This was the closest I could find. Almost like it was scrubbed from history! There was also another incident where the PSN was down for like a month. I thought THAT was the "ApocalyPS3" but I guess I was mistaken.
Also there are certain games that you buy in store but only get part of the content. There's a Tony Hawk game that's only a few GB on the disc but you have to download the rest. Games like Resident Evil Revelations 1&2, Overwatch, etc on the Switch gives you half the game on the card and you have to download the other. There are even games you buy physically and only get a download code in the box.
Well that doesn't have much to do with physical or digital, but it is such an odd thing, didn't heard it before, cool.
PSN yes I do remember the 1 month or so blackout.
And yes a lot of Switch games aren't full games on media, but in PS4 I think only 1 or 2 games I bought was like that.
But I'll agree with you that even on physical media we have been going a road of less ownership and that is regretable.
