The digital future is here. You can now go on the internet and more or less buy any piece of media you want with the touch of a button. This has been huge in the gaming world, and digital purchases are slowly gaining a lot of ground.
To illustrate that point, it turns out that Fallout 4 sold more digitally than physically. That’s according to the game’s director Todd Howard, who spoke with GameInformer recently. He said:
I think you lose a little perspective when making games, and you’re happy that it got done. You hope that when it comes out, it’s really good, and sells like crazy. That’s what’s in your head. One of the things that is amazing: Fallout 4 sold more day one digitally than at retail. That’s a big change.
That is a big change, indeed. And I expect that number will only get higher, as convenience slowly wins out. I wonder what that ratio will look when Fallout 5 comes out.
So the tide continues to shift to the digital future...
