I've been thinking about the new year. And movies. Yes, this is the "gaming" insider, but there are a lot of parallels between the film and game industries, and one of the emerging trends for video has me thinking about the same application for games. The buzz around digital distribution of video seems to be that rentals stand on the horizon, and will likely appear on mainstream distribution centers in 2008. This is very exciting. I've also been thinking that such a model might be a good fit for gaming, depending on the execution.
