PC Digital Distribution - Boxes Optional

GoozerNation Senior PC Editor Phil Bruton gives you his take on the Digital Distribution craze. Is this the end of boxes?! (Direct2Drive, good old games, Industry, PC, Steam, Target)

Im only buying my PC games digitally on Steam or Origin these days.

I buy alot of games digitally, unless it's a Collector's Edition that I want. Then it's all about the box!

Same here havent gone to retail in 4 years. The only retail game i did buy in the last 4 years was star craft 2. Why buy from retail anyways?

When Digital platforms like D2D and Steam have such good prices. Fall out Vegas is currently on sale for 9usd?

Buying games from retail is just too expensive.

Consoles are next... and I don't know how I feel about it. For PCs it's a simpler decision because you're going to have to install the game anyway and use up hard drive space (which you can upgrade anyway). My 360 (250 GB) would be full if I had digitally bought and installed every game I've owned.

Well for PCs its different, a reason motivating us to buy Digital is because we get extremely cheap prices.

If consoles went mostly digital like PC, the prices would still remain high, because there would be nothing competeting XBL or PSN. Would just be 1 network per console. On PC we have so many platforms now Steam, D2D, Gog, Gamers gate, Origins and many others, all of that helps drive prices down.

Imo mostly digital only for console would be a very bad thing, because MS and Sony would have 100% control over their networks. Lol if the 2 of them decided no price cut, they would be raking profits.

I am the exact opposite as you... I prefer to buy my games as digital version. The only time I don't buy the digital version is when it is not available. I like the convience of not having to look at the physical catalog to load the game up.

I love physical copies due to the amount of HD space needed, and the deletion of old stuff if I wanted anything new.
