Maybe this is a stupid question, but I had this thought the other day.
So yes I was watching ReviewTech USA on YouTube (Yes I know.....) but any ways the guy was ranting about gamestop going out of business, and how that they failed to adapt to a digital market and PC and console are going all digital in the future...and there's no stopping it.
But it got me thinking..on PC there are a handful of online Digital Stores like Steam, Origin, and Windows store competing to sell digital games.
But what about consoles? For Switch there's the Eshop, PS4 has the PlayStation store. But there's no other way to download and play games on those systems....right now I can buy the physical game at a store or online....So there's competition.
But what's the competition for an all DD console? Download cards at Walmart? Is it something where a government has to step in and make the console manufacturer's open up their consoles a little more?
I'm just curious about this, I really don't want to have one option to buy games on a console.
Here's a little article that further explains the issue
