Locked Out: The Reality of Buying Digital

The digital revolution in the gaming world has given us many changes. Some good, some bad. For $14.99 you can download indie games that would have never seen the light of day 8 years ago. For the same price you can also download a map pack that would have been free 8 years ago. Beyond these changes, however, is a notable shift in the way we pay for our products and what it means to buy something. A credit card is on the verge of necessity and licensing a game is different than buying it. Today, Laser Lemming examines these changes and what they mean for you, the consumer.
