Sony studios president Shuhei Yoshida has confirmed that every PlayStation 4 release will be available as a digital download as the company shifts its focus to digital media.

“We’re shifting our platform more and more to the digital side – PS4 will be similar to PS Vita in that every game will be available as a digital download, and some will also be available as a disc. The Witness will be a digital release and because of the flexibility of the digital distribution scheme, we can have more small games that might be free or available for a couple of dollars, or different services like free-to-play or subscription models,” he told The Guardian.

Yoshida also discussed subscription services, claiming that Sony may opt for a tiered model, “As more and more services and contents become available digitally, we’ll have more of an option to create attractive packages. So hypothetically we can look at different models – like a cable TV company. We could have gold, silver or platinum levels of membership, something like that.”
