" Welcome to GB, come for the news, stay for witty banter. To your point - online stores have sales all the time - Steam/psn/xbl all do this. Plus, a $60 downloadable game would become cheaper as time goes, so folks who can't afford it can wait. Also, in theory piracy would go way down, and kill DRM! "Admittedly all I have is a Wii (lol), so my knowledge of PSN and XBL isn't as good. I'm glad to hear they do have sales though. I have heard great things about Steam, and browse through the site myself sometimes, so I had an idea about them.
But still, isn't the PSP Go struggling because the price on their games is higher than what you can find in stores? It's possible I misread information on that.
Sonic 4 in particular is going to be in episodic content online, and there's only 3 places we're going to be able to buy it....I hope they price it reasonably.
