TenTonHammer Editorial: “Brick and Mortar” stores and the digital age.

Updated Mon, Feb 25, 2008 by Messiah

This week for our TenTonHammer network article we look at the move from traditional delivery methods for games to the digital methods. What are the pro's and con's of moving to digital delivery? Are they worth it? Read on to find out this community managers view.

Over the last several years games have slowly moved more and more to a digital delivery system. While most games are still sold in traditional “Brick and Mortar” stores, those games are generally far from the final game that players end up playing. It is not uncommon for a player to have to download several hundred megs of patches or updates just to play the game they just bought. Also many game players think nothing of downloading demo versions of games that are up to and sometimes over 1 gig in size. This has been made possible by the proliferation of cheap high-speed internet access.

I really don't understand racism in the real world. People are what people are, regardless of skin pigmentation or where their ancestors came from. There's really only one real-world race - the Human Race - and I loathe everyone equally.
