EA have already put their Burnout Paradise on PSN and now it looks like Microsoft is going to put Fable II on the digital distribution block. GameIndustry.biz reported that Peter Molyneux hinted to the fact that “could be made available as a full digital release on Xbox 360.”
It’s a step in the right direction and will ultimately cut that pesky middleman out. I’m sure the game publishers would like nothing more than to get rid of the need for physical copies and that “painful” used games market. And with this recession, that used games “problem” will only get worse.
I’m sure it sucks to see a copy of your game being sold to another person for $50 while your new copy sits on store shelves.
