What a strange person.

Why, because he doesn't have that corporate look ?

No... Because he's a strange person. He's like Bill Clinton's uglier, less emotive cousin.

Seems like a nice guy though.

booooooo Game stop is the sole reason the Next Gen Console arent ALL DIGITAL, there holding technology back to make a profit, that blows.

Right, some mass conspiracy where Gamestop is behind the scene pulling all the strings in this massive industry.

Not everyone is ready to adapt to an all digital age yet. We're getting closer to that point on consoles, but this is not the gen for it quite yet. Has nothing to do with Gamestop.

What are you serious? It has EVERYTHING to do with retailers! Games companies like EA Love being able to immediately sell 1 million copies of game to best buy, Gamestop etc world wide, they buy there games in Bulk, Cutting out the DVD rom, would destroy Gamestop, and EA and big companies are to scared to try and sell games themselves, are you for real it has everything to do with gamer retailers.

dunno about GameStop, but I have something to do with the next gen not being all digital. You see. I don't want to buy my games digitally. Call me crazy, but I would not buy an all digital console in the current state that DD resides in.

Just because you like it, doesn't mean that there aren't many others like me, and our money is important to publishers as well. The recent outcry at MS trying to make their console essentially all digital, and using physical as a stop gap to circumvent people's reasons for not wanting/being able to adopt it, should be proof enough of this.

So yes, it has Everything to do with retailers, because retailers serve my, and many others, needs to buy physical copies of our games.
