360 Magazine: Will triple-A XBLA games discourage gamers from the high street, or can the two coexist?
The high street is dead. Long live trading turnips for videogames down a back alley.
For me i much prefer high street, for me a physical copys will always be better, i like to see something that i have bought not just a little icon on a screen.
Nah. There'll be room for high street in the future, but only for indies and supermarkets. Chain-store specialists will go.
But i hope retail stays.
I'm done with the high street! Long live digital!
"games like Geometry Wars clearly being the inspiration for indie hits like Braid and Limbo" lol what
I think there's room for both retail and digital. As the artical states the music industry does both still. And when does I am alive come out for download?
There has to be room for both, a lot of gamers don't even connect their consoles online. Some, like myself have a bandwidth cap. I can only download 250 gigs a month, using Netflix and downloading demo's and some arcade games pretty much take care of this. I see it eventually being around 50/50, but it'll never be download only, you would totally take away a huge chunk of audience.
ISP's must up their bandwith caps before anybody hopes DD takes over. 250gb a month must cost you a pretty penny IM_KINECTED.
this site is so bad physical is the entire industry, taking that away and you have a crash
the PC market was saved by digital. retail isn't even 5% of the PC market - Epic's Mark Rein said so himself.
actually its more like 50 percent. No offense but epics mark rein is a nobody in terms of analytics.
Oh and the pc market hasnt been saved
I would hope not
