Windows 7: Game sales surpassed video in UK, says report

Hi there
it's almost IMPOSSIBLE for physical retailers to survive in this type of market.

Software in particular is totally suited to Internet sales -- immediate delivery -- no hassle inside the store and no endless lines waiting to pay on a Sat. Afternoon when people are lining up almost into the street while there is only ONE cash till working -at least that was my experience in Manchester UK recently -- strange when the UK has a stubbornly high unemployment rate --not the only EU Country BTW -- shopping in Paris is a Nightmare at ANY TIME FOR ANYTHING not just software -- although more shop assistants seemed to speak English in Paris than Manchester !!!!).

The profit margin on these games is not very large if you have to support a physical retail presence in an expensive area.

Similarly DVD / CD retailers are suffering too -- HMV for example isn't long for this world in its present set up --it's destined very shortly to join others in that "Great corporation in the Sky".

COMET is another one that's in process of being broken up -- the chain was sold to a venture capitalist for I believe 20 pence (UK) -- about 25 - 30 Eurocents (0.25 / 0.3 EUR). !!!

Cheers

jimbo
