    MS would be slitting their own throats to make it impossible to buy their next gen games at retail.
    I'm not sure in this demographic whether that's true if I'm honest. Even if it is, opening up a more attractive and barrier free (impulse buying for the win/lose) way to give them money (and potentially make more margin on each game sold, although this is speculative) isn't an opporunity that can be ignored.

    That said, for this generation, I think you're right. But the time these consoles are consigned to CashConverters, disc delivery will appear completely anachronistic - it already does to me.

    So a separate, cheaper SKU with no BD-ROM drive and a larger disc perhaps?
