I would assume that there will be a digital version of the game, however, I do not believe that it will come to the store until, at least, a few months after the launch date. This is all just speculation based off of what previous game developers have done in the past.

I wish there was some sort of mandatory thing every developer when releasing the disc version of the game they can also release the full digital download version too. So its optional and ppl could also pre order on psn store the digital downloadable full game. And receive the dlcs thru downloads somehow.

Unfortunately, publishers have to appease retailers. There have been fall-outs in the past when publishers have released digitally and stores threatened not to stock any of that publishers games. Can't remember who it was now. I doubt we'll see digital distribution that widespread until the next generation.

Although I'd love to download LBP2 digitally so that I don't need to worry about the stupid disc, it upsets retailers when games are released digitally at the same time as there retail release. It's obviously only a matter of time before digital downloads over take retail.  Retailers want to try and stop that from happening. But despite digital sales becoming more and more popular, publishers still make the majority of their money at retail. So publishers need to stay on good terms with retailers if they want there game to sell well.

Most probably - but as mentioned above, it will not be released until a while after the hard copies are. 

 

It will be quite a hefty file, and personally I wouldn't recommend you get that version, rather buy it in disk form.

 

I agree with you, that would be a useful tool. :)

Duno, depends on how you put your disc in, do it like me on a good day noramly and safe then yes its perfectly fine, but on a bad day I THROW THE DAMN THING IN THE AIR AND THEN SPIN KICK IT INTO THE PS3! WHILE SHOUTING HI-YU-KEN! Then do a epic pose.

 

Took me a while tho to get the pose right.

I don't suppose it's worth pointing out to HELLYEAH1982, who has resurrected an ancient thread which deals with ancient information, that it is now possible to purchase and download LBP2 from the store and has been for several months.

 

One need only look. It's £19.99.

I'm not interested at all to see how you do tricks in putting disks in your PS3, and answer QuietlyWrong, the problem is that LBP2 in America is not in the store, I would need to create an European account and register my card to download ... thanks for the tip had already heard that in Europe was in the store.

@HELLYEAH1982 - oh, I had no idea that LBP2 hadn't hit the US store yet. Seems odd. If you went by the comments in the SCEE blog updates every week you'd think that the US got everything three or four years before us. As it turns out, that's only true 90% of the time.

 

These are the 'European' forums, so unless you state otherwise, people may tend to assume you're in one of the SCEE territories. Sorry 'bout that.

 

Still, it's probably only a matter of time...

Well, mainly the assumption in my case was that the game was available in all regions. HELLYEAH looks and sounds like a North American. And if you assume that a game in the UK store is also available and probably cheaper in the US store, you'll be right about 99% of the time.
