The distribution model of computer games has seen changes in the last several years, going from an exclusively brick-and-mortar model to an age of emerging digital distribution. Digital distribution services use a variety of different pricing and copyright protection systems, but they typically set themselves apart by their selection of games.
The latest in these distribution series is GOG.com. The "GOG" in "GOG.com" stands for "Good Old Games," because the service itself is devoted to distributing what the company considers to be "good old" PC games, at a modest price point and free of any digital rights management software. GameSpot had a chance to sit in with Adam Oldakowski, managing director of the upcoming GOG.com distribution service, to discuss the details of the service's unusual business model.
