hole on. Dont blame any of this on the "digital distribution", Its GAMES overly priced, fake offers and corporate Bullshit salesmanship that has made it what it is today.
People just want to go into a shop and look or buy what they want and leave. NOT having to listen to you giving endless verbal diohorea about offers and fake ass deals just to try and get the customer to pull out more cash that they were intended to spend.
