Sony Will Stop Providing Digital Download Codes To Retailers On April 1st

At present you can walk in to many stores and pick up codes digital downloads of indie or AAA games, but from April 1st GameStop will only stock cards with monetary values on the them, for example codes for $10 of PSN credit.

"This decision was made in order to continue to align key businesses globally". "DLC, add-ons, virtual currency, and season passes will still be available".

The 14 VR games announced by Sony are: Skyworld, Falcon Age, Ghost Giant, Table of Tales, Jupiter and Mars, Everybody's Golf VR, Blood and Truth, Trover Saves the Universe, Mini-Mech Mayhem, Vacation Simulator, Five Nights at Freddie's VR: Help Wanted, Golem, Luna, and No Man's Sky Beyond.

Powerball to Be Drawn Wednesday With Jackpot Climbing to $750 Million

Digital codes have remained handy for those that don't wish to input personal details into Sony's PlayStation Network, which has had instability issues in the days of the PlayStation 3. This might make things a bit frustrating for users who don't want to purchase physical copies and don't like to offer sensitive payment information online, but it appears Sony is stalwart in its resolution to move forward with the new plan. It's now unclear if Web-based retailers like Amazon will be affected by the decision. Last week, an email uncovered to the latter revealed that Sony will begin prohibiting the sale of digital download codes starting next month.

We also got the news that neon graffiti adventure game Concrete Genie is getting a VR mode. Even so, the PS4 is the lead console this generation and that means a lot of gamers who won't be able to buy digital games in-store for the console they own, which could lead to some of them not bothering to visit their local store at all.
