In the shops now! Digital downloads will cost you at GAME
In the future we'll have no need for material possessions because everything will be available via download. EVERYTHING. Girlfriends, sunshine, shoes, failure, even computer games. Downloading provides the customer with instant gratification while the supplier has none of the pesky overheads associated with manufacturing a physical product. It's a pity nobody has told GAME that, as avid Bitterwallet reader Chris points out. Want to download Mass Effect 2 for your PC? It'll cost you:
I can only imagine that the downloadable version will be somehow beamed directly into our brains, giving us the ability to experience hot girl on alien-girl action wherever we are, whether it be at work, in the bus queue or so forth. Otherwise I can't imagine how Game could justify the extra tenner.
GAME may point to the distributor offering discount for a bulk order, which obviously isn't the case with downloads. Still, why the christing hell is anybody going to invest in a download when that extra tenner could get you a crate of Captain Stella?
