I hope that physical games don't disappear next generation at least. I like to have the box with the manual and the disc. Also, selling the digital version at the same price is disappointing. They don't incur cost of packaging, shipping, and retailers. They should be at most $50.

I fear that if games become all digital, publishers and developers will abuse, just like it has had happened with DLC. They will start implementing any restriction they want, like being online to play an offline game, price the games as they like, restrict the game to one console (or username) which would make it seem as if you rented the game instead of buying it. Corporations are too greedy to let them have a digital only distribution. They won't care at all about the consumer, but the money they make.

Just switch to pc gaming if you want to keep those games forever because you wont be able to trade in/sell them

I hope they do this for Hitman: Absolution in November. That's a game I'll play over and over again and it'd be nice to be able to have a copy on both of my PS3s, so that I don't have to constantly move the disc from one to the other. That said, I don't understand why digital copies are not sold cheaper. You get no physical disc, no physical case, no physical instruction manual, they're cutting out the "middle man" and eliminating any possibility of selling or trading the game. So, where is the justification of charging FULL retail price?
