Digital distribution is getting bigger, with EA reporting its highest ever profit in terms of digital sales last night. We already know Steam is a huge success and both PSN and Xbox LIVE are also performing well.
With this in mind, we'd like to know what you think of digital distribution in general? Our main issue with it is that even though you own the game, it never truly feels like your own, publishers have the right to remove games from the service, servers can be shut down.
In a more general sense, if there is a game online only and it's removed, then it's lost forever. Whereas now you can still uncover some gems thanks to second hand stores, with digital games this cannot really happen, with only the best games likely to stick around for once reason or another.
Digital distribution has its positives of course, it's fast, convenient and it doesn't give you storage problems. But with a digital future firmly on the horizon, won't there be a part of you that will miss physical copies of games?
