Industry Execs Predict Digital Will Overtake Retailers As Early As 2013

Going along with what Playdead's Dino Patti said last week about going digital, industry execs are also under the belief that digital sales will in fact over take retail sales starting as early as 2013.

Based on a survey involving nearly 1000 executives, nearly 39 percent strongly believed that this will happen in 2013, 57 percent believed it wouldn't happen until 2015, and 16 percent believed it would happen next year.

Whether or not publishers would all agree to going strictly digital is still up in the air, but Sony for sure will not be giving up on retail copies any time soon.
