|Actually, from the publisher's point of view, there is nothing "dumb" about offering a product in a download version only. The price is the same as a boxed version, but their cost is a fraction. The plus side for the purchaser, believe it or not, is generally much better support and more timely updates. Also, generally, you can get a copy of the game on CD sent to you for a small additional fee.
I have dozens of boxed games I have purchased over the years, and just a few download games, but I have had much better support from my download games than any of the big box retailers.
