Although it is highly unlikely that such a decision turns out to be an April fools joke but until tomorrow, we can hope that it is a joke. As you may know that just a few days back, in a statement sent by Sony to Gamereactor, it was announced that starting April 1, 2019, Sony will no longer be offering support for Digital Games through retailers. This is what they said in the statement;

We can confirm that as of April 1, 2019, Sony Interactive Entertainment will no longer offer full games through SIE’s Global Digital at Retail program. This decision was made in order to continue to align key businesses globally. To support full games and premium editions, SIE will introduce increased denominations at select retailers. DLC, add-ons, virtual currency, and season passes will still be available.”

Having said that there is something fishy about this taking place on the 1st of April. We know that such jokes do tend to make the market but there is something extra peculiar about this. Plus for a lot of retailers this would not turn out to be profitable as well as for the fans, it would reduce the easy availability.

While we still hold over fingers crossed there is also a high possibility that Sony actually is not fooling around. We know that Sony has been making quite a lot of changes, like the fact that Sony considers Electronic Expo a thing of the past. Also, you might have heard that Sony will be holding regular PlayStation State of Play Event, trying to keep its fans in the loop.

With all that said, do you think Sony Digital Games not being sold by retailers could be an April fools joke? Let us know in the comments below.
