Shuhei Yoshida, the head of Sony Worldwide, revealed all PlayStation 4 games will be available for download and compared the console to the PlayStation Vita, according to a Feb. 26, 2013, Digital Spy report.
According to the website, Yoshida 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.”
He continued, “’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.”
Yoshida likened the new setup to a cable TV company that charges for subscription packages.
He said, “With one subscription you have access to thousands of games…”
Digital Spy reports the PS4 has an x86 CPU, 8GB RAM, and enhanced PC GPU.
