Although we still don’t know what the PlayStation 4 will look like, Sony (SNE) has continued to release additional details about its upcoming gaming console since announcing it at an event last week. Shuhei Yoshida, the head of Sony’s Worldwide Studios, revealed in an interview with The Guardian that every single PlayStation 4 title will be available digitally and only some will be offered on discs.

The executive also hinted at a possible subscription service that will give users access to thousands of games by paying a monthly fee. He noted that different payment models are possible, using a cable company as an example, Sony could offer “gold, silver or platinum levels of membership,” however this won’t happen until there is more content to be offered.
