    Ah I see.

    I get the feeling that once this first print run is up the only way will be digital...

    I'm a digital guy. It's quicker for me to download a game than it would be for me to drive to my local game store and back. I'm all for convenience. The last few physical games i've bought in the last few years have been BF3, Diablo 3 and Guild Wars 2

    Digital gaming will evolve. It will not be as it's now.

    Even retail sales will be digital-like we have PC-steam connection atm.

    You buy game

    Activate code on Digital retailer

    Use disk only as instalation media

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time Re-Shelled

    That about sums it up, there is a pretty long list of titles dropped from the PSN and XBL, many of these titles would of never seen the light of day in a purely disc based market but with the inability to sell digital copies the games essentially are snuffed out.
