Everything indicates that the physical format is on its way out, although that hurts those who love to collect video games. A new sign of this is that now a major UK supermarket has made the decision to stop offering physical video games.
According to information from gamesindustry.biz, Tesco, one of the UK’s largest supermarket stores, has made the decision to no longer offer physical video games. This will apply to its more than 2,800 stores throughout the region.
Thus, once the physical video games that it currently has in stores are finished, Tesco will stop offering space to this type of product. Instead we will see digital credit cards that users can use to buy games in the Xbox store, the PlayStation Store or the Nintendo eShop.
According to the store, this is a decision they made because their customers now prefer “digital entertainment.”

It is worth mentioning that this is not the only hard blow that the physical format received in the region. Turns out GameStop closed
all of its 38 stores in Ireland. Thus, consumers have fewer options to get physical video games.
