The Digital Distribution Revolution: An outlook on PC game sales

MMGN: Have you noticed how PC games have disappeared off store shelves? Specialty gaming stores have a tiny PC section when compared to extensive handheld and console aisles. The limited selection of PC games is also disappointing, with only budget titles and dated releases available.

The story is too old to be commented.

Digital distribution is the future, retail stores should be very very worried.

It's a surprise people still buy from them considering how they charge so much!

as long as there are consoles, physical media wont be going anywhere...especially with the broadband structure in the US not being up to par with countries like Japan

Very good read. Retail stores are dying slowly, which is sad, but it's the way of the future! I can't remember the last time I bought a PC game in a store. Or even rented from a store. Everything is over the internet! The end is nigh.

I know it's inevitable, but I still like retail. :)

I remember when Steam was the most hated program ever.
It has really set the standard for game purchasing though.
