PC games mainly digital by 2011
Daryl Still, the director of PC games publisher 1C has said that he believes PC games will be mainly digital by 2011.
Speaking to games retail magazine MCV bemoaned the decline of PC sales, blaming the decreasing support for the format at retail.
Still evangelised: "There is still demand, but retail is forcing PC games out. Digital is fantastic, and we're very pleased with it. But it is not us as the developers and publishers driving products to digital - it is because the options for the PC at retail are so limited."
Major high street retailers have been cutting their PC sections to make way for the more profitable pre-owned console games market pushing PC gamers to use download services like Steam and Gamersgate.
