Amazon Game Downloads?

A report on Gamasutra relates an analyst's theory that Amazon is planning an online store where games can be purchased for download. Lazard Capital Markets analyst Colin Sebastian sent a note to investors saying online job listings indicate this plan is in the works, quoting listings calling for "an experienced senior software engineer to lead the design and construction of next generation, breakthrough online video game and software distribution technology," and saying that Amazon is "changing the video game and software digital distribution market and quickly expanding."

MP3's can't have DRM. It's not part of the file format. It would have to be some kind of other file.

(Other answer: Amazon MP3s are DRM-free, tagged, named, and have a VBR with something like a 225kbs average. There's a nice downloader app that makes downloading large albums easy (it's not always running). They also have daily sales of music that you may actually want.)
