XCOM: Enemy Unknown Playstation Store

Any of you Duders know if this might be coming to the Playstation Store. Where I live it is typically much cheaper to just buy digital. I've googled this to no end and used the search tools almost everyday to try to find out an answer to this query but I am finding nothing.

Maybe someday, but it might be a while. Rockstar (a division of 2K Games) has moved all their games to PSN, but I don't know how 2K itself is embracing it.

Borderlands 1 was free for PS+ members for a few weeks around the launch of Borderlands 2, so obviously somebody at 2K head office thinks PSN's somewhat unique features are worth taking advantage of.

Though that's not the same as embracing day 1 digital downloads of retail games. Dishonored is available from PSN right now, but XCOM is not; if XCOM didn't appear on day 1, I suspect that means they want to wait quite a few months for it to cool off before they put it out on the PSN store.

Bioshock 2 is a 2k game as well that is on there so I wouldn't be shocked if it was brought over. Did Civ Rev make it as a digital download?

Thanks for the feedback. I hadn't thought to look at what other titles 2k games put up on the store. Playstation Store is pushing this day 1 digital idea, but the 8 games they are showing now are mainly AAA titles. I'm not sure I understand that logic other than if it's just a "lets test this and see how many copies we can move to test the viability of this delivery method". Alas, I may yet have to wait until I go back to the States for Christmas. Thanks again Duders!
