Playstation 3 version of Jurassic Park needs retail disc

posted by SammerHammer on - last edited - Viewed by 601 users

Downloading games over Playstation Network is very slow. Is it really a good idea to make Jurassic Park for PS3 a download only title with no retail release?
I have a great internet connection, but downloading a simple 2 GB demo for a game takes about four hours over the Playstation Network. If I have to download this, are we going to have to dedicate an entire day just to download it?
Please don't do this to us Playstation 3 owners who love Jurassic Park. We need to be able to buy this game on a disc at a store.

  • @Ribs said: No. It doesn't need it, just the same as you don't need to play the game. You would prefer it on the disc, but you'll still get the game if it were released on download.

    Also; 2gb for 4 hours? That means you are only downloading at 142 kb/s, which is a really terrible internet speed in the modern age. You are most likely in the minority of people with slow download speeds.



    The last PS3 update took me 2 hours to download.

  • Hi fans of Jurassic Park.

    I just read a very good news in a video game website in Spain. http://atomix.vg/2011/08/24/telltale-publicara-versiones-fisicas-de-back-to-the-future-en-ps3-y-wii/

    Telltale Games and Sony have reached an agreement for publish games in physical format, (disc). Back to the Future be the first game on disc for PS3 release, 20 October.

    With this agreement Telltale Games can throw any game in physical format.

    Jurassic Park release 15 of November in disc for PS3?. This is true I'll buy my game in disc.

    Excuse me for my English ;)

    I heard that in Eurogamer Portugal: http://www.eurogamer.pt/articles/2011-08-24-telltale-com-jogos-fisicos-da-psn

  • I wouldn't mind that happening. I can't wait for JP, but I would definitely like it if it had a retail disk so the game wouldn't take up space on my HD.

  • I wouldnt mind JP TG on a Disk for the PS3 but to me it's not all that important, if it gets a disk, it gets one, if not I'm more then happy to use up space on my hard drive, thats why I got an upgrade, I also plan on getting it on the 360 so either way I have a disk (yes I'm a greedy person but oh well lol)

  • that would be much easier if there was a retail disc but there wont be

  • bttf got both episode release and is getting physical release. maybe the same can happen with jp

    Yes but Xbox isn't getting BTTF on retail... so it might end up one game exclusive to certain consoles (IE: JP=360 BTTF=PS3/Wii). But everyone should have them at least available through digital distributions.

  • Telltale just landed that agreement with Sony to publish their games on the PS3. The 360 got a retail copy of JP, because apparently they can't put it on Xbox Live (I don't know if this is accurate). Would it be an exclusive retail release on Xbox 360? No, it should not be. Why? With the agreement Telltale just landed there would be no reason not to make a retail release on PS3 also. Us console gamer's LOVE our physical copies, sure I don't mind downloading the occasional game, but if it's a DAMN good game I need a physical copy of it sitting on my library! Call me a collector, but it would be a true shame for PS3 users not to get a retail copy, specially the ones that like keeping their physical copies of games organized.

    I love Telltale to death, and I do download their classic games like Monkey Island, Sam & Max, and Strong Bad. Is never really bothered me too much not to have a physical copies of those games, because I just accepted that the digital distribution is part of the business identity of Telltale. However, now you have Telltale making games on big franchises like Back to the Future, Jurassic Park, and the Walking Dead. These franchises are very well loved by their fans, they deserve a retail release, because sadly not everyone is an active online gamer that knows to keep track of digital releases. Hell, I wanted really badly Back to the Future when it came out, but since it came out on PSN and Live, I din't get it. Now that it came out today in physical copy, I was the first in line at the local store picking up my copy! And I was not alone, my gamestop SOLD out of these physical copies.

    Now, with this agreement with Sony I am truly excited to see releases of Telltale franchises that I can add to my collection... And I would love for Jurassic Park to be among them. Sure, I have a 360 also, but no offense, I would rather have the blu ray of the game :P.
