David Perry corrects GameStop CEO about digital distribution

It seems GameStop CEO Dan DeMatteo crossed the boundaries of sane, well-reasoned discourse while criticizing digital distribution of games. Dave Perry corrects him over at Shacknews:

[...] I hate to think someone this powerful can put out this kind of nonsense in an interview, and confuse professional investors, that might have been interested in the digitally distributed future of the games business. Some developer (or publisher) pitching a digitally distributed strategy might have just been 'thrown under the bus' today by Mr. DeMatteo.

Where to start? Sheesh...

It's a good read, summing up some of the problems with the current distribution system and the current state of digital distribution. Go Dave!
