EA COO Peter Moore (speaking with IndustryGamers) thinks the move to digital delivery of all video game content is inevitable, and that it could kill some companies.

The companies that have prepared themselves and have diversified their offerings to chase the consumer wherever they want to play games are the companies that will succeed and thrive and flourish. Companies that continue to rely on the old model as the model changes before our eyes, unless they change their ways and invest in the future those companies eventually will die off. No two ways about it.

Very bleak, Peter. Very bleak indeed. But he’s probably right. Someone will cling to the old ways too long and won’t be able to catch up. Probably. Or maybe everyone will heed this warning and no one will be left behind. Yeah!
