Agreed, I think for me it's the box art of certain games that is the deal maker. It's just not the same in that respect with DD.

i like physical media for everything. CD usually cost a lot less the actually downloading full album. Plus you get both CD and then rip it to mp3 player.

Unfortunately a defect occurred during replication of the PC version of Terminator Salvation, which does not allow end users to install the game. The Xbox 360 and PS3 are not affected and function properly. We have recalled all PC copies of Terminator Salvation from retail in North America and are currently in the process of replicating new copies. The new copies will be on store shelves in a few days. A replacement plan for all end users that purchased the defective units is currently being set up. Details to get a replacement copy will be announced shortly. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused the end users that purchased the defective copy.

Oh wow, what a disaster. I doubt they were going to get many sales for the PC DVD version in the first place, but now this... they're going to take some serious losses.

I would go completely digital with all my games if it weren't for Comcrap's bandwidth cap, regardless of cost. Though it is nice to strike a great deal on games that end up in Target's clearance bin. 007: Quantum of Solace is $19.99 on Steam, but I've seen it at Target for $3.47. I bought mine when it was $7.48 and thought it was a deal. That's retail's main advantage, aside from not having to download as much.

I just grabbed QoS @ Target for $7.48. But wtf is up with the 30 FPS cap??
