Pretty much agree to all the above. As soon as something can be bought from the comfort of your own home it's game over for anyone selling it in the street.
It was obvious 10 years ago (at least) that the writing was on the wall for HMV, Virgin megastore and all the rest of them.
And being able to buy direct from the developer/publisher is a much better way to do things.....for the time being, right now web games are free to be published by anyone, but in 10 years time the only outlets to reach the public might be just a few huge app stores, and we will pretty much be back where we started again but just in a digital form.
