saves etc carry over...
