Two thirds of console games are digital-only

A new report has seemingly confirmed a long-running assumption of the industry – boxed games are on the way out.

The latest GamePulse report from research outlet EEDAR estimates that the number of physical titles released for Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo's machines has more than halved over the last six years, plummeting from 383 in 2008 to just 145 last year.

Simulatenously, the number of digital-only games (EEDAR defines 'digital-only' as not receiving an accompanying boxed release within 90 days) has almost tripled during the same time span.

The story is too old to be commented.
