Remedy CEO wants an end to games retail

An all-encompassing shift to digital distribution would be a forwards step for the games industry, the boss of Finnish studio Remedy has declared.

Remedy CEO Matias Myllyrinne believes a digital-only games ecosystem would help all in the industry, aside from one group he appears to have no sympathy for.

The sooner we go digital as an industry, the better for everybody," he told Edge.

"Better for consumers, better for the developers and publishers.

Maybe it’s not so good for retail, but then again if you’re selling our games as used copies and incentivising people to do that, then I don’t really feel sorry for you.”
