Sony is definitely no stranger to selling full retail games on the Playstation Store. Their Playstation Plus service even offers bonuses on a lot of the games. The problem is that most of the games have been older releases. Yesterday, Sony fired off their "Day 1 Digital" program that looks to remedy this.
Through October, eight "high-profile" release titles will debut on the Playstation Store on the same day as retail. Some of the games are able to be pre-ordered, or discounts may be available to Playstation Plus members.
As of now, the line-up is as follows:
Resident Evil 6
Doom 3: BFG Edition
007 Legends (Available for pre-order)
Medal of Honor: Warfighter
Need for Speed: Most Wanted
Assassin's Creed 3
According to Sony, we should see another round of games in November.

I've always said that the sure fire way to spot the decline of an mmo's popularity is when it transitions from subscription to free to play. That is almost always followed by the shutdown of the game...not ALWAYS, but ALMOST always.
