I think so I’m afraid as news arose of Sony buying Gaikai for $380M which deal with cloud gaming! most people assumed this news would be announced at E3 last month and if Sony buying Gaikai wasn’t enough news to assume we’re heading to a digital gaming age, EA have announced they will be going 100% Period! although EA say they won’t be dropping out of the retail game just yet! but in the near future it will defiantly be 100% digital with steaming and cloud storage!

 

I used to think it was the worst idea for gaming going digital, just because I enjoy owning a game, a disc and the box but for the time being I think it would be a great idea to have retail and digital approach. if people don’t have easy or regular access to retail to purchase a new game and have a good connection they can just download it and don’t have to wait a couple of days god forbid a week or longer. but honestly I’m not looking forward to the whole industry going digital purely cause I don’t have a very stable connection.
