There are somethings that I'm sure in life...One of them that it is easy to see is that digital distribution is not the future. It is the now.. Few years and it will take over retail. But it is NOT a positive thing as many like to put it. The game-as-a-service model is very very bad for most of us. You will pay a lot more for games as it is a model based on tighter control. When it becomes the norm you simply cut the retail channel and your online distribution channel can be the only line of revenue. And everything will be done with micro transactions. Right now companies are testing how customers react to this new models. Are they willing to play extra for a few more weapons? Look at all those collector edditions, digital download special editions and so on.
