Mark Rein rants on state of PC retail world

Speaking of Mark Rein, GamingIndustry buzz has a little interview with him where he rants on the state of PC games in the retail world.  If you've been into a gaming retail store lately it's hard to argue his point as in most places PC games are relegated to less than a quarter of the space they held just a few years ago (Best Buy seems to be the exception with a fairly large select of titles).  While Microsoft's new Gaming for Windows initiative may help a bit I think the market may be a little too forgone for it to help.  Not that it matters though as digital distribution systems like Steam and Triton are making the entire concept of retail software selling obsolete.
