XBOX live is always adding new content. New demos and even movies. I think digital distribution is coming a lot faster than most people realize.

Just look at how the music industry is now with the IPOD and all the various MP3 players. I never thought I would see that day. I can't remember the last time I bought a CD.

The movie indusry has already made millions on XBOX Live. It saves them money in the long run bc there are no packaging costs and/or media costs.

It is also a benefit for consumers bc they have the conveniance of not leaving their home. I think it is already going into effect with all of the huge HDDs that are coming out and decreasing in price.

I think HDDVD and Bluray will play a part in this but whoever wins the format war the lifespan of either won't be as long as standard DVD-9.

still buy cd audio, lots of stores still exist.

I was part one of the first users of napster on the market (when they had about 1.5 gigs on the community)

Lets just say its been about 8 years and stores are still going strong in selling physical media.
