Fearing a Digital Future

By: Addam Kearney

There was a time, not so long ago, when I really loved the idea of a digital future. The concept of having everything at my fingertips without having to worry about a disc drive failing or scratching my discs is, in my mind, the future. It still amazes me that I have literally hundreds of games on my PC, Xbox 360, PS3 and even my phone and will never have to put a disc in a tray to play them. (DLC, Industry, iPad, iPhone, PS3, Tag Invalid, Xbox 360)

What sucks about digital games is that the price breaks are not there yet for console versions of games.

That's because console brands need retail stores to sell their hardware....

My biggest fear about digital-only games, is the possibility that we could end up with tons of shovel-ware. Look at all the crap games you find on iphone. The only I trust to keep a high standard in the arena of digital games, is Valve at the moment.

don't really want to pay the MS price. Every game in Oz would be $100 if they had their way. goodbye clearance sales and bargain bins.

otherwise i don't care. the old school in me likes physical discs but the sloth in me likes my ass on my couch too much
