Spot On: The (new) dawn of digital distribution

Michael Cai, a senior analyst with the industry research firm Parks Associates, similarly believes the era of digital distribution isn't quite nigh, at least not for core gamers.

"The conflict between the publisher, the developer, and the retail channel is going to be a major inhibitor for releasing new games through digital distribution going forward in the near-term," Cai said. "I think [digital distribution of games] is going to be here to stay, but how long it takes to replace the traditional retail channel is going to be a long time."

From the article "Spot On: The (new) dawn of digital distribution," by Brendan Sinclair.
