    Wardell and Newell and whoever else really need to move past the glowering and pointed shoulder-barging and whip their cocks out. I'll provide a tape measure to ensure no unfairness due to differences in curvature. It's getting a bit irritating that everyone "knows" digital distribution has become huge, just not how huge. Unfortunately, I'm not sure I can see what upside releasing actual numbers would have for the distributors.

    Do the same people that complain that games need updating through Steam also complain when they need XBL to get updates for 360 games? (Or whatever the PS3/Wii alternative is)
    Possibly. Some people just don't like patches. Steam's on a PC, though, even if it is arguably trying to position itself as a pseudo-console at this point. While there are some proper - though I'd say minor - problems with it I won't dredge up for the Nth time, I just find its wrapper aspect a bit distasteful. I have enough trouble not considering Windows irritating bloat that has to be tolerated for video games; it'll take me another decade or so to get comfortable with an obligatory launcher that keeps trying to sell me things.
