We can actually calculate the real profitability of the game pretty easily. As a first party, they make around $35 on every physical sale, nearly $60 on every digital sale. (...)

I am curious about this difference between physical and digital. The retailer cut for a $60 game is $12-15 and then there's $3-4 for manufacturing and shipping of a physical copy. What's the rest of the difference?

The returns is technically a bit different and will vary.  But nearly all expenses are eliminated for a first party digital release.
