Shift from physical to digital - imminent?
In General Discussion
Apr 18, 2018
You can definitely see a shift in the focus on digital release. I think that we will continue to see the main triple A titles in a physical format because in retail, there is always that impulse purchaser. The triple A devs have the money to market and advertise their games well, so they will always be visible to the public, and little Jimmy and Suzy will be tugging at Grandma's sleeve to buy these games when they see them in the store. Right now, we have seen a lot of smaller developers release games physically, but eventually it may not be cost effective for them to produce a physical version. With that said though, we have seen an increase in shelf space at the store where they have just download code cards on peg hooks for both movies and games...hopefully this trend doesn't completely take over.
