There'd likely be a much bigger push towards digital distribution from the publishers and developers that haven't made the jump yet, for example - creating more competition with the innovative indies that make platforms such as Steam so worthwhile. It's possible that the closure could accelerate advances in hardware too, as console manufacturers rush to get new, digitally-driven devices on the market to compensate for the lost revenue stream.

Not having a mainstream store on the highstreet is just another way of making gaming more niche, which is really not a good thing.
It also removes a cheap way of advertising games, which means they'll need more marketing.
