Here’s a novel concept: digital delivery store Direct2Drive is trialling an offer whereby PC gamers can download and rent a game.
Digital download sales might be the future of gaming, but they’re certainly not the present, with a recent study finding that between 80-90% of games bought are still those that come on a disc and are sold in a store.
The PC charts were last week dominated by the likes of Mass Effect 2, Battlefield Bad Company 2 and Star Trek Online. No surprises there. So we’ll instead focus our admiration on Tim Schafer’s Psychonauts instead.
