Capcom believes digital distribution is more important than retail for PC games
In an interview with RockPaperShotgun, Capcom’s VP of strategic development argues that for PC games, digital distribution is more important than retail.
Asked “Is digital distribution more important to the PC than retail?”, Christian Svensson said ” For me? Absolutely. No question in my mind.” Capcom also claims to be the leading player in downloads in the console space as well.
I don’t think is surprising, given the poor experience of purchasing PC games in store and the ease (certainly compared with a console) of buying downloadable content on the PC.
Yet more threats to the existence of the bricks-and-mortar stores (although they can still rely on shifting console hardware for a while yet.)
