Yes that would be a true statement, as evidenced by the dwindling music stores and shelves holding CD's.

Also could be said with DVD/Movies.

Hope Blu-ray thrives. I can't stand the horrible artifacts from the streaming HD videos.

I don't mind virtual copies at all, I have a fast enough internet connection not to care... I hate parking and waiting to pay for something so I rather download it, go smoke a cig, eat or take a dump while the game downloads!

Now, I can see how some people would hate this if they have a slow connection or if they want to download the minute the game goes live.

Steam is the way to go nowadays. Just keep your steam apps folder backed up and you'll never have to re-download anything. Maybe just disc based pc gaming is dying.

I personally hate steam (just my opinion don't hate) because when i buy a game disc, I expect to put it in, install, then play, not plug it in, install steam/other stuff like it, then make a steam account, restart my computer for changes to take effect blah blah blah, then also for steam (I never used steam be4 so sorry if my assumptions are incorrect) if I want to buy games I will probably have to enter my credit card info/personal info ect.. So I don't really trust things like that,
But the main reason is just that I'm paranoid of EVERYTHING (true story)

I've also heard that if you close your steam account, you lose all the games you've purchased through them
