This is what a massive percentage of the gaming population does. But also I think gamers are still prepared to spend annually roughly the same amount that they would otherwise spend whatever the system in place and Steam shows that gamers are not as averse to all digital non-transferable games as they think. Especially when the prices fall in line. Simply any non-core games without a big built in fanbase released for $60 at launch will fail. Games with lower development costs will have to get competitive and go for something like a $40 price point at launch IMO.
