New Warhawk SKU in US

Blu-ray disc sans headset

Until now, PS3 owners wanting to experience Sony's Warhawk game had two choices--download the game directly from the PlayStation Network, or purchase it packaged with a Bluetooth headset. Neither option was ideal.

The direct download version is cheaper, but only the account that made the purchase has rights to play the game. Sub-accounts on the same console are out of luck. And you can forget about taking the game to a friend's house or, let's admit it, ultimately trading it in. As for the retail package, you'll be paying extra for a headset that you may not want or need.

An SCEA rep has now confirmed to the Level Up blog that Sony will be releasing a disc-based copy of the game, sans Bluetooth headset, later this month.

In the US, anyway, the 'tooth-less copy will retail for USD 39.99, the same price as the direct download version. The version of the game with the Bluetooth headset will still be available for USD 59.99. There was no official word on a similar SKU for the UK.

With the new SKU, there is no longer any advantage to downloading the game. Reports of the death of physical media have been greatly exaggerated, apparently.
