1jkirchgessner07Fri 7th Sep 2018 I’ve recently become acquainted with Disney’s Movies Anywhere concept. I’d you haven’t heard of it, it works like this: you pay for the digital rights to a movie and then have the ability to watch it on any platform you choose - iTunes, google play, amazon, etc. Your choice. You’ve paid for the rights to watch it whenever and however you want. What do you think...will we ever see a future where digital games are managed in the same way? Imagine buying a game once and playing it on whatever console you see fit. And when consoles upgrade, you still have the ability to play that game, because you’ve already purchased it. I know this model benefits the consumer and not the publisher - and there are issues with chip architecture, etc that could make it impossible for some games to run on newer models. But for the most part, the principal still stands. Will we ever see a point in time where you purchase a ‘game’ once and how you consume it is simply a matter of preference? Thoughts? jkirchgessner07
