Gamestop, known locally as EB Games, have released figures showing that the take-up of digital gaming continues to improve strongly year after year.
Overall sales figures are down on last year by 4%, but most interesting is that used game sales are way down by the order of 15%, something that Gamestop attributes to “fewer new titles released throughout 2012 and less promotional activity”.
Digital sales are way up: 40% up on last year in fact, and Gamestop’s global e-commerce sales have jumped by 20%. When even Gamestop is noticing the digital shift, you know it’s time to start embracing those downloads.
