I hope not because…how much profit can you really do nowadays by selling only those type of games (the old ones which now are targeted to a niche, specific audience)? Is that enough to sustain such a business? I don't believe so and this news made me very concerned about the future existence of the GOG.com website itself.

Something doesn't smell good here, IMHO it smells worse than what they meant.
I agree, I take this as a negative. And I can't be the only one fearing that someday, one of the online gaming companies will close forever, taking all our games with them. It happened to me to a minor extent with Impulse, and it would stink if it ever happened with a platform where I owned a lot of games.
