Only certain titles will have a midnight release. We'll announce what titles are getting this midnight driops as we get closer to their releases. Either myself or Y2David can update the OP with this information once we have it.

Some good titles, the plus discount is nice as well, I already got RE 6 pre ordered for $45, I was planning on buying Dishonered, the $53.99 is nice, I usually buy most of my games in physical copy though, so I am not sure what I will do.

By the way, is there any pre order bonus`, I know with dishonered you get a DLC pre order bonus if you order online?

still can't believe they are charging full $60 for digital games. Even with the discounts, its over $50. Theres no incentive to get the digital over retail when they are still so closely priced and the retail versions will probably have better preorder bonuses (like for Borderlands 2) than psn. :/

Every major retailer gives Allstar DLC expect for PSN as it looks right now, which is horrible. Also read the fine print it only allows one account Smiley Sad So 2kstore or bestbuy it is.

No thanks Sony. If I want the game I'll get a disk, cool case with pictures, and some reading material.
