Report: PC digital downloads top retail sales

The number of PC games digitally downloaded outpaced physical copies sold in stores in 2010, says a market report from research firm NPD Group.

During the first six months of the year, 11.2 million PC games were downloaded through a digital distribution service, the report finds. About 8.2 million PC games were purchased at retail during the same time period.

The report also found retail stores snagged a greater share of dollar revenue compared to digital download services, citing higher prices for physical copies of games.

The top digital retailers were Valve Software's online service Steam and casual retail site Big Fish Games, the report says.
