1. This shows why Sony's gaming division just had it's most profitable year. Digital has much higher profit margins than physical.
2. This also shows why Gamestop has been in trouble. Their alleged allies are competing against them. Normally a console maker and retailer are partners in sales. Not anymore, because Sony and Microsoft have their own online stores (and to a lesser extent Nintendo). If Gamestop were smart, then would look for ways to gradually focus more on Nintendo and less on Sony and Microsoft. The latter two are just throwing Gamestop under the bus anyway.
