Digital Game Sales Rising, Retail Shrinking
We are beyond peak retail for video game sales, but don’t worry because digital sales are increasing. Statista looked at retail sales from 1996 to 2011 and determined that 2008 was the height of retail sales.
If the next generation of consoles incorporate good digital distribution capabilities than I can picture the end of retail game sales will be inevitable.
Does this mean the death of the used game market?
