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.
