Missing People: The Demise Of The High Street

We now chase the best price for games, and will take a copy that is a few quid cheaper off the internet rather than venture out. You can also pre-order knowing that you won’t end up in a queue around the block come COD launch night, and be forced into a conversation about the merits of the TAR gun over the SCAR with a guy who looks like he only eats breakfast cereal.

These things have chased us from perusing the shelves of games in an actual, real-life shop, with windows and people in them and stuff, into the arms of a digital realm which also might have windows and also has people, but they tend to be less real and more naked. (Culture, Gamestation, HMV, PS3, Xbox 360)
