A Peek Into The Advantages of Digital Distribution

With the next generation on the horizon, it seems that now is the time for the big boys to test the water with some new capabilities. Naughty Dog recently told GameInformer that the digital release of The Last of Us will actually be playable as it downloads.

If this is a sign of the future, then Sony customers can look forward to much less of the, currently, daunting, mandatory updates and installs. It's looking like the company is concentrating on streamlining the user experience for the PlayStation4, which is an area where Microsoft currently hold the advantage. Could we be seeing a shift? All will become clear soon.
