Harrison: New Generation Will Never Buy Physical Media
Written Thursday, December 04, 2008 By Dan WebbView author's profile
Atari chief, Phil Harrison told EDGE that today's kids will never buy physical media, and digital distribution is the way forward.
"There’s a generation of kids being born today and probably already alive who I’m pretty confident will never buy a physical media product. They will never buy a DVD, they will never buy a CD, and they will never buy a game in a box."
Well Phil, hate to tell you, being one of those "new generation" gamers, that there will always be a place in my heart for a physical, tangible product that he calls "a game in a box".
I'm not sure whether Phil has become delusional and thinks he's become the voice for the new generation of gamers but I've always tended to side with the fact that people like to see what they own ... It makes them sleep soundly at night.
