Here's a thought if bricks and mortar retailers keep going to the wall like their doing at the moment, that leaves us with the Supermarkets and Online stores (with game prices going up) will this mean we all end downloading software from PSN/Xbox Live / Nintendo Network in the future for full retail releases?
Yep your bang on right good sir, thats exactly what will happen, larger companies killed off the smaller ones then they got screwed by online sites and once they cant compete due to loopholes closing all thats left will be supermarkets, they will do what they always do which is to monopolise the market and then charge what they want meaning consumers as is always the case will mostly take the cheap option and download instead, the past 3 years or so has clearly shown people shop as a whole by price above all else and find absolutely any reason to justify it when the harmful effects of that mindset hit home.
I hate change, im old, and honestly even though I also hate kids i would at least like them to have the same experiences of boxed product from stores with damn manuals then on the way home get a magazine and read about other cool stuff on the horizon.
Grrrrrr modern times........ Grrrrrrr
