The Video Games Industry Is Turning Console Owners Away From a Digital Future

CCC Says: "Last year, the hoopla surrounding Microsoft’s ‘always-on’ requirement for the Xbox One led many in the industry to debate for and against digitalization. Some argued that a digital future is the way to go, quoting examples of Valve’s successful Steam service, while others argued why retail will live on. I can’t deny that there are some solid arguments coming from both sides, but it seems that the industry is also doing a fantastic job at pushing console owners away from embracing a digital future. As someone who is both a console and a PC gamer, I feel that companies like Microsoft and Sony are light years away from replicating Valve’s success." (Industry, Microsoft, Sony, Valve)
