Video Game Publishers Move Slowly Into the Digital Era

Posted by | February 17, 2012

The nature of video games is changing in the modern era. The days of games produced on media bought in a physical store, touched by human hands, are coming to a close. Market research shows that game sales in stores are declining, while digital downloads are increasing. This means that companies who have embraced the digital market, like Valve with their Steam service, are likely to see great things in the future. Other companies, not so much. The International Business Times has the story.

    Maybe I’m just old, but this troubles me. On a shelf not three feet away, I have maybe a dozen games over twenty years old. Some on floppy disk, the old paper kind. They have survived the computers I bought them for, they have survived the companies that produced them going out of business. I can still play them, trade them, share them with friends.

    Can you say the same about your digital downloads?
