to all of those people that think that a publisher is going to lose sales by not having a CD version available: you're wrong. i just got done driving around my town to 10 different stores looking for Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. places like Gamestop, EB Games, Best Buy, and even Walmart didn't have a single copy due to the game's popularity. here's the real kicker: the game is DVD only.
with that kind of success, i'm really inclined to think that much more games are going to DVD only releases. the only reason why CD's are even around is because of the music industry. even then, CD's are losing ground to online download services as the most popular form of getting music. trust me: the "golden age" of CD's is long past.
See the struggle of the faithless lot as they negate their time
How low to sink to the depths of their frame of mind
