I have known for a long time that I am more disc-averse than your average person. I understand that there are plenty of people who don't mind managing physical media. That's cool. I can't stand it. But there's something about this whole thing that I don't get. Assassin's Creed 3 came out; I could purchase it and download it on PSN direct to my PS3; I did so. I got a game, Ubisoft got my $60, everybody won. Today I thought to myself "Hey, it would be great if I could grab Lego Batman 2 for the Xbox. Check Xbox live. There's a free demo! But I can't buy the game. "Oh well, maybe I'll pick up Forza Horizon." There's a free demo! But I can't buy the game. What. The. Fuck? I could understand if it was the year 2002. I could understand if Xbox Live (or Playstation Network) didn't exist. But these networks are already in place. They've already built infrastructure, they have my credit card number, and they are able to let me buy some games via download. But the pickings are awfully slim. So completely apart from me complaining about it -- which is a part of this, yes -- I want someone to explain the economics of this to me. I am about 200% more likely to buy any given game if I can buy it online. I can't be the only person like this. To me it just feels like these publishers are senselessly leaving money on the table. Surely I must be missing some aspect of this. Educate me.
