There are plenty of reports as to how the PC games retail market is doing very poorly in most cases ( MMOs seem to do ok). And this is something that was confirmed by many developers over ther years, which makes me wonder why are there all the big titles available at retail still? I see PC versions of many games at retail barely break 100k while it is implied they do very good digitally.
So why is the point of releasing retail then? Are they doing more than NPD says, or is it cheaper to distribute them along the console versions? I was always curios but never had an answer.
