Not to hijack your thread, but a better debate would have been exactly how or when physical sales on consoles would die off.
Eg. Do we see digital prices remain at like $60 and then physical versions of the same game go up to like $70? Or do they ax physical versions altogether and only bundle a physical disc along with a digital code for the game with Special/Collector editions of the game priced at like $99+?
That's where I see them going, I see physical copies becoming treated like some sort of Premium collectors type product. Or te claiming that physical copies have to go up in price due to "covid"... (everything's Covid's fault apparently)
