Electronic Arts Predicts the Demise of Videogame Stores

Andrew Wilson from Electronic Arts is predicting the end of buying games from your local GameStop or its equivalent in the near future. The change will not come in one fell swoop, but rather a migration of gamers to digital downloads and streaming.

Vested interest or not, Wilson might not be far off on his prediction. It could be a question of when, not if, as we've already seen a big chunk of PC game sales migrate online.
