Sony States that people are not that interested in Online Purchases
Physical copies are not going anywhere anytime soon
Sony has stated that people are not that interested in purchasing games through the digital network, and the demand for physical copies of video games are still quite high and are not going anywhere.
This is what Guy Longworth (PlayStation Marketing Excecutive) has told Gamesindustry.biz regarding what consumers want when it comes to buying games via online or retailers.
“I think the reality is this: Our digital business is growing fast, and we have incredibly strong partnerships with our key retail partners as well,” Longworth said. “What we try to do is offer a relatively level playing field and let the gamers decide. We’re not trying to advantage them, we believe in consumer choice.”
“It’s clear that the vast majority of the people want to go down to GameStop, or Best Buy, they don’t want to buy it online right now,” he added. “How that might change in the future is kind of hard to predict. People might be quite surprised, I think physical games will be around a lot longer than some people think.”
