    Maybe, but I doubt it will be anytime soon. So many people use Netflix, RedBox and other places that have already been established. Furthermore, I don't really associate Wal-Mart to be specialists in digital content. I definitely don't see Wal-Mart becoming a game portal like BFG.

    I think it will affect game sales. This is more competition. Knowing Walmart, it will surely try to lower the prices like it does for everything else. It think the prices will get lower once again.

    Does anyone here think it could take advantage of this new player?

    Someone should try and sell premium casual games for 5/69.99 just for fun. :)

    We already saw amazon coming into the space and nothing really changed much. (due to the sole fact of the coming here)
