Ultimately, there really needs to a standard. As much as I enjoy the idea of Steam, I do not want to have fifty different Steam-like applications, one for each developer. Unfortunately, this all implies more consolidation of the few companies out there...

As for Sixis, do not fear technology! Though it may take years and years, I think this is all inevitable. It has probably been a good year since I have been to the library, but I have looked up hundreds of things online. Likewise, I send very few letters via snail mail, but I send twenty or so e-mails a day.

That $50 price tag is an issue for games as well. Everything else is going up in price, even if only adhering to the basic rate of inflation, yet games have basically held that $50 price tag or have even experienced deflation with the increase of $20-$30 games. No doubt you can always have a big 'ol box with some crappy inserts sna cheap poster, but those will all cost etra (even if solely looking at percentage of income made from the final sale total) to the publisher/developer relative to online delivery.

Tired of HL2 taunting me from the Steam window :(,
Ray
