Digital distribution is “the future of gaming” say TIGA

TIGA believe that digital distribution drives creativity and provides more opportunities for small to medium sized game developers, while becoming a second nature to consumers. (Android, Dr Richard Wilson, Industry, iPad, iPhone, PC, PS3, Rebellion, Steam, Tag Invalid, TIGA, Xbox 360, Xbox LIVE)

alot less sales will happen you cant expect alot of us to go digital when its not even fully safe to do so

they need to consider the rest of the world, not just canada *which is where im from* or america for that matter

power is in the consumers so dont be a slave to corperations

The cost of the download could be handled by the distributer since they no longer have shipping cost.

won't happen. Physical will always be around digital can stay an option

It will never go fully digital until gamers no longer matter to their products. People like me will never buy full retail games as digital titles, so they would lose customers. Digital might "take over" but physical will always be there in some regards.

They are already sabatoging the physical format. You watch, one day they will blame the physical disc as the problem (i.e. bugs) and praise online as the solution. They will state that discs need updates anyway so why not make them digital. When in reality online caused incomplete discs in the first place.
