Full price games on Live?

Not any time soon, says Microsoft's Xbox man

While Xbox Live already offers gamers a variety of content for download direct to their 360's, Microsoft's Peter Moore has stated that he believes it will still be some time before full price games will be downloadable through the online service.

"I would be very surprised if full games are available for download in even the medium term future," Moore commented in an interview with Edge magazine. Mr. Moore did, however, recognize that the widespread use of digital distribution is inevitable but will ultimately be restricted by "the consumer's ability to have that fat pipe come to their home and the availability of huge hard drives."
