Will digital downloads be cheaper? They should be!
It would give us a reason to download directly rather then buy hard copies, it would cut out shipping costs, casing, discs, paper, manual..... if it is not any cheap we should get at least an explanation.
it wont be because of greedy corporations that never offer to split the savings with the end consumer that paved the way for them to become what they became today. welcome to profiteering 101...they save money, they keep money, they try to charge more through
new microtransaction/sub models of gameplay whilst still charging you a high $60 upfront fee.
in the short term no... they will be the same.. will we see DL only sales... YES... in a few years will DL versions be cheaper.. YES... and please do not give me that but the 360 DL versions are more expensive than the used copies... lets not go there again
I know with all the push for digital only I would think that the price would be less to give people an incentive to purchase digitally. Digital copies definitely cost less then physical. So why not pass a percentage of that savings off to the customer.
That would be a win win and would help get people on board with digital only.
I don't think GAME will last much longer I can't see people queuing up at a midnight release in the cold for something like COD when they could purchase it digital and play it straight away while it's downloading
