Blizzard believe the "time for simultaneous digital and boxed is coming"

Game publishers have been very vocal of late about how consumer purchasing and distribution of games is changing and it is inevitability that the market will experience changes.

At the weekend during its annual BlizzCon event, Blizzard’s Rob Pardo told GIBiz in an interview that the time for a simultaneous digital and boxed released of all its online games is coming. (Blizzard, Industry, PC, Rob Pardo)

Eventually all software will be sold by digital distribution. This is the start of the long transition from brick and mortar to total DD. I would guess, but I bet I am correct. That the next generation of gaming (i think 8th) will be all digital for PC and consoles.
