Let’s face it, we as gamers are trying to fight off the digital revolution. And EA isn't helping by announcing that they will be going entirely digital in the near future. EA's president Frank Gibeau sums it up saying:

"Retail is a great channel for us. We have great relationships with our partners there. At the same time, the ultimate relationship is the connection that we have with the gamer. If the gamer wants to get the game through a digital download and that's the best way for them to get it, that's what we're going to do."

Pretty sure most gamers’ don’t want to buy digital, because we like having the game in our hands and putting it in our consoles. Smelling the new game smell it something that gamers have been doing for years and years. But as time goes on I feel we won't be able to do that anymore.

It won't happen overnight, but when it does happen it will change gaming that’s for sure. What do you g1s think?
