Jaffe: "Digital Distribution Is The Future Of Games"

David Jaffe seems to be well up for digital distribution and believes it's this path of delivery to the customer that will continue the future of gaming:
"3D has mattered, but in terms of microphones and cameras I couldn't give a rat's arse. I'm still trying to get good at making games with just the standard controllers."
"For me, digital distribution was a really big deal - just the fact that we're allowed to see games like Shadow Complex and Flower, games that would never be greenlit for $60 retail products."
"The idea of bypassing retail and speaking directly to the customer is pretty exciting."
Interesting words, from an interesting man. Incidentally, his recent digitally distributed title 'Calling All Cars' has now been shut down for good due to lack of people playing.
