Why are there no downloads for new games?
I'm not alone in being spoiled by XBLA, PNS & Steam downloads that I no longer buy discs from the store. It's a waste of time and clutters space for a lot of people.
Just a few weeks ago I made a list of games I was planning on buying this fall/winter
Deus Ex 3, Gears 3, the Halo remake, Rayman, Cod, BF3, & Forza...
Well Deus EX released with no online download on LIVE, and it seems so has Gears opportunity passed without a download.
By the time they are made available I won't care anymore, the excitement will be gone and better games will be releasing by then.
Sure, I'll probably pass on buying any and all of them if this is the case, so will many others.
Sure we'll miss out playing those games on 360, but I'll probably pick them up through ON LIVE for the ones that are available.
Just seems MSFT is missing a huge opportunity here for sales. I'm sure they plan on day and date online availability next gen, but why **** away the opportunity for sales ASAP?
