Chris Taylor on PC Gaming

Gas Powered's Taylor 'PC Gaming As We Know It Is Dead' on Gamasutra reports some comments from Chris Taylor on the state of PC gaming. While he feels PC gaming is dead "as we know it," he is focusing on retail woes, saying that the web is where it's at, and that "Flash is the next console," and that "the web is kicking the console industry's ass."

Why do these guys think that Digital Ditribution is the magic bullet?

You can distribute games digitally all you want but coming back to something I've been saying for years...without a marketing campaign it won't make a diff.

Now lets look at the size of current games and the availability of broadband...

Unless I missed something & the majority of people have broadband well good luck. I have High speed & I bought one expansion pack using digital distribution & I will not do it again unless I have to or if the download speed doubles.

5 minute walk to EB or 15 minutes downloading ?!?!

Years ago I said companies should get together in order to combine marketing efforts & save $$$ let's hope that new group will do so. They better not waist $$ on banners...I almost never look at those & I sure don't click on them. Except to support certain sites...if blues needed funds to keep going I would but outside of that never.
