Well they went from near digital sales to some amount of digital sales. My guess is its not doing too bad, they had a built in customer database of all previous impulse customers to start with, and now they can get consolers who are looking to try some PC games with no fussing over cds.

Not really. With Origin, if you want to play a game you got from it, you mostly need to run Origin. With Steam, if you want to play a game you got from it, you mostly need to run Steam. With Impulse, if you want to play a game you got from it, well, you just run the game. No need to run the client at all.

The only people who they can really advertise to directly are people who need to re-download a game. That doesn't give them a large percentage of the already small percentage of the market they have.
