Svensson told Gamasutra, “I’d like to say that within five years, certainly well north of 50 percent of our revenue will be coming from digital, and significantly higher than (50 percent) of our operating profit will (come from digital).”
While he stated that retail will always have a place in the company's future, "retail’s role will shift from planned purchase to impulse purchase, predominantly, and planned purchases will increasingly happen online, just for sheer convenience’s sake.”
“And certainly sometime before five years from now, every game will be digital and retail day and date (same release),” he predicted. “On some platforms that’s already the case, it is on Vita. In Europe, the PlayStation is already that way. I wish it were that way in the States here as well. But I’d say that’s an inevitability. No one is really fighting that, but the question is when that will occur.”
At the moment, Capcom is having issues with one particular retail chain, as GAME is unable to stock either Street Fighter X Tekken or Asura's Wrath this coming Friday.
