They will all head that way even Sony when they get off the blu-ray bus. Compression software literly gets better everytime a dev comes out with a new game. So IMO Sony, Nintendo, Microsoft and PC will make tons of money from this. Personally I'm tired of buying CD/DVDs that scratch when the wind blows.

Well what do you know an unbiased comment from me, bookmark this sh!t probably not going to happen again.

There are still a large percentage of gamers who are not connected online or have fast enough bandwith speed.

Until broadband can reach every corner of the country, there will always be a place for physical media.

agreed specialguest it's going to be a long time before dial-up is gone for good. Plus it's going to be even longer before there is enough cable in the ground for all in the states to get broadband let alone world wide. Digital Distribution is working but is not ready for the big time
