To my understanding, while the PC retail market is dead as a doornail in the U.S., it is still doing pretty decently in a lot of European countries.
For example, according to the Newzoo survey, about 2/5ths of U.S. PC entertainment software sales is boxed (i.e. - not digital). However, this value is 2/3rds in Germany, 3/5ths in France, 3/5ths in the UK, 3/5ths in Italy, etc.
I generally agree that retail is risky, but it still represents a good chunk of global PC sales. If you feel a little bit more confident, it might be worth going for retail at least where it still sells.
