I recently decided to move my entire gaming activity away from the PC (and steam) to a console for many reasons, including my reluctance to constantly upgrade my PC. Since I already had an Xbox 360 laying around I figured that would do. After my first Xbox Marketplace game purchase I realized that only Norwegian content was available and Xbox Live won't give me any English content (Conversation with Xbox Customer Service here) I decided to scrap the Xbox and try the Playstation 3 instead.
Before I buy one though I'd like to confirm that it's possible to purchase and download games using some kind of marketplace service. If Xbox Marketplace sucks donkey balls and PlayStation 3 requires physical game disks I might just stick with the PC after all
Thanks for any info on the hopefully existent online PlayStation 3 game acquisition service
Followup questions if you cba:
- Can I install physical game disk games to the PS3 in order to play them without the disk?
- Does the PS3 have a service for backing up my game save files?
