The digital market for games is quickly closing the gap on retail and we'll see downloadable software overtaking retail within "a couple of years," TimeGate CEO Adel Chaveleh has told VideoGamer.com.
In an interview with VideoGamer.com, the Section 8: Prejudice developer revealed he believes the retail market is too difficult for most publishers to compete in.

Go buy it on iTunes or every other outlet that's out there now."
He added: "The gaming market will evolve that way, too.
