New options for game developers

have an interesting article for the more serious and business minded among us, about Internet Business Models and the new options for game developers. With some games developers making millions and others loosing money hand over fist it is a subject that should be at the front of everyone in the games industry's minds.

The article begins with "Since its inception the games industry has relied primarily on traditional retail models to sell its product", and continues on to, "unlike most products, games can be distributed digitally to end users without using a single intermediary".

Worth a read if you have any thought of getting into the games business.
