Full Steam Ahead: How Digital Will Kill the Disc

The Escapist: "This week was the first time I paid serious attention to a Steam Sale. I'm an analog guy. Let me choose my poison and I'll buy discs not downloads, paper books instead of PDFs. For an absurdly long time, I still bought CDs and DVDs rather than switching to iTunes and Netflix. I clung to the hard copy because I could sell and lend it. Having a game disc made me feel like I'd bought something tangible, not just the digital rights to consume a piece of media. I liked game stores - yes, even GameStop - because I could browse the shelves at my leisure and talk to the employees about what they've liked recently. Steam sales passed me by without notice."
