Whether you want to accept it or not, this industry is moving more and more towards and all digital future. This isn’t to say that physical media will ever go away, but there will come a time when most games are released digitally. With that being said, there are many who are opposed to this.

People like their physical games and they’ll need some persuading to buy a title digitally. Game companies know this and some are already starting to make the necessary moves to sway people over to buying games digitally instead of retail. In other words: we’re already seeing this happening.

Yup, I WAS gonna buy a physical copy of Infamous Second Son, but since you get the limited edition at a reduced digital price I'm getting that. More for less.

i couldn't care less for the digital exclusive content (shudders at the word "EXCLUSIVE CONTENT")the main gripe i have with digital is and will always be the cost over physical copies, solve that and i will be on board with digital

Digital wont take off until they have deals on digital content. Xbox, ps, and ninty all have the same price on digital as physical copies. Which makes no sense at a when you factor in manufacturing costs. Plus having new games top out at 15gb or so and then adding 12gb patch really eats up space. 500gb just won't cut anymore.
Steam is a perfect example of digital media done right. They have cheap games and lots of them. Even if the games are $2.00, since there is an unlimited supply, steam makes up in sheer volume. Unfortunately I won't be going digital on console any time soon. Fortunately though, I have Steam to rely on in the meantime.
