The Force Awakens On Game Consoles

Like the Force, there is a light side and a dark side of purchasing a digital copy of Star Wars: The Force Awakens on your PlayStation 4 or Xbox One. The light side involves the iconic fanfare and a jovial BB-8 rolling across the screen.

And the dark side is the PlayStation 4. No fun at all.

Also like the Force, if you stop and think about purchasing a movie directly through your console instead of more universal digital entertainment services it doesn’t make a lick of sense.

At least the Xbox One tried.
