Rather, it's the sudden uptick in convenience. No more nail-biting drives to GameStop, praying they've got the latest sci-fi epic in stock, and goodbye relentless Best Buy sales clerks. Now, when the urge to splurge strikes, you have two equally compelling options. Preorder and download at midnight on release day, or sample free demos and purchase must-see adventures by flicking a thumb. Capcom's NES revamp Bionic Commando: Rearmed, which sold 130,000 copies its first week, proves that downloads are a good deal for game developers too. While savvy gamers now refuse to spend as much money chasing after single hit titles, they'll gladly shell out double for the promise of instant gratification.
