Just tried to download the wii u that is coming in November off xbox live, no success. Also couldn't find any of the "new" releases of Christmas like CDMW 3 on xbox live. Where did the 20 million people find it?
The 95 million people who bought the wii, couldn't find it on xbox live or even psn either. Will keep looking for the digital download.
May look on amazon, but I don't have a credit card.
It hasn't happened overnight and won't but there may well be a generation of consoles, or lack thereof, that don't require specialized boxes. Could be built into the TV or DVR or other more standard, generic item. Apple TV? I still don't have much faith in OnLive, but that's another avenue. Additionally, GME does not make much margin on hardware, it's the software and especially the used software. If that dwindles, there's not much left. As I said earlier, they may survive, but in a much smaller, different format IMO.
