What is the difference between PS3 games and PSN games?

6 replies 10747 views Edited Aug 5, 2012

Was browsing in the PS3 store and under PS3 games I found PSN games.  I'm not sure what they are.  Thanks in advance.

There are some games which are exclusive Playstation Network releases. Journey would be an example.

PSN Games are games made solely for digital download, PS3 games are made for the PS3 but may have been available in disc format but are also now availble digitally.

Yes, PSN games are little titles that are made exclusively for digital download, meanwhile, PS3 games (Best known as Full Games) are Full games generally made by leading developers. These games generally have a higher price range and will also be available for purchase as a disked retail game.

if you downloaded it, it should be in a bubble under games.  then you need to open that to install the game to play it

PS3 Games have a disc based version but maybe able to download. PSN games are strictly downloadable from the store no disc based version. Infamous is PS3 game; Castle Crashers is PSN game
