Teslagrad Hitting Digital and Physical Shelves Soon

Posted by on August 1st, 2014 | 4 Comments | Tags: ,

The magnetic puzzle-platformer Teslagrad from Rain Games is set to doubly release in the next few months.

Digitally, the game will release for PS3 very soon (that’s the best we could get). On the PS4 and PSVita, expect a quarter 4 release. The game released last December on Steam to much acclaim. Based on the Steam price, it’ll probably go for about $9.99 on the PSN.

On the physical front, Rain Games has teamed up with SOEDESCO to stock shelves with Teslagrad around Q4.

Are you interested in buying Teslagrad as a physical game? Why or why not?

    While I usually prefer physical over digital, I’m kinda iffy when it comes to PSN games like this. In particular I’m guessing you’ll have to sacrifice Cross-buy (assuming the game will have it) if you go the physical route. But even so, I’ll probably mostly/only play it on Vita, so I’ll still consider getting the physical version for it (as long as it’s not prohibitively more expensive).

      I’ll probably spring for the digital version. What are the benefits to owning the physical version? Lending it to friends? I’m curious, as the PS4 allows you to carry your games with your account to any system. In that way, lending it pretty simple.

      For me it’s primarily a memory thing. I have a 64GB memory card for my Vita and I already have about 55GB of it filled up, so I still prefer to go physical when I can. I also just like the security physical games offer compared to digital. Sony can technically remove things from your account without even telling you, and there’s always the off chance that something can happen to your account (i.e. someone could hack it and get you banned).

      With a physical game I can always just pop it in and play without much hassle. And since I generally only play one or two games at a time, I don’t really consider swapping games to be that much of an issue. Physical games also just make it easier to keep track of what you have, versus digital where it’s hard to keep all of your games on a system without running out of space (not to mention that Sony still hasn’t made it any easier to sort through your download list).

      All good points, I consistently have to delete games in order to download new ones. I wish their memory prices would go down. Also, the lack of organizational features on the PS4 is astounding. Not sure whose idea that was, but I hope it gets fixed ASAP. Folders are space-age technology for Sony, apparently.
