Although Sony has a real love for all things digital; including distribution, Sony Worldwide Studios boss Phil Harrison has dismissed suggestions that the company could make a move away from traditional retail channels in the future.
During a round table discussion with 'semi-official' blog ThreeSpeech he was asked how long until Sony does away with retail.
His response was; "Never - we're not going to do away with retail. But a game that somebody buys at retail is the beginning of our relationship with the customer, not the end," he continued. "I think retailers will be as important to the games industry going forwards as they are today."
