isps have just started getting a taste of the increase of profit from instituting bandwidth caps, they're not going to stop just because we don't like it. what are we going to do? switch back to dialup in self-righteous protest? these claims that physical publishing's days are numbered are delusional even if isps suddenly decide they aren't in business to make money.

these arguments are always falsely polarized, anyway. developers keep more money. splendid. what about we consumers? steam charges just as much as a brick and mortar - often more - for it's releases. i can get boxed copies of games cheaper from any online distributor. one of the primary arguments i recall when steam was being launched was "without those evil, greedy publishers we can pass the savings on to you!"

taking any sides in this bullshit argument if you're not on somebody's payroll is kind of stupid.
